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.
Learn how the new Batch Connections in Mechanical enables efficient meshing of large beams and shell structures – significantly faster and with a better quality mesh. This new patent-pending technique replaces the tedious and time-consuming approach using ‘shared topology’.
How can CAE users make the most of the new scripting capabilities available in SpaceClaim 2020R2 to help efficiently automate the generation of new geometry designs? We look at how to create design templates that can automatically generate different designs, simply by modifying a few key parameters.
Acoustic performance is an important part of a product experience, but can often be neglected by design engineers. Learn how to use Ansys VRXPERIENCE Sound to listen to a simulation of your products’ sounds, based on a virtual prototype and CFD/FEA simulation results and/or experimental data.
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.
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.
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…
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…
