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.
Monash Motorsport has been designing Formula Student cars with wings and diffusers for many years, but this process has been fast-tracked through greater automation of Ansys CFD simulations to help the team gather more simulation data points & generate a comprehensive aero map to analyse the impact of changes in vehicle roll, yaw, steer and ride height.
Ensuring adequate ventilation is a critical challenge when designing rail tunnels. How can CFD be used to accurately size the ventilation fans while accounting for the movement of trains through tunnels at high speeds?
Is your company developing a Digital Twin strategy? LEAP’s engineers have created working examples of a Simulation-based Digital Twin in action - a real-time, virtual replica of your equipment constantly updated through IoT data that provides you with:
- insight into real-time performance using extra Virtual Sensor outputs
- data to assess machine health & identify possible failure conditions
- actionable data to enable predictive maintenance & avoid costly downtime.
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.
LEAP will be in Melbourne at the 2nd Int'l Symposium on Computational Particle Technology to showcase exciting new modelling work that has been completed recently using Rocky DEM and ANSYS CFD to predict liner wear in a semi-autonomous grinding (SAG) mill, using ANSYS CFD to model the effects of slurry flow within the mill on liner wear and particle breakage.
In a guest post, Adra Group explains how ANSYS CFD was used to assist Hydro Australia to identify and resolve non-uniform flow issues (into vertical canister pumps) which was causing severe noise and vibration issues and high operating costs.
LEAP and ANSYS congratulates Emirates Team New Zealand for their remarkable victory in the 2017 America’s Cup. More info on some of the unheralded innovations and ingenuity behind this engineering and sporting triumph.
