CAFE team members Darko Frank, Svemir Bralić and Alan Klanac and Igor Juričić, from Intergraph, brought new discoveries of their research in a paper called “CAFEmesher: An Advanced Complex FE Mesh Generation Algorithm Utilized in SmartMarine® 3D Environment”.The before mentioned paper will be presented at the International Marine Design Conference in June 2012. in Glasgow, UK.This paper outlines the importance of providing a designer with accurate strength assessments in an early stage of the design process and also proposes the solution for bridging the gap between CAD and FEM software tools to overcome the repeated modeling for FEM purposes.The solution integrates SmartMarine 3D with CAFE system and enables SmartMarine3D to exploit CAFE’s mesh generation capabilities.The PDF version of the abstract can be downloaded here.
