Welcome! - Introduce yourself :)

I found SimScale via my favorite YouTube channel, the B1M (the definitive channel for construction). Their video is sponsored by SimScale and they showed a simulation starring the super skinny high rise towers of Billionaires Row in New York. It was absolutely fascinating. I am also going to study civil engineering next year (starting in just over a month). Basically SimScale looks like a brilliant platform to “play” on and learn at the same time.

At the moment I am researching green building methods - especially focusing on rebuilding residential structures after disasters (fire, tsunami, hurricane etc).

My expectations? To LEARN! I’ll soak up any information anyone is willing to share.

Hi Andi! Very nice to see what impact the video has on its audience :slight_smile:

Feel free to check out the resource I posted above and reach out to me whenever you need help.

Cheers,

Hello Everyone! I’m Jeeventh from Malaysia. I’m currently a Master’s by Research student in Mechanical Engineering . My research is based on heat transfer using Nanofluids in Photovoltaic thermal system. Hence, I’m planning to use SimScale to simulate my model. Appreciate if you guys could help me complete my MSc. Thank Yo All and All the very best. BTW, Happy New Year To All!!

Hi @jkubenthiran and welcome to SimScale! AAEAAQAAAAAAAAO1AAAAJGRhNTc1ZWI0LTU0NjAtNDlhYS1iMjQzLWEzZDEyMjcwNGVhNQ

About your project: You are able to use heat transfer modules on SimScale - however nanofluids are not part of the modules but I am sure we can make some simplifications here to get a rough estimate of its behavior to simulate your model.

All the best and happy new year to you as well!

Thanks alot!! :smile:

I can select any fluids and modify their thermophysical properties to match nanofluids right?


#409

Yes @jkubenthiran :slight_smile:

Cheers,

Hi,

Deepak here from UK.

I’m into analytics & AI primarily. Though, I’ve studied CAD/CAM in my college days.

I hope to learn from others and possible participate in useful discussions and challenges.

Hi Deepak and welcome to our forum!

Looking forward to learn from you and see you participating in interesting discussions :slight_smile:

Cheers and happy SimScaling!

Hello,
My name is Feng SHAN. I am an acoustic engineer in China. I noticed that a GPU-accelerated LBM solver was released by SimScale. I am wondering how much closer it is to the engineering applications, and if there is any possibility to couple it with a FEM solver for two-way FSI problems.
Best,
Feng


#413

Hi Feng and welcome to SimScale!

Coupling LBM with a FEM solver is absolutely no problem and can definitely be implemented. Feel free to add your idea in this section along with a description of what cases you want to investigate: Feature Request.

Thanks and happy SimScaling!

I hope SimScale is the best to carry out simulation


#415

Hi @paulnyoike!

Substitute “hope” with “know” and I am with you :wink: Welcome to SimScale! Let us know if you have any questions or ideas that you would like to share with the community.

Happy SimScaling!

i am nana yaw
from ghana
currently in all nations university college offering biomedical engineering
and i have loved to develop an aspirator as my project and i will like to get support.

Hi @naboagye and welcome to SimScale! AAEAAQAAAAAAAAO1AAAAJGRhNTc1ZWI0LTU0NjAtNDlhYS1iMjQzLWEzZDEyMjcwNGVhNQ

We actually have a workshop for biomedical engineering that you can found here in case you want to test some simulations: Biomedical Engineering Workshop.

Happy SimScaling!

Hi, my name is Richard Sauter, I’m from NYC, but I’m living in Bali at present. I’m here to find help in predicting the performance characteristics of a rigid side hull, captured air bubble (CAB) catamaran otherwise referred to as an SES (surface effect ship)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W3wUPicbgg8

The SES 100B was a scaled down 100’, 100 ton prototype of what was intended to be the fastest 3,000 ton 500’ vessel ever built. It proved everything it was supposed to prove and clearly demonstrated the feasibility of it being scaled up to a 3000 tons , however the feasibility of scaling the SES100B down from 100’ to a 60’ surface effect craft that could do 80knts was not investigated.

In short that’s what my project is focused on doing with scale models and computer simulations

My main objective is to determine the waterjet propulsion power required for this 16m SES to reach a top speed of 80knts

I’m here to find someone who is capable of making that determination from CFD analysis. My own experience is limited to scale models and full size prototype wind tunnel testing. SauterCarbonOffsetDesign.com

Hi Richard and welcome to SimScale! AAEAAQAAAAAAAAO1AAAAJGRhNTc1ZWI0LTU0NjAtNDlhYS1iMjQzLWEzZDEyMjcwNGVhNQ

That looks like a very interesting project that you can definitely investigate some of the objectives you mentioned using our platform. I would have a look at 6 DOF simulation projects as this one right here: Wake Development of a Boat. For the propulsion system we can use the so called AMI or MRF approach. For the speed we can use a result and investigate the momentum/torque. We have to make sure though that a transformation into the local coordinates takes place to get the actual torque from the propulsion system. You can open a new section in the Project Support section and either one of the PowerUsers or someone from the SimScale staff will jump in to help you out.

Looking forward to see some first results on this!

Hi, My name is Sumit Kumar, working in Indian Institute of Technology Delhi, India. I have keen interest in the CFD field. I am experienced in ANSYS, COMSOL platforms but new here in SimScale. Hopefully this platform will offer something extra.

hoping to be familiar with this platform soon.

Hello Everyone,
I have been working as an HVAC specialist at Toros Sogutma Cihazları company for one year. I graduated from Yildiz Technical University in January 2019 and I started the Master of Science Program in YTU Mechanical Engineering Heat-Process Division in February 2019.
I study in Romania at one semester with the scope of the Erasmus program and at that time I visited a few Europe country such as Germany, Hungary, Holland, Ukraine etc.
In my thesis, I studied with Ansys CFD program to find the increasing solutions the heat transfer efficiency in the wire-on-tube condenser. In the last year of my university, I worked in the HVAC sector and gained proficiency in mechanical installation design and drawing (Autocad), As-build, a progress payment, and filtration systems.
I still continue to work in the same company as I mentioned before.
In addition, During my university education, I took an active role in the Chamber of Mechanical Engineers and I played football in local clubs, now I am interested in CFD simulation, HVAC Design, Air Filtration system, Mechanical installation. Football, philosophy, and history continue to be my hobby.

Hi Huseyin and welcome to SimScale! :slight_smile:

Looks that you have quite a lot of experience in the field of HVAC so I am really looking forward to show us something using our platform and maybe help others that are struggling to set up their simulation. Happy to have you on board! :slight_smile:

All the best and enjoy your stay here,
