Guest blog by ECU-Racing on how the team uses CFD simulation to drive aerodynamic design improvements, explaining how CFD simulation results provide help identify problematic aspects such as flow separation, undesirable flow structures, and poor use of flow energy which can then lead to new ideas which can be tested in CFD to improve the overall flow around the car.
Read about Monash High-Powered Rocketry's amazing achievement to win second place in its category at the 2021 Virtual Spaceport America Cup - including an acknowledgement of their quality simulation work, with first place in the Charles Hoult Award for Modelling and Simulation.
Q&A with Douglas Weber-Steinhaus from Ansys to learn about his experiences working with ETNZ in Auckland in the leadup to the 2021 America's Cup (which starts next week!)
Ansys CFD tools in 2021 have taken another large step forward with the availability of a new product, named “Ansys CFD-Pro” - which provides our customers with the right tools to tackle a range of common CFD applications at a significantly more affordable price than the full Ansys CFD Premium package, but still using the same modern Fluent workflow, meshing technology, and core Fluent solver that has been trusted by our customers worldwide for many decades.
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.
We speak with Khesh Selvaganapathi, Graduate Application Engineer at LEAP who recently graduated as a Mechanical Engineer from Monash University & joined LEAP at the start of March 2020 - just a few weeks before the COVID-19 pandemic began causing widespread disruption and forced most LEAP staff to work from home...
In these unprecedented times with many working from home due to the global COVID-19 pandemic, our team at LEAP Australia has put together some tips to help you continue using Ansys CFD software while working remotely.
Highlights from the official launch of ETNZ's Boat 1 "Te Aihe" including insights from the sailors and CEO about the development of their AC75 class foiling monohull, along with early footage of their first foil during first day's sailing.
The world’s best solar car teams are driving into Adelaide today, 4-5 days after they started their journey in Darwin, and 2+ years after commencing their initial planning and engineering design following the 2015 competition. Congratulations to all the teams - read more about the simulation work done by committed student teams in the lead-up to this pioneering race.
