ANSYS multiphysics software enables engineers to design new airships 40 percent faster than for the previous generation.
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.
Relativity Space was founded in 2015 with a unique vision: to leverage additive manufacturing technology to 3D-print rockets that can be launched into space. This ambitious California-based startup is poised to change the global aerospace industry by making rockets exponentially faster, cheaper and simpler to produce. Already on its way to rewriting the rules for commercial satellite launches, Relativity hopes to eventually manufacture its 3D-printed rockets on Mars — where this innovative, affordable technology could be used to support human colonization.
Cloud computing reduces by 80 percent the time required for a coupled CFD and structural simulation.
Fluid flow simulation that predicts ice formation on aircraft can help maintain safety, reduce test costs and decrease weight.
Known for game-changing product innovations, Pratt & Whitney has relied on engineering simulation to fuel its design process for over 35 years. Al Brockett, former vice president of engineering module centers, discusses the role of robust design in delivering revolutionary new products with a high degree of confidence.
