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.
This blog series focuses on a common question: What y+ should I use in my simulations? This is the final part (Part 3) in the series – Understanding impact of Y+ and number of prism layers on flow resolution in our CFD simulations
This blog series focuses on a common question: What y+ should I use in my simulations? This is Part 2 in the series – Resolving each region of the boundary layer.
This blog series focuses on a common question: What y+ should I use in my CFD simulations? This first post is designed to help you understand the physics of boundary layers in relation to CFD meshes and Y+ values.
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).
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...
On a stormy night in August 1981, a Cessna Centurion 210 aircraft crashed with 5 people on board in Barrington Tops, a rugged and isolated national park north of Newcastle, New South Wales. Despite a massive initial search effort and ongoing attempts by a group of dedicated volunteers, the challenging and complex terrain has conspired...
