  • Static Mixer Fatigue Life Assessment with ANSYS Mechanical

    The Norsea Gas Terminal in Northern Germany plays a vital role in the connection of pipeline systems coming from the North Sea to the natural gas distribution network throughout Germany. Built in 1977, the terminal was set to be replaced in 2015 by the GASSCO Emden terminal being built by Linde Engineering to ensure the continued safe and reliable delivery of natural gas to the region.

  • VTOL Vehicle Design and Development

    Morgan Aircraft is developing a breakthrough technology for Vertical Take-Off and Landing (VTOL) aircraft. By using an innovative propulsion system, the VTOL aircraft is designed to be a passenger aircraft that can take off and land from virtually any location. Knowing that precise prediction of aerodynamic performance and stability is critical to the success of the program, Morgan Aircraft requested CAE Associates to lead the research and simulation effort.

  • Analysis of Cavitation Inside a Francis Turbine

    CAE Associates’ CFD consultants performed a CFD analysis of flow through a Francis turbine, in order to identify potential cavitating regions within the turbine for different guide vane angles and operating pressures. We utilized the ANSYS® Fluent suite of CFD software for this application due to its multiphase and turbulence modeling capabilities.

  • Particle-Laden Spray Dryer Flowfield Analysis

    The CFD consultants at CAE Associates are very familiar with techniques necessary to get fast, accurate solutions for spray dryer behavior. We use the ANSYS suite of CFD software, including CFX and Fluent, to ensure high-fidelity solutions.

  • Thermal Radiation Analysis for a Portable Nuclear Waste Storage Unit

    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.

  • CFD Analysis of Data Center Cooling

    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.

  • CFD Analysis & Turbulence Modeling of Golf Club Drag Force

    A client asked CAE Associates’ CFD consultants to perform a CFD analysis by conducting an aerodynamic performance simulation for two candidate driver designs. The primary goal of the CFD analysis was to compare the drag force between the two configurations with a nominal speed of 100 mph (just prior to contact with the golf ball).

  • Balloon Angioplasty Finite Element Analysis

    To better understand the effects of different angioplasty balloon compliances, a Finite Element Analysis (FEA) computer simulation was performed by CAE Associates, using commercially available nylon (semi-compliant) and PET composite (non-compliant) balloons.¹ The simulations demonstrate the effect of balloon compliance on vessel stress during angioplasty.
