Print version Email story Tweet story
Announcements ANSYS is hosting a series of CFD Meshing webinars this summer. Part Two of the series will be held on July 24th.

This series of Ask The Expert on CFD Preprocessing is intended to help users in better understanding and implementing efficient meshing strategies and parametric modeling.

Accuracy of simulations to a large extent depends on type of mesh and mesh quality. Preprocessing can form major part of the man hours in simulation, if best practices and meshing strategy to generate quick and high quality mesh are not followed.

The sessions will predominantly have demonstrations. In the series, meshing workflows, meshing strategies for applications and productivity improvement tips will be demonstrated through several case studies. In addition, the advantages & usage of usability features which improves user’s efficiency and speed will be discussed. The selected case studies include key applications from oil & gas/process/automotive and turbo industries.

After the presentation, a panel of experts from ANSYS will answer questions live via WebEx.

Part 1: How to create Gambit like Hex/Hybrid Meshes in ANSYS Mesher and use parametric modeling in ANSYS WB to replace Gambit Scripts?

Part 2: Demonstration of Meshing of dirty & complex models like Combustor and IC Engine head in Fluent Meshing.

Aero and Auto industry meshing needs are more focused on Rapid mesh turnaround time and clean up. One of the main challenge in Aero industry is to generate combustor mesh with reduced manual intervention, which can take few days to mesh a combustor. With Fluent Meshing in ANSYS 14.5, this process is very simplified and streamlined to generate the combustor fluid mesh within a day. In the Automotive industry, complex geometry requires automated tools which can clean up the geometry and generate high quality mesh. We will demonstrate how Fluent Meshing can be a handy tool for meshing several automotive geometries.

Session contents:

  • Advantages of TGrid embedded under Fluent (Fluent Meshing) for increase in productivity
  • To understand how to use TGrid for combustor meshing under Fluent environment
  • Demo of key steps in meshing an automotive component

Part 3: Demonstration of Hybrid Meshing of intricate models like electric motor, drill bit in Ansys Mesher.

Part 4: How ICEMCFD Integration in WB can help in creating parametric models, defining workflows and automating meshing processes?

Join us for this free one-hour webinar and see how our users are benefiting from the insight that computer simulation offers.
