Automatic Vs Manual Meshing: Which One is Right for You?

There’s always a debate on choosing the right meshing technique for FEA and CFD simulations. Since meshing is an important part in any simulation process, it is imperative to ensure that a proper meshing technique is adopted. This is essentially a concern for most analysts as the simulation results hugely rely on mesh quality.

It is quite easy to…

Mechanism of Truck Scales

Truck weighing scales are quite widespread in their use. A primary driving force behind it is ensuring vehicle and driver safety. Trucks, on exceeding their maximum safe weight limits (defined often under regulations on the same), become prone to accidents like overturns. Overweight trucks are also a problem for the road surfaces on which the trucks travel, since it accelerates their wear and tear. Another critical aspect is regional taxation and toll policies. These are often guided by the…
