Nature's Answer to Meshing: How is it that honeybees (average brain size 1g) manage to outmesh those CFD engineers (average brain size 1250g) who still religiously rely on tetrahedral meshing? The answer is obviously not that bees are more intelligent than engineers (although there are a few notable exceptions). Whereas CFD and associated meshing technology has been around for just 40 years, bees benefit from several billion years of evolution. From a purely evolutionary viewpoint, the hexagonal structure of the honeycomb is the endpoint of an exercise in energy optimization. The walls of...

„Der schnelllebige Markt fordert wettbewerbsfähige Produkte in kürzester Zeit. Sicherheit und Komfort, Leistung und Energieeffizienz, Haltbarkeit und Flexibilität – vielfältige Anforderungen an die Produkte lassen Zielkonflikte entstehen und erschweren Lösungsfindungen.“ Basierend auf der vorangegangenen Studienarbeit „Strömungsanalyse um ein Formula-Student-Auto mittels CFD“ werden die Ergebnisse als Basis herangezogen. Dabei wird das Ausgangsmodell zu Beginn für die Optimierungssoftware aufbereitet, im Anschluss im STAR-CCM+ berechnet und mit TOSCA-Fluid optimiert. Die Erwartungshaltung an...
Key-Off Thermal Management, Engine Cover

The Modal Response of a Riser
A short animation of the modal response of a riser in an offshore drilling platform.
Key-Off Thermal Management, Underbody View
A short animation of Vehicle Thermal Management (VTM) results showing the heat transfer away from hot components into neighboring ones during a key-off event.
Fluid Atomization by Kelvin-Helmholtz Instability
An animation of the effects of a Kelvin-Helmholtz instability on atomization of a fluid.
Hull Stresses During Operation Using FSI
A short animation showing the capability of solving for operational stresses in a simple hull using FSI.
Effects of Flow on Two Baffles Using FSI
This short animation displays how FSI can be used to predict the complicated motion time-history associated with such a driven coupled system, two vertical baffles being displaced by a stiff wind, the interaction of the effects of their deformed shape and position properly captured. Parallels in Life Sciences, Power Generation and Oil and Gas are possible.
