September has arrived and in the US with the Labor Day picnics well under way and students are back on campus. Why not get your plan for for learning in order as well. ANSYS webinars and events are the perfect way to boost your knowledge and expertise in simulation engineering. Let’s get started with our list of this weeks opportunities!
ANSYS Webinars, Seminars and Events This Week
Curious About Making User Defined Functions in ANSYS Fluent?
Tuesday, September 4, 2012
9:00 am EDT, 1:00 pm GMT (REGISTER HERE)
ANSYS Fluent is a general CFD solver. To make it even more flexible you have the possibility to write your own functions to work together with the solver. Writing UDF:s can get very complicated and be as versatile as the applications themselves. This webinar aims at showing the basic process of writing and using an UDF. This will be done by showing how to define a profile, which is general and simple enough to be of use for any ANSYS Fluent user. In more detail the topics included will be:
- Writing the C-code
- Interpreting or Compiling the code
- Hooking the code in the GUI
- Running the simulation with a UDF
- Questions and answers
Social PLM 2012 Global Virtual Conference & Exhibition
The SocialPLM 2012 virtual conference is a 3-day event that runs September 4 – 6. Stop by our virtual booth and chat with ANSYS experts. The event is free, but registration is required.
The Twitter hashtag for this event is #socialplm where you can join in and follow the conversation. ANSYS is a sponsor of this event.
Simulation in Electromechanics
Are you in Germany? We have two in-person seminars lined up.
Wednesday, September 5th in Düsseldorf
Thursday, September 27th in Munich
The seminar provides an introduction to simulation-based development through the use of tools from ANSYS. Some basic principles and examples of application are presented. In addition, insight into efficient coupling process between physical domains and between components and systems is given. A review of methods for co-simulation, parameter extraction, model order reduction and replacement round off the event.
Participation in the event is free. REGISTER HERE for the event of your choice.
Ask the Expert: Part 2 – Introduction to Multiphase Models in ANSYS CFD
Wednesday, September 5, 2012
4:00 pm EDT, 8:00 pm GMT (REGISTER HERE)
Multiphase flow modeling tools have truly become a wide-spread and mature technology to gain insights into the flow characteristics of a broad range of multiphase flows. A survey of trade journal articles and scholarly publications attests to the increasing impact of multiphase flow modeling in solving everyday design and engineering challenges.
This three-part webinar series is an introduction to modeling multiphase flows with ANSYS CFD. Our aim in this series of webinars to equip a new user with sufficient knowledge to be successful in modeling multiphase flows.
Part 1 of this series covered an introduction to multiphase modeling with ANSYS CFD. Part 2 of this series deals with two of the most widely used multiphase models.
- The discrete particle model that is used widely in modeling sprays, transport of particles and cyclones amongst others
- The volume of fluid method that is used to model flows that are separated at macroscopic (resolved using a mesh) length scales such as slug flows, open channel flows.
IEEE CPMT/IMAPS Advanced Technology Workshop on Optoelectronic Packaging & Assembly
September 6 & 7, 2012
Location: Embassy Suites, 3100 East Frontera Street, Anaheim, CA 92806
The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers – Components, Packaging and Manufacturing Technology Society (IEEE-CPMT) and the International Microelectronics and Packaging Society (IMAPS) are jointly organizing the 2012 Advanced Technology Workshop on Opto-electronic Packaging and Assembly. This workshop will feature an ITRS Assembly and Packaging Roadmap working session as well.
Electromagnetic Low Frequency Simulations for Engineers
ANSYS Maxwell is the premier electromagnetic field simulation software for engineers tasked with designing and analyzing 3-D and 2-D electromagnetic and electromechanical devices such as motors, actuators, transformers, sensors and coils. Please join us for this free webinar that gives an introduction to Maxwell and electromagnetics simulations, including topics such as:
- General introduction to simulations of electromagnetic fields
- Considerations in design of applications such as motors and transformers
- Description of the features and functionality of Maxwell
- Demonstration of how to use Maxwell, from setup to result analysis
- Coupling Maxwell to other ANSYS applications such as Mechanical and CFD with the ANSYS Workbench Environment
Nonlinear Material Modeling in ANSYS - September 7th in Evanston, Ilinois
Advanced Multi-body Hydrodynamics and Motion Analysis Using AQWA Software 2012 Update
Friday, 7th September
9.45-11.00 am EDT (US)
14.45-16.00 pm BST (UK)
15.45-17.00 pm CEST (Europe)
With the necessity to ensure that floating structures meet challenging operational demands, hydrodynamics analysis is vital to the offshore, marine and renewable energy industries. Please join us for this free webinar to be updated on how recent developments in the ANSYS Aqwa software deliver improved virtual prototyping for the investigation of the hydrodynamic effects of ocean loads on floating structures as well as renewable energy systems. The webinar will provide an introduction to AQWA and a software demonstration. In addition the latest enhancements, including multi-directional spectra in the time domain, Morison drag linearization for diffraction analyses, and their application will be presented.
