ANSYS Advantage - Volume VII, Issue 1, 2013 - Simulation for Aerospace

SIMULATION FOR THE AEROSPACE

The aerospace and defense (A&D) industry is incredibly diverse, and its engineering teams face a wide range of challenges. This issue of ANSYS Advantage spotlights how engineering simulation is helping the aerospace industry address some of these challenges including improving fuel efficiency, environmental compliance, sustainment and much more. In addition, articles include an interview with an executive at FMC Technologies who discusses the use of multiphyics and systems simulation in the offshore and oil and gas industries. Other organizations are applying simulation to solar power generation, developing a machine to product precision-tailored magnets and improving the performance of wet scrubbers.
