Recently, service providers and home appliance manufacturers have launched a new initiative to bring the concept of smart homes to reality allowing subscribers to remotely manage and monitor different home devices from anywhere via smart phones or over the web with no physical distance limitations.

Each year the cloud faithful converge on Las Vegas in the fall for AWS re:Invent. This year’s event delivered exciting announcements for ANSYS users interested in performing engineering simulation on the AWS cloud.
With well over 30,000 attendees, the 2016 conference was too big to be contained within the expansive Venetian hotel/Sands expo complex and it spilled across into adjacent facilities (comfortable shoes were a requirement). Wednesday’s keynote session by Andy Jassy, CEO and Thursday’s session by Werner Vogels, CTO highlighted the growing reach of AWS. The conference featured a staggering number of new features, services and some powerful new hardware. Continue reading
As the winners of the Formula SAE competition Australia last year, MUR Motorsports is looking to repeat our success by designing a more aggressive aerodynamics package and optimizing the weight of the vehicle. These targets were deemed by our in-house lap simulator to be two of the driving factors for winning the F-SAE Australasian competition in December. To effectively manage our workload and streamline the design process, we used ANSYS simulation software in almost all of our subteam’s design processes. Continue reading

As the end of the year approaches, it’s always a good time to reflect on our achievements — did I really stick to those resolutions I made at the start of the year? — and to look forward to new goals and possibilities. It is also a time to celebrate the holidays and give thanks for the many good things that have happened this year. None more so than those showcased in ANSYS Advantage Magazine: Excellence in Engineering Simulation. Continue reading
If you’re an engineer who has dealt with large simulation models, you know there’s often a trade-off between accuracy and solution time. Submodeling is a technique you can use to reduce solution time without sacrificing accuracy of results.
A common strategy you can use to look at the overall behavior of an assembly or complex part of a large model is to simplify the model during preparation by removing small details, like fillets and holes. Simplifying models in this way can have a significant impact on run times. This simplification, while not excessively affecting overall model stiffness, may result in lower resolution of localized stresses. What you need, then, is a mechanism that allows you to “zoom in” on these details to examine behavior around specific areas.
If you do a quick Google search, you will find many articles and resources that offer tips on creating a solid funding pitch. For the purpose of this blog, I am referencing Chance Barnett, CEO of CrowdFunder, who has raised millions in angel and venture capital, and seen thousands of company pitches on his company’s website. (You can find all his recommendations and download his pitch deck template.)
But, I want to highlight how an entrepreneur could add simulation to their pitch deck to strengthen their message and add credibility to the proposed project. Continue reading
