Monash HPR (High Powered Rocketry) is a student team dedicated to the design and construction of high-powered rockets to compete in the 10,000 ft and 30,000 ft categories of AURC. Read about how their use of Ansys simulation delivered 85-92% weight reduction during the design and optimisation of their rocket motor bulkheads.
Learn how FE simulation has allowed Micro-X to undertake more rapid development of their mobile x-ray carts which are being used to help diagnose COVID-19 disease.
Do you need to simulate short-duration, transient events such as impacts, crashes, blasts or drop tests? Learn more about simulating these challenging engineering problems with Explicit Dynamics simulation with Ansys LS-DYNA and Autodyn.
We recently sat down for a quick interview with Peter Brand, Specialist Application Engineer at LEAP to find out more about his experiences from showcasing SpaceClaim to a range of engineers from different industries across Australia & New Zealand.
Trends such as such as Industry 4.0, the Internet of Things (IoT), drones, smart home technology and autonomous vehicles are continuing to push PCB technology to its limits. Electronics engineers are now needing to focus on more than just the electromagnetics aspects of PCB design, and are increasingly concerned about power consumption, thermal & vibration issues linked to reliability concerns in harsh environments.
The introduction of parallel part-by-part meshing to ANSYS Mechanical 15 back in 2013 was revolutionary. Structures which took hours to mesh now wrapped up in minutes, unfortunately removing one of our favourite excuses for taking a tactical nap. One of the limitations to this new feature was the fact that Multibody parts were still meshed…
Utilising the new FREE topology optimisation ACT-extension, one can explore new innovative ways to reduce mass that were not available before. The DoE (Design of Experiments) approach may not be feasible if the design’s shape is not yet defined, while creating CAD models to capture all the potential design possibilities may be impossible. Now imagine starting with an arbitrary volume and…
