National Engineers Week – Dreaming of a Better World

national engineers weekIn the United States, National Engineers Week is always the week in February which encompasses George Washington’s actual birthday, February 22. It is observed by more than 70 engineering, education, and cultural societies, and more than 50 corporations and government agencies. ~Wikipedia

When I graduated in 2005 with a Ph.D. in Engineering I did what many of us did at the time: flew to New York City to interview for Quant jobs. That is what was cool and sexy. Financial engineering, not engineering, was all the rage. How times have changed — for the better IMHO. Continue reading

Celebrating 20 Years of Solar Racing with ANSYS

On November 18, 2016, the Blue Sky Solar Racing team gathered at the MaRS Discovery District to celebrate our past achievements and to look forward to the future. We hosted a number of our industry sponsors, faculty supporters, and alumni who explored various displays on the team’s history including photos, trophies and artifacts from past cars. Four generations of cars were displayed at this event as well, including Cerulean (2007), Azure (2011), B-7 (2013) and Horizon (2015). It was an incredible way to celebrate the achievements of the past 20 years of Blue Sky Solar Racing with those who have been part of our journey. Continue reading

The (Technical) Kindness of ANSYS Fluent aaS, a Matlab Example

coding matlab ansys fluentMy friend, a fellow Romanian, just told me a funny story. She just relocated to the U.S. and was asking her dentist “When will I have the root channel treatment?”. The dentist kindly replied “Did you mean root canal, my dear?” 

Human kindness is a beautiful thing. As a software developer, I often wish that computer programs would be equally technically kind. Most of them are not. Many times, when a user mistypes a command, applications crash. Continue reading

Better Particle Erosion Fluid Dynamics Modeling in ANSYS Fluent 18

ANSYS Fluent 18 has advanced erosion fluid dynamics modeling by adding three industry-standard models to the previous default model.

Erosion wear is the loss of material due to repeated impact of solid particles on a surface and causes major economic losses across diverse industries such as oil and gas, hydraulic transportation, and chemical processes. Erosion severely damages flow passages, valves and pipe fittings, leading to higher replacement costs as well as the loss of valuable production time. For example, some oil and gas fittings can fail after just 30 minutes of operation due to high erosion rates! Engineers need to quickly evaluate the erosion on dozens of design variations to find ways of stretching the part’s lifespan in order to reduce costs and maximize process up-time.
