I was recently presented with a unique opportunity to compare the results of full ANSYS CFD simulations with the results obtained using the new ANSYS Discovery Live product, which provides results instantly upon changing the geometry without interrupting a run. I was very pleased and surprised by the speed and accuracy of Discovery Live in this comparison test.
I work for Astec, Inc., the subsidiary of Astec Industries that builds asphalt plants. Roadtec Inc., another Astec Industries company, builds asphalt pavers, reclaimers and material transfer vehicles (MTVs). An MTV helps to accomplish non-stop, non-contact paving by offering a continuous supply of Hot Mix to the paver. By separating dump trucks from the paver this way, contractors are able to make a smoother finished road.

Getting power management right in the era of heterogeneous SoCs is a multi-pronged effort, there’s no getting around it. There are many technical avenues to managing the power in heterogenous SoCs today, as well as a few human ones.
Engineering teams daily try to squeeze more and more power from their designs, which many times includes adding human resources and expertise to the project.
Take an example where a design team leader gets the mandate to include high level synthesis in the design methodology.
As we announced recently, ANSYS and 3DSIM have joined forces to offer engineers, designers and machine operators the only end-to-end additive manufacturing (AM) simulation workflow in the world today. We call it simulation-driven additive manufacturing. The powerful combination of exaSIM and FLEX from 3DSIM with ANSYS Workbench and the full line of ANSYS solvers will give you unprecedented design-to-print capabilities for AM.
Why is this important? Because there are still challenges to be overcome in AM — especially for metals — to ensure that every part will be built successfully with full confidence in its design and functionality the first time through the AM process. Our aim is to ensure first build success through comprehensive simulation of all aspects of additive manufacturing, from machine setup to the microstructure of the metal to the structural integrity of the finished part.Read the rest of this entry »
The role of 3-D physics, systems simulation and embedded software is expanding rapidly into new industries and disciplines. A few years ago, 3-D physics simulation was limited to specific departments within organizations, and often these departments did not coordinate with each other on product development activities. Fast forward to today, and much has changed and must continue to evolve in order for companies to remain competitive in the changing landscape of product development. Integrated 3-D physics, systems simulation and embedded software tools are of the utmost importance — especially when tackling the challenges of quickly and accurately developing the technology driving digital twins and autonomous vehicles.
Join us in Paris for our Innovations Conference on December 5-6 and learn how our customers are using simulation to bring their products to market faster.

When designing heavy equipment such as bucket loaders, truck bodies and diggers, finite element analysis tools, such as ANSYS, are a ‘must-have’ in any design engineer toolkit in order to assess the structural integrity of designs and ensure their durability and performance. But while FEA will provide engineers with a wide range of tools for setting up meshes, joints, and boundary conditions, there is one thing missing in this analysis: the bulk material itself that the machine is supposed to handle! DEM (Discreet Element Method) offers additional capabilities to account for bulk materials.
Mentor Graphics, who was acquired by Siemens earlier this year, has announced the latest release of its computerized fluid dynamics (CFD) program, FloEFD. Mentor hopes that the latest release will encourage engineers to integrate CFD into their design process in the early stages, allowing the full capability of fluid simulation to be experienced.

Included in the latest release are updates to its surface simulation functi…
