## Deflection of a Bracket

## Deflection of a Bracket

In this example a three dimensional model of a solid bracket with a cylindrical hole is subjected to an external load. The vertical side of the bracket is fixed to a wall (thus zero displacement boundary conditions are applied there), while the outer end of the bracket is loaded with a force of 104 Pa in the negative …

## Deformation of a Spanner

Tutorial example of calculating deformation and deflection in a spanner where the geometry is given in and imported from a STL CAD file. This model is available as an automated tutorial by selecting Model Examples and Tutorials… > Structural Mechanics > Deformation of a Spanner from the File menu, and also …

## Potential Flow Over an Airfoil

## Potential Flow Over an Airfoil

This example models and simulates the flow field around the cross section of a NACA airfoil using the inviscid potential equation. The potential field is here modeled with the classic Laplace PDE equation with a correction for the discontinuity at the trailing edge (the Kutta condition). On the boundaries, there is …

## Topology Optimization

## Topology Optimization

This is an advanced model example showing how topology optimization can be implemented and modeled with FEATool. The model has been developed and kindly shared to us by Prof. Shintaro Yamasaki at the Department of Mechanical Engineering of Osaka University [1]. In contrast to standard simulations where the domain and …
