A New Paradigm in Turbulence Modeling for Aerodynamic Simulation

In Conjunction with SAEWhether for cars, trucks, aircraft, or wind turbines, aerodynamics is a critical aspect of improving energy efficiency. Aerodynamics is a complex science — calculations need to be performed with a high degree of precision and accuracy, since every 1 percent of change in aerodynamic drag or lift has enormous implications on machine performance. Aerodynamic simulation, therefore, requires accurate flow solvers, comprehensive turbulence models, and precise geometry handling.

Multiphysics Analysis for CFD Applications in COMSOL Multiphysics®

If you want to learn how to perform multiphysics analyses for CFD applications, tune into this webinar. As a scientist or engineer working in simulation, you need to describe more than just the flow and pressure fields in your models. In many cases, the multiphysics interactions between fluid flow and solid objects are also interesting to study, understand, and optimize.

Reducing Prototyping Costs with Rapid Overmolding

Prototyping overmolded parts using production grade materials is now easier with the recent launch of rapid overmolding services at Proto Labs. Using existing mold technology, you can get overmolded prototypes within days, allowing you to reduce design risk while accelerating development. Learn about key design considerations, material compatibility, and the differences (and similarities) between rapid overmolding and larger-scale production processes.

Thermal Optimization for Energy Efficiency

Nearly everything has an optimal operating temperature and thermal condition. Millions of dollars each year are spent generating and transporting thermal energy to achieve thermal goals. Thermal optimization not only improves the economy of transporting energy, maintaining building temperatures, manufacturing processes and products, it improves their efficiency as well. Engineers use simulation to reveal detailed pictures of thermal processes, providing a deep understanding of all aspects of thermal management.

The Friction Factor: Meeting the Challenges of Modern Aerospace Gimbal Sealing

For as long as radar, weapons targeting, and other electronic systems have been used in aerospace and defense applications, design engineers have employed gimbals as a means to protect them. But sealing these gimbals is a balancing act, requiring the right mix of friction, minimal leak rate and maximum service life.
