Introduction to using SIMULIA for Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD)

(Members: free. Non-Members: $150.00)

Wednesday, July 15, 11:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. CT

Presented by: 
Murthy Lakshmiraju, CFD Technical Director, VIAS Corp

Webinar Abstract 

SIMULIA’s Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) is driven by three complimentary technologies -  Fluid Dynamics Engineer (FMK) role on 3DEXPERIENCE platform, XFlow and PowerFLOW. These software packages provide customers with scalable fluid simulation to address a broad range of real-world applications. Navier-Stokes based Fluid Dynamics Engineer (FMK) enables multi-scale multi-physical vision by embedding CFD into design, simulation, optimization, data management, and business intelligence applications within the 3DEXPERIENCE platform. PowerFLOW and XFlow offer world class Lattice Boltzmann (LBM) for high fidelity simulations that accurately predict real world performance. PowerFLOW imports fully complex model geometry and accurately and efficiently performs aerodynamic, aeroacoustic and thermal management simulations. XFlow enables users to address complex CFD workflows involving high frequency transient simulations with real moving geometries, complex multiphase flows, free surface flows and fluid-structure interaction.

This Webinar covers:

  • Broad overview of SIMULIA fluid solutions
  • Brief introduction to CFD Solvers
  • SIMULIA fluid solutions for different industries

*Applicable Industries: This is a multi-industry webinar – Automotive, Aerospace & Defense, High tech, CPG, Marine & Offshore, Oil & Gas

*Applicable DS Software: FMK, XFlow, PowerFLOW

Viewing the Design Cycle Through a New Lens

(Members: free. Non-Members: $150.00)

Thursday, August 6, 11:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. CT

Presented by: 
Drew Holbrook, Gulfstream Aerospace
Chris Nusbaum, Gulfstream Aerospace

Webinar Abstract 

With the design cycle of an aircraft being nearly a decade or more in some cases, aerospace companies are always looking for ways to improve efficiency and enable people to make more informed decisions. Gulfstream has found that Augmented and Virtual Reality technology can not only improve decision-making, but also shorten the overall aircraft design cycle. This presentation will highlight areas where Gulfstream has deployed AR/VR technology to improve the way it does business - such as mitigating the need for physical mock-ups, empowering assembly-line workers through Smart Glasses, and finding ways to train employees and customers virtually in today's ever-changing environment.

Drew Holbrook works for Gulfstream Aerospace in the Business Technology organization’s Advanced Technologies group. He has a B.S. in Aerospace Engineering from N.C. State University and has been with Gulfstream for over 14 years. Originally he started as a Structural Designer before moving into the Preliminary Design group designing future aircraft. 

Chris Nusbaum works in the Advanced Technologies organization at Gulfstream Aerospace. He has a B.S. in Computer Engineering from the University of Cincinnati and a M.S. in Systems Engineering from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University. Chris has worked with various parts of the business since 2005.
