Embedding ANSYS AIM into a STEM Education

In a high school classroom, we battle constantly against a storm of changing technologies, competing educational needs, time and materials. As technology advances and industries change, educators do their best to keep students competitive and prepared for these changes. It becomes increasingly difficult, though, to develop meaningful challenges for students because of the cost of materials and other resources.

At the same time, it is challenging to justify the time and importance of your content against other subjects in the school, such as math or science. With the power of ANSYS AIM and ANSYS SpaceClaim, the technology education classroom has been given an important tool to fight back against the storm. Continue reading

Sustainability in the Chemical and Process Industries

pillars of sustainabilitySustainable engineering along with process safety is one of the technical tracks in this year’s upcoming Spring meeting of the American Society of Chemical Engineers – March 26-30 San Antonio, TX. The forum covers a range of process design topics, presentations and discussions around environmental initiatives for air, water and soil protection. So, what is sustainability and what are chemical engineers doing about it? Continue reading

Are You Keeping Up with the Converged Digital Economy?

I just returned from the ANSYS 18 events in China and Taiwan where I shared my perspective on the convergence of industries. I used the rapid pivot of automotive and high-tech industries towards each as an example. And while I had ample presentation material, Intel’s $15 billion purchase of Mobileye was a great validation. Mobileye is well-known pioneer in autonomous vehicle technologies. It is nice to have $15 Billion dollars to make your point!  This illustration from the Wall Street Journal also showcased similar recent investments by other companies.

Overset Mesh and CFD Simulates a Clean Room Smoke Test

clean room environmentRecent innovations in ANSYS 18 overset mesh have made it possible to use computational fluid dynamics simulations to model the smoke tests that provide useful guidance in designing clean rooms.

Ensuring Clean Rooms are Actually Clean

In the healthcare and electronics industries, process contamination is a primary concern. They manufacture these sensitive products in clean rooms where the concentration of airborne particles is controlled to specified limits. For example, a Class 100 clean room keeps particles of 0.5 microns or larger to less than 100 per cubic foot of air. Even in these controlled environments, particles are constantly being created and can settle on and contaminate surfaces and products.   Continue reading

NVIDIA Quadro GP100 Delivers Superior Performance for Transient Electromagnetic Simulation

Nvidia Quadro GP100NVIDIA recently announced its ultra high-end Quadro GP100 graphics card in February. Comparing to previous generations of Quadro cards, the new card runs much faster and is more power efficient. The new GP100 GPU has 3,584 CUDA cores, which deliver 10.6 and 5.3 teraflops floating point performances for single- and double-precision, respectively.

The GPU is also equipped with 16 GB HBM2 (the 2nd generation high-bandwidth memory) which allows data to be transferred at a lightning fast speed of 720 GB/sec. Both factors enhance the performance for running the most demanding transient electromagnetic simulation.

3 Milestones on Our Way to the Medical Digital Twin: ANSYS Leads the Charge

In September 2016, I wrote about the medical digital twin concept. I continue to read numerous articles showing confidence that we are indeed on our way towards the medical digital twin. One particular article from the BBC nicely described how our heart digital twin could prevent its failure. If everybody agrees this is the direction we need to follow, many think that the medical digital twin is a concept way ahead in the future.

I slightly disagree as there are 3 major on-going initiatives paving the way to the medical digital twin likely to reach key milestones in the foreseeable future: Continue reading

Earth-to-Space Delivery Services℠ Faster and Affordable with ANSYS Simulation

earth to space delivery systemsThe rapid surge in consumer demand for mobility, connectivity and content has fundamentally changed the space industry. Space, as the ultimate vantage point, is a necessary destination to connect 55 percent of the world that does not have access to the internet. With miniaturization of technologies, capabilities that until now required large satellites the size of a bus with a billion-dollar price tag are being challenged by small satellites that are 12 inches long and weigh only 9 pounds. When constellations of 24 to 800 of these small satellites are established in low Earth orbit, the world will enjoy global WiFi, maritime connectivity, real-time navigation maps, precise weather forecasts, virtual reality in space and more.

ANSYS 18 Innovations for Electronics Cooling

electronics cooling of mobile devicesAs digital electronic devices continue to shrink and put greater functionality within consumer and enterprise products, thermal management continues to grow as the bottle neck for defining next generation architectures. Significant challenges exist today because the heat being generated continues to rise while the thermal envelope remains constant for silicon devices.

While some switching power converters have moved to III-V semiconductor materials such as GaN, the overall system still contains many silicon semiconductor devices that must meet traditional thermal envelopes. The removal of this heat has become a critical aspect of the design process, often being a very significant driver of what can be delivered within an electronic product. Continue reading
