In this case study, a power generation business deployed ANSYS Reliability Engineering Services to develop a proper method for validating new equipment from suppliers.
Experimentation with aircraft in harsh environmental conditions can be difficult and expensive. The cost of materials, manufacturing limitations, physical limitations (size/temperature) and data gathering limitations are all issues that can be bypassed through the use of engineering simulation.
IRSI designs, operates and manufactures pyrolysis equipment that produces biochar from residual biomass. To optimize the pyrolysis system, the company uses ANSYS Fluent to simulate the thermal decomposition of the biomass under variable operating conditions.
When confronted with increasing product complexity and the need to stay competitive in the fast-paced and highly regulated healthcare products market, Oticon made the strategic choice to democratize the use of simulation across its organization. As a result, 75 percent of the work traditionally done by experts is now delegated to designers, freeing the time of engineers to quickly create more innovative and reliable products.
WISPs competing to provide internet service to underserved areas in rural Brazil face the challenge of building towers quickly and putting them into operation so they can sign up customers before competitors enter the market. Design, construction, shipment and installation of a typical 45-meter wireless tower normally takes about five weeks. We used ANSYS AIM to optimize the design of a modular line of towers that can be shipped and assembled in only one week.
With the biopharmaceuticals industry facing patent expirations and increasing competition, now more than ever processing equipment designs, such as mixing tanks, need to be developed quickly and efficiently, and work correctly the first time. Having the right software and hardware approach helps engineers complete designs faster in a cost-efficient manner.
