Don’t Let the Ocean Knock You Down

Subsurface mooring deployment, recovery, and performance in current and waves For many years moorings have been designed using basic mass-drag-buoyancy calculations, spreadsheets, rules-of-thumb, black magic scripts, and a dose of ‘salty-sea-dog’ experience. With these methods, we can frequently estimate a … Read More

Anyone Up for Badminton?

Is it possible to study and optimize the performance of a badminton racquet through simulation? Is it art or science to design a racquet?   Would it be possible to reuse knowledge from other simulation disciplines and apply them on … Read More

Combining 2D and 3D Simulation

We must often strike the right balance between the computational time and accuracy of our simulation. Simplification/removal of unimportant CAD features, locally refined mesh, and usage of equivalent elements are some proven methodologies to reduce the calculation time. If the … Read More

Thought Leader Thursday: How Can CAE Engineers Use Multiphysics in the Engineering Design Process?

According to Wikipedia, “Multiphysics is a computational discipline which treats simulations that involve multiple physical models or multiple simultaneous physical phenomena.  For example, combining chemical kinetics and fluid mechanics or combining finite elements with molecular dynamics. Multiphysics typically involves solving coupled systems of partial differential equations.” What does this imply for … Read More
