One of the biggest challenges in designing reciprocating compressors is understanding the complex operation of reed valves that open and close as they deform under loads generated by fluid flowing through the compressor. Tecumseh engineers used ANSYS multiphysics capabilities to design a new compressor that consumes less power and produces less noise in under half the time required to design the previous product.
Affiliation with ANSYS helps the University of Waterloo Formula Motorsports team win an award for an innovative air intake design at the Formula SAE Michigan 2009 competition.
Achates Power has developed a radically improved two-stroke opposed-piston internal combustion engine that increases fuel efficiency and reduces greenhouse gas emissions. ANSYS simulation tools help the company to shorten design iteration time, minimize hardware prototypes and reduce the development time of new engines by approximately one year.
Ural Diesel-Motor Works uses multiphysics simulation to avoid thermal cracking in a cylinder head.
Countries around the world increasingly rely on renewable energy technologies for electricity. Brazilian company WEG is a leader in design and production of electric machines including those for renewable energy which requires overcoming a wide range of engineering challenges. WEG Energy leverages the broad portfolio of ANSYS solutions across all aspects of product design, throughout the design process and even during product operation.
Students from Canada design a solar car to participate in a grueling 3,000-kilometer timed race.
