SesamX can read multiple mesh format on input. For instance SesamX can read Abaqus mesh. However the classical approach is to use the Salome software to mesh your geometries.
Salome is an open source simulation-oriented platform. It enables efficient pre and post-processing. Salome proposes many features to create finite element mesh:
SesamX reads perfectly the Salome mesh format (.med file). Once the mesh is constructed and the groups are definied, you can proceed with SesamX to finalize your model definition.
With the SesamX solver you can simulate the structural behavior of your product. From mesh and groups definition, you can complete your model right into SesamX:
Next you can run the simulation using multiple options:
SesamX rethinks the whole model definition and simulation process:
SesamX takes performance and precision seriously:
SesamX is rigorously validated:
As for meshing, SesamX relies also on the Salome platform to analyze the results of your simulation.
A custom interface, the SesamX Viewer, has been developed to ease SesamX finite element results analysis. Many features are available:
