Numerical Simulation of Blood Flow in Flexible Arteries Using Fluid-Structure Interaction

Numerical Simulation of Blood Flow in Flexible Arteries Using Fluid-Structure Interaction | Applying Finite Element Analysis and Computational Fluid Dynamics | Scoop.it

The increasing accuracy requirements in many of today’s simulation tasks in science and engineering more and more often involve the need to take into account more than one physical effect. Among the most important, with respect to both modeling and computational issues, and most challenging of such multiphysics problems are fluid-structure interactions (FSI), i.e. interactions of some movable or deformable elastic structure with an internal or surrounding fluid flow.

CFD: Shaping the Medical World by Desktop Engineering

CFD: Shaping the Medical World by Desktop Engineering | Applying Finite Element Analysis and Computational Fluid Dynamics | Scoop.it

When fluids are involved, simulating the function of many medical implants, surgical techniques, diagnostic systems and test stations can be an extreme challenge. It takes fine-tuned software to help engineers understand even the basic flow of air, blood or a liquid chemical--and for medical applications, the margins for design safety are extra-tight. What makes computational fluid dynamics (CFD) analysis such a useful tool when working in this field?

When Two Plus Two Makes More Than Four by Desktop Engineering

When Two Plus Two Makes More Than Four by Desktop Engineering | Applying Finite Element Analysis and Computational Fluid Dynamics | Scoop.it

Just when you thought you had multiphysics (MP) analysis figured out, you got put on a project that involves collaboration across multiple disciplines—mechanical, electrical and maybe even optical. Accessing the right simulation software, tracking all possible input data, combining analysis results and connecting with databases across teams and vendors could really stress you out. The good news is that traditional simulation packages are being extended—not only to help different disciplines work with the same models, but also to share the results across higher level collaborations.

The Florence TAV railway station: Extraordinary Design

The Florence TAV railway station: Extraordinary Design | Applying Finite Element Analysis and Computational Fluid Dynamics | Scoop.it

Austrian firm NInsight has developed a leading reputation for helping architectural engineers conduct research, analyses and simulations that verify building designs before significant funds are invested in construction. Founded in 1992, NInsight studies and modifies architectural designs and building materials in a virtual environment with the aid of software from ANSYS.

Simulating for an Edge by Desktop Engineering

Simulating for an Edge by Desktop Engineering | Applying Finite Element Analysis and Computational Fluid Dynamics | Scoop.it

The teams of the 32nd America's Cup are composed of the best sailors, designers, sailmakers, nautical engineers, and boat builders in the world. The top teams will expend more than 150,000 man-hours to optimize the design of their boats for the most famous and most prestigious regatta in the sport of sailing. All of the leading teams are using computer simulation to determine power generated by sails, drag produced by boat hulls and keels, and air resistance on deck. Four of the top teams, defending champs Alinghi, Emirates Team New Zealand, BMW ORACLE Racing, and Shosholoza are using computational fluid dynamics (CFD) software from ANSYS, Inc. to predict the effects that design alternatives down to the smallest details have on yacht performance.

CFD Helps Ferrari Race to Victory by Desktop Engineering

CFD Helps Ferrari Race to Victory by Desktop Engineering | Applying Finite Element Analysis and Computational Fluid Dynamics | Scoop.it

Auto racing R&D never stops. From each physical experience, you learn something that will help you improve your design for the next season, and the seasons after that. Deadlines are tight. You need to go with a design straight to a physical event. And that means your simulations must be as fast, accurate and true to your target as possible.

Engineering seafloor oil and gas processing benefits from simulation

Engineering seafloor oil and gas processing benefits from simulation | Applying Finite Element Analysis and Computational Fluid Dynamics | Scoop.it

Advances in equipment and technology contribute to making it possible to produce more oil from old fields and deepwater reservoirs and to reducing the associated financial risk. Project success may depend on improving resource recovery as well as managing cost and reliability of processing, separation, and flow-control equipment. To process continuous flows of oil, water, gas, and sand at dynamic operating conditions, equipment must operate reliability in harsh environments with minimal human intervention and limited or no interruption. At the same time, there is increased emphasis on risk assessment for safety, equipment reliability, environmental impact, and regulatory compliance for offshore operations including produced water management.

Finite Element Analysis Sails into the Mainstream

Finite Element Analysis Sails into the Mainstream | Applying Finite Element Analysis and Computational Fluid Dynamics | Scoop.it

Long the domain of engineering specialists, finite element analysis software is reaching a wider audience as the tools become easier to use and more accessible to non-expert users. Improvements in FEA software, coupled with the faster multicore processors available today, also make it feasible to run these highly complex compute-intensive simulations on an ordinary desktop or laptop computer.
