Automotive Simulation World Congress - Call for Presentations
Posted Friday December 19 at 1:14pm
The ANSYS Automotive Simulation World Congress is a wide-reaching platform for you to share your engineering simulation technology achievements and showcase your company's strengths to colleagues around the world.
We welcome submissions of presentations on all aspects of simulation, from structural (FEA), to fluids (CFD), thermal, electromagnetics, circuit simulation and embedded software simulation, pertaining to various vehicle systems.
Fluid-Structure Interaction on Wind Turbine Rotor Blades
Posted Thursday December 18 at 9:25am
By Alp Emre Öngüt, M.Sc. and Dipl.–Ing. Norbert Hosters
Chair for Computational Analysis of Technical Systems (CATS)
Center for Computational Engineering Science
RWTH Aachen University, Germany
At the Chair for Computational Analysis for Technical Systems (CATS) at the RWTH Aachen University, Pointwise is used as the mesh generation tool for various computational fluid dynamics (CFD) applications, such as design and optimization of profile extrusion dies, simulation of blood pumps, fluid structure interaction for colloidal aggregates and aeroelastic simulation of horizontal axis wind turbines. In this article, mesh generation with Pointwise for the wind turbine application is explained.
Best Practice for Engineering CFD
Posted Tuesday December 16 at 2:17pm
ERCOFTAC will host Best Practice for Engineering CFD on October 22-23 in Munich Germany.
This course is targeted at relatively new and improving CFD analysts in engineering industries and consultancies. It provides the knowledge to effect a step-change in the accuracy and reliability of CFD practices across a range of engineering applications relevant to the power generation, aerospace, automotive, built environment and turbomachinery sectors – amongst others.
Practical Shape Optimization using CFD
Posted Tuesday December 9 at 11:3am
Today’s engineering firms have embraced optimization as a critical component within simulation-driven design. Although the algorithms are reasonably mature and well understood, the different methods for the shape variation of critical surfaces and components are not.
The free FRIENDSHIP SYSTEMS whitepaper gives a comprehensive overview of the various methods available today and their relative strengths and weaknesses for conducting practical shape optimization using CFD.
