How to Improve Pump Efficiency through CFD Simulations

Advancing our understanding of the fluid dynamics within a pump is of prime importance in improving pump efficiency and thus helping engineers to reducing the losses incurred during pump operation. Ansys has a robust end-to-end workflow to help designers in creating pumps from scratch. One example of how such a workflow helps improve pump efficiencies can be found here. However, clients sometimes need to investigate ways to improve an existing pump’s design without needing to go back to the pump’s designer for their CAD drawings. This blog showcases how Ansys CFD software can help design a custom workflow to meet the client’s need for investigating the flow physics in a pump, starting from a scanned model of the geometry. Simulation Objective: In this case, the...

Guest Blog by MMS: Aero Mapping for Formula-SAE using CFD

Monash Motorsport has been designing Formula Student cars with wings and diffusers for many years, but this process has been fast-tracked through greater automation of Ansys CFD simulations to help the team gather more simulation data points & generate a comprehensive aero map to analyse the impact of changes in vehicle roll, yaw, steer and ride height.

Supercharge your Geometry Model Preparation with Ansys SpaceClaim Scripting

Ansys SpaceClaim has long been the preferred tool for engineers to prepare CAD for simulation. With the release of Ansys 2020 R2, new advances have made SpaceClaim even easier and more powerful than ever before, particularly in bi-directional CAD transfer, block recording & scripting capabilities. LEAP recently ran a webinar to demonstrate how SpaceClaim allows Ansys users to perform advanced, fully automatic manipulation of simulation models directly from the original CAD source. This presentation has been summarised and is available to watch on demand below. Overview of SpaceClaim core capabilities This section provides an overview of why SpaceClaim has been the best tool to prepare industrial CAD for simulation for a number of years. Time-saving features that simulation engineers need are easily located in the...

Rocky DEM Materials Calibration

Rocky DEM is a high fidelity particle simulation program that quickly and accurately simulates particle behaviour within bulk materials handling systems used across a variety of industries including mining and minerals processing, food and beverage, pharmaceutical, agricultural and any industry dealing with particulate systems or solids handling applications. Some keys features include: an extensive library of realistic particle shapes, an intuitive and easy-to-use interface, superior scalability with CPU, GPU and multi-GPU processing, advanced breakage and flexible particle models, evaluation of belt and surface wear, integration with ANSYS FEA and CFD, complex moving and vibrating boundaries and more. Figure 1: Advanced Unique Capabilities of ROCKY DEM In this article, we will focus on materials calibration which is a process commonly adopted in DEM to fine-tune material...

Launch of LEAP Learning Hub

LEAP Australia is committed to the growth of CAE software and simulation tools within the engineering and design community across Australia and New Zealand.  Support and training of our customers and students form a vital part of this commitment. The success seen with our LEAP Academic Portal inspired us to build a new platform for all users in Australia and New Zealand and we are now excited to launch the new LEAP Learning Hub.   The LEAP Learning Hub has a new interface offering a smoother workflow for users to find Ansys training materials for our primary simulation physics: structural, fluids, electromagnetics and electronics.   With every new Ansys release, it is easier and faster for users to set up detailed physics-based simulations. Still, it remains crucial for engineers to have a firm grasp of the underlying physics and to follow established best practices to achieve reliable and accurate simulation results. We hope the Learning Hub will assist you in this journey.   How does it work?  To...
