Learn in about 4 minutes how ANSYS 17.0 and modern hardware can speed up your time to insight significantly.
Material Designer is an ANSYS tool for the homogenization of microstructures, enabling you to model and analyze composite materials at a microscale to obtain homogeneous properties. Using a woven fabric draped over a dome-shaped structure as an example, this video demonstrates how to use Material Designer along with ANSYS Composite PrepPost to determine variable material properties as a function of shear angle.
While fiber-reinforced composite materials add strength to a component while reducing its weight, problems with differential cooling of the fiber and matrix can lead to residual stresses and strains, resulting in deformation. ANSYS Composite Cure Simulation (ACCS) software combines the thermal and structural simulation capabilities of ANSYS Mechanical with a chemical solver to solve curing problems throughout the process. The chemical solver’s embedded transient thermal system simulates the development of polymerization, the transition temperature, and internal heat generated by exothermal crosslinking reactions to ensure that the final component has the desired size and shape with no deformation.
Structural integrity is one of the most critical considerations in product design. Market pressures dictate that products are stronger, longer lasting and packed with customer-requested features. At the same time, the bottom line must drive time, costs and risk out of the product development cycle while creating ongoing innovations. By leveraging ANSYS software, engineering teams can simulate all structural aspects of a product — conducting linear static analyses that reveal stresses or deformations, modal analyses that determine vibration characteristics, and advanced transient nonlinear studies that focus on dynamic effects and complex behaviors.
In this webinar, we will demonstrate a multiphysics simulation for crack propagation analysis. You will learn how a multiphysics workflow in Ansys Workbench — integrated with Ansys Mechanical and Ansys Fluent — can be established for this purpose. Our SMART (separating morphing and adaptive remeshing technology) crack growth capability will be employed to analyze crack growth due to thermo-mechanical fatigue (TMF).
The webinar will take you through an illustrative workflow using a turbocharger application to explain:
Fluid mechanics analysis (for the determination of temperature and pressure distribution on surfaces)
Thermal analysis (for the calculation of full temperature fields)
Stress analysis (for the delivery of full displacement and stress fields and to find the most highly stressed areas)
SMART crack growth analysis (for determination of fracture parameters, crack path and component lifetime after crack initiation)
Because the world population is aging, chronic diseases are on the rise and healthcare costs are reaching unsustainable heights, it is essential to detect pathologies early. The Internet of Things (IoT) is now poised to transform the healthcare industry by providing wireless connectivity and sensing. Body-worn electronics and implanted devices, equipped with tiny sensors that continuously monitor vital parameters and securely report anomalies to appropriate physicians, will improve patients’ quality of life while delivering timely medical help.
