Engineers running particle simulations now not only demand faster solution times but also want to increase the fidelity of their DEM simulations using millions more particles. Fortunately, advances in GPU capabilities have meant that Rocky DEM customers can take advantage dedicated GPU-based solvers - but what is the hardware sweet spot for different problem sizes? Here we review a comprehensive set of benchmarks completed by the Rocky DEM developers comparing solve times on CPUs vs GPUs.
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.
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.
A recent CFD study examines the relationship between nasal shape and the turbulence of airflow in the nose to help better understand olfaction and improve nasal drug delivery.
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.
