Flow around an airfoil

This is one of the earlier projects I worked on, but it’s a fascinating one, this process was done and will be done when before prototyping an airfoil profile for wings on airplanes. 909 more words


Mixing water in ANSYS

I will be using this study case as a tool to learn the side by side comparison that ANSYS allows me to make. This is a powerful tool for someone who wants to develop a component or try and optimize the performance of one. 935 more words


Flow around a cylinder

This is the analysis of a very classical problem, we’ve encountered it in fluid dynamics class (for those of you who had proper lecturers, I salute you). 531 more words



If you ever ever hear these words used relative to an investigation your doctor wants you undertake—RUN AWAY.  I say this advisedly because I just experienced this test due to issues I was and am having with acid reflux.  980 more words


Simulation of steady and transient flows over solid circular cylinder using ANSYS Fluent

For beginners trying to understand the basic implementation methodologies of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD), flow-over-a-cylinder is one of the classical problems to work with. This is because of the following: 105 more words

Did cubism inspire engineering analysis?

A few weeks ago we went to the Tate Liverpool with some friends who were visiting from out of town. It was my second visit to the gallery in as many months and I was reminded that on the previous visit I had thought about writing a post on a painting called ‘ 263 more words
