How to use simulation to ensure switchgear functions to standards such as IEC 61439, incorporating effects such as: short circuit withstand strength, degree of protection of enclosures (arc fault), temperature rise, clearances and creepage distances, Dielectric properties of insulation, electromagnetic compatibility EMC.
This blog offers a detailed overview of the workflow to conduct virtual testing of Electrostatic Discharge using Ansys EMA3D – as early as possible in your design cycle once your PCB design is available – helping to reduce expensive recalls and warranty issues due to ESD failures in sensitive electronics.
The internet is abuzz with excitement about ChatGPT, the new AI chatbot that allows you to interact with one of the world’s largest and most powerful AI models. Recent media coverage has ranged across the spectrum from hype to nope, but at LEAP we wanted to investigate further so we decided to go straight to the source – so we posed a series of questions directly to ChatGPT!
Learn more about improvements in performance, usability, speed and model physics in Ansys 2022 R1 for Structures. Here we look at general FEA highlights and new features of broad interest to our customers plus a 2nd video exploring the new capabilities of the Ansys Noise, Vibration and Harshness (NVH) Toolkit.
Guest post by Daniel Haasbroek, Principal Engineer Structural, thyssenkrupp industrial solutions including the recording of Daniel’s presentation at 2021 Ansys FEA User Group. Daniel has worked at thyssenkrupp for the past 14 years as a structural engineer specialising in balanced machines.
Recently LEAP delivered online training on scripting for Ansys Mechanical which was very well received by our customers. In this post we have made the recordings of these two training sessions available to the wider Ansys community, so if you would like to learn how Ansys Mechanical scripting can help to improve your efficiency, please read on.
Q&A with Douglas Weber-Steinhaus from Ansys to learn about his experiences working with ETNZ in Auckland in the leadup to the 2021 America’s Cup (which starts next week!)
Learn how FEA played an important role in the redesign of Monash Motorsport’s wheel centres for their F-SAE cars – reducing the mass from 906g to 731g for each wheel centre from the 2019 to new 2020 design.
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.
