Insertion Force of a Snap-Fit Connector
Snap-fit connectors are one of the oldest and most common fastener devices. They have the advantages of speed of connection/disconnection over other fastening methods, with no loose parts that could be misplaced. However, their proper operation requires precise design to ensure that the amount of force it takes to fasten or separate the connector, and the direction of application of that force, is optimal for the desired application. Join us for this 30-minute webinar to see the how insertion force of a snap-fit connector can be quickly calculated using simulation from Ansys. Learn how to determine what type of snap-fit to use, the required insertion force for operation and the amount of stress that various parts of the connector will experience.
Fluid Flow from Blood Vessels Scans
Information about blood pressure and flow through blood vessels is valuable to doctors working to improve patient health, and to medical device manufacturers looking to improve their product designs. Simulation is one way to gain deep insight about hemodynamic effects. However, a simulation must be performed for each individual patient to be truly effective. Blood vessels are tortuous and irregularly shaped, making them nearly impossible to draw using CAD methods. As a result, medical scanning techniques the result in STL files are the usual source of simulation geometry. Join us for a 20-minute webinar to see how simulation software makes it easy to go from raw STL geometry to blood flow analysis using Ansys solutions.
Evaluating Fatigue on a Bicycle Frame
Biking enthusiasts want bicycles that are durable enough to withstand their pursuits while being light enough to transport easily. Bike manufacturers want to meet customer expectations while minimizing material and transportation costs. Bicycle designers have a multitude of options for bike frame configuration, material type and material thickness to choose from to design bicycles that best address both consumer and business needs. Join us for this 20-minute webinar to see how simulation from ANSYS can make evaluating these options virtually fast and easy. Learn how you can simulate fatigue on bicycle frames to see how well and how long they will withstand the stresses riders will place on them before you ever build a physical prototype. You can save time and money on future bicycle designs, and get your product to the market faster than ever before.

Calculating Force in a Relay
Relays are electrically operated switches. They use a DC electric current to create a magnetic force and move an armature that makes or breaks the electrical connection. Relay designers are interested in the current density in the coil, the magnetic flux density in the iron components and the magnetic force in the armature. Ansys electromagnetics solutions can simulate these properties to give you insight into your innovative relay designs. Join us for this 20-minute webinar to see how Ansys simulation can make calculating the force in a relay fast and easy.
Ansys DesignXplorer GARS Algorithm for Response Surfaces
Choosing the right response surface method is an obstacle for many novice simulation users; it is critical to success with Ansys DesignXplorer. Without an accurate fit across all the outputs, the response surface is not able to accurately give sensitivity information or predict the best design candidates. The Genetic Aggregation Response Surface (GARS) algorithm automates this process and also produces the best fit possible. And it’s so easy to use, we can show you how in one 20-minute session.
Ansys Icepak 19 Product Update
Electronic devices today contain many more components within a much smaller form factor than ever before.
