CAE Associates was asked to perform a CFD analysis of a storage unit in order to assess its behavior under a variety of external environmental conditions and provide assurances that it will function according to specification.
An increased demand for computational resources in nearly every industry and the availability of affordable hardware have led to a significant growth in data center facilities all across the world. Advancements in chip design, such as multiple core CPUs, has resulted in denser computers with increased power consumption and heat generation. Reduced space and increased heat output of the server units poses a significant challenge for the cooling system design of these centers. CAE Associates recently conducted a CFD analysis of an air-cooled small data center design using the ANSYS CFX suite of simulation tools.
Heat transfer is a typical application for engineering analysis and is routinely requested as part of CAE Associates’ CFD consulting services. For example, heat exchangers, turbine blades, combustors, furnaces, and electronic package cooling devices all require heat transfer analysis as part of the overall system engineering analysis.
Aircraft engine manufacturers are always seeking to increase power and efficiency of their engine designs via lighter engine components and higher operating temperatures. Pratt & Whitney, along with United Technologies Research Center, sought to improve the design of vane airfoils in terms of temperature range and weight by using a ceramic material. CAE Associates created three-dimensional models of several different vane designs to determine stresses in the ceramic at room temperature and operating conditions.
The CARES/LIFE life prediction code, developed by NASA Lewis Research Center, was used to evaluate the fast fracture life of a ceramic turbine vane subjected to thermal loads. The probabilistic life prediction is performed by first analyzing the structure using ANSYS.
