Properly applying boundary conditions is critical to the validity of any finite element solution. An example of this is the modeling of a pinned connection between two or more components. Sikorsky turned to the engineers at CAE Associates for assistance with the modeling approach.
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.
Honeywell Safety Products designed its new Worldwide Face Shield to meet the highest impact test standards. Honeywell asked CAE Associates to develop computer models that could replicate the behavior of the current face shield design and provide a good prediction of the behavior of future designs.
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.
For this project, MAKO Surgical chose CAE Associates to perform a finite element analysis of the artificial knee in order to develop comparative metrics for wear in the joint. The finite element analysis was conducted with the understanding that CAE Associates would perform the initial runs and transfer the model to MAKO Surgical for further analysis.
Scientists and engineers at Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL) are responsible for the design of sensor raft towers used in a new Large Synoptic Survey Telescope (LSST). CAE Associates was asked to review the models and make modifications to assure correct modeling procedures and inputs.
The goal of this project was to perform a strength and fatigue evaluation of a nitinol orthopedic implant in a fairly short amount of time. CAE Associates utilized the ANSYS Mechanical software to perform the geometric and material nonlinear simulations that modeled the device and test assembly.
