Solid modeling as the core communication corner stone for animations
by Choudhury, Panchali, M.S., California State University, Long Beach, 2009, 131; 1472285
Abstract (Summary)

This thesis aims to explore the role of solid modeling in light of integrated CAD softwares that enable the user to model and simulate using a single interface. It analyzes and compares two different softwares, namely Integrated Design and Engineering Analysis Software or better known as I-DEAS 12 and NX 5 and their different modules like Finite Element Method, Thermal Analysis, and fluid flow. The thesis further explores the requirements placed on solid modeling for successful animation using these softwares. Finally the research aims to apply these techniques to a real-life example involving aerospace structures thus concluding that solid modeling plays a fundamental role in obtaining an accurate animated result.
