Companies in the food & beverage industries looking to grow their business are implementing new technologies, such as simulation, to enable their engineers to develop new products and implement process innovations necessary to provide efficiencies of scale. Here are 7 ways that food & beverage manufacturers can harness cutting-edge simulation technology.
The water industry has a range of engineering challenges and specific regulatory requirements, especially concerning flow assurance, water quality, and even component selection. Learn how CFD delivers real value to the water industry - such as predicting complex flow behavior, across individual components or large network systems.
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.
A How-To guide for Fluent Meshing's new Shrink Wrap tool which provides a powerful, easy-to-use solution for meshing complex STL geometries. This is a step-by-step guide on how to produce a high-quality CFD mesh for an abdominal aorta, imported in medium-resolution STL format (NIH).
We encounter pumps in our everyday life in all manner of applications, be it in our dishwasher or car; or indirectly in water supply, oil pipelines, cooling water pumps and many more applications. In fact, the very significant fraction of the world’s energy used for pumping may well surprise you - and therefore the potential...
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.
Wind engineering requires engineers to consider how a building responds to its environment as well as the effect that the structure will have on the space around it. Learn more about the use of CFD in wind engineering...
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.
Combustion technology underpins almost every facet of our modern life, from electricity generation to industrial heaters/furnaces through to automotive engines. Increasing social and economic pressure to minimise energy use and reduce pollution is driving the use of CFD to improve the efficiency of combustion processes.
