When dealing with a significant number of variables in our simulations, design engineers often find it challenging to work out which variables are the most important, and how to best tune these variables to improve performance. Learn how ANSYS optiSLang now offers a compelling proposition for answering these questions while giving engineers even more tools for exploring the possible performance envelope within key design parameters.
Engineers are continually under pressure to improve the performance of their products and often look to gain an edge using optimisation techniques - trying to reduce drag, increase lift (or downforce), or reduce pressure drop. Rather than relying on intuition to make geometry changes that are often constrained (using a parametric CAD approach), you can now use the new Adjoint solver to compute localised sensitivity data (related to your objectives) and optimize your design semi-automatically.
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.
Caravan owners are well aware that the speed they drive at and the shape of their caravan can greatly affect fuel consumption.
In partnership with Caravan World magazine, we've taken a closer look into the performance of caravans with the aid of CFD, including some less obvious factors that can help shave off the drag on your caravan and improve fuel consumption.
Companies in the food & beverage industries looking to grow their business are implementing new technologies, such as simulation, to enable their engineers to develop new products and implement process innovations necessary to provide efficiencies of scale. Here are 7 ways that food & beverage manufacturers can harness cutting-edge simulation technology.
