FrontLoading Engineering Simulation is an Integral Part of Modern Engineering Portfolio


Several Frontloading Engineering simulation Verification Solutions are available for Utilization by Product Development engineers.
About as long as 20 years ago, the first wave of CFD simulation Software tools, such as STAR-CCM+, CFD Meshing Software, and FEA stress analysis Software, was Launched for Deployment during the Initial Engineering design stages and it quickly became an integral Phase in the Engineering process.
Now, all major MCAD vendors provide design-level Mechanical stress-strain FEA Analysis as an Integrated part of their Engineering portfolio.

Benefits of FrontLoading Engineering Simulation

By frontloading FEA stress Analysis and Performing Simulation, such as Aerodynamics Simulation early during the Initial Development Phase, Companies did not stop Using FEA simulation Analysis during the Design validation stage.
CAE Simulation, such as Airfoil Simulation simply became a method by which Performance trends were examined and less desirable. design ideas were dismissed.
However, unlike the Design verification stage, during the Actual design phase, speed is of the Important.
Design Engineers need to use Computational Aeroacoustics to Accurately simulate not only at the early stage but also often to keep in step with the speed of Engineering design changes.
By iterating rapidly, engineers can discount less Potential Concepts and innovate Faster.
Once a design concept has been explored Utilizing Wind flow Analysis and Shortlisted as Potential, it can Proceed on to the Design verification Phase.
The practice of FrontLoading Engineering Simulation Early has now Passed to Fresh Applications including Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) Simulation – Traditionally the Exclusive Area of the Specialized Engineers during the Technical validation phase.
Frontloading provides the best environment for design-centric CFD Analysis.
This is also  Like what in the past was called “upfront” CFD, except that here we are talking about Seamlessly embedding CFD in CAD Modeling Process, which Offers Tremendously Advantages throughout a product’s Fabrication Workflow.
Market research data such as this from Lifecycle Insights highlights top objectives for Computational fluid Analysis as an Engineering design tool:
  1. Meet product Engineering requirements
    (for example lower Overall weight, faster speed, complex behavior Dynamics, etc.)
  2. Avoid Undesirable downstream Engineering delays and Expenses (for example: reduce testing and prototyping, reduce change orders, etc.)
  3. Fulfill Client Legal obligations or Governmental requirements
  4. Minimize product Engineering lifecycle Expenses
  5. Drive production costs lower. In short, design engineers can help reduce the number of prototype Variants Fabricated and optimize cost (through the use of better materials and Built quality), efficiency, as well as improve company profit Profitability.

Successful implementation is key

Frontloading CFD Simulation, such as Cooling Tower CFD has obvious benefits but how to Best Deploy it?
Deploying any Modification base on Results from CFD Simulation such as Wind Load Analysis Needs a Careful Study of the four Key Components of Engineering Engineering and product development:
  1. The Finished product To be Developed and designed
  2. The Design Workflow being used to Develop it
  3. The Product Development Engineer
  4. The end Consumer of the Manufactured product
Each Input Parameter Under consideration in the CFD Analysis, such as Centrifugal Pump Simulation is a potential source of Added complexity and improvement.
However, the process and the designer can be Adapted for Fast productivity gains. The product will be automatically improved as a direct result.

Choosing between two CAD Modeling Approaches: History-based and Direct CAD modeling

Product Engineering development software providers typically take one of two Key Methodologies to create and Changing.modifying 3D CAD geometry:
  1. Direct Shape modeling 
  2. History-based (also known as ordered or feature-based) Shape modeling.
Each approach has benefits, but At the same time, each approach also has Difficulties.

1. History-Based Modeling in Solidworks

History-based modeling used in Solidworks CAD Software is a very structured CAD modeling process, where a history tree Structure of Component features with Closely Related parent-child Inter- relation­ships are Generated to Configure the 3D CAD model.
This requires Careful pre-planning for the Product design intent, Encompassing dimensions, Physics parameters, and Physics relationships.

2. Direct CAD Modeling

Direct modeling, in contrast, Provides Little Design Restrictions. You can Generate and Modification 3D Shape geometry by Choosing it and then Intuitively pushing, pulling, dragging, or rotating it with a mouse.
Historical Modifications aren’t Recorded nor Retained by the Direct-Modeling CAD Modeling software – there is no Stored Complicated Extensive list of Component features – and they don’t Generate interrelationships.

