By devising a new computational method that tracks the flow of therapeutic drug particles in an aerosol from the lips to the lungs, researchers can deposit a drug on a targeted lung tumor with 90 percent efficiency. This is a major improvement over the 20 percent efficiency of conventional aerosol treatment methods. One key to the success of this new computational method is the development of a human digital twin that can be made patient-specific using the real geometry of the patient’s lungs..
It costs hundreds of millions or even billions of dollars to launch a satellite into a geosynchronous orbit where it hovers above a point on earth for observation or communications. Now, World View’s balloon-borne Stratollite vehicles can carry large payloads to altitudes up to 95,000 feet and park them there for weeks or months at a cost orders of magnitude less than a satellite or other comparable technologies. World View engineers saved an estimated eight months and about $600,000 by using ANSYS simulation software to determine the right design before building and testing a prototype.
JVC KENWOOD Corporation employs robust design practices to develop innovative automotive speaker technology.
Keeping a smartphone from overheating is becoming more challenging as increasing numbers of transistors and devices are made to fit into a small, sleek design. Qualcomm engineers have developed a way to use simulation to create a smaller model of the power sources in a smartphone. This model can be solved in a fraction of the time of a full thermal analysis, so that they can look at more operating scenarios. The goal is to create a dynamic power management strategy to selectively direct power where it is needed and keep temperatures down.
Radio frequency identification (RFID) tags provide a superior level of inventory management, asset tracking and supply chain management over barcode technology, which requires barcodes to be within sight of the reader. RFID technology can be more broadly applied and becomes increasingly accurate by boosting the range at which tags can be read. Engineers at Honeywell leveraged ANSYS HFSS electromagnetic field simulation software to improve upon current RFID systems. Using HFSS, they were able to virtually evaluate new concepts in less time, significantly reducing product development lead time.
As organizations strive to deliver innovative smart products for the digital economy they must solve a huge number of design challenges and determine appropriate trade-offs. The only practical way to do this is through engineering simulation.
