4 core applications where CFD is changing the HVAC & Construction industry

Over recent years we have seen significant growth in infrastructure and construction across our major capital cities in Australia and New Zealand, and in turn there has been an increase in the use of CFD and other CAE simulation to help get building designs right the first time, before any concrete is poured. This is true across both the large multidisciplinary consulting firms, as well as a growing band of niche consultancies who often specialise in particular areas (such as sustainability linked with indoor thermal comfort, or car park design to meet increasingly stringent regulations). As a result, here at LEAP Australia we’ve also observed a growing number of graduate engineers now seeking a career in HVAC simulation, as well as enquiries from experienced simulation...

How can CFD help us better understand the physics of reverse-swing bowling?

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.

Predicting Liner Wear in a SAG Mill using Rocky DEM coupled with ANSYS CFD

LEAP will be in Melbourne at the 2nd Int'l Symposium on Computational Particle Technology to showcase exciting new modelling work that has been completed recently using Rocky DEM and ANSYS CFD to predict liner wear in a semi-autonomous grinding (SAG) mill, using ANSYS CFD to model the effects of slurry flow within the mill on liner wear and particle breakage.

Guest Blog: LEAP & ANSYS help Horizon on journey to be crowned 2018 F1 In Schools World Champions

Horizon racing against BWT Stream from Austria in the record setting race

We are Horizon, Australia's lead F1 in Schools team from Brighton Secondary School in South Australia. After years of hard work and dedication, as well as the generous support of our sponsors such as LEAP Australia, we are very proud to have been crowned the 2018 F1 In Schools World Champions. Here is a recollection of our team’s journey using ANSYS CFD to refine our car design for the World Finals in Singapore in September 2018. Each year the F1 In Schools World Finals is the world's largest STEM competition and is the culmination of years of work from the top 50 teams from over 30 countries around the world, representing over 20 million students globally. In F1 In Schools, teams of 3-6 students create...

From tunnel ventilation to thermal comfort on your daily commute: CFD applications in the Rail industry

As you become more immersed in the world of CFD/simulations, you also begin looking around you and identifying more aspects of your everyday life impacted by engineering simulation. Learn how work by engineers in the Rail industry now means your daily commute contains many good examples of how CFD has improved both your comfort and safety.

2017 World Solar Challenge: proudly supporting student teams on their adventure of a lifetime

The world’s best solar car teams are driving into Adelaide today, 4-5 days after they started their journey in Darwin, and 2+ years after commencing their initial planning and engineering design following the 2015 competition. Congratulations to all the teams - read more about the simulation work done by committed student teams in the lead-up to this pioneering race.

Shape Optimisation with the Adjoint solver, Part 2: Useful new features

In our 2nd part of a series on the Adjoint solver, learn how recent developments have focused solely on improving the usefulness of the Adjoint solver for real-world customer problems - allowing for definition of multiple objectives; expanding to include more physics; and allowing more user control over geometry modifications and constraints.
