CONSTRUCTION-INDUSTRY-WEBCAST-SERIES

In the architecture engineering and construction (AEC) industry, there is no prototype: The cost and time required for construction is such that the first prototype is usually the final building. So it is not surprising that this industry widely embraces virtual prototyping through engineering simulation to troubleshoot and optimize any project. Once dedicated to the structural stability and integrity of the construction, new models are now considering the entire spectrum:

Cavitation: A Critical CFD App You Have to Get Right – Application Brief

Cavitation is the formation of vapor bubbles within a liquid when flow dynamics cause the local static pressure to drop below the vapor pressure. The bubbles usually last a short time, collapsing when they encounter higher pressure. Cavitation can cause noise and vibration, structural wear and damage, leading to reduced performance. It is a common problem in pumps (especially centrifugal or positive displacement pumps), compressors, hydraulic turbines, propellers, fuel injectors and other fluid devices subjected to high variations in pressure..

Overset Mesh Can Simplify and Speed Simulations with Moving Parts – Application Brief

A common difficulty in simulating complex fluid flow problems is that some geometries can not be well-represented using a single, contiguous mesh. In many cases, different geometrical features are best represented by different mesh types. Preparing this mesh can be time consuming and complicated. Additionally, the large, poorly structured meshes that result can take excessive time to solve and can result in reduced accuracy.

Fit for a King – Article – Ansys Advantage – V10 I3

Designing the climate control system for the reconstruction of the historic Berlin City Palace required meeting many, often conflicting, requirements for energy conservation, human comfort, artistic preservation and cost. ILK Dresden engineers used ANSYS Fluent simulation to guide the development of a design that matches all of these objectives.

Turn Up the Heat in a Rooftop Heating Unit – Article – Ansys Advantage – V12 I1

In designing a new rooftop heating unit, AAON engineers needed to deliver higher airflow while maintaining the same footprint as an earlier design. The team used Ansys computational fluid dynamics (CFD) software to calculate airflow through the heat exchanger of the unit and iterate to a design that meets energy efficiency, airflow and heat transfer requirements. The use of simulation in this project saved 60 to 80 hours of physical lab work compared to traditional design methods.
