Moving towards a Comprehensive Virtual PCB Testing Platform

ANSYS Simulation results for Printed Circuit Boards (PCBs)

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.

Guest Blog by Monash HPR: Optimising rocket motor bulkhead using Ansys Discovery Live

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.

Addressing the complex design challenges of composite parts using ANSYS Composite PrepPost (ACP)

Static Structural analysis results in ANSYS
It is well known that, compared to traditional materials, the fabrication of structures using composite materials offers clear benefits when designing high-performance products that require extreme strength and stiffness, combined with lower weight. However, the use of composite materials also presents additional challenges, as their mechanical properties are heavily influenced by loading direction and their...
