Watch this video to see how ANSYS Viewer enables various stakeholders - designers, engineers, managers, suppliers, partners and customers - to easily and quickly visualize, interpret and compare ANSYS simulation results, pinpoint issues, suggest improvements, get approvals and make optimal design decisions.
How did the Wright Brothers’ Wright Flyer airplane lift off the ground in 1903? How does a streamlined sports car go faster than a bulky truck? This is due to a physics phenomenon called “drag” or “drag force” where air particles push against the front of objects, slowing them down. From creating airplane simulations to modeling race cars, Ansys simulation technology is used worldwide to understand drag and create very cool products. Watch this fun video — ideal for grade schoolers (K – 7th grade) — to discover how drag works.
CalSol, the UC Berkeley solar vehicle team, used ANSYS fluid dynamics software extensively to determine the optimal shape for their most-recent one-seater, challenger-class solar vehicle called Zephyr. Fluid dynamics simulation performed on the outer carbon fiber shell of the car allowed the team to create the most aerodynamic shape within design specifications and constraints, which include solar cell placement and optimal cells curvature, and dimensional requirements.
The Galway energy-efficient car (better known as the Geec) is a battery-powered electric eco-car designed and built by engineering students from National University of Ireland Galway to complete in the Shell Eco-marathon Europe. The team used ANSYS computational fluid dynamics to minimize aerodynamic drag, which accounts for about one-third of all energy consumption in a highly optimized car.
Commercial companies, research institutes and academic organizations are actively pursuing goals related to reducing power consumption, decreasing emissions and creating new methods to utilize existing energy resources. At the same time, engineering students around the world are honing their skills and developing new vehicles, often as part of team competitions, that use the latest technology to transform our method of travel. These students create solutions to real-world problems, and will become the next generation of workplace leaders to engineer energy innovation.
Simulation has long been used to improve the design of nearly every physical product or process by providing the opportunity to evaluate a wide range of alternative designs prior to building physical prototypes. Simulation has also long been used to model different operating scenarios to develop control strategies that are incorporated into control algorithms to improve operations. The emergence of the Internet of Things (IoT) has created the potential
for a transformational journey in which a simulation model of the product or process is tied through the Internet to sensors capturing data and to actuators controlling its operation. The result is a so-called digital twin of the physical product or process that can be used to analyze and diagnose its operation and optimize its performance and maintenance in real time. By using simulation in conjunction with the IoT, companies can analyze the performance of
products in real-world operating conditions and make confident predictions about future performance to improve product operation and productivity, and to reduce the cost and risk of unplanned downtime.
