A CFD Approach for Design and Development in Oil & Gas Industry

A CFD Approach for Design and Development in Oil & Gas Industry | CAE Analysis | Scoop.it

Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) is as such not a simple but a complex tool that can be utilized for wide range of industrial applications. As accuracies in this approach continue to increase, physical tests are likely to reduce, as only one validation test will be required to compare the model accuracy.

Simulating Dynamic Response of a Structure with Fasteners in FEA

Simulating Dynamic Response of a Structure with Fasteners in FEA | CAE Analysis | Scoop.it

It is often difficult to simulate the dynamic response of structure consisting of number of screws or bolts, since it is expensive to represent every single hardware items in the simulation. It not only consumes time in setting up the simulation, but also eats up the computational time significantly.

Adopt Shell Mesh Approach for Thin Walled Parts FEA for Speed and Accuracy

Adopt Shell Mesh Approach for Thin Walled Parts FEA for Speed and Accuracy | CAE Analysis | Scoop.it
It is pretty much common to find companies trusting on solid-mesh simulations even when the geometry is thin-walled, like in the case of sheet metal or plastic parts. The common reason why analysts avoid using shell mesh for such cases is due to a common misconception that it will take too much time.

How CFD Simulation Is Helping Preserve a Precious Resource: Our Food

How CFD Simulation Is Helping Preserve a Precious Resource: Our Food | CAE Analysis | Scoop.it
The global population is estimated to reach or exceed 9 billion by 2050, which will put a tremendous strain on the world's food supplies. With present agriculture technologies, it seems nearly impossible to avail arable land to meet growing food demands. It is inevitable, then, to imagine a situation of social chaos if no effective plan to feed the world is developed. One solution to counteract the challenge of availing arable land for farming was envisioned by ecologist Dickson Despommier, through a concept called the Vertical Farm, which emerged in 1999 at Columbia University, promoting mass cultivation of plants in the form of skyscrapers.

How Trustworthy Are the Results Obtained Through FEA?

How Trustworthy Are the Results Obtained Through FEA? | CAE Analysis | Scoop.it

Finite element analysis has always been used as a third dimension in product testing apart from experimental and analytical tests. The reason why FEA alone is not employed as a standard testing tool is primarily because it is an approximation of the partial differential equations and often consists of residuals that always keep the results from being 100% accurate.

Can Simulation Tools Replace Physical Tests Completely?

Can Simulation Tools Replace Physical Tests Completely? | CAE Analysis | Scoop.it
It’s been long that simulation has become mainstream and an important product testing tool for manufacturers. With lot of perks to offer, computer aided engineering is now an integral part of the product design process for engineers. Simulation has helped manufacturers in bringing down the product development time and associated costs dramatically. It is a tool that helps predict flaws in the design early as well as provide engineers the room to implement innovative ideas directly on virtual product model. At present, simulation tools are capable enough to predict the product behavior with good amount of accuracy, provided that all the boundary conditions are applied carefully. As these tools become more advanced in the coming years, there remains a vital question on the usage of physical tests that are considered at present as a gold standard and a means to validate simulation results. Can simulation tools replace physical tests completely in future? Would it be possible that these tools will mature enough to understand and respond to any real world conditions accurately?
