Addressing the Challenges of the Design of Hypersonic Vehicles with Simulations

The recent surge in interest in hypersonic technology has highlighted the need to accurately and efficiently simulate these complex flow-fields using simulation tools. Computer simulations for the design and analysis of hypersonic vehicles are critical as it is often impossible to reproduce the high-Mach number, high-enthalpy conditions experienced at the high speeds of these vehicles in a wind tunnel.

Thermal FSI of a Sounding Rocket Through Atmosphere

Sounding rockets frequently contain scientific equipment that needs to survive the thermal consequences of re-entering the Earth’s atmosphere at hypersonic velocities. Traditional thermal protection systems have been designed using uncoupled simulation methods that consider the exterior aerodynamic heating and the interior thermal behavior separately, but this may cause simulation results to be incomplete and even misleading.

First Computer Simulations and Wind Tunnel Tests of Full Cycling Pelotons Give Breakthrough Insights – Webinar

For the first time, the Eindhoven University of Technology and KU Leuven have simulated the aerodynamics of a full peloton with Ansys Computational Fluid Dynamics on CRAY supercomputers. This world-record CFD simulation provides a series of brand new insights into the distribution of air resistance for cyclists inside the peloton. It shows that almost all current mathematical strategic models for breakaways in cycling are based on incorrect assumptions

Introduction to Polymer Processing Simulation

Polymers may be processed in different ways, e.g., coating, pressing, squeezing, extrusion, blowmolding and thermoforming, among others. In this webinar, the challenges of modeling these processes will be presented along with workflows for running successful Ansys Polyflow and Ansys Fluent simulations. Additional materials (case studies, examples and tutorials) will be shared at the end of the presentation.
