Adams on a Roll

A group of hollow and solid cylinders once met at the top of a ramp. “Hey, solid cylinders,” said the hollow cylinder, “Want to race?”. So, it began – a battle for the ages, and an outcome so impressive that we recreated it using an Adams simulation. As you can tell, the hollow cylinder did …

Turbocharging CFD with Katana

In the natural world fluids act in harmony with structures, fluids with acoustics, fluids with multibody dynamics, fluids with magnetics, fluids with electrics, and all in a myriad of complex, interactive and very complicated ways. Numerical approximations such as Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) have to grapple with these phenomena; frequently with simplistic empirical models to …
