In cricket, reverse swing bowling is much talked-about but often misunderstood. Conditions in the much anticipated 2019 Ashes cricket series between Australia and England are expected to be conducive to reverse-swing bowling. Let's use some CFD examples to help better understand the science of reverse-swing bowling.
Leading to 2019 National Finals, hear some insights from Hoai Nguyen, Design Engineer from the Golden Diversity F1 in Schools team from Queechy High School - Hoai was closely involved in using CFD simulations and Augmented Reality for their car and display for the 2017 World Finals.
RMIT Racing explains how both their combustion and electric F-SAE teams have decided to employ the use of Augmented Reality (AR) with technical support from LEAP for their 2018 campaigns, including an impressive visualisation of the aerodynamics of the R17c vehicle.
In a guest post, Adra Group explains how ANSYS CFD was used to assist Hydro Australia to identify and resolve non-uniform flow issues (into vertical canister pumps) which was causing severe noise and vibration issues and high operating costs.
LEAP and ANSYS congratulates Emirates Team New Zealand for their remarkable victory in the 2017 America’s Cup. More info on some of the unheralded innovations and ingenuity behind this engineering and sporting triumph.
A discussion around the business benefits of a separate “PrepPost” & “Solver” licence configuration which provides greater flexibility and allows each organisation to tailor the number of licences to their team’s needs: providing the optimal blend of user productivity and solver throughput.
Learn about Augmented Reality (AR) technology that was showcased at 2017 National Manufacturing Week / Austech: including the ability to augment pressure contours on the front and rear wings of the MMS racecar, as well as visualise the animated flow streamlines being released forward of the front wing. Students from MMS are using these AR CFD results to collaborate more effectively in a multi-disciplinary team environment where not everyone is a CFD expert and hopefully achieve their ultimate goals of maximising downforce on the front/rear wings and optimising the aerodynamic performance of their racecar.
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.
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.
