Students Innovate at SpaceX Hyperloop Pod Contest

spacex hyperloop pod contestAs many of our readers know, SpaceX launched an exciting hyperloop pod contest to design a revolutionary pod for the Hyperloop system. Hundreds of teams have assembled worldwide to compete and ANSYS is proud to sponsor this contest by providing simulation tools and support. Simulation is critical for this contest because the deadlines are short and the need to innovate is very high and more than 100 students teams around the world are using ANSYS simulation to design their entry in the Hyperloop Pod contest.

Constitutive Modeling of 3D Printed FDM Parts: Part 2 (Approaches)

In part 1 of this two-part post, I reviewed the challenges in the constitutive modeling of 3D printed parts using the Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) process. In this second part, I discuss some of the approaches that may be used to enable analyses of FDM parts even in presence of these challenges. I present them below in increasing order of the detail captured by the model. Continue reading

Constitutive Modeling of 3D Printed FDM Parts: Part 1 (Challenges)

Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) is increasingly being used to make functional plastic parts in the aerospace industry and this trend is expected to continue and grow in other industries as well. All functional parts have an expected performance that they must sustain during their lifetime. Ensuring this performance is attained is crucial for aerospace components, but important in all applications. Finite Element Analysis (FEA) is an important predictor of part performance in a wide range of industries, but this is not straightforward for the simulation of FDM parts due to difficulties in accurately representing the material behavior in a constitutive model. In part 1 of this article, I list some of the challenges in the development of constitutive models for FDM parts. In part 2, I will discuss possible approaches to addressing these challenges while developing constitutive models that offer some value to the analyst. Continue reading
