Flux Webinar: Accelerate your Design Process with Flux - Dealing with Complex 3D CAD Models

Flux is now fully part of HyperWorks and thanks to our flexible HyperWorks Units, users are now able to access even more tools that will help you to save time in your designs and enable powerful simulations. Flux embeds its own pre-preprocessing tools but designers sometimes need to deal with complex 3D geometries generated by their CAD team.

Using Altair FEKO to Facilitate Development of the World's Smallest TV Antenna

Dr. Margarita Tecpoyotl-Torres leads a team of students and researchers at The Center for Research in Engineering and Applied Sciences (CIICAp) at UAEM. They use FEKO for simulation technology in the design and development small, low cost, lightweight antennas for TV and automotive applications. Her team demonstrated an outstanding level of innovation in the development of the world’s smallest antenna.

3D Calculation and Modeling of Eddy Current Losses in a Large Power Transformer

Elimination of hot spots and reduction of eddy current losses in structural parts is one of the important constituents of transformer design. In this work, the eddy current losses in the clamping frame, transformer tank and electromagnetic shielding are calculated using a 3D finite element method. The clamping frame, transformer tank and electromagnetic shielding are modeled by surface impedance method. The paper analyses the effects of electromagnetic shielding and magnetic shunts on the eddy current loss reduction in the transformer tank.

MotionSolve for Wind Power

MotionSolve – Altair’s multi-body solution is an integrated solution to analyze and improve mechanical system performance. In the energy industry, MotionSolve is used to simulate wind turbine dynamics systems. An accurate virtual wind turbine can be constructed by considering high-fidelity components, such as aerodynamic loads, wind loads, detailed structural sub-systems and co-simulation with control systems. MotionSolve can be used to predict the loads coming on to the structure, simulate extreme events (such as emergency stop), offshore wind turbine dynamics and extract stress/strain for further durability studies.

Schlumberger Eclipse Integration White Paper and How-To Guide

The Schlumberger ECLIPSE software family offers the industry’s most complete and robust set of reservoir simulation software. In response to user requests, Altair has collaborated with Schlumberger to deliver a tightly integrated version of ECLIPSE for PBS Professional. This paper documents the integration and provides step-by-step instructions for configuration and use.

PBS Professional Utilizes Intel Cluster Checker to Validate the Health of an HPC Cluster

On clusters that are Intel® Cluster Ready (ICR) certified, PBS Professional can utilize Intel® Cluster Checker for gathering real-time information about the cluster at the very moment a job has been scheduled. Using this immediate feedback, PBS Professional can ensure that a job is only being executed on a cluster that has passed a check by Intel Cluster Checker.

Korea Meteorological Administration Implements Cost-saving Innovations for Electricity Usage with PBS Professional and AcuSolve

“PBS Professional has been a very reliable workload manager for our large, complex supercomputing systems… Cray and Altair are supercomputing leaders in the weather and climate modeling industry, and we are more than happy to have collaborated for this groundbreaking HPC simulation project.” - Ha-young Oh, Assistant Director of National Center for Meteorological Supercomputer
