An Automated Method for Using FEA to Identify PTHs and Microvias at Failure Risk
Plated through-holes (PTHs) and vias are widely deployed across the electronics industry for their ability to interconnect signal circuits at different printed circuit board (PCB) layers. But for many designers and engineers, vias and PTHs are sources of concern and difficulty when it comes to reliability: They are frequently the cause of open circuits on PCBs. Traditionally, the inconsistency of plating quality across manufacturers and the lack of robust material characterization make it challenging to develop models capable of predicting the reliability and manufacturability of these interconnects. In this webinar, we will discuss the reliability challenges inherent in the utilization of PTHs and microvias. You will learn a methodology to analyze tens of thousands of interconnects on a PCB — and identify which are likely to fail — by simulating them under thermal loading using fine element modeling (FEM) and performing manufacturability and reliability analyses.

ANSYS Fault-Tolerant Meshing for the Oil and Gas Industry
Many important and complex simulations involve dirty and non-watertight geometries; creating a good quality mesh is always a challenging part of any such simulation. These complex meshes consume significant engineering time and effort in geometry preparation, largely involving extensive clean-up and repair. Now, ANSYS Fluent includes a fault-tolerant meshing workflow that can simplify and speed meshing for even the dirtiest geometries with no geometry preparation required.

ANSYS Composite Cure Simulation
Tool designers frequently try to compensate distortions based on their experience and trial-and-error testing. This can work for simple geometries, but not for complex ones. The time and effort to manually compensate parts can be huge Over the last decade, we have been advancing the capabilities of ANSYS Mechanical to address the unique challenges of composite finite element analysis (FEA) simulation. The ANSYS Composite Cure Simulation (ACCS) can quickly solve curing problems in cases where experience falls short. In this webinar, you will learn how ACCS was used in the design of 170 molds for the Airbus A350 XWB, as well as for other applications. Presenter: Douglas Weber-Steinhaus
Multiscale Modeling of Multiphase Flows
Several technologically important processes involve a variety of multiphase flows, e.g., in chemical processing, oil and gas (upstream and downstream), energy/power generation technologies, mineral processing and metallurgy, speciality and fine chemicals, etc. Multiphase flows occurring in these process applications often involve multiple different length and time scales. It is difficult to simulate such multiphase flows with widely varying length/time scales using any one computational method. Depending on the required information, such multiphase flow problems can be creatively divided into multiple smaller problems and appropriate computational methods can be used to predict the flow behavior at different scales. In this webinar, we will demonstrate a multiscale approach using single/two-phase flow through packed bed reactors. We will focus on how particle-resolved simulations can be used to study the effect of catalyst shape on particle-scale flow, heat transfer, reactions and catalyst deactivation in packed bed reactors. Further, applications of the Eulerian multifluid method to simulate the bed-scale gas-liquid distribution and volume-of-fluid method to simulate particle-scale liquid distribution will be discussed. Finally, a multiscale computational methodology developed to simulate gas–liquid distribution through trays used in packed (or trickle) beds will also be discussed.

Ansys HFSS Best Practices and New Features for Antenna Design
As IoT applications proliferate, the scope of antenna design and integration has significantly broadened. Design engineers and teams must consider the wider implications of a fully integrated system, and not just base the claim of success on the performance of a single system. Design teams often struggle with enormous risk as they must wait for a viable prototype to be built and tested prior to full integration assessment. As this is typically very late in the design stage, it is also a very costly time to expose flaws in the design. This is where “virtual prototyping” comes in to help identify and correct issues early in the design process. During this webinar, you will learn about 2020R1 latest features, our best-known design practices, and a real-world example of how our software is used to model an antenna system. Whether you are new to simulation or an expert Ansys HFSS user, this webinar will be valuable to all.
