    There has been a strong trend in recent years to increase simulation realism, providing more accurate analysis results. This increase in the need for accuracy has led to greater confidence in CAE as a design tool, resulting in more highly optimized designs earlier in the design process.

    Traditionally, 3D analysis and 1D analysis were performed in isolation, but engineers today are benefiting from a best-of-both-worlds approach by combining both within a single simulation. The 3D simulation provides enhanced local accuracy and insight and is complemented by more realistic operating conditions which come from modeling the wider system in the 1D simulation.

    This webinar will demonstrate how linking 1D system models in LMS Imagine.Lab Amesim and 3D CAE in STAR-CCM+ allows for...

    O desenvolvimento de projetos de embarcações tem sido constantemente atualizado com novas tecnologias. A eficiência do navio tem se tornado cada vez mais importante em um mercado onde as margens operacionais são baixas e as normas de emissões estão cada vez mais apertadas. Os proprietários das embarcações são geralmente demandados por tomar decisões rápidas sobre mudanças no projeto ou modificações que afetam a performance. Neste sentido, o tempo de resposta é tão importante quanto a sua precisão, de forma que se possa atender aos prazos apertados no projeto do navio.

    Para que estes desafios possam ser atendidos, tanto em prazo quanto na precisão do resultado, o time de CFD da Siemens apresentará um sistema automatizado. Esta aplicação...

    The shower head is a critical part of a chemical vapour deposition (CVD) chamber, distributing gases properly to ensure uniformity of deposition rates across the wafer. The shower head typically consists of a large number of small holes through which the gas is delivered over the surface of the wafer. Precise control of flow speed, temperature and gas species distribution is critical, so a well-designed shower head provides higher quality deposition as well increased wafer throughput.

    This seminar will explore the usage of simulation to improve the design of a shower head. The baseline shower head design will first be virtually tested, and then a wide range of design options will be automatically explored to improve the selected performance criteria subject to defined...

    Until recently, the ability to accurately characterize combustion of gas-fuels (usually methane) and liquid-fuels required the use of expensive testing and validation. The development of computational methods over the last 20 years has opened the doors to new methods to help engineers discover better combustor designs faster by enabling accurate assessment of such important combustor performance characteristics as:

    • Fuel/air mixing
    • The ability to use different fuels in the same combustor (or with only slightly modifications)
    • Predictions of NOx and CO emissions and soot formation, including from use of different equivalence ratios – to help keep parts-per-million (ppm) levels below government-mandated thresholds
    • Effective management of cooling air

    To produce products at the lowest possible cost and high quality while meeting safety requirements, companies in the chemical and mineral processing industries must optimize all elements of their operations to stay competitive. 

    Handling equipment such as pneumatic conveyors, hoppers, chutes and belt conveyors is used for the transport of particles. Processing equipment such as cyclone separators, calciners, dryers and coaters are used for various unit operations. 

    Process engineers need to take into consideration not only the flow of particles but also that of a carrier fluid. The intricate dynamics of the interaction of these two phases is governed by momentum and energy transfers, impacting various phenomena such as erosion, abrasion, wetting, cohesion and...
