Q&A with Wendy Walls whose research and teaching aims to deliver innovative design methodologies for urban open spaces, designed in response to a changing climate. Learn how Wendy's use of Ansys Discovery has provided an engaging way to teach landscape design students the critical concepts involving airflow and heat transfer in urban design.
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.
Guest blog by Team Hydron - read how Australia's leading F1 in Schools team used Ansys and KeyShot software suites to elevate their engineering & design process and develop a vehicle that would win the Best Engineered and Fastest Car awards at the 2022 World Finals.
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 by ECU-Racing on how the team uses CFD simulation to drive aerodynamic design improvements, explaining how CFD simulation results provide help identify problematic aspects such as flow separation, undesirable flow structures, and poor use of flow energy which can then lead to new ideas which can be tested in CFD to improve the overall flow around the car.
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.
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.
Guest Blog by USYD Rocketry Team (URT) who use simulation in their development of high-power sounding rockets to compete in the Australian Universities Rocketry Competition (AURC) and Spaceport America Cup. URT was the first Australian team to compete and took first place in the 10,000 ft COTS category with their Silvereye rocket.
Leading to 2019 National Finals, hear some insights from Hoai Nguyen, Design Engineer from the Golden Diversity F1 in Schools team from Queechy High School - Hoai was closely involved in using CFD simulations and Augmented Reality for their car and display for the 2017 World Finals.
We are Horizon, Australia's lead F1 in Schools team from Brighton Secondary School in South Australia. After years of hard work and dedication, as well as the generous support of our sponsors such as LEAP Australia, we are very proud to have been crowned the 2018 F1 In Schools World Champions. Here is a recollection...
