Events: Effectively Managing the CAE Process and Data Webcast

News Effectively Managing the CAE Process and Data

DATE: Thursday, May 11, 2005
TIME: 2:00 p.m. ET
DURATION: One Hour

Since as much as 75% of a typical product's lifecycle cost is determined during the initial design phase, the return on investment for upfront analysis should be the highest.

Unfortunately, many companies struggle to leverage their valuable design experience while protecting intellectual property, or work hard to develop sophisticated methods with Computer Aided Engineering (CAE) software but fall short of realizing their true potential to impact designs.

How do you capture and protect your companies design expertise, and apply it consistently design after design?

How can you make better use of powerful analysis software early in design when its impact is greatest?

Simulation Process and Data Management (SPDM) provides a systematic approach and infrastructure for managing the processes and data – both experimental and analytical – associated with CAE simulations and integrating these capabilities within existing Products Lifecycle Management (PLM) and Product Data Management (PDM) systems.

Enductive Solutions, a leader in this field, will provide an overview of this technology and show some examples of customized SPDM solutions.

Print version Email story Tweet story
News NIKA GmbH, the leading provider of fluid flow and heat transfer simulation software for engineers, announced that Siemens AG has signed a worldwide agreement for licensing its family of Engineering Fluid Dynamics (EFD) products. Under the terms of this agreement, all Siemens facilities will be able to acquire NIKA analysis products under preferred terms.

Siemens chose EFD.Lab and EFD.V5 for their accuracy, efficiency, ease-of-use and low cost of ownership. EFD.Lab is an industry leading fluid flow and heat transfer simulation program while EFD.V5 offers a seamless integration between Dassault Systèmes’ CATIA V5 and NIKA’s analysis technology.

Help Solving 3D Unsteady NS Eqns for Flapping Wing
Posted Mon April 25, 2005 @10:53PM

Help Desk quarkz writes "Hi,

My colleages and I (research students) are thinking of solving the unsteady incompressible 3D NS eqns codes to model flapping wings. Hence, the boundary will be moving. We've been looking thru many schemes and we need some opinons...

  1. Projection or fractional or artificial compress, SIMPLER which is more suitable? We're a bit confused.
  2. 2nd order crank Nicolson or backward Euler for time discretization?
  3. How to move the boundary? What we know is to rotate the whole grids, suggested by Liu & Kawachi. Is there a better solution?
  4. We'll be using structured grids. Is it better to write ourselves or get a ready program? Is it efficient to generate 2d grids and stacked them together?

Sorry for asking so many questions. Anyway, thanks in advance!"

ANSYS FLUENT Get to the core of your toughest manufacturing problems at this free Fluent event.

Cincinnati, OH: May 20
Chicago, IL: Oct 28
Seattle, WA: Nov 11

Engineering managers and engineers of every discipline are facing tough challenges today: manufacturing obstacles from design to delivery, broken processes, pressure to reduce costs, increased risk, productivity losses, demand to innovate - the list goes on and on. Many engineers are unaware that by studying the flow of gas, solids, and liquids, you can get to the root cause of problems in your operation. This seminar is designed to give you detailed insight into how the newest technology in fluids engineering can be used to raise your company to the next level - bring a new innovation to life, solve a problem in the system that seems hopeless, or dramatically reduce the risk involved with a product or process design.

Announcements The 9th UK Heat Transfer Conference, overseen by the UK National Committee for Heat Transfer, will take place in Manchester on 5-6th September 2005.

Papers are welcome on all aspects of heat transfer and related mass transfer, including applications such as bio-systems, gas turbines and i.c. engines, materials processing, micro-systems, power and process engineering.

Following on from the success of the 2003 UKHT conference in Oxford, we hope the conference will be an informal and lively occasion and particularly wish to encourage attendance by graduate students and others at early stages in their careers in heat transfer.
