Specialized advanced simulation tools optimize turbochargers for increased power and fuel efficiency.
Profiled on the following pages are seven companies at various stages of maturity, and representing a wide range of industries, that are somewhere on the road to startup success. Some of these businesses have not yet launched a product, while others have shipped to thousands of customers. What their founders have in common is an unwavering belief in their product ideas, as well as a commitment to applying the best available technology to verify and commercialize those ideas.
With high-speed iterations between mechanical and fluids software, fluid structure interaction quickly pinpointed the cause of damaging vibrations and assessed new designs for offshore oil and gas equipment. First, engineers performed a modal analysis with ANSYS Mechanical software, which calculated relatively low first natural frequencies in the range of 15 Hz to 25 Hz. The mode shapes from this analysis indicated that the maximum vibration amplitude would occur in the lower cone of each structure. Next, the engineering team performed a fluid structure interaction (FSI) simulation to study the turbulent flow of exhaust gases through the stack and the resulting pressure fluctuations on the sidewalls.
Analyzing a World Cup stadium with ANSYS multiphysics tools takes one-tenth the time of wind-tunnel testing.
Around the world, oil and gas companies require best-in-class technology to maintain profitabiliy, reliability and safety.
