CFD keeps Emirates Team New Zealand on course to reclaim the America's Cup

LEAP staff, in particular our team of CFD engineers, have been watching with interest as the 2013 America's Cup unfolds in San Francisco. Despite being the oldest active trophy in international sport, the America's Cup is continually evolving thanks to an often dramatic combination of ...

5 key areas where ANSYS Multiphysics will help overcome the engineering challenges of Elon Musk's Hyperloop

This week marked the public release of Elon Musk's much anticipated proposal for a new mode of high-speed transport to be built between LA and San Francisco, dubbed the Hyperloop.  The concept is equally compelling for other busy air routes of between 500-1000 km, such as Sydney to Melbourne (which is the 3rd busiest air route globally, according to Wikipedia).  For engineers, the Hyperloop is an exciting concept which promises to provide an alternative to high-speed rail that is both faster, cheaper and more energy efficient, but the reality is that numerous engineering challenges need to be overcome to deliver this project on-time and on-budget with an acceptable level of safety (in one of the most seismically-active regions on earth!). ANSYS Multiphysics software is uniquely placed to help the eventual collaboration...

Insights from Sir James Dyson on accelerating product development through CFD with design exploration

Sir James Dyson was in Australia recently for the launch of Dyson's Airblade Tap hand dryer. During his visit, he gave a particularly enlightening interview with the ABC One-Plus-One program (which can be viewed at this link).   Dyson is a world-leader in the field of industrial design and is most famous for his invention of the cyclonic vaccuum cleaner (which now seems to have been copied and/or reverse engineered by all of his major competitors!).  I'd suggest that the battles that Dyson has had on the Intellectual Property front are undoubtedly a factor that requires Dyson to keep ahead of the competition through constant innovation.   During the interview, Dyson offered an interesting perspective on the need for perserverance in product design as he reflected on the product development process undertaken...

Join LEAP at the 2013 Australian International Airshow

We know that many of our CFD customers are also very passionate about aerodynamics and aircraft design, so it stands to reason that the 2013 Australian International Airshow will be a magnet for both aircraft enthusiasts and CFD practitioners alike.  The Australian International Airshow starts today (Feb 26th 2013) and LEAP Australia staff will be attending as part of the Victorian Government Stand, which is located in Hall 2, Stand 2F17.     If you are also attending the Airshow during the trade sessions this week (Tuesday to Friday), please drop us a line and we'd relish the opportunity to arrange a meeting and discuss your current CFD projects.   Once reliant on physical testing for research and development, the aerospace and defence industry pioneered computational methods to gain insight...

Learn from the Expert: Training in Multiphase Flow Modelling with Dr. Markus Braun, ANSYS Inc.

LEAP Australia is pleased to announce a visit to Australia by Dr Markus Braun, Team Leader, Multiphase Development, ANSYS Inc.  Dr. Braun will be presenting a two-day course in Melbourne on Multiphase Flow Modelling, in conjunction with his visit to the 2012 CSIRO Conference on CFD in the Minerals and Process Industries.   The training will be held in Melbourne on December 13-14, 2012.   Who should attend? This course is a rare opportunity for all engineers & managers who are working with CFD simulations involving multiphase flow, in an industrial or research environment. The course will comprise a mixture of lectures and example case studies which will allow attendees to gain a first hand knowledge of all multiphase modelling approaches available in ANSYS CFD and their application to various...

Top Australian Design Award goes to Deepsea Challenger submersible

LEAP Australia wishes to congratulate Finite Elements Pty Ltd on their impressive use of ANSYS simulation technology during the design and testing of James Cameron's Deepsea Challenge submersible vehicle, which successfully completed its historic expedition to the Mariana Trench’s lowest point, the Challenger Deep, on March 25, 2012.   The Deepsea Challenger submersible became the first single occupant research vessel to safely reach the bottom of the Mariana Trench, which at 11kms below the surface is the deepest part of the world's oceans.  The Deepsea Challenger was constructed in a factory in Sydney, and the design involved a 6 year collaboration between James Cameron, Ron Allum and Phil Durbin with his team at Finite Elements Pty Ltd.   Following his safe return to the surface, James Cameron commented "When...

Influence of CFD Technology on London Olympic Games

Many of you may already have detailed knowledge of the use of CFD in your area of expertise, but it is not often that as a CFD community we can all unite in appreciation of a common group of applications that we can all relate to.  With the London 2012 Olympic Games fast approaching, we felt it is worth taking a look at the way in which CFD technology is playing a crucial role in many Olympic sports. You may have already been aware of the tremendous work that companies such as Speedo had invested in CFD technology to keep their products a step above their competitors.  In fact, so successful were the Speedo LZR RACER swimsuits developed for the Athens and Beijing Olympics that they were eventually...

Learn from the Expert: Turbulence Training with Dr. Florian Menter

Dr. Menter is a world-recognised expert in turbulence modelling.

He developed the widely used Shear-Stress Transport (SST) turbulence model, which has set a milestone in the accurate prediction of aerodynamic flows. He has also contributed to the formulation of one-equation turbulence models, advanced near wall treatment of turbulence equations, transition modelling and unsteady flow models. He has been in charge of the turbulence modelling program at ANSYS for more than 15 years and has been involved in a wide range of industrial modelling challenges.
