All Things Ansys 094: The Indy Autonomous Challenge – Ansys Simulation Race

 

Published on: August 9th, 2021
With: Eric Miller, John Zinn, Alexander Wischnewski & Filippo Parravicini
Description:  

In this episode your host and Co-Founder of PADT, Eric Miller is joined by participants of the recent Ansys Simulation Race as part of the Indy Autonomous Challenge (IAC).

Before university teams from around the globe compete in the IAC race currently scheduled for October 2021, they first had to prove their software in the virtual world at the Ansys IAC Simulation Race.

Once the racecar software controllers of the teams were submitted, Ansys conducted an entirely virtual race consisting of qualifying rounds and a final race. Ansys awarded the winning team a $100,000 prize and the runner up a $50,000 prize.

Listen to learn more about this exciting showcase for the capabilities of Ansys autonomous technology.

Introducing Ansys Rocky – Webinar

PADT is excited to share more information on one of the latest Ansys acquisitions, Rocky DEM.

Rocky is a powerful 3D Discrete Element Modeling (DEM) Particle Simulation Software that quickly and accurately simulates the flow behavior of bulk materials with complex particle shapes and size distributions, for typical applications such as conveyor chutes, mills, mixers, and other materials handling equipment.

Rocky is fully integrated with the Ansys Workbench suite of products, providing engineers with the ability to perform coupled analysis of particles simulation together with other physics such as structural and fluids. 

Such coupling can be performed using both 1-way and 2-way approaches, depending upon the nature of the problem to be solved. When Rocky is coupled with Ansys Mechanical software, engineers can evaluate the tension stresses and forces generated by granular matter as it interacts with materials handling equipment, such as transfer chutes and conveyor belts.

Join PADT’s Senior CFD Engineer and Rocky expert Tom Chadwick for a look at what this tool is all about, as well as how it operates in a variety of industries, such as:

  • Food & Beverage
  • Agricultural Equipment
  • Medical Devices
  • And More
