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.

Using CFD to enhance your mixing process and drive down costs

Mixing processes are critical to a wide range of industrial applications across the the paint, food, pharmaceutical, minerals and water treatment industries. CFD is becoming fundamental to the successful operation of mixing processes including clarification, cell culture growth, fermentation, polymerization and blending.

Monash Motorsport take out "Best Use of Virtual Methods to Achieve Vehicle Targets" award at Silverstone

We are pleased to announce that long term partners of LEAP Australia, Monash Motorsport, have achieved a very respectable fifth place overall in the 2014 Formula Student Competition at Silverstone in the UK.   Among the awards presented at the competition was one for the best use of virtual methods to achieve vehicle targets which was won...

Tips & Tricks: Calculating the Mean Age of Air for HVAC simulations in ANSYS CFD

Engineers who are tasked with designing heating, ventilation and air-conditioning (HVAC) systems for buildings will need to assess the indoor air quality to ensure optimum health and comfort for occupants and meet minimum regulatory requirements.  Generally a HVAC CFD analysis will take into account variables such as air temperature, relative humidity, air species concentrations and velocity.  Additionally,...

Guest Post: ANSYS CFD helps Sunswift tackle the World Solar Challenge

Issue 1 of ANSYS Advantage magazine places the spotlight on the academic use of CFD and other ANSYS software.  Part of this issue is dedicated to student engineering competitions where students have the chance to use real-world engineering methods and tools such as CFD to design cutting-edge products, including race cars (FSAE) and solar passenger vehicles...

Solving Conjugate Heat Transfer problems

  For many simulations of real world engineering applications, the predictions of heat transfer properties are as important, if not more important, than the actual flow field. Such scenarios include simulations of heat exchangers, HVAC (Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning), combustion/burners, electronics cooling, and many more. In these applications, we are often interested in how heat...
