I hope SimScale is the best to carry out simulation
Substitute “hope” with “know” and I am with you Welcome to SimScale! Let us know if you have any questions or ideas that you would like to share with the community.
i am nana yaw
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!
We actually have a workshop for biomedical engineering that you can found here in case you want to test some simulations: Biomedical Engineering Workshop.
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)
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!
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.
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!
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!
All the best and enjoy your stay here,

I’ve been so busy working on small little projects that I never officially introduced myself. My name is Bryce and I come from a background in both Mechanical and Aeronautical Engineering. I graduated in 2004 from Purdue University with a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering and completed a Master of Science in Mechanical engineering in 2009 from Purdue as well. I spent the first twelve years of my career doing computational analysis on aircraft before finding my dream job with the Hendrick Motorsports NASCAR team as an aerodynamics engineer. Looking forward to doing some fun side projects on SimScale and I’m here to answer any questions someone might have.
It is great to having you here.
Very glad to have you on board Bryce - welcome to our SimScale family Enjoy your stay here and of course welcome as a new PowerUser!
All the best!
Hi, I’m Victor Gama based in Brussels and Sintra and working in the design of new musical instruments, I’m mainly interested in frequency analysis but also interested in static and CFD. I’ve been using FEA analysis for quite some time but I’m really excited to have found SimScale as it looks like a big jump in workflow and efficiency of simulations. As I am starting I already have some questions and one of which is has to do with choosing boundary conditions.
Hi @vgama and a warm welcome to our SimScale community!
Thanks for being part of our community! To get started please have a look at the following resources:
The “Get Started Tutorials”
Some random tutorials in general
Learning by doing with the SimScale Workshops
The documentation of SimScale
If you have a specific question about boundary conditions either create a new post in the correct section or use the forum’s search function. Maybe you can find a similar thread that will help you out.
