Guest Blog by Wood Australia. Edward Yap, CFD Consultant and Deepak Jagannatha, Lead CFD Consultant, recently presented this in-depth look at their analysis of a Subsea Christmas Tree, commonly used in the Oil and Gas industry, as part of LEAP’s Ansys CFD Virtual User Group meeting.
Learn how recent developments in Ansys provide a new “optical CFD” workflow to help more accurately simulate the complex interactions between the flowfield and electromagnetic fields in the Electro-Optics / Infra-Red (EO/IR) range. This helps engineers to improve their simulations of flow field phenomena around fast-moving vehicles and improve the performance of EOIR sensor signals for tracking hypersonic vehicles.
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.
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.
The timing is right for the concept of Digital Twin to be embraced by Australian industry and defence. Learn how it has been made possible by the convergence of multiple trends, encompassing IoT data, big data analytics and ongoing advances in engineering software.
This week marked the public release of Elon Musk's much anticipated proposal for a new mode of high-speed transport to be built between LA and San Francisco, dubbed the Hyperloop. The concept is equally compelling for other busy air routes of between 500-1000 km, such as Sydney to Melbourne (which is the 3rd busiest air route globally, according...
