ANSYS Advantage Issue 2, 2019
Spotlight on Fluids
To leverage pervasive engineering simulation, every engineer must have access to simulation throughout design, testing and operation processes. To do this effectively means eliminating bottlenecks. Recent advances in computational fluid dynamics have reduced these bottlenecks for engineers, whether they are recent graduates or world-class simulations experts. This issue of ANSYS Advantage describes these advances and reveals how organizations around the world benefit from this technology.
