Cold Plate Technology Comparison


New types of energy, such as wind and solar power, are being utilized more prevalently and hybrid cars/buses are being identified as a means of reducing carbon dioxide emissions resulting from the use of fossil fuels. Electronic systems like frequency converters for wind power and train utilization are required to provide ever higher levels of energy savings. As such, IGBT (insulated-gate bipol... » read more

Engineering Simulation Workloads And The Rise of the Cloud


Cloud service providers (CSPs) continue to improve the performance capabilities of their non-accelerated and accelerated compute instances, as well as augment their HPC infrastructure with domain-area expertise of targeted HPC workloads. Additionally, engineers, researchers, and scientists are becoming more comfortable with the types of workloads that can be run in the cloud within acceptable w... » read more

The commercial aviation industry is facing the total transformation of aircraft propulsion in the coming decades. As manufacturers develop more sustainable propulsion systems and strive to reduce the environmental impact of commercial aircraft, they must design products optimized for performance and safety. Commercial aviation companies can use digital engineering solutions to do exactly that. ... » read more

17 Equations That Changed The World


Mathematics has been a constant part of our lives forever and is used in many ways in our everyday lives. Created by Ian Stewart, listed on Dr. Paul Coxon’s Twitter account, and discussed on mathematics blogger Larry Philip’s site is a list of the “17 Equations that Changed the World,” many of which have been mentioned on The Big Bang TheoryTV series. However, the list is incomplete.... » read more

Best Practice: RANS Turbulence Modeling In Ansys CFD


Turbulence modeling is one of the main sources of uncertainty in CFD simulations of technical flows. This is not surprising, as turbulence is the most complex phenomenon in classical physics. Turbulent flows pose a multi-scale problem, where the dimension of the technical device is often of the order of meters (or even 102 meters in case of airplanes and ships), whereas the smallest turbulence ... » read more

Multiphysics Analysis of Traction Motors: Accelerating Innovation in Electric Mobility Solutions


Between 2021 and 2023, electric vehicles (EVs) represent a $7 trillion market opportunity, and it’s only projected to increase. In a rapidly growing EV market, automakers are turning to advanced design, testing, and manufacturing technologies. Optimized system design requires the evaluation of many different concepts, topologies, and electronic interactions across disciplines. Design and s... » read more

Physics-Based Radar Modeling: Driving Toward Increased Safety


Autonomous driving is revolutionizing the global automotive industry. With every new model, cars are smarter and more capable of independently responding to external signals like lane markings, road signs, other cars and pedestrians. However, formulating a correct response via artificial intelligence depends on the flawless performance of the car’s perception systems, including radar-ba... » read more

Enabling Accurate Electronic-Photonic Co-Design with a Synergetic Workflow on GlobalFoundries Fotonix Platform


Massive growth in research, development, and applications of CMOS-compatible integrated photonics in recent years, along with its expected potential for the years to come, has sparked an ever-increasing demand from designers for seamless and all-inclusive design automation solutions that can enable electronic-photonic co-design while being accurate and easy to use. Here, we demonstrate an end-t... » read more

Best Practice: Scale-Resolving Simulations In Ansys CFD


While today’s CFD simulations are mainly based on Reynolds-Averaged Navier-Stokes (RANS) turbulence models, it is becoming increasingly clear that certain classes of flows are better covered by models in which all or a part of the turbulence spectrum is resolved in at least a portion of the numerical domain. Such methods are termed Scale-Resolving Simulation (SRS) models in this paper. This r... » read more
