A Revolution in Simulation!

The Rev-Sim.org website provides professional resources and a collaborative community to help increase the value of engineering simulation (CAE) investments through the Democratization of Simulation. By the process of “democratization” CAE experts can put the power of simulation safely and robustly into the hands of those who are not experts in using simulation software, including designers, new engineers and even those in technical sales and support.

The Rev-Sim portal provides access to the latest success stories, news, articles, whitepapers, blogs, presentations, videos, webinars, best practices and reference materials to help democratize simulation in your organization. Ask questions and participate in discussions with your peers and with the expert Topic Moderators on the site.

You’ll also have one-stop access to simulation specialists, industry organizations, special interest discussion groups, and industry media, along with software and consulting service providers to accelerate the return on your simulation investments through democratization.

Join the Revolution in Simulation here to explore, educate, innovate, and collaborate with others who are advancing the power, reach, and reliability of engineering simulation!

    View Summary

    With the following four UberCloud case studies we are demonstrating the growing acceptance of computer-aided engineering (CAE), especially in new user communities and application areas. Major reasons for this trend are continuous improvements in user-friendly CAE software, the ongoing price/performance improvement in high-performance computing (HPC), and easy and affordable access to powerful computing in the cloud.

    View Summary

    Ductwork plays a crucial role when it comes to controlling the delivery and removal of air in both residential and industrial buildings. In the past, simplified analytical models were used to predict the flow profile of a complete duct system. In contrast, nowadays fluid flow simulation (CFD) technology delivers three-dimensional insights into the whole flow field and takes into account all physical effects, as well as the full geometry of the object.

    With ANSYS Discovery they realized that their engineers could assess changes in real-time and discuss them with the other team members to rapidly explore designs. What was previously a longer and more individual exercise became collaborative not just among engineers, but with every team member benefiting from simulation insight. The engineers could literally capture feedback from the skiers as they came off the slopes and Discovery gave them a joint language to explore product performance

  • GPU-based Simulation Will Redefine Product Development

    Discovery Live, powered by NVIDIA GPU, can simulate computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulations much faster than traditional simulation software.

    View Summary

    As product development times shrink, designers are pressured to use simulation to produce near optimal designs. The challenge is that most simulation tools focus on precision and not speed. As a result, these tools don’t operate fast enough for early design exploration.
