Siemens Gamesa Uses ML Digital Twin for Wind Farm Optimization
Posted Thu March 24, 2022 @09:52AM
Print version Email story Tweet story
Application Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy is working with NVIDIA to create physics-informed digital twins of wind farms — groups of wind turbines used to produce electricity.

The company has thousands of turbines around the globe that light up schools, homes, hospitals and factories with clean energy. In total they generate over 100 gigawatts of wind power, enough to power nearly 87 million households annually.

Researchers Produce Detailed Simulation of Heart Valve Flow
Posted Thu February 10, 2022 @08:46PM
Print version Email story Tweet story
Application Researchers at Rice University in the US and Waseda University in Japan have collaborated to simulate flow through a working ventricle-valve-aorta geometry.

In this research, Tayfun Tezduyar, Prof. Mechanical Engineering at Rice University, and his colleagues at Waseda University in Japan tackled what he said is one of the toughest problems in biomechanics: a way to accurately characterize the flow of blood around and through the heart’s valves, taking into account the flow details near the surfaces of the valve’s three leaflets along the way.

Application A new simulation showing the impact of the heat and humidity in the Tokyo Stadium has highlighted the dangerous conditions facing athletes, risking heatstroke, dehydration and exhaustion, at the hottest Games on record.

Engineers at Hexagon's Manufacturing Intelligence division, whose simulation software is used by manufacturers such as Airbus, Toyota, and Samsung, simulated the effects of the hot, humid conditions on a male athlete competing in the 10,000m race (the longest stadium-based track race). Despite the race taking place after sunset, the simulations show athletes still face gruelling conditions.

Determining the Coefficient of Hydrodynamic Torque Using CFD
Posted Thu June 03, 2021 @02:42PM
Print version Email story Tweet story
Application In quarter-turn valves, torque is the turning effort required to rotate the valve’s closure member or hold it in position. Knowing the valve torque is essential in actuator sizing.

The simulationHub team has written an article on this topic in the recently published Valve World magazine.

CFD Analysis Solves Mystery of Baseball Pitch Trajectory
Posted Fri March 26, 2021 @02:28PM
Print version Email story Tweet story
Application In professional baseball and major league baseball, pitchers often use a breaking ball called a forkball or split as a decisive pitch. These balls are known to be difficult to hit because the batter feels as if the ball is falling rapidly at the plate.

A team led by Professor Takayuki Aoki of Tokyo Institute of Technology (Titech) has conducted research using the supercomputer TSUBAME3.0 at the Global Scientific Information and Computing Center, and performed a numerical fluid dynamics simulation of a baseball flying at high speed while rotating, calculating the seams in detail.
