Past Week
What you missed

Plus favorites.
Apples are their favorite,
I explained to them that's not relevent to this page.

Let's grab a cup of coffee and start with a pdf of an article by Art Shapiro, Covid-19: An Engineer Trying to be an Epidemiologist


Next we join with another Covid-19 solution below:

Foggy glasses while wearing homemade masks? Coughing through a homemade mask, an ICFD/FSI solution


Monday 05/11/2020  -I just need to figure a mask with a straw through it where it is safe.  Then I can have Mask Ala Mode Coffee flavor!  I like it!   NO, you can't use the straw for beer!   It is only a coffee drinking idea.


ICFD LS-DYNA: Coughing flow through porous commercial masks: FSI model adjustment around the face


Monday 05/03/2020  - I'm not sure what I like most - lego's, dreaming that I own a Porsche, or dreaming of owning a Bugatti.   Well since I can rule out owning a Porsche or Bugatti I will name this week's coffee Dreaming with a hint of mocha almond!  I can afford Coffee - Life is good!

LS-DYNA® simulation vs. real LEGO® crash - Porsche (42056) vs. Bugatti (42083) view from left behind

This video shows the crash of the Porsche and Bugatti LEGO® models from a view left behind.

Monday 04/27/2020  - OUCH!   Even watching this video makes me yell OUCH and hold my coffee cup up for protection.  That will work - it is magical coffee  called Kevlar repell with our chocolate magical repell blast spell.

Blast on human torso with SPH Method in the LS-DYNA

Cihan SAVAŞ - Did you ever think that what would happen if blast on human torso is performed ?

Monday 04/20/2020  - To enter my coffee shop you MUST have on your masks.   If you can remember to put on a shirt, or tie, or skirt, or spike heels, you can certainly remember a mask.  NOW, YES you can sip coffee by picking up the mask and not breathing at someone!   I AM MAD at people breathing without masks!  GRRRRRRR, snarl, snap, bite!

LS-DYNA ICFD Solver is used to simulate porous flow through masks.

Monday 04/13/2020  - Guess where I'm NOT taking my truck on our hill!  WHY you ask?  Fine, grab your Coffee To Go and we'll drive, flat terrain, over to YouTube to visit Ameen.


Rollover Analysis of Pickup Truck

Ameen Topa - LS-DYNA Rollover Analysis.   In the starting part of the simulation, the vehicle rolls and falls to the ground due to the gravity load.

Monday 04/06/2020  - AND this week's coffee is called, Pin Ball Wizard with chocolate!  and MORE chocolate so grab that to go cup and let's go play!


Self-controlling pinball simulation using LS-DYNA

Sensors in LS-DYNA are used to activate or deactivate other entities, such as boundary conditions and contacts, during an ongoing simulation. You can use sensors to add complexity to your model and make the model more self-controlling.

Monday 03/30/2020  - AND this week's coffee is called, Yuri with a hazlenut impact flavor!  Grab that to go cup and we will head like a missle to YouTube.  (oh stop groaning, I liked the missle reference)


Yuri Novozilov

Simulation of a soft missile impact on reinforced concrete slab - Sugano impact test

Monday 03/23/2020   - Today we have Blue Tokai Coffee AND another great video from Kaizenat Support.   AND since I live in California Solar is important. 


  FSI(Fluid Strucuture Interaction ) Simulation performed to study the Solar Panel structure Response for the Cyclone Wind load.

Monday 03/16/2020   - I apologize, but I'm exhausted and can't post. Tiki had major eye removal surgery on one eye.  03/30/2020  - He does amazing with one eye - he touches a wall, backs up and goes a different direction -  Dog great, I am a nervous wreck wanting to keep guiding him.  

Monday 03/08/2020 -  Well, since I just replaced my transmission and driveshaft in my Ford Sport Trac, the below is crucial to me! This week we will have UJV. That stands for Universal Joint Coffee and as always with a tad of chocolate! NOW, let's get jogging to YouTube for aerobics for that chocolate calorie intake! OH like an intake manifold?


LS-DYNA - Failure simulation of a universal joint
Simu-K-Inc

Monday 03/02/2020 -  I like this filling simulation because my coffee cups fill like that!  It would be nice to see the coffee swirl into a cup.  SO off we go to YouTube at a jog, for cardio, and then we can drink coffee and have a muffin!


3D Mold filling in Ls-Dyna using level set

 

Monday 02/24/2020 -  At times I think my coffee needs a protective screen!   But it tastes so good I drink it to quickly so I guess we can just visit Simu-K Inc and their below simulation.


Simu-K Inc. - Simulation of a protective screen for tank fail

A multiphysique simulation with LS-Dyna. Liquid is modeled with SPH and the protective screen use finite element with material plasticity.

Monday 02/17/2020 -  I know where I don't want to be standing drinking my coffee!  The simulation below is earthquake - All I can think of is RUN!  Now, that is scary!


LS-DYNA Simulation of the collapse of Takiyya al Sulaymaniyya under earthquake loads has been done in LS-DYNA.

Monday 02/10/2020 -  Well, now I know what my car will look like if I run into one of the below wires. But my vehicle starts yelling at me if I go off the line it wants. It shakes the wheel; it screams - COFFEE USE BRAKE! COFFEE WATCH LANE - you would think it wants to own a coffee shop and has its flavors picked out!


Car impact into wire rope safety barrier

Simulation of an impact of a 900 kg car toa wire rope safety barrier. The situation is similar to an EN1317 TB11 test.

Monday 02/03/2020 -  Cafe Coil is our new product.  It is small and will heat your coffee which is why I have the below simulation.  Pop Quiz - What software rules Heat Transfer?  No coffee for you if you didn't answer LS-DYNA.
