A working example of a Simulation-enabled Digital Twin

Is your company developing a Digital Twin strategy? LEAP’s engineers have created working examples of a Simulation-based Digital Twin in action – a real-time, virtual replica of your equipment constantly updated through IoT data that provides you with:
– insight into real-time performance using extra Virtual Sensor outputs
– data to assess machine health & identify possible failure conditions
– actionable data to enable predictive maintenance & avoid costly downtime.

Breakthrough in accurate load mapping for bulk materials applications: DEM – FEA Coupling with ROCKY 3.0 and ANSYS (Part 1)

Today we present a new and easy way to transfer loads from DEM simulations (ROCKY version 3.0 released September 2014) to ANSYS using External Data coupling in ANSYS Workbench. Discrete Element Method and ROCKY The Discrete Element Method (DEM) is a computational technique originally developed in the 1970s that has gained great popularity in recent…

An Overview of Methods for Modelling Bolts in ANSYS

Bolted joints are commonly used to assemble mechanical structures. Modelling bolts for three-dimensional finite element applications has always been a tricky proposition because the details of bolt geometric features usually result in large model size and high computational cost. Therefore, efficient methods to model bolts are always desirable.   The approach to modelling bolts usually…
