May 11 – 15, 2020 LS-DYNA Training Course has been canceled due to COVID-19.

 

May 11 – 15, 2020 LS-DYNA course has been canceled due to COVID-19.

Out of Concern for the health of our attendees and Staff we regret to inform that the LS-DYNA Explicit, Nonlinear, Large Deformation Analysis for Structural Mechanics May 11-15, 2020 Course has been Canceled due to Coronavirus (COVID-19).

All gatherings and events must be canceled due to COVID-19 spread, we recommend isolation to flatten the curve of transmission and you take all necessary precautions to maintain yourself healthy.

We encourage early registration for Our next Course:

LS-DYNA® Training Implicit and Explicit Nonlinear Transient Analysis for Structural Mechanics on Oct 5 - 9, 2020

For those who cannot travel for our hands-on LS-DYNA training,  we have the option of our ONLINE LS-DYNA TRAINING COURSE.

New CFD case study posted on simulation of recovery boiler combustion

Our latest CFD case study covers our work on a newly built recovery boiler to estimate operational temperatures, CO emissions, and NOx emissions. The recovery boiler is fueled solely by black liquor that is sprayed into the lower furnace.

The coal combustion model defined by Lagrangian particles was used in STAR-CCM+ to model the drying, devolatilization, and char burning reactions that occur to the black liquor. One challenging aspect of black liquor combustion is the droplets swell in size (4 to 5 times original diameter) during the drying and devolatilization reactions. These effects were captured by using customized functions to simulate particle swelling during combustion. Analysis results were comparable to results obtained from previous analyses on comparable boilers.

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
