Climeworks is the creator of the first commercially available carbon capture technology. Its CO2 collector system captures, filters and concentrates the gas, which can then be used by greenhouses, the food and beverage industry and manufacturers of renewable products. To design and optimize the system, Climeworks uses computational fluid dynamics and structural simulation obtained through the Ansys Startup Program.

Multiple simulation capabilities all support the design and manufacturing of a fuel tank. Manufacturing (simulated using ANSYS Polyflow) followed by one way transient FSI (Fluent and Mechanical) for the sloshing process. Also highlighted at the end is crash of the fuel tank.
Adriano Henney, Secretary General from Avicenna Alliance discusses the challenges and the dynamics of interaction of the complex networks in the healthcare industry that not just underpin normal function but how that function can go wrong in disease. By using simulation software it is a recognition that there are many decision points and many activities that are involved that can vastly improve medical procedure for the development of in silico trials.
The performance of bleed-air or electro-thermal ice protection systems (IPS) can be studied with FENSAP-ICE through the conjugate heat transfer (CHT) between air, water, ice and the solid materials that compose the IPS. The airflow domains are separated from the metal or composite skin of the aircraft component;, therefore, all the ANSYS airflow solvers can be used. For bleed-air systems, a steady-state thermal equilibrium between domains is computed to verify that the protected region is free of ice. For electro-thermal systems, the IPS response time to the cyclic activation of heater pads is analyzed in a time-dependent CHT simulation encompassing phase change, heat conduction and water runback to accurately predict the amount of ice that forms, melts and refreezes. A wide variety of IPS configurations can be analyzed.
This video shows Harmonic Analysis in ANSYS CFX solving multistage transient blade row problems by calculating as few as one blade per row, reducing computational time by a factor of 100 compared to a full wheel solution and by a factor of 25 compared to the Fourier Transform method.
