ANSYS and Spaceclaim: a greater whole?
An increased number of organisations across industries are incorporating computer-based simulation early in their product development process, so as to reduce costs, innovate and gain a competitive edge. In an exclusive interview, Kaustubh Nande, explains how engineering simulation is playing a key role with the proliferation of intelligent devices and concepts such as Internet of Things (IoT).
SpaceClaim is the world’s fastest and most innovative 3D direct modeller. SpaceClaim brings 3D solid modeling to the desktops of engineers and analysts who work in 3D. This Demo of the Week shows you how to extract beams and shells to quickly fix problems with your contact points.

ANSYS Releases SCADE v15.2 for Systems Engineering
Now with regional training locations across the UK IDAC can offer comprehensive ANSYS training courses encompassing a variety of subject matter, so that your company can make the best use of your software tools as quickly as possible.
IDAC are running a one day FEA & CFD Simulation workshop on the 22nd October in Croydon. This event will exhibit the capabilities of using simulation software in an engineering environment and aims to be informative and interactive. Each company that attends will receive a £250 voucher to redeem against any of IDAC’s services or software.
Events: Simulation Workshop 22nd October
Tips: Repositioning Analysis Systems in Workbench
Complex systems require innovative use of materials. Composite systems simulation can be time consuming without dedicated solutions so ANSYS had developed an intuitive efficient process for simulating composite systems.
The expansion joint that was the subject of this work is a 60” pipe diameter joint, which will be attached to a flue gas pipeline in a Brazilian refinery. The structure was designed for an environment of 750°C flue gas temperature, 2.75 bar internal pipe pressure as well as sustaining pipe thrust end loads and pipe torsional displacements.
Case Study: Design Optimisation of Plastic Holding Tool
What people say...
         "The analysis provided us with an accurate representation of the behaviour and stresses of the expansion joint during operation. This enabled us to reduce material cost, weight and perform minor modifications prior to manufacturing."
            - Project Engineer Nadeem Nuruddin, Senior Flexonics
