  • Combining Simulation with Additive Manufacturing to Optimize Product Design Jun 17 2020 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Doug Oatis, Lead Mechanical Engineer, PADT, Inc.
    Advatech Pacific, a Phoenix-based aerospace and defense contractor founded in 1995, works to change the way engineering is conducted for the better by incorporating innovative technologies into its customer’s workflow. Based on the success of previous projects, Advatech is a strong proponent of using high-end simulation software such as ANSYS to identify and evaluate the fine details of massive multi-body mechanical systems, whether through simple static analyses or tightly-coupled multiphysics computations.

    Implementing additive manufacturing as an additional way to improve system design presented opportunities to cut back on tooling costs and reduce lead time for several candidate turbine-engine parts. Doing so would also alleviate the challenge of reproducing complex castings, a problem made increasingly difficult by the fact that many of the original casting providers are no longer in business.

    Join PADT's Lead Mechanical Engineer Doug Oatis, and Advatech Pacific's Engineering Manager Matt Humrick for a discussion on Ansys tools with regards to additive manufacturing & topology optimization, and how Advatech Pacific was able to use them to drastically improve the efficiency of their design and manufacturing process.

    Simulation has been and continues to be a powerful tool for helping to drive innovation in the medical industry. Everything from medical devices, to hospital equipment, and even pharmaceutical and clinical practices can benefit from the introduction of simulation technology. This is true now more than ever, as the we all are facing such turbulent times.

    During the COVID-19 pandemic, Ansys is striving to combat the spread of the coronavirus, by backing the ongoing initiatives of customers and partners working in the medical sphere. In order to support healthcare professionals, policy makers, and communities around the world in this endeavor, Ansys is sharing key insights gained from their own analyse, along with those of partners and other collaborators, regarding how to prevent future spread, and treat those already effected by the virus.

    Join PADT's Co-founder and Principal engineer Eric Miller, along with Marc Horner, Principal Healthcare Engineer at Ansys, for a discussion on what the company is doing to combat the virus, as well as a look at some models that effectively illustrate how the tools are being used.
  • Designing Better Rocket Engines with ANSYS Recorded: May 21 2020 64 mins
    Eric Koder, Ansys Account Manager - PADT & Bill Murray, Director of Design and Analysis - Ursa Major Technologies
    In 2017 Colorado based company Ursa Major Technologies put together an expert team of designers and engineers to realize its vision of providing the microsatellite industry with the best rocket engines in the business. Utilizing Ansys simulation software, additive manufacturing, and modernizing staged combustion, the company successfully designed and built two liquid oxygen and kerosene engines and has a third engine in development.

    With Ansys, Ursa Major Technologies is accomplishing design goals faster
    and more efficiently than ever before. Using Finite Element Analysis
    (FEA), the company can run models with 30-40 unique parts to analyze entire
    turbo pumps in one simulation. Thrust analysis, which the company had
    previously done with 2D models, can now be done all in the Ansys CFX tool
    more cost-effectively.

    Join PADT and Ursa Major Technologies for a brief overview of applications for Ansys in the aerospace industry, followed by an exploration of how they are using these simulation tools to better design and optimize the next generation of rocket engines.

  • Optimize Your Electric Machine Design with ANSYS Motor-CAD Recorded: Dec 4 2019 50 mins
    Doug Oatis, Simulation Support & Application Engineer, PADT, Inc.
    Engineers who design electric machines need simulation tools that can be employed for quick, accurate product development. With decreasing development cycles, this has become increasingly true for motor designers, needing to achieve a certainty that they will not face additional problems down the line. By employing finite element methods early in the design process, they can accelerate development and achieve higher machine efficiencies using less material, which reduces costs. Furthermore, to achieve an optimal motor design demands a full multiphysics analysis workflow.

    ANSYS Motor-CAD is a dedicated electric machine design tool for fast multiphysics simulation across the full torque-speed operating range. This tool enables design engineers to evaluate motor topologies and concepts across the full operating range, in order to produce designs that are optimized for performance, efficiency and size. Motor-CAD software’s four integrated modules; electromagnetics, thermal, virtual testing laboratory, and mechanical, enable multiphysics calculations to be performed quickly and iteratively, so users can get from concept to final design in less time.
