    If you are involved in the design or operation of offshore vessels and are interested in learning how industry leaders such as Heerema Marine Contractors (HMC) are using CFD as part of the Naval Architect’s toolkit, this webinar is for you.

    Designing and operating offshore vessels can be a challenging, making an accurate understanding of vessel behavior an economic and safety necessity. While potential flow codes and model tests remain key parts of the Naval Architect’s toolkit, their limitations are well known. For example, Chevron reports that differences between the model test and field behavior for Vortex Induced Motion (VIM) has unnecessarily added millions of dollars to project costs.

    Universities are increasingly using the flipped classroom model as an alternative method of teaching. How do methodologies of the flipped model approach benefit engineering students, and what examples are being utilized in engineering companies? Furthermore, how are professors employing these techniques today?

    In this online event, Professor Ron Averill discusses examples of the flipped model used at Michigan State University and will explore different teaching approaches. The advantages of lifelong learning and relevant learning tools that can prepare engineers for the transition to industry will be discussed. Engineering professors, students and researchers can learn how and why the use of this unique learning approach by a wide range of industries...

    The simulation of respiratory systems is a growing field within the life sciences industry, with applications ranging from inhaler design optimization to the modeling of particle deposition into lungs and assessing the efficacy of inhaled medications.

    In this webinar we will discuss and demonstrate how leading simulation software can be used to prototype device designs, eliminating the need for time-consuming clinical tests. Topics will include the modeling of the device, in silico modeling of nasal passages and respiratory tracts, diagnostics and even virtual surgeries to aid the decision-making process.

    Simulations provide a means of gaining valuable insight into delicate, often inaccessible areas, allowing the use of patient specific data.

    유동이 균일하도록 섞는 혼합은 화학, 제약 및 많은 유관 산업에서 널리 사용되는 응용 분야입니다. 광범위한 사용에도 불구하고, 혼합 응용 분야에서의 해석들은 여전히 많은 난제들이 있습니다. 매년 수십억 달러가 잘못된 혼합으로 손실되고 있다고 알려져 있습니다. 이와 같이 많은 미 해결 문제들을 해소하기 위해 해석적인 방법이나 실험 측정들이 실행되고 있지만 여전히 다음과 같은 영역에서는 해답을 찾지 못하고 있습니다.

    • 스케일 업
    • 새로운 설계안 또는 장치내 다양한 내부 구성품
    • 특정 작동(운전) 조건 또는 장애 해결

    이런 미지수들은 위에 언급된 방법들로 해결할 수 없지만 전산유체역학 (CFD) 시뮬레이션을 사용하면 보다 나은 결과를 얻을 수 있습니다.

    본 온라인 세미나에 참석하시면, 혼합 시뮬레이션 해석 수행에 대한 기본 과정을 배울 수 있습니다. 전문가가 손쉽게 시뮬레이션을 설정하는 데모를 보여드리고 다양한 시스템에 대한 모범 사례들을 소개합니다. 어떻게 CFD 해석이 혼합 공정에...

    From the bending of a tree branch in the wind to the flexing of an aircraft wing as it crosses the Atlantic, fluids and solids interact in harmony everywhere in the real world. However, in the virtual world of engineering simulation, the picture has rarely been in concert. Structural analysis and fluid dynamics, although intrinsically linked, have long been quite separate disciplines with the interaction between deforming structures and flowing fluids only being considered at a most basic level.

    The picture is changing, however, as innovative simulation tools are providing a better understanding of the interactions between fluids and solids helping engineers create better designs, faster.

    This webinar will demonstrate how simulation within a single integrated user...

    Micro turbines represent a promising solution to the continuing global search for more reliable, affordable and safer access to cleaner energy. They meet this environmental challenge by producing enough distributed combined-heat-and-power (CHP) to satisfy residential-level demands for heating and electricity. In addition, they must produce emissions and noise at acceptably low levels. 

    This webinar focuses on how CFD/CHT simulation was used to discover better designs faster, ultimately yielding a highly reliable and cost-efficient micro turbine capable of generating 3kW of power:

    • Simulations included heat transfer in addition to flow dynamics.
    • Conjugate Heat Transfer (CHT) was used to develop and evaluate the heat management of the GT system.

    In our last webinar, we looked at how simulation can be utilized in the design and scale-up of various reactors.

    In this webinar we continue to investigate the multiphase flow phenomenon within reactors in more detail. For example, in a trickle bed reactor the flow regime depends on many complex factors, if not accounted for this can lead to poor micro and macro distribution, resulting in catalyst activity loss and failure to meet product specifications.

    This online event will be looking at advanced modeling methods to uncover such phenomena.

    Many mixing vessels may develop deep vortices, these may be desirable or undesirable. They also result in an engulfment of gas from upper spaces into the liquid. While free surface modeling using VOF can be time consuming, one...
