Antenna Design And Platform Integration Analyses Using HFSS
This webinar begins with a brief description of Ansys HFSS and how it is used to reduce the risks associated with designing today’s antennas. A variety of antennas from different industries are shown to demonstrate how antenna engineers not familiar with HFSS can quickly gain benefit from the software. Advanced techniques, that allow engineers to look beyond the antenna and begin considering how it interacts with the system or platform into which it is integrated, are also illustrated.
Ansys Maxwell Model-Based FEA Integration into NI HiL Simulation
The embedded software development process starts with the design of the control strategy and then goes through prototyping and deployment to production hardware. That is followed by various real-time testing tasks such as hardware-in-the-loop (HiL) validation, test cell validation and field testing. The focus is commonly on the reuse of models throughout the process to improve development quality and efficiency. View this webinar in which we will demonstrate how Ansys Maxwell can be used in the simulation-driven design of a typical motor drive application with a battery stack, a battery management system, a DC bus, an inverter and a traction motor. The trend is toward faster, higher power PWM signal switching. The smoothness of this output waveform has a huge impact on the behavior of the closed-loop system; its dynamics affect the efficiency and vibration of the motor. Learn how a well-tuned HIL system can help test and diagnose problems, and in doing so can lead to a safer, more efficient closed loop control system. Discover how performing this software-based test often reduces the time required for controller validation.
Thermal Management of LEDs
Up to 85 percent of the electrical power used to drive light emitting diodes (LEDs) is converted to heat. Engineers must design LEDs carefully so that they do not become too hot to touch or cause components to break. Determining the temperature of the LED itself and the enclosure requires simulating the current passing through the conductors, heat transfer to the air, the temperature of the LED and fixture, and the resulting mechanical stresses. Join us for a 20-minute webinar to see how simulation from Ansys makes the simulation of all these forces impacting thermal management in LEDs easy and intuitive.
Pressure Drop Through a Valve
Pressure drop through a valve is a function of system demand and increases with increasing flowrate. Understanding pressure drop in valves and the response to changes in flowrate in the connected system is a key concern for engineers who need to select the right valve for the job. See how simulation from Ansys can help make simulations for valve selection easy and straightforward in just 20 min.
Polyflow Screw Modeling
Ansys Polyflow's unique mesh superposition technique (MST) capability makes detailed 3D modeling of both single screw and twin screw extruders a reality. In this 20-minute webinar session, learn how you can make meaningful engineering decisions using a practical modeling approach. Understand the underlying assumptions and see sample outputs, including pressure distribution, temperature and shear rate.
Insertion Force of a Snap-Fit Connector
Snap-fit connectors are one of the oldest and most common fastener devices. They have the advantages of speed of connection/disconnection over other fastening methods, with no loose parts that could be misplaced. However, their proper operation requires precise design to ensure that the amount of force it takes to fasten or separate the connector, and the direction of application of that force, is optimal for the desired application. Join us for this 30-minute webinar to see the how insertion force of a snap-fit connector can be quickly calculated using simulation from Ansys. Learn how to determine what type of snap-fit to use, the required insertion force for operation and the amount of stress that various parts of the connector will experience.
Fluid Flow from Blood Vessels Scans
Information about blood pressure and flow through blood vessels is valuable to doctors working to improve patient health, and to medical device manufacturers looking to improve their product designs. Simulation is one way to gain deep insight about hemodynamic effects. However, a simulation must be performed for each individual patient to be truly effective. Blood vessels are tortuous and irregularly shaped, making them nearly impossible to draw using CAD methods. As a result, medical scanning techniques the result in STL files are the usual source of simulation geometry. Join us for a 20-minute webinar to see how simulation software makes it easy to go from raw STL geometry to blood flow analysis using Ansys solutions.
Evaluating Fatigue on a Bicycle Frame
Biking enthusiasts want bicycles that are durable enough to withstand their pursuits while being light enough to transport easily. Bike manufacturers want to meet customer expectations while minimizing material and transportation costs. Bicycle designers have a multitude of options for bike frame configuration, material type and material thickness to choose from to design bicycles that best address both consumer and business needs. Join us for this 20-minute webinar to see how simulation from ANSYS can make evaluating these options virtually fast and easy. Learn how you can simulate fatigue on bicycle frames to see how well and how long they will withstand the stresses riders will place on them before you ever build a physical prototype. You can save time and money on future bicycle designs, and get your product to the market faster than ever before.

Calculating Force in a Relay
Relays are electrically operated switches. They use a DC electric current to create a magnetic force and move an armature that makes or breaks the electrical connection. Relay designers are interested in the current density in the coil, the magnetic flux density in the iron components and the magnetic force in the armature. Ansys electromagnetics solutions can simulate these properties to give you insight into your innovative relay designs. Join us for this 20-minute webinar to see how Ansys simulation can make calculating the force in a relay fast and easy.
