IoT sensors identify your product is operating ‘out of spec’. What next? Some lessons from the Avalon Airshow

The timing is right for the concept of Digital Twin to be embraced by Australian industry and defence. Learn how it has been made possible by the convergence of multiple trends, encompassing IoT data, big data analytics and ongoing advances in engineering software.

Going with the Flow

The water industry has a range of engineering challenges and specific regulatory requirements, especially concerning flow assurance, water quality, and even component selection. Learn how CFD delivers real value to the water industry - such as predicting complex flow behavior, across individual components or large network systems.

Tips on modelling non-Newtonian fluid viscosity

Many fluids we encounter in industry do not strain linearly with respect to viscous shear and are thus considered non-Newtonian. This post explores how to model non-Newtonian viscosity of fluids in ANSYS CFD, using blood as an example.

Recent advances in Multiphase Flow Modelling

What's changed in the world of multiphase flow modelling in the past 2-3 years? As always, an understanding of the physics of the system that you are modelling remains the number one priority, however, a number of new developments will help you address a wider range of multiphase flows and in a faster and more effective way.

Using CFD to stop overheating of electronics and electrical equipment

Simulation technology allows us to accurately predict the thermal performance of electronics/electrical equipment during early design stages, giving engineers the confidence that thermal failures in the field (and the adverse warranty issues they may bring) can be considered a thing of the past.

Exciting advances in Wind Engineering using ANSYS CFD

Wind engineering requires engineers to consider how a building responds to its environment as well as the effect that the structure will have on the space around it. Learn more about the use of CFD in wind engineering...

Using CFD to predict flow-generated noise and other aeroacoustic effects

Flow-generated noise can have significantly adverse effects on our everyday lives. Product designers and engineers at the world’s most innovative and successful companies have recognised this fact, and are increasingly using CFD to incorporate noise mitigation strategies into their product design process.
