Investigating Aeroelastic Performance of Multi-MegaWatt Wind Turbine Rotors Using CFD
Recent trends in wind power technology are focusing on increasing power output through an increase in rotor diameter. As the rotor diameter
increases, aeroelastic effects become increasingly important in the design of an efficient blade. A detailed understanding of the fluid elastic
coupling can lead to improved designs; yielding more power, reduced maintenance, and ultimately leading to an overall reduction in the cost
of electricity. In this work, a high fidelity Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) methodology is presented for performing fully coupled Fluid-
Structure Interaction (FSI) simulations of wind turbine blades and rotors using a commercially available flow solver, AcuSolve. We demonstrate
the technique using a 13.2 MW blade design.

Faster Design Changes with HyperWorks’ Morphing Technology
In the development of engine components PSA determines the lifetime of the intake manifold with a complex thermo mechanical calculation. Since the development process is distributed between PSA itself and a supplier, a design change of the intake manifold takes three weeks to be evaluated. For the supplier it has always been hard to correctly interpret the design improvements suggested by the PSA CAE engineers. Due to the three weeks of time, the iteration between OEM and
supplier takes, and because the overall development time is limited, the process just allowed a few design changes. Therefore the design of the manifold can become a critical task in the
engine development. With HyperWorks’ morphing technology (HyperMorph) it is possible to quickly implement design changes and hence to avoid intermediate CAD changes. With this process, only a single final CAD revision is needed when all improvements have been done. The new
workflow with HyperWorks’ morphing technology allows for a much faster evaluation cycle of two days instead of three weeks with the former process.

Additionally, Luxon’s customer wanted to expand the geographic locations where the system could be installed successfully, so it asked Luxon to develop
a more robust support structure to ensure that the system would survive the seismic,
wind and snow loading that the product was likely to encounter in various parts of the world.

Consideration of uncertainties in forming simulation using HyperWorks
This was a 2013 European ATC presentation given by Markus Reinert from DTE Werkzeugtechnik GmbH & Co. KG. In the automotive industry, the lightweight is an increasingly important issue.

DSHplus and AcuSolve - Fluid Power System Simulation Hand in Hand
This was a 2013 European ATC presentation given by Dr. Heiko Baum from FLUIDON Gesellschaft für Fluidtechnik mbH.

Study on structural behavior of an atmospheric re-entry vehicle during ditching
This was a 2013 European ATC presentation given by Dr. Maurizio Coltro from Altran Italia SPA. Water impact phenomenon plays an important role in the context of a controlled ditching in the final phase of an atmospheric reentry vehicle mission.

Coupled thermal, structural, and CFD simulation using RadTherm and HyperWorks
This was a 2013 European ATC presentation given by Antti Jussila from Thermoanalytics. Many automotive applications involve complex heat transfer in which all three modes (conduction, convection, and radiation) are important. The high thermal loads generated in these cases (e.g. engine waste heat, braking heat) can also cause thermal stress in the parts involved. Coupled thermal and structural analysis can be used to predict potential problems due to either material temperature thresholds or mechanical stresses.

This was a 2013 European ATC presentation given by Gérard Winkelmuller from Altair Development France. I will present some comparison of these formulations to analyze the strengths and the weakness of the different approaches. This evaluation will not only be based on classical comparison of these different formulations but will also analyze the interaction with other RADIOSS options

Numerical simulation of liquid sloshing and fluid-structure interaction (FSI) inside closed volumes
This was a 2013 European ATC presentation given by Ralf Euser from Femto.The presentation will have two different aspects. First, showing how to analyze the nonlinear sloshing motion of free-surface flows inside closed volumes, with respect to contact pressure and liquid height. In addition to this it will be demonstrated how to simulate real fluid-structure interaction (FSI) between liquids and solids.

Experimental and Numerical Simulation of Laser Driven Shock Waves in Water
This was a 2013 European ATC presentation given by Dr. Ekaterina Mazanchenko from ENSMA-PPRIME. In order to test the ability of RADIOSS code to simulate shock waves propagation into water and interaction of these shocks with materials, experiments were carried out using two modes of laser shocks driven into water. It was achieved by direct laser interaction on aluminum plate immerged into water and by laser acceleration of aluminum splashing then in water to generate the shock.

Rat brain injury mechanism identification through indentation experiment FE reconstruction
This was a 2013 European ATC presentation given by Dr. Daniel Baumgartner from University of Strasbourg. The rat head Finite Element Model of the Strasbourg University consists of three main features: a brain, a rigid skull and a layer of solid elements figuring the interface between the former two features. In order to simulate indentation, a cylinder was meshed and added to the original model. The lower part of the cylinder was positioned so as to match the position of the indentor in the experimental setup.
