As a design engineer, have you ever had a senior PHD level engineering analyst come in for an 11th-hour design change? What if you could have collaborated together every step of the way through from conception to form factor to simulation to a final product?
While autonomy represents an incredibly complex engineering challenge spanning multiple functions, perception systems play a foundational role. Automotive autonomy is only possible if the sensors mounted on the car accurately gather information about the surrounding environment and transmit that data to other systems — such as steering and braking — to trigger an appropriate, safe response.
Filtering contaminants from high-temperature and high-pressure flows can often justify the use of additive manufacturing, especially when the performance enhancements provided by advanced design techniques are considered. This article demonstrates this through two design examples and describes how these techniques can apply to other applications, such as boosting reaction rates in catalytic processes.

To better understand how and why the nonexperts are embracing the technology, Digital Engineering's Kenneth Wong spoke to various simulation software users on the frontier of the movement for democracy.
Like other product design engineers, medical device engineers need to know the traditional mechanical properties of a material they plan to use to ensure it’s up to the task. But that’s not enough. They also need to know how the body will react to the device and how the device will react to the body.
Working with the right data is critical to an efficient workflow, but with all the different stakeholders involved in product design and development, how do you know where the right data is?
To conduct a CAE simulation, there are three important steps to an analysis: pre-processing, solving and post-processing. This post discusses the FEA pre-processing step, specifically the importance of a good quality mesh.
The old, siloed approach to product design and development is being replaced by streamlined workflows where an array of hardware and software needs to work together to foster innovation.
Ansys launched a research survey last year to find out how engineering organizations are using HPC resources for engineering simulation.
