Simulation of Airflow during a Sniff (Bates, Cetto, Doorly, Imperial College)
Large-scale computations with STAR-CCM+ to chart how the airflow evolves during a sniff, illustrating how the air we breathe moves inside our airways when we inhale. This helps our understanding of nasal physiology and could be helpful in treating medical conditions (courtesy of Bates, Cetto, Doorly, Imperial College)
The Access TechCenter provides an ideal environment for process engineering and component manufacturing via casting. Our main task: reach technological readiness and provide a production capability according to industrial standards. Access guarantees the transfer of its developments into industrial production and is ready to support implementation at the customer’s site. Access has been approved and certified to provide prototype parts for the new generation of aero engines and car engines.
Research into fundamentals of solidification and solid state phase transformations is essential. It enables us to accomplish a knowledge-based development of metallic materials for dedicated applications. We use state of the art experimental and analytical equipment, Thermo-Calc and our proprietary microstructure simulation software MICRESS® to comprehend the thermodynamics and kinetics of microstructure formation.
Access is an independent research centre associated with the Technical University of Aachen (RWTH) in Germany.
Harmonic Balance Solution View
STAR-CCM+ v9.06 includes the new Harmonic Balance (HB) Solution View for improved post-processing. The animation shows the pressure contours on the whole disc using the HB Solution View.
Spend time in the boardrooms or around the water coolers of Houston, and the subject will soon turn to the day’s oil price. Due to a combination of anemic global economic growth and, among other things, the supply side revolution of North American Shale, the oil price has plummeted by almost 30% in the past 3 months. As I write this blog WTI* is trading at a 5 year low, leaving the industry contemplating the considerable challenge of operating at $50 per barrel. While each company’s view on how to tackle this new paradigm will differ, for many it will be to continue the day job (deliver quality, innovative products and solutions), but at reduced time and cost, without compromising safety. It’s my belief that first principles approach, based engineering simulation tools such as those we (CD-adapco) deliver, will be a key enabler, as companies will increasingly rely on simulation based design exploration. The initial driver will be to reduce engineering cost and time, but they’ll also benefit from simulation as an innovation enabler.
Geometry Simplification in Electronics Thermal Simulations: How Much is Too Much?
Two aspects of electronics design present particular challenges for thermal simulations of electronics devices. First, the mechanical (including thermal) portion of the overall design cycle is typically quite short, even as short as a week or two, so simulation results are desired very quickly. Second, electronics assemblies often include many complex individual parts among the hundreds or thousands of total parts within the assembly. Not all the parts are thermally significant but complex parts such as a molded housing or detailed heat sinks are. The needed complexity of parts is...
Canal de Provas Virtual: Como CFD pode auxiliar o seu projeto a atender aos requisitos EEDI sem comprometer a velocidade de operação da embarcação
Em janeiro de 2013, a IMO ( International Maritime Organization ) apresentou o conceito do EEDI ( Energy Efficiency Design Index ) como uma forma de avaliar a eficiência energética de novas embarcações. O objetivo da regulamentação do EEDI é reduzir as emissões de CO 2 . Isso muitas vezes leva projetistas e engenheiros a reduzir o tamanho do motor e, consequentemente, as emissões. No entanto, pode também penalizar as velocidades de operação. Este Webinar irá apresentar como tecnologia de CFD ( Computational Fluid Dynamics ) está sendo utilizada para avaliar e melhorar os projetos de...
Canal de pruebas Virtual: Cómo el CFD puede auxiliar tu proyecto en cumplir con los requisitos del EEDI sin comprometer la velocidad de operación del buque
En Enero de 2013, la IMO ( International Maritime Organization ) presentó el concepto del EEDI ( Energy Efficiency Design Index ) como una forma de evaluar la eficiencia energética de los nuevos buques. El objetivo del reglamento EEDI es reducir las emisiones de CO 2 . Esto obligaría a diseñadores e ingenieros reducir el tamaño del motor (consecuentemente las emisiones) o las velocidades de operación de los buques. En este Webinar se mostrará el uso de la tecnología CFD ( Computational Fluid Dynamics ) para evaluar y mejorar el rendimiento propulsivo de las embarcaciones. Los objetivos son...
It is our pleasure to announce James Bertwistle as the winner of the 2015 CD-adapco Calendar Contest. This year again, contestants from all around the world submitted images of exceptional quality. James’s entry, which represents the Wind Effects around Tall London Buildings, scooped the first prize owing to its beautiful and accurate representation of the impact of CFD in the planning process of man-made structures.
