Around the world, oil and gas companies require best-in-class technology to maintain profitabiliy, reliability and safety.
All-electric aircraft are on the horizon. Engineers at magniX employ multiphysics simulation to develop powerful electric motors for propeller planes that could revolutionize the short-haul and middle-mile flight industry, making it more economical and convenient to take a 30-minute flight rather than a 2 ½-hour drive and a 1 ½-hour flight instead of an 8-hour drive.
Electronics are pervasive in our world today. From electric machines to high-speed electronic devices to antennas and wireless communication, the demand continues to grow. However, designing innovative products to work reliably in the real world becomes more difficult with the need to reduce energy consumption, avoid interference with other devices and decrease development time. Leading companies leverage engineering simulation to quickly bring to market pioneering products that meet and exceed expectations.
By designing a tree-like wind power generator with steel branches and plastic leaves, New Wind has created an aesthetically pleasing alternative energy source for urban environments, bringing energy generation closer to people.
Nuclear fusion, the process that generates the sun’s heat, has the potential to generate virtually unlimited amounts of clean, safe energy on earth. Although fusion power has long been pursued, the benefits of developing a reliable system to generate this energy is well worth the effort. French Atomic Energy Commission engineers are using ANSYS software to overcome the difficult challenges involved in protecting fusion reactor components from operating temperatures of about 150 million degrees. ANSYS electromagnetic and structural simulations are leveraged to design components to withstand enormous thermal loads; ANSYS fluid dynamics software is applied to cooling system design; and optical simulation is used to calibrate infrared temperature measurement systems so that engineers can accurately distinguish bright spots caused by direct heat flux from heat flux merely caused by reflections.
Recent technology developments from ANSYS help aerospace engineers address pressing engineering challenges.
