Academic Alumni can receive 250 Power-on-Demand hours to support STAR-CCM+ training or just to refresh their skills. This is an excellent example of how the CD-adapco Global Academic Program is committed to helping students achieve a smooth transition from academia and industry.
James Guitar - Michigan State University Dejan Matic & Lauren Wright, CD-adapco. Attracted by its versatility and accuracy, The Michigan State University (MSU) Formula SAE team is using STAR-CCM+ to design a 2009 Formula SAE race car. Dynamics 30 - Read more...
One of the best illustrations of "Simulating Systems" is this video from the STAR Global Conference 2013, in which Scott D. Reynolds of M/E Engineering explores the use of CFD for studying the impact of wind on the built environment. Asked to examine the influence of helicopter exhaust plumes on surrounding bulidings, M/E Engineering decided to simulate the whole system, including fully unsteady wind profiles (with gusts that vary in speed and direction), and the full complexity of the local urban landscape. Best of all, the simulation includes an actual moving helicopter that entrains gas...
CFD for the Chemical Process Industry: Multiphase Flows
Multiphase flows are everywhere in the chemical industry. Flows with two or more phases and concomitant interphase mass exchange and heat transfer are encountered in bubble columns, stirred tank reactors, fluidized bed reactors and many other processing equipment. Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) simulation of multiphase flows is a challenging task. This webcast will demonstrate the appropriate choice of models and correct definition of boundary conditions and solver parameters are critical in arriving at reliable solutions. Specialists reveal the various modeling approaches, available...
Design and Thermal Analysis of Electric Machines Using Analytical and CFD Methods
The trend to design smaller, lighter weight and higher efficiency electric machines has created growing challenges in the development process. Engineers are confronted with ongoing issues; including a better understanding of the effects of heating and applying the most effective cooling measures. This webcast will offer attendees an alternative design process for finding a more efficient initial design of an e-machine. Presenters will show a combination of classical analytical and numerical FE based approaches to design, using SPEED software. The second part of the webcast will demonstrate...
Reduzindo os custos de desenvolvimento de produto e garantia através do uso de simulação.
O mercado Brasileiro apresenta um desafio único para os times de Powertrain. A grande variação de teor de etanol requer grande flexibilidade dos sistemas de combustão, o que pode causar problemas de performance e potenciais problemas de garantia. A Dinâmica de Fluidos Computacional (CFD) tem feito parte da rotina do processo de desenvolvimento de sistema de sistemas de combustão automotivo, resultando em produtos de melhor desempenho e custos mais baixos na prototipagem física. Trabalhando em conjunto com seus parceiros a CD-adapco desenvolveu novas funcionalidades de combustão...
The main benefit of the Harmonic Balance method is that you can solve unsteady flow problems using steady flow solver techniques, as in this analysis of a NASA rotor compressor blade. This means that the method is often faster and therefore much more cost-efficient than conventional time-accurate time-marching approaches.
Geometry Preparation for Electronics Thermal Simulations Series 2 Part 2
Historically, thermal simulations of electronic systems have utilized dramatically simplified geometric versions of the systems. The simplifications show up in two main ways: Part count reductions, where assemblies that might actually contain thousands of components are simulated using 200 parts or less. Individual components are dramatically simplified so that they end up as nearly or completely orthogonal even when in reality they involve highly sculpted, organic shapes. For some assemblies the inaccuracy, due to these simplifications, is still within acceptable levels, but for many modern...
"Prediction is very difficult, especially if it's about the future" - Niels Bohr, Nobel laureate in Physics Whether you like it or not, as a simulation engineer you are in the prediction game. Put simply, your job is to predict how an abstract design would perform in the real world, hopefully accounting for the most challenging operating conditions that it would likely experience during its working life. Compared with other professional forecasters such as economists, television meteorologists or political commentators, the audience for engineering predictions is more critical and less likely...
Simulation for Subsea Engineering and Flow Assurance
Subsea engineering raises many challenges, especially those issues relating to system integrity and flow assurance. The role of engineering simulation is becoming more important during both field development and operation. This has created increased requirements for detailed analysis, combining complex systems and physics such as multiphase flow, solids management and flow-induced motions. Ongoing development in software technology and reduced hardware costs means 3D simulation of a wide range of subsea and flow assurance applications is increasingly feasible and adding significant value...
