Contact Enhancements in ANSYS Mechanical and MAPDL 15.0

Contact technology is used extensively throughout ANSYS Mechanical and Mechanical APDL to enforce compatible behavior between different portions within a model. With each release, ANSYS improves the breadth and robustness of our contact technology. In ANSYS 15.0 some existing contact capabilities, such as trim contact and bolt pretension, have been enhanced. In addition, new technology was introduced to improve compression-only supports and to simplify bolt thread modeling. These enhancements enable more robust implementation of contact technology in Mechanical and Mechanical APDL models.

This webinar explains the ANSYS 15.0 contact enhancements. It highlights the advantages and applications of these new technologies.

Wind Farm Flow Modeling: Including Atmospheric Stability

Wind farm site assessments have traditionally ignored the effect of atmospheric stability on wind power predictions. However, as commercial pressures push developers to consider more difficult sites where atmospheric stability can have a strong influence on the flow, it is becoming increasingly clear that including stability can significantly increase the accuracy of the assessments and estimates of the Return On Investment (ROI). This webinar considers:

  • • What is atmospheric stability and how does it affect the flow over a wind farm site;
  • • How atmospheric stability can be studied using CFD;
  • • What data is needed to include stability in a model; and
  • • What are the benefits from including atmospheric stability.

These aspects are illustrated by results from real projects using WindModeller, and include:
  • • The role of free stream stability and how it affects the boundary layer development;
  • • The effect of ground heating and cooling, including diurnal and seasonal variations;
  • • Wake effects;
  • • The effects of terrain, especially away from hill tops; and
  • • How stability influences wind shear and turbine selection.

Developing the Transition Flying Car: Using Physics Based Simulation to Design Air-Worth Composite Structures

In this 1-hour presentation Terrafugia will discuss the design process for the composite structure of the air frame for their Transition “flying car”, and the role and benefits of physics-based simulation. The Transition is Terrafugia’s proof-of-concept vehicle and has been flying and driving for the past two years. Developing a practical vehicle that simultaneously satisfies road and aircraft regulations to become a true "flying car" presents significant engineering challenges. Yet this is what the team at Terrafugia has achieved with the Transition. The next generation prototype is currently in development with the aid of simulation packages to allow for rapid design iteration before performing required physical tests.

Optimization in Electronics Thermal Management using ANSYS Icepak and ANSYS DesignXplorer

With rapid advancements in technology, design engineers are under constant pressure to respond to changing market demands for innovative products with optimized performance. Over the years, leading companies have relied on ANSYS Icepak to provide thermal management solutions for their electronic devices. Icepak’s optimization feature is frequently used to arrive at the best design point for an objective function. The best design point is often the result of a trade-off between various objectives. Hence, it is important to gather enough information about the current design so as to be able to quantify the influence of design variables on the performance of the product in an exhaustive manner. This information should help design engineers to take right decision, even in the event of an unexpected change in the design constraints.

In 15.0, ANSYS Icepak can be linked to ANSYS DesignXplorer (DX) within the ANSYS Workbench framework. ANSYS DesignXplorer significantly enhances the ability of an ANSYS Icepak user to gather comprehensive insight into a given design space. It applies the design of experiment (DOE) algorithms to efficiently and scientifically factor the design space. It uses state-of-art response surface technology to interpolate results and calculate result sensitivity for a given set of input variables.

This webinar will provide an overview of the Icepak-DX workflow discussing the publishing of Icepak parameters into Workbench, running goal driven optimization, analyzing the response surface and performing sensitivity studies.

Advanced Solution for Electrical Machine Design

Electric machines are being used in more and novel applications through the world driven by the need for greater power efficiency in the transportation, aerospace and defense and industrial automation markets. The automotive sector focus is driven by the need for Hybrid and Electric vehicle technology to meet ever stringent miles-per-gallon standards. The aerospace and defense is focused replacing existing power transfer technologies in an aircraft such as the central hydraulic system, with fault-tolerant electric power, where major subsystems such as engine starting, primary flight control actuation, pumps and braking would be controlled and driven electronically.

Several calculation techniques are available to predict electric machine performance, including classical closed form analytical analysis, lumped parameter models based on the determination of detailed parameters from finite element analysis, and nonlinear time-domain finite element analysis.

Success in using any simulation software is the usability of the software. Ease of use plays a significant role in speeding time to market because software that is difficult to use or requires in-depth knowledge of numerical simulation techniques will quickly be discarded by engineers. Being quick to market requires simulation software that is accurate and is suitable for use throughout an organization at different stages of the design process by engineers with various levels of knowledge in numerical simulation.

The ANSYS electric machine design solution is unique in the market:
• Employs the most efficient numerical techniques
• Provides highly accurate, comprehensive multiphysics simulation design of an electric machine
• Includes distributed parametric analysis and HPC for robust design
• Enables power electronics and embedded control software to be simulated with a detailed finite element model
