Our curated highlights from a recent SCONA event (SCONA is the Society for Computational fluid dynamics Of the Nose and Airway) that illustrate the power of using CFD for applications relevant to our understanding of the nose and airway. SCONA 2023 was held recently in Brisbane, Australia.
Read how the advanced multiphase capabilities of Ansys Fluent (combining hydrodynamics with mass transfer and chemical reaction) are being used to model 3D bioreactors and used as inputs to validate simpler 1D models suitable for process design and optimisation using simpler, computationally faster models.
Multiphase flows form the basis of many important processes in the mineral processing, metal production, energy and chemical process industries. This guest blog from CSIRO describes how CFD modelling can be used to better understand these industrial processes, improve performance and develop new novel processes. Examples given include gas-liquid, gas-solid and gas-liquid-solid flows.
Highlights from a recent webinar by LEAP’s expert simulation team covering the most significant updates in Ansys for educators and academic researchers in ANZ - with a focus on Fluids, Structures and Electromagnetics across the last 2-3 years.
Guest Blog highlighting the use of CFD on a real-world burner optimisation project that allowed FCT’s client to increase their use of alternative fuels while solving an issue of costly shutdowns due to kiln build-up. CFD also enabled implementation of a new burner design that improves clinker quality and production.
Learn how Rocky 2022R1 now offers an integrated Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics (SPH) method to help simulate the interaction of solid particles with fluids with high viscosity, high deformation and/or complex free surfaces.
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.
