Insights from Sir James Dyson on accelerating product development through CFD with design exploration

Sir James Dyson was in Australia recently for the launch of Dyson's Airblade Tap hand dryer. During his visit, he gave a particularly enlightening interview with the ABC One-Plus-One program (which can be viewed at this link).   Dyson is a world-leader in the field of industrial design and is most famous for his invention of the cyclonic...

Tips & Tricks: How to interpret results for multiphase & porous domains using true velocity and superficial velocity

A commonly asked question is: What is Superficial Velocity and when do I use it?   If a fluid flows through a region that is occupied by either fixed structures (a porous region, pipe rack, catalyst bed, etc...), or shares the channel with other fluids (e.g. gas-liquid flow), there are two ways to describe the fluid...

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...

Learn from the Expert: Turbulence Training with Dr. Florian Menter

Dr. Menter is a world-recognised expert in turbulence modelling.

He developed the widely used Shear-Stress Transport (SST) turbulence model, which has set a milestone in the accurate prediction of aerodynamic flows. He has also contributed to the formulation of one-equation turbulence models, advanced near wall treatment of turbulence equations, transition modelling and unsteady flow models. He has been in charge of the turbulence modelling program at ANSYS for more than 15 years and has been involved in a wide range of industrial modelling challenges.
