Happy New Year everyone! I’m sure you’ve missed our ANSYS webinars over the long holiday break, but we’re back in full swing this week. As always, you can visit our full calendar of events on the ANSYS.com website. Here’s what’s on tap this week.
If you’re attending the 51st AIAAA Aerospace Sciences Meeting in Dallas, TX. you can stop by our Booth 316 to speak to our ANSYS experts.
Integrated Solution for Electrical Machine
Tuesday, January 8, 2013
9:00 A.M. EST, 2:00 P.M. GMT (REGISTER)
Thursday, January 10, 2013
4:00 P.M. EST, 9:00 P.M. GMT (REGISTER)
This webinar provides an in depth look at the latest advancements in Maxwell for electrical machine design. The latest release of Maxwell includes advanced and faster meshing capabilities such as the ANSYS TAU meshing technology for motor cross-sections, auto healing of ‘dirty’ models capability to that increase accuracy and solving speed for motor designs. In addition, we will discuss the new HPC functionality available in Maxwell 3D that leverages multi-core, shared memory simulation techniques to accelerate the solution process. Continue reading
ICEM CFD interactive/batch controls can be found in the advanced options of several different methods in ANSYS Meshing.
ANSYS Meshing is the general purpose meshing tool found in the ANSYS Workbench environment. It includes a lot of powerful ICEM and TGrid meshing technology, but exposed in a simplified and automated way. For instance, MultiZone in ANSYS Meshing is based on ICEM CFD hexa technology, but without the learning curve associated with blocking, edge distributions, etc.
However, there are some occasions when advanced users want to take more direct and interactive control over their meshing. ANSYS Meshing allows advanced users to “pop the hood” on some mesh methods with the “ICEM CFD Interactive” options (TGrid interactive is also available as a Beta option). ICEM CFD interactive allows users to launch ICEM CFD with all its controls. You can do full hexa blocking, tetra/prism, shell meshing, diagnostics, automatic or interactive mesh editing, etc. You can start from just the geometry, transferred to ICEM CFD with meshing parameters, or you can actually start with the mesh and adjust it from there. For instance, you could generate an PI tetra mesh in ANSYS Meshing using “Interactive” with “Post Operation” and then use the extended ICEM CFD tools to replace the mesh with a smooth delaunay fill or 12 Tetra to 1 Hexa conversion, smooth, and then return to ANSYS Meshing.

Recent Advances in Traction Motor Simulation (Tuesday Session)
Tuesday, April 10, 2012
9:00 A.M. EDT, 1:00 P.M. GMT
Duration: 60 minutes
Power electronic converters and electric propulsion motors are extremely critical for every hybrid electric vehicle (HEV) system. Integrated simulation technology makes it possible to optimize the system performance and the efficiency of HEV/EV traction motor designs. This webinar will cover high-level aspects of the state-of art simulation technology with examples illustrating the importance of the results. Continue reading
