Designing District Heating Networks Using Topology Optimization
District heating networks help power plants reach high efficiencies by utilizing cogeneration, which is especially helpful in the winter. How does topology optimization fit in? Keep reading…
How to Convert Point Cloud Data to Surfaces and Solids
Sometimes, the only data you have before starting an analysis project is a set of points (also known as a point cloud). Did you know that a point cloud can be converted into a model geometry?
Using Global Equations to Introduce Fully Coupled Goal Seeking
Learn how to introduce a goal-seeking equation, combined with a fully coupled approach, to solve a nonlinear model. (Follow-up to an earlier blog post on goal seeking with a segregated solver.)
Introducing Goal Seeking into the Segregated Solver
Did you know that you can adjust a model input to achieve a desired output in your nonlinear problems? The process involves implementing a global equation into the segregated solver.
Fractals, Noise, and State Variables
Ever notice how the leaves of a fern seem to show a self-repeating pattern? Fractals are objects that exhibit some form of self-similarity at different scales. Learn how to model them here.
Using Layout Templates for Simulation App Design
Layout templates enable you to streamline your app design workflow in the Application Builder, while still leaving room to implement your own functionality.
The North Pole Models Product Distribution Challenges for the Holidays
Today, a guest blogger from the North Pole discusses using simulation to find out if his boss will be able to fit down all of the chimneys this holiday season.
Keynote Video: Rapid Prototyping for Sonar Systems
Engineers at Northrop Grumman follow a 4-part rapid prototyping design phase: Design, manufacturing a prototype, testing and design verification, and manufacturing of the final design.