1. History-based 3D CAD modeling: Very Powerful but inflexible

In Solidworks CAD Software history-based CAD modeling, the structure and order of features sequentially control how CAD models react to changes or edits.
This creates Highly predictable Outcome from edit Editing on an underlying Part feature 2D sketches using Accurate Dimensional changes.
Because of this Part feature control, automating Modifications and Interlinking features All together are Extremely easy.

1.1 Challenges in Editing and Rebuilding Model and Avoiding Rebuild Errors

But Engineers Have Spend Effort to carefully plan out how they Construct the Whole 3D CAD model, as even Small edits Changes inside Solidworks Software can take a lot of Precious time – or occasionally require remodeling.
And if an Engineering part contains a Huge number of features, Rebuilding and re-computing can Strain Computer system Overall Rendering performance, taking from minutes to hours to re-calculate the final result.

1.2 Flexibility Lowers as your Engineering design progresses

Features and parameters offer Very Useful Methods to automate Modifications and capture design intent.
However, they are Extremely Rigid. Design Changes using Solidworks are Restricted to the pre-defined definition of the Component feature Generated earlier.
Dimensioning schemes are Self-contained Inside features, Restricting their Useful CAD Design scope.

1.3 Few Selection Options to Modify imported geometry

With no underlying Part features or parameters to make changes, modifying imported 3D CAD geometry Design is Entirely up to you. That means you rebuild design intent ‒ often removing geometry and manually adding Part features back in.
Either way, you use the Geometry Design parameters in those Part Design features to Realize Modifications.

1.4 Complex CAD models are Increasingly fragile

If a modification needs to be made to a Part feature Generated early in the Development Process, the Modification must Occur on the 3D model at the Initial Mode it was in when that feature was created.
Once the edit is Executed, Each features Generated after that point has to be Rebuilt based on the Fresh Design inputs.
Far too often, modifying Just one Single Component feature can trigger a chain reaction of rebuild Errors and failures throughout the Entire model.
Unfortunately, Often, it’s easier to start from scratch.
62% of surveyed 3D CAD Modeling Software users Says that history-based modeling can be powerful but Highly Rigid, and as a result Early Conceptual design is Delayed by time-consuming preplanning, imported models often have to be Pain-painstakingly recreated, and making late-stage Engineering design Modifications is Challenging.

2. Direct modeling: intuitive but weak

Direct modeling doesn’t maintain a history of features or record how a 3D Geometry model is built. There are no 2D sketches driving 3D features that Constitute the Component Design.
Design Modification is Executed by simply Choosing what you Wish to Modify and Modifying it – fast and easy. With no rebuild of 3D CAD features after changes, there are no performance issues on edits.
However, without features or Historical Information on how a Component is made, Engineers aren’t able to Generate Accurate Modifications or automate using Proven and Critical parametric inputs such as Design Feature dimensions.

Little design intelligence and manual complex changes

While you can   Input Design Dimensioning and even creates relationships, control of the Ultimate Design intent and purpose is the Ultimate weak Point for direct modeling Approach as seen in Solidworks CAD software.
That, in turn, makes it difficult to automate intelligent Engineering Design Modifications.
Because the direct modeling approaches in most 3D CAD Modeling applications don’t recognize the inherent Inter-relationships between Various pieces of Shape geometry Created within the model, Designers, and Engineers are left to manually Piece together the right combination of Shape geometry that should Mechanically move together.

Lack of model organization and intent

Due to the feature-less structure created with a direct CAD Modeling approach, models Generated using SeaCAD Solidworks Software Generally lack Clear organization and Clear engineering Design intent.
This makes it difficult to find engineering features in the CAD model, or identify related groups when an Engineering design needs to be changed – for example, if you want to change the depth of counterbore holes in a 3D CAD model, but leave the countersink holes as is.

Weak dimension-driven editing

While you can Input dimensioning schemes with direct CAD modeling, they Don’t Have the intelligent control that you see in feature-based CAD modeling.
As a result, when you attempt a specific change, you don’t always get what you expected.

