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

MATLAB Apps For ANSYS Products: Updated for ANSYS 17.0

In 2013, I wrote a blog showing ANSYS users how to make MATLAB apps for ANSYS Fluent. Just as a quick reminder, a friend of mine, who is also an ANSYS Fluent and Mechanical APDL user has a Windows Matlab code programming a Linux Fluent session. She had just updated her hardware. Everything is moved to Linux. She also needed to integrate a Mechanical APDL session.

She was asking me: “Why, can’t I port my MATLAB®  code running on the platform of my choice and be able to also connect to Mechanical APDL?” She challenged me to to create a less than 20 lines code example. Back in 2013, my example was for ANSYS 16.0. Here is my update for ANSYS 17.0. Continue reading
