By leveraging simulation like Ansys SCADE and Ansys VRXPERIENCE to engineer new marvels like the cockpit of the future, aerospace engineering teams can enjoy the best of both worlds: extreme innovation, combined with extreme accuracy, speed and product confidence. VRXPERIENCE provides a comprehensive evaluation of all the human-machine interfaces in the next-generation cockpit while SCADE generates the software that makes it a reality.
Every airplane passenger who has ever sat next to the wing in rough air has surely noticed how much deflection it can undergo, and has likely hoped that the wing bending tests have been thoroughly performed! The truth is that these tests go far beyond what the passenger will ever see. Wing reliability under extreme loading conditions is tested with deflections of over 5 meters between the utmost downward and upward positions of the cycle. Similarly, the fuselage is pressurized during testing to levels that would never be encountered in normal operating conditions.
Engineering teams are challenged to increase asset operational availability to meet increasing mission capable rate targets and accelerate modernization to deliver more advanced capability to warfighters faster. And leaders must be cost-informed across the entire asset lifecycle while simultaneously addressing a growing personnel skills gap.
Simulation has long been used to improve the design of nearly every physical product or process by providing the opportunity to evaluate a wide range of alternative designs prior to building physical prototypes. Simulation has also long been used to model different operating scenarios to develop control strategies that are incorporated into control algorithms to improve operations.
This eBook by Aberdeen Group illustrates that Best-in-Class companies approach development in a holistic manner, ultimately leading to a product that meets its intentions, quality, and revenue targets.
Rising operational costs and the need to generate revenue from existing assets are driving the digital transformation of MRO operations.
Ansys helps customers accelerate this transformation through the deployment of platform-agnostic, physics-based digital twins.
These virtual copies of real-world assets deliver previously unavailable performance insights that facilitate predictive and prescriptive maintenance and maximize cost savings.
Designing products, components, and systems that can withstand a wide range of thermal scenarios is a design challenge that touches nearly every industry. From automobiles to high-speed semiconductors, thermal management concerns can often lead to wasted energy, reduced performance or premature device failure. This results in increased energy costs, warranty issues, and additional design time that can reduce the competitive advantage. To master thermal management design and truly understand the thermal behavior of a system, streamlined multiphysics simulation tools are a necessity.
Gaining a deep understanding of how products work is critical for producing right-the-first-time prototypes and winning the race to market. Often, this insight requires simulating all the physics impacting your product — and the interactions between them — all at the same time.
