RayGen explains their vision to accelerate the global transition to renewable energy and how they are using CFD simulation to deliver innovative solar infrastructure projects such as their unique ‘PV Ultra’ concentrated PV technology that provides dispatchable electricity, heat, cooling and desalinated water, all day and night.
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!)
F1 in Schools Spotlight: Dark Matter Racing explain how they were able to use CFD to engineer Australia’s fastest F1 in Schools car (plus a host of other awards) at the 2020 National Finals, and look ahead to their next competition, the 2020(21) World Finals.
F1 in Schools Spotlight: After achieving great success at the 2020 Virtual Victorian State Finals where they placed first overall and were awarded 11 of 13 category awards including Best Engineered and the Innovation Award, Team Hydron describe the many hours of CFD testing and design conducted by their engineering team, supported by LEAP Australia and Ansys.
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.
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?
