Productivity Tips When Using ANSYS DesignModeler and ...
ANSYS DesignModeler and ANSYS Mechanical have always had intuitive GUIs. The inclusion of several powerful, ease-of-use tools in ANSYS 15.0 make these GUIs even more robust. The enhancements include hot keys, toolbar customization, tree filtering, model templates and rules-based named selections. Using these new tools reduce the time and effort required to create and evaluate models. This webinar explains the ease-of-use tools available in the updated DesignModeler and Mechanical packages.

Using SHELL Elements in ANSYS Mechanical
Thin-walled structures are extensively used throughout many industries, because they can exhibit a high load-carrying per weight capacity. Aircraft, automobiles, storage vessels, and industrial buildings are just a few examples of the type of structures that extensively employ thin-walled construction. Thin-walled structures present unique challenges for numerical simulation. It is conceptually simple to represent a thin-walled structure using traditional 3-D SOLID finite elements. However, it is often difficult to construct accurate, efficient meshes of thin-walled members using SOLID elements. Modeling thin structures using SOLID elements can be computationally very expensive. SHELL elements provide a computationally efficient alternative. They create a mathematical 2-D idealization of a 3-D structure that does not require the explicit modeling the thin dimension. This approach allows the use of efficient surface meshes. ANSYS Mechanical 15.0 provides many tools for meshing and joining thin-walled models using SHELL elements. This webinar will discuss these tools. It will begin with a short presentation. After the presentation, a panel of experts from the ANSYS development and technical services groups will answer questions on this topic live via WebEx.

Major Changes to Fatigue Life Through Minor Changes in ...
Minor modifications to product design can cause major consequences on the fatigue life of products. Optimizing for a desired product life involves trade-offs in geometry materials used. The ideal design withstands real-life usage without failure while limiting the design, manufacturing and maintenance costs. Evaluating the design trade-offs can be a daunting task. The ANSYS Workbench environment with automatic optimization affords great time and labor savings while performing the analysis, which leads to significant cost savings via high-product integrity. This webinar describes the use of ANSYS nCode DesignLife within Workbench and demonstrates the ease with which fatigue life can be optimized.

Multiphysics Optimization of an LED Light Bulb Using ANSYS
Electronics engineers feel the extreme pressures to design an optimized products. To accurately capture the real world phenomenon, they include multiphysics solutions and available optimization techniques during the design stage. ANSYS Icepak 15.0 links to ANSYS DesignXplorer within the ANSYS Workbench framework. This capability allows a more robust parametrization and multiphysics optimization using inputs from multiple Workbench modules. This webinar showcases DesignXplorer optimization of an LED light bulb heat sink using geometric input parameters from ANSYS DesignModeler and output parameters from Icepak and ANSYS Structural. The optimized design includes a minimal heat sink mass and thermal stress while constraining the temperature to a given limit.

Customizing ANSYS Mechanical Using the Application ...
The ANSYS Application Customization Toolkit (ACT) is a package of tools that enables the end user to customize ANSYS Mechanical. ACT provides the end user simple programming-level access to main components of the Mechanical product (e.g., GUI, mesh, geometry, boundary conditions, etc.) in a Python programming environment. One of the many customization possibilities ACT offers is the ability to replace MAPDL command objects by creating specialized interfaces for company or industry specific applications. These specialized interfaces can simplify and standardize many Mechanical actions. ANSYS DesignModeler and ANSYS DesignXplorer users realize significant enhancements and ease-of-use improvements ACT in ANSYS 15.0. This webinar explains the basic functions and uses of ACT. It discusses implementation and provides examples.

ANSYS Fluent UDF Programming Tips and Tricks
This webinar examines the structure and details of small user-defined functions (UDF). As the UDF structure expands and is more likely to be shared between users, designers should consider some points of style for readability, continued development and reusability. Common programming ideas, such as once and only once and keeping function definitions short, help engineers write clear and more maintainable UDFs. The effort in creating UDFs more functional and object-oriented allows the reuse of sections of software, time savings on larger projects, and easier debugging. This presentation, geared for general ANSYS Fluent users, highlights other techniques to make more professional UDFs. Through the use of RPvars to set model parameters and keep functionally related coding in separate files, UDFs remain maintainable and reusable. With the use of addon.scm files, users can more easily incorporate the UDFs without any special knowledge or training. The webinar begins with a brief presentation of UDF points of style and other techniques on improving UDF design.

Modeling of the Fuel Supply Module and its Components
In this 60-minute webcast speakers from both Continental and ANSYS will provide insight into the simulation of the complete fuel system, including detailed component models. The panel will also answer questions from the audience. For Continental, a benefit of simulation is that the overall system model is used to predict the energy consumption of the whole FSM unit or its components as well as to calculate CO2 emissions. Based on the results of the system model, engineers can choose the best FSM design to reach CO2 emission reduction targets.

ANSYS HFSS 3-D Layout Webinar
Learn how the ANSYS HFSS 3-D layout feature simplifies modeling of layered structures such PCB and high-speed components. HFSS 3-D Layout is ideal for designers who work in layered geometry or layout of high-speed components, including on-chip embedded passives, IC packages and PCB interconnects. These types of designs can be easily modeled in the HFSS electrical layout environment while, at the same time, simulating for all 3-D features, such as trace thickness and etching as well as bondwires, solder bumps and solder balls. Geometry such as trace width can be easily parameterized and optimized using the integrated ANSYS Optimetrics tool in the HFSS 3-D layout interface.
