Heart Valve Analysis

Predicting Aortic Stenosis through Simulation Aortic valve Stenosis is a heart value disorder that narrows the aortic valve opening due to calcium build up in the leaflets. This prevents the valve from opening properly and obstructs the flow of blood causing the heart to work harder.

Applications of Advanced Composite Simulation and Design Optimization

Usage of fiber reinforced composite material entered an new era when leading aircraft OEMs took an unprecedented step to design and manufacture essentially full composite airframe for commercial airliners. Composite structures offer unmatched design potential as the laminate material properties can be tailored almost continuously throughout the structure. However, this increased design freedom also brings new challenges for the design process and software. Moreover, as a relatively new material, composite behaviors are more complex and less fully understood by design engineers. Therefore, reliable simulation for highly complex events like bird strike and ditching can play an important role in shortening the product design cycle. This paper showcases two area of CAE tools for composite applications. On advanced simulation, bird strike simulation with Altair RADIOSS [1] is demonstrated on an aircraft underbelly fairing. On design optimization, an airplane wing structure is designed using an innovative composite optimization process implemented in Altair OptiStruct [1-3]. OptiStruct has seen increasing adoption among aerospace OEMs, as demonstrated in the Bombardier application process described in this paper.

A Comparative Aerodynamic Study of Commercial Bicycle Wheels Using CFD

A CFD methodology is used to study the performance of several commercial bicycle wheels over a range of speeds and yaw angles. The wheels studied in this work include the Rolf Sestriere, HED H3 TriSpoke, the Zipp 404, 808 and 1080 deep rim wheels and the Zipp Sub9 disc wheel. Wheels are modeled at speeds of 20mph and 30mph, in contact with the ground, using Reynolds-Averaged Navier Stokes (RANS). Drag, vertical and side (or lift) forces are reported for each wheel. Turning moments are also calculated using the resolved side forces to examine aspects of stability and maneuverability. Drag and side forces over the range of yaw angles studied compare favorably to experimental wind tunnel results. The previously reported unique transition from downward to upward acting vertical force on the Zipp 404 wheel for increasing yaw angles is observed for all deep rim wheels and the disc wheel studied here. Wheels were also modeled at a critical yaw angle of 10 degrees using Delayed Detached Eddy Simulation (DDES) to examine the transient aspects of flows around moving bicycle wheels. It is hoped that a more complete comprehension of these results will lead to improvements in performance, safety and control of bicycle racing wheels used by amateur and professional cyclists and triathletes.

CFD is used to study air flow around a rotating bicycle wheel in contact with the ground, extending previous ‘wheel-only’ work on this problem by including the fork, head tube, top tube, down tube, caliper and brake pads. Unsteady simulations, using a Delayed Detached Eddy Simulation (DDES) turbulence model, were run for 9 different wheel and front fork configurations, over 10 different operating conditions (5 yaw angles, repeated for two different speeds, commonly encountered by cyclists), resulting in 90 transient design points.

An Aerodynamic Study of Bicycle Wheel Performance Using CFD

A methodology is presented to apply CFD to study air flow around a rotating bicycle wheel in contact with the ground. The bicycle wheel studied here is an accurate geometrical representation of a commercial racing wheel (Zipp 404). Reynolds-Averaged Navier Stokes (RANS) and Delayed Detached Eddy Simulation (DDES) results are computed at a range of speeds and yaw angles commonly encountered by cyclists. Drag and side (or lift) forces are resolved and compare favorably to experimental results obtained from wind tunnel tests. Vertical forces acting on a rotating bicycle wheel are presented for the first time. A unique transition from downward to upward acting force is observed as the yaw angle is increased. Flow structures are identified and compared for different yaw angles. It is expected that a more complete comprehension of these results will lead to improvements in the performance and handling characteristics of bicycle racing wheels used by professional cyclists and triathletes.

HyperWorks Improves Development Processes in Automotive Industry

In 2008 PWO Germany (Progress-Werk Oberkirch AG) had to develop and produce a new steel made automotive cross car beam (CCB) for the dash board of a new car. PWO received the CAD model, the design space definition and other pre-defined standards of the component from the customer and developed and produced the fitting cross beam based on this information. PWO used the HyperWorks Suite to develop the component. HyperMesh was used to transfer the CAD model into a FEA model, which was then used to run dedicated analysis and simulation tasks. To fulfill the requirements for crash and modal analysis, the company used OptiStruct to optimize the component, RADIOSS and other external solver to run the calculations and HyperView for the post processing. HyperForm was used to check the production feasibility of the individual components and for metal forming simulation tasks. It was important for PWO to have a software suite available that could cover all simulation tasks within one graphical user interface and licensing system.
