Innovations in Motion and Multi-phase Flow Simulation with STAR-CCM+

How are mixers, washers and sprayers currently modeled? Are they even modeled? Are regulations, efficiencies, or performance concerns making you wanting to reevaluate the design process? In this webinar, we'll look at how STAR-CCM+ can be used to meet these challenges. STAR-CCM+ is a premier CFD and Multiphysics modeling tool that can be used for modeling spray, particles flow, motion, films, and non-Newtonian fluids.

Led by our Thermal Analysis and CFD expert Clay Hearn and co-hosted by our partner Applied CAx, this webinar will review available toolkits for simulating motion and multiphase flow with a focus application on mixing and wash. We'll evaluate the different methods for setting up these models and provide work through some tutorials on model setup.

Join us for this upcoming webinar:
Thursday, Oct. 17
11:30am Pacific / 2:30pm Eastern

How to Become a Journeyman Simulation Engineer

It is an inside joke among simulation engineers about how long does it take to be considered a “journeyman” simulation engineer.  The answer is about five years since it takes that long for your mistakes to catch up with you!  It is a brutal profession since everyone is human but the price of failure is especially high when your FEA results are used to build prototypes that cost hundreds of thousands of dollars.  Which leads to another saying: “What is the difference between a design engineer and a simulation engineer?  A design engineer gets a second chance.”  Thus, we were pleased to hear from our client that their composite container passed mobility testing with flying colors.  Not only did it pass, the group doing the testing at Aberdeen said that it was the first time that such container had passed all tests at 100% from drop test, rail impact, heavy lift to land transport.  If you would like to read about more about our FEA work on this container, please take a look at 026_Jensen, Broad-Spectrum Stress and Vibration Analysis of Large Composite Container.pdf.

12th European LS-DYNA Conference, Koblenz, Germany

The LS-DYNA Conference in Koblenz, Germany was the usual blend of great presentations and even greater social events.  The location was beautiful and the Conference was especially well-organized by DYNAmore, Germany (co-sponsored with LSTC, Livermore, CA).  Predictive with ENHU, China hosted a morning run event with T-shirts to whoever could show up at 6:45 am.  Besides the run, we had our “booth” to support the LS-DYNA North American Team and on the technology side, we presented two papers: Impact Analysis of Polymeric Additive Manufactured Lattice Structures and Transient Dynamic Implicit Analysis for Durability Testing of Bus Seats.
