Student teams are ground zero for next-generation of simulation engineers

As we post this blog, hundreds of students are gathering at Winton Motor Raceway, north-east Victoria, for the 2019 Formula-SAE Australasian competition, taking place from Dec 5-8.  More than 30 student teams from all around Australia and New Zealand, plus international teams from as far as India & Japan will be showcasing their student designed and built open-wheeled racing cars in a competition that assesses both the technical performance as well as business/communications attributes of each team. Now in it’s 20th year, the competition is run by the Society of Automotive Engineers – Australasia (SAE-A), the Asia Pacific professional body for automotive and mobility engineers. As well as the excitement of the competition, what motivates students to participate in Formula SAE is most often the...

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.

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.
