From bridges made of pasta, to 'grow-it-yourself' brains, Brigid looks behind the headlines to bring you the latest Engineering News.
LNG sloshing
Ships are being designed with increasingly larger insulated holding tanks to allow for a growing capacity in the marine industry and now more than ever, sloshing and structural integrity of these bigger tanks pose a significant technical challenge to the Marine Industry. Shown is LNG sloshing in a tank.
Sloshing in a Separator
Ships are being designed with increasingly larger tanks to allow for a growing capacity in the Marine Industry and now more then ever, there is a need for accurate prediction of structural loads on the tanks due to sloshing. Shown are the results from a sloshing analysis in a 3 phase separator on board a ship.
 Falling Lifeboat Simulation
The 6-DOF solver can be used in conjunction with moving or overset mesh. It allows the computational domain to move in any of the six possible translational or rotational degrees of freedom, allowing the numerical simulation of rigid body motion in a fully-coupled manner with the flow solver. Shown is a simulation of a free falling lifeboat slamming into the sea.
The DFBI model enables engineers to easily simulate the fluid induced movement of a body, for everything from life boat launch to a tanker listing under heavy seas. Shown here is a sloshing and slamming simulation of a tank falling into water.
Yacht Simulation
Today, more engineers are using STAR-CCM+® for aerodynamics analysis than any other tool on the market, a testimony to its advantages: quick turnaround time, accuracy and ease-of-use at a reasonable cost. Shown here is a simulation of a simplified America's cup yacht.
Five Blade Propeller Simulation
Using cutting-edge solver technology, CD-adapco’s customers have been able to tackle some of the most demanding problems facing the marine industry, allowing engineers to predict how designs will react in operation before budget is committed to the construction of expensive prototypes.Shown is the simulation of a five bladed propeller with an iso surface of vorticity.
Simulating Systems - FPSO vessel  in rough waves
The driving force behind DFBI simulations in STAR-CCM+® is the coupled 6-Degrees of Freedom (6-DOF) solver that computes the fluid forces and moments and gravitational forces on a body experiencing fluid-induced motion.Shown here is a simulation of FPSO vessel in rough waves.
CD-adapco™, the largest privately held CFD focused provider of Computer Aided Engineering software, today announced the opening of a third Indian office location in Chennai. CD-adapco already has well-established offices in Bangalore and Pune.
Animation of a Large Cargo Ship
Dynamic Fluid-Body Interaction (DBFI) refers to the interaction between a body and the fluid flow surrounding it and the resulting body motion due to external and flow-induced forces.The ability to simulate DFBI is a key capability that has benefits in a wide variety of applications in Marine Industry. Shown here is a DFBI simulation of a large cargo ship.
