Many fluids we encounter in industry do not strain linearly with respect to viscous shear and are thus considered non-Newtonian. This post explores how to model non-Newtonian viscosity of fluids in ANSYS CFD, using blood as an example.
ANSYS Polyflow is designed to simulate blow moulding and extrusion processes, as well as mixing of complex rheology liquids, film casting, extruder screw simulation, gravity assisted gob forming, glass pressing and mould filling. Many companies deliver a fast ROI of within 1 year using Polyflow for polymer processing simulations.
What's changed in the world of multiphase flow modelling in the past 2-3 years? As always, an understanding of the physics of the system that you are modelling remains the number one priority, however, a number of new developments will help you address a wider range of multiphase flows and in a faster and more effective way.
Flow-generated noise can have significantly adverse effects on our everyday lives. Product designers and engineers at the world’s most innovative and successful companies have recognised this fact, and are increasingly using CFD to incorporate noise mitigation strategies into their product design process.
With gas prices predicted to skyrocket in the next few years, an opportunity exists for engineers and designers of gas-fired appliances at smart manufacturers to use CFD to gain an edge in the competitive Australian market.
Mixing processes are critical to a wide range of industrial applications across the the paint, food, pharmaceutical, minerals and water treatment industries. CFD is becoming fundamental to the successful operation of mixing processes including clarification, cell culture growth, fermentation, polymerization and blending.
