(Part 2) 10 Useful Tips on selecting the most appropriate multiphase flow CFD models

As we discussed in our previous post, the first step when  tackling a multiphase CFD problem is to identify the key characteristics of your physical system.  Once you've done this (using our checklist if you are still new to multiphase CFD), you can begin to make informed decisions on what multiphase modelling approaches to use....

Webinar: Overview & Recent Advancements in Multiphase Flow Modelling with Dr. Markus Braun, ANSYS Inc

In advance of his visit to Australia in December, LEAP Australia is pleased to announce a webinar to be conducted by Dr. Markus Braun on Wednesday November 14th at 4pm AEDT (Syd/Mel daylight savings time).  This webinar will provide an overview of multiphase flow modelling techniques and discuss recent advancements that impact the use of...

10 questions to ask yourself when tackling your first (or a new) Multiphase CFD project

By virtue of the many physical processes we are often attempting to simulate in a virtual environment, CFD can be a complex beast.  To accurately account for all real-world behaviour, the CFD engineer must consider the applicability of a large number of physical effects, including complex turbulence, compressibility, various modes of heat transfer and, last...

Top Australian Design Award goes to Deepsea Challenger submersible

LEAP Australia wishes to congratulate Finite Elements Pty Ltd on their impressive use of ANSYS simulation technology during the design and testing of James Cameron's Deepsea Challenge submersible vehicle, which successfully completed its historic expedition to the Mariana Trench’s lowest point, the Challenger Deep, on March 25, 2012.   The Deepsea Challenger submersible became the first...

How the top Formula One (F1) teams stay on the podium

You may already know that Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) is currently used by all Formula One teams as part of their ongoing development for their aerodynamics and cooling packages. Since the technologies pioneered in F1 car development regularly flow through into other engineering industries, we felt that a post on this topic was the perfect...
