“The Ansys Mentoring Service helped us to accelerate simulation-based noise estimation for our new cooling fan design to be used on TerraMAX® premium and high efficiency motor platform for our Marathon brand motors”
— Shivanand Khot, Director of Technology, Global Technology Center - Hyderabad, India
Regal Beloit Corporation, India, needed to develop a simulation-based method of estimating noise levels for their electric motors due to changes in cooling fan design. Previously, physical testing was used to predict the noise levels. As part of a new development platform, they decided to use a simulation-based noise prediction method at the preliminary design stage. In order to accelerate the development of the simulation- based noise method, Regal Beloit Corporation engaged with Ansys Mentor Expert Services.
Predicting noise through aeroacoustics simulation was never before attempted with the available software capability in Ansys Fluent. Hence, Regal Beloit Corporation decided to seek expert mentoring from Ansys, which helped them to quickly solve existing problems and develop a methodology for future cases.
