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.
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..
FluidDA is active in the life sciences by developing tests to expedite drug development. The company uses simulation to help pharmaceutical companies determine the effectiveness of drugs early in the development process. Learn more in Taming the Cost of Respiratory Drug Development.
Overset mesh in Ansys Fluent simplifies and speeds simulations that include structured mesh around individual parts and part swapping, as well as, moving cell zones without having to use re-meshing or smoothing. Watch as overset mesh is used to simulate an articulating robot arm and a hypersonic rocket booster separation.
ANSYS HFSS provides the capability to utilize ready-made 3D Component models that represent discrete parts or components of a simulation such as an antenna, an RF connector or a surface mount device like a chip capacitor.
Hearing aid directional filters are normally designed to provide optimal performance on an average head. However, directional performance actually depends on the individual’s head and torso shape. Oticon uses multiphysics to advance the personalization of hearing aid performance.
By devising a new computational method that tracks the flow of therapeutic drug particles in an aerosol from the lips to the lungs, researchers can deposit a drug on a targeted lung tumor with 90 percent efficiency. This is a major improvement over the 20 percent efficiency of conventional aerosol treatment methods.One key to the success of this new computational method is the development of a human digital twin that can be made patient specific using the real geometry of the patient’s lungs.
