Design Analysis of Scuba Diving fins with Ansys Discovery 

This Ansys Discovery case study explores scuba diving fin design for first and second-year engineering students. It compares scuba diving fins made from Polypropylene (PP) and Carbon Fiber Reinforced Epoxy (CFRP) composites through structural analysis, adding depth to engineering decision-making. Comparing paddle and split fins in fluid flow simulation explores water interaction's impact on flow patterns. Students will benefit from foundational knowledge in structural analysis and fluid dynamics through this case study.

Learning Outcomes

  • Understanding of structural analysis; Ability to use Ansys Discovery to set up an external flow fluid simulation
  • Gain fluid dynamics insights
  • Awareness of importance of simulation in engineering problems and critical thinking on simulation scope
