For more than 100 years, ship designers have built ships using the evolutionary appproach - one small improvement per design generation. Within the last few years, CFD has provided a grounbreaking technology to enable the revolutionary approach - true optimization for every design generation. CFD has become a practical tool in almost every sense. This is true not just from the technical point of view, but from the business point of view as well. It enables a proactive approach to solving client problems, and provides the means to revolutionize a maritime industry that is traditionally...
Electric propulsion is on the verge of causing the biggest changes in aviation since the advent of the jet engine. At first glance, it may seem that the excessive weight (i.e. low specific energy) of today’s batteries limits electric aircraft to, at best, a few trivial niches. However, the different properties of electric propulsion compared to traditional combustion power, coupled with recent technology advances, promise to significantly relax typical design constraints for many aircraft configurations, which will allow for new types of aircraft that were previously impractical or impossible...
Reducing Development Costs of Subsurface Equipment through Simulation
As the oil and gas industry adapts to the “lower for longer” market, reducing costs and improving the production and efficiency of drilling and subsurface activities takes on even greater importance. Considering the current climate of the oil and gas industry, simulations are especially essential to enable companies to come up with better designs, faster, and at a reduced cost. This webcast focuses on the role of simulation in the design of drill bits, Inflow Control Devices or Valves (ICDs, ICVs), Electric Submersible Pumps (ESPs), and other down hole tools. The event, which will also...
Switched reluctance machines (SRMs) have recently become popular in the automotive market as they are a good alternative to the permanent magnet machines commonly employed for an electric powertrain. Lumped parameter thermal networks are usually used for thermal analysis of motors due to their low computational cost and relatively accurate results. A critical aspect to be modelled is the rotor-stator air-gap heat transfer, and this is particularly challenging in an SRM due to the salient pole geometry. This work presents firstly a review of the literature including the most relevant...

The phenomenon of three-dimensional flow separation is and has been in the focus of many researchers. An improved understanding of the physics and the driving forces is desired to be able to improve numerical simulations and to minimize aerodynamic drag over bluff bodies. To investigate the sources of separation one wants to understand what happens at the surface when the flow starts to detach and the upwelling of the streamlines becomes strong. This observation of a flow leaving the surface could be captured by investigating the limiting streamlines and surface parameters as pressure,...
One main goal in the aerodynamic development of passenger vehicles is reduced fuel consumption. As vehicles are bluff bodies, drag is dominated by pressure drag, which is mainly caused by detached flow. To enable further reductions of the drag, it is of great importance to understand the physical phenomena behind separation. In this paper the influence of surface pressure gradients on the flow pattern of a full-scale passenger vehicle is investigated. The objective is threefold: i) Present the flow pattern on upper parts of the vehicle, ii) discuss the pressure gradients around selected areas...
Simulações acústicas: ruído e vibração
Projetos de engenharia atuais requerem avaliações envolvendo ruído e vibrações cada vez mais profundas. De um lado os requisitos têm se tornado constantemente mais restritivos e por outro lado os consumidores tem escolhido seus produtos também baseado em níveis de ruído percebido. Entre as principais fontes de ruído pode-se destacar como exemplos: máquinas rotativas tais como ventiladores, misturadores, motores elétricos, turbocharger, etc.; características do escoamento externo em veículos, aviões, etc.; transmissão de ruído proveniente de vibração e escoamento em sistemas de dutos, tais...
