This is a press release article about the integration of Autodesk Forge Viewer in simulationHub applications. As simulationHub software are web applications, it is very important to provide a good experience for the users to upload and view the 3D CAD model and its simulation results conveniently on the simulationHub’s web browser. So simulationHub, use Autodesk Forge viewer for visualizing the 3D models in a web browser or on mobile devices.
Only 1 out of 100 CAD designer uses Computational Fluid Dynamics in his design workflow. High cost and complex design of CAE software have been the key reason for designers not to use CAE in their design process. Simulation software has a tedious workflow and has a high degree of learning curve. simulationHub is built with the designer as a focal point. At the inception stage of simulationHub, we have decided that appification is the way forward. That is the way to democratize CFD. Not for many, but for few, appification is bit difficult concept to understand. In this blog, Chaitanya explains this concept in a unique way. It’s a fun to read but at the same time throws a light on why appification is the way forward.
Economisers are used for improving the efficiency of Thermal Power Plants. Economisers use the waste flue gases from the boiler furnace to preheat the water entering the boiler. By applying the right design modifications we can improve the Economiser Efficiency and generate more power. This is my experience trying to attain an optimum duct design for the economiser using Generic Simulation app by simulationHub using its CFD technology.
Recently simulationHub has partnered with Onshape to bring power of cloud based CAD and CFD together. simulationHub is now available in Onshape app store as fully integrated app which works within Onshape environment. This blog is about my first experience using “Onshape integrated simulationHub” for design and analysis of butterfly valve. The complete design to analysis process is finished in just 40 minutes!! Read more details, view 3D CAD and CFD results and see the live demonstration.
This is about my personal experience on my visit to home town on the occasion of Diwali - a festival of lights in India. This year I had a unique experience. I experienced how a power of simulation can be used to solve people's day to day problem. The situation was “no air circulation in the kitchen”. This is the story about how this problem is solved using power of CFD simulation. This story also includes how latest CAx tech helped me to answer frequent question “What do you do Vijay for living?”
