Across many industries, manufacturing companies, original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), and original equipment suppliers (OESs) worldwide need to increase their engineering capabilities in order to meet the growing demand for new technologies and products. Engineering offices, whether they are specialized in a singular field or multiple areas, are experiencing increasing pressure related to quality, performance, and time of delivery, as product lifecycles across industries become shorter. Specialized in industrial equipment, turbomachinery, automotive, aerospace, and many others industries, engineering firms are working with SimScale to virtually test their designs and deliver the best quality to their customers.
The engineering office Dr. Heiser is using the SimScale platform to investigate design changes of an existing radial fan with fluid flow simulation. Getting accurate data on the pressure increase and the power consumption of their new fan design, the engineers were able to verify that the product would meet the expected performance characteristics.
