Guest Blog by Wood Australia. Edward Yap, CFD Consultant and Deepak Jagannatha, Lead CFD Consultant, recently presented this in-depth look at their analysis of a Subsea Christmas Tree, commonly used in the Oil and Gas industry, as part of LEAP’s Ansys CFD Virtual User Group meeting.
David Fletcher from LEAP discusses the importance of the 3rd Turbulence Best Practices guide recently released by Florian Menter and his team at Ansys.
This latest BPG documents the key best practices in RANS turbulence modelling, with comprehensive coverage of all widely-used 1-equation, 2-equation and Reynolds stress models.
Prof. David Fletcher guides us through the key new features of interest in Ansys 2021 R2 for CFD, including some important new usability enhancements. This blog contains a series of short summaries with content tailored to particular physics / applications / topics of interest.
Learn how simulation plays a vital role in the design phase for many infrastructure projects such as tunnels, with the ability to test various design configurations and verify performance virtually, without build-and-test methodology, providing cost savings and faster project delivery.
Ansys 2021 R1 brings a multitude of new advances and usability enhancements. - here we provide a series of short highlight summaries with content tailored to particular physics / applications / topics of interest.
How can CAE users make the most of the new scripting capabilities available in SpaceClaim 2020R2 to help efficiently automate the generation of new geometry designs? We look at how to create design templates that can automatically generate different designs, simply by modifying a few key parameters.
In order to improve pump efficiency, pump designers require fine-grain insights into complex fluid dynamics within a pump to help them identify areas that can be refined to reduce losses during pump operation. In this example, we look at the workflow to improve an existing pump’s design without requiring the original CAD drawings – instead using scanned data of an existing pump design.
For the times when your CFD simulation is diverging or not behaving as expected, we offer a helpful checklist to systematically troubleshoot what is going wrong and successfully tackle the most challenging CFD problems.
