Simulating Composite Products with ANSYS - Webinar

Advanced composite materials, offering strength and weight advantages over metals, are finding increasing use in a wide range of industries. The engineering of composite structures involves complex definitions that includes numerous layers, materials, thickness and orientations.

Simulation with Computational Structural Mechanics (i.e. FEA) is ideal for analysing stresses and deformations as well as a range of failure criteria. The engineering challenge being to predict how well the finished product will perform under real-world working conditions.

Please join us for this one-hour webex to see the capabilities of the ANSYS suite of tools for composite simulation and the engineering insight provided by these. In addition, through a product demonstration of ANSYS Composite PrepPost and ANSYS Mechanical, attendees will see how engineers use this tool set to build models and understand how they will perform under various loading conditions through an intuitive and easy-to-use work flow.

To Showcase the Noise and Vibration Capability of the ANSYS Software - Webinar

Noise and vibration issues affect a wide range of industries. In addition, they often arise late in the development cycle at the prototype stage and are so difficult and expensive to mitigate. However, with the increased use of transient simulation and dynamic analysis, there has been rapid growth in recent years in the use of engineering software for the prediction of noise and vibration in industrial applications.

This webinar presents an overview of the hierarchy of methods that exists within the ANSYS CFD and FEA software to address the noise and vibration problems. The widespread application of these methods is demonstrated by test cases taken from, for example, the automotive gas turbine, aerospace and sound reproduction industries.

Wind and Tidal Stream Modelling Using ANSYS CFD - Webinar

The analysis of wind farm sites, "Wind Resource Assessment", has traditionally been carried out using simplified flow analyses implemented in special purpose software such as WasP. These methods can work very well for simple sites with relatively flat terrain. However, because of the need for greater accuracy and reliability, and the need to consider more challenging sites, e.g. with complex terrain, forestry or strong wake interactions, CFD is being increasingly used for Resource Assessment.

WindModeller has been developed by the Technical Services Team in the UK and is a vertical application based around ANSYS CFD to enable the analysis of potential wind farm sites. It has also been modified to enable the modelling of tidal stream farms in a similar fashion, leading to TideModeller. This webinar will describe:
- The technical challenges faced by the Wind and Tidal Energy Industries and benefits of CFD simulations. - An overview of the advanced CFD models in WindModeller to meet these challenges, including complex terrain, forestry, wakes and atmospheric stability. - The analysis of CFD results to provide the information required by the wind industry. - The extension of the methodology to tidal stream farms.

The Study of Bolt Severance by a Bolt Cutter - Webinar

Severing a bolt is a dynamic and complicated event; the severance mechanism has been difficult to understand because the entire process takes less than one millisecond. Bolt severance includes both penetration of the bolt by the downward-accelerating knife, and fragmentation of the bolt on the wedge-shaped anvil underneath.

To better understand the bolt severance mechanism for reliable bolt cutter design, engineers at Pacific Scientific Energetic Materials Company used ANSYS Autodyn explicit dynamics software in Lagrangian mode. In this webinar, you will learn that fast pressure rise and high peak pressure are the most critical parameters for bolt severance. You will also take away an understanding of the five-step mechanism for bolt severance that the engineers extracted from post-simulation analysis.

Applications in Oil and Gas Safety and Reliability at Petrobras - Webinar

Analysis of Repairs in Metal-Composite in the Oil Industry
Carlos Eduardo Reuther de Siqueira, Petrobras

In the offshore oil industry, corrosion of metal pipes, ship sidewalls, and semi-submersible platforms is a problem due to contact with salt water. Repairing the defects in these metallic systems through welding usually requires transporting the damaged piece to a shipyard, which is a costly and time consuming process.

Engineers at Petrobras decided to explore the possibility of using carbon-fiber-reinforced polymer (CFRP) composites to patch the holes in metal components in situ. Knowing that the anisotropic physical properties of the metal and the composite could pose challenges in achieving a robust, failure-resistant repair, the engineers used ANSYS ACP in static analysis to model the system first. The simulations evaluated the stresses and strains in each layer of the composite and in the composite—metal system as a whole as part of a complete failure analysis. In this seminar, engineers present the results of these simulations, which strongly indicate that metal components can be successfully repaired in situ using composites, with little possibility of failure.

Basic Engineering Design of Flares on Oil Platforms Using Computational Fluid Dynamics
Paulo Roberto Pagot, Petrobras

Flaring burns waste gas that is a byproduct of oil extraction. Knowledge of the volume, shape, and radiation behavior of a flare is essential in designing an oil platform that will not be damaged by the flare and is safe for oil rig workers. The basic design of a flare determines the platform’s tower height, as well as whether additional protection, such as a heat shield, is needed.

In this webinar, Petrobras engineers discuss how they used ANSYS Fluent to model pipe burner annular air flares in 3-D.The flame profile, visible flame, soot emissions, incident radiation, and wall temperature were simulated under calm, average, and maximum wind conditions. Join us to learn how increasing wind speed bent the flame and altered its dimensions, thus heating up the platform structure. You will also discover that the incident solar radiation heats the structure faster than the convective wind can cool it. All of this can help you in your future flare engineering design projects.

Advancement in Turbomachinery Blade Rows - Webinar

Current turbomachinery end-user requirements of higher efficiency, performance and durability often imply higher aerodynamic, thermal and mechanical loadings, as well as less conventional designs. To deal with the increased complexity, higher levels of simulation fidelity are often required. While steady simulation methods remain a workhorse tool, transient methods are now more frequently used. However, there is an associated cost. Transient full wheel analysis can determine the circumferential variation of the flow, and response of the structure, but such an approach can be both expensive and time consuming. Fortunately, single sector models, with the ability to reproduce the full 360-degree fluid and structural behavior, are available, enabling designers to study candidate designs in an efficient manner. This webinar will focus on the latest Transient Blade Row (TBR) and Cyclic Symmetry modeling techniques, including the effect of mistuning, which enable the user to obtain full-annulus results by analyzing only a single sector. This webinar will also present the usage of these new techniques to solve two important phenomena, namely – Flutter and Forced Response.

Improving Turbocharger Design - Webinar

Increasing the power output of smaller engines, engine downsizing and reducing emissions are the current requirements of the industry. Turbocharged the engine is considered to be the preferred way to achieve this goal. Turbocharger design requirement include stringent specifications for performance, range, life, noise, size and efficiency - thus a multiphysics simulation approach is required. The process is accelerated by performing initial design iterations using 2D tools, to quickly filter designs, and then carrying out full 3D analysis on relatively smaller set of candidates. In this webinar we will discuss how ANSYS tools can be used for fast, comprehensive and high-fidelity turbocharger design. ANSYS provides a full set of 1D, 2D and 3D tools within an integrated framework, ANSYS Workbench. A goal driven optimization using 2D through flow solution will be demonstrated for rapid scanning of candidate designs.
