5 Best Practices for Gas Turbine Combustion Meshing Using Ansys Fluent
Combustors are complex geometries that have detailed features including fuel atomizers, swirlers, effusion and dilution orifices. Because of the complex nature of the combustor, the meshing process can result in long turnaround times and high costs. Ansys Fluent accelerates the meshing of large, complex geometries, like those of combustors, giving users complete control to generate a high-quality mesh that will yield robust, accurate results. This paper discusses the five best practices for meshing gas turbine combustion processes using Ansys Fluent’s patent pending mosaic meshing, which produces a hexahedral dominant mesh in the core and mosaic polyhedral cells that extend to the inflation layers of the wall. These best practices involve: 1. Watertight Geometry Workflow 2. Mosaic Poly-Hexcore Meshing with Parallel Scalability 3. Inflation Layers 4. Mesh Resolution Per Part 5. Target quality metrics
Amplifying the Benefits of Acoustic Simulation
The sound of a product will directly affect the user experience, making acoustic engineering a hot topic ― especially for transportation and consumer goods companies. Sound can be pleasant or unpleasant, a product benefit or an annoyance. It can also create a strong emotion and reinforce the brand identity of a product. But it can be difficult to quantify and predict the quality of a product’s sound in advance. Today, Ansys VRXPERIENCE Sound offers designers the powerful capability to listen to a simulation of their products’ sounds, based on a virtual prototype.
Ansys SCADE: Accelerating the Development of Automated Driving Technologies
Ansys SCADE software solutions support an efficient, model-based process for designing and verifying software at the very earliest stages of automated driving development.
All You Need to Know About Hardware for Simulation
Engineering simulation needs all the computer power it can get — and more. FEA and CFD users have complex problems with millions of elements, and generative design — built on simulation — will run simulations many times for each of the thousand solutions it generates. Most engineers are still trying to do all this on ageing workstations. What should you look for in a new workstation? We examine processors, CPUs and GPUs, memory and the latest storage technology. But will even the fastest workstation be enough? Many users find high-performance computing (HPC) to be the next logical step after exhausting the capabilities of workstations. HPC provides surprisingly quick solutions, allowing users to do more simulation iterations as well as more complex simulations. This report discusses introductory level HPCs and what you can expect. We also researched getting HPC as a service, which allows users to draw from an almost limitless amount of computer power that is not only affordable by consultants and small firms, but is also as easy to access as signing up for an account. In this report, we examine the options available for engineering hardware for simulation: The state of the art in engineering workstations. When do you need to jump to HPC? How much faster is HPC over workstations? What to look for in HPC hardware. Affordability of HPC. Is it better to rent HPC when you need it?
Ansys 5G Antenna Solutions
Designing 5G wireless systems is a huge undertaking. Antenna beamforming and beamsteering in 5G are key to improve the capacity and data rates for wireless applications. Massive MIMO, for instance, requires phased array antennas to be designed carefully to optimize the gain and ensure targeted coverage. Ansys tools are ideal for designing and simulating antennas, antenna-to-antenna coupling and environmental effects on signal propagation. Ansys solutions can enable successful deployment of V2X and V2V systems to improve the safety of self-driving cars that are expected to hit the road in 5G. Read this whitepaper to learn more.