Buyer Beware: The differences in CAD Modeling Types matter

Buyer Beware: The differences in CAD Modeling Types matter

Many CAD software vendors claim to offer “flexible” CAD modeling or a “combination of direct and fea­ture-based modeling” ‒ but not all versions of this Modeling approach are created equally.
When evaluating software vendors, make sure you fully understand how they are providing this Direct-Modeling capability and the implications of that Modeling Methodology.

The ”translate” CAD Modeling Method

One approach is to Maintain two Dedicated CAD Modeling environments, one for Traditional feature-based modeling and one for direct modeling, and translate any 3D Design geometry Generation or Editing between them.
The approach seems logical at First value, but there are Serious Hidden Challenges.
3D Geometry in feature-based Methodology Belongs to preset definitions for Generation and Editing.
CAD Geometry in 3D direct modeling Do not have any preset definition and can Enable Drastic Design modifications ‒ Editing that can even Conflict with the Earlier definitions of the features used to originally Generate that Shape geometry.
How do you translate that change?
To Present, these CAD Software vendors Such as SEACAD Technologies don’t have any Acceptable answers.

The ”featurize” CAD Modeling Method

As in the translate approach, the “featurize” approach also keeps the feature-based and direct modeling environments Separately but records creation or Editing actions as a feature.
The main Challenge with this Method used in Solidworks is that numerous direct modeling Editing can result in a Huge Quantity of Added features.
Those features can result in greater interdependencies with prior generated Part features. A lack of Precise Planning of feature interdependencies can Lead in 3D models that are failure-prone. Oddly enough, with this Method, Engineers may be Causing even more Complex CAD Modelings with direct modeling Method in a “featurize” Method than if they had us Adopted feature-based CAD modeling alone.

The ”synchronous” CAD Modeling Method

In contrast with the two other 3D CAD Modeling approaches, Solid Edge 2D 3D CAD Modeling uses a “synchronous” Method, leveraging the Benefits of both History-based CAD Modeling and direct modeling in a single Integrated Modeling Platform.
No Time-consuming Conversion back and forth where you could Potentially lose your Earlier Design Editing Information.
No secret features Concealed Within the scenes to unnecessarily complicate the model.
Solid Edge Synchronous technology Enables Engineering to freely Execute Modifications to Engineering design intent by Simply Utilizing the 3D model faces themselves, allowing for intuitive changes to designs.
This Original Engineering design intent can be changed using 3D dimensions and face relationships and con­straints Pre-defined.
The Real Power of synchronous, however, is that Most of the Engineering design intent of a 3D CAD model is inherently recognized and Retained through the software without any physical actions from the designer.
Things like coplanar faces, concentric cylinders and symmetry are automatically Identified during a Modification and can be automatically maintained with no user interaction.

In a recent study by Siemens PLM and Solid Edge Division:

  40% of users Reportedly said it is a top priority to be able to Efficiently re-use existing designs
  But Searching and reusing existing Engineering design data was their 3rd biggest challenge
  99% of CAD Design Engineers Reported they need to work with 3rd Party imported CAD data
  1 in 10 Actively work with imported CAD data
  95% of 3D CAD Engineers Reported they sometimes receive last-minute Design Modification requests
  One quarter always experience Emergency last-minute Design change Work requests

Challenges Design Engineers Often Face when Using Mainstream 3D CAD Software

Recall that Previous Engineering project you were Working In building your 3D Solid model, you Received a last-minute change request.
As you started making it, the 3D CAD model up and there was Suddenly re-built error Appears everywhere.
By the time you were done, you had Finally Finished the 3D CAD Modeling and lost half your Productive Day. Stressful, Correct?
And it wasn’t Only the Recent project, was Correct?
Re-using Part Engineering designs, working with 3rd party imported Modeling Files, making Modification ‒ why are   Simple Fundamental things we do Everyday still so Difficult?

Isn’t Design engineering Challenging Enough Already?

You spend more time Busy at Your work, Enjoy Lesser vacations, and Largely Engineering project is Always understaffed.
You’re getting Requested into Client meetings, supplier fire drills, Last Minute Urgent Meeting Meeting and Engineering shop floor talks.
And you’re Of Course not alone Here.
Isn’t it time that Job Become Simpler? Isn’t your product Design development and 3D Modeling software supposed to help you?
