Episode 088: Taking Simulation To The Moon

May 17, 2021

In this episode your host and Co-Founder of PADT, Eric Miller is joined by Tyler Smith and Connor Nail from the ASU Luminosity Lab to talk about their recent presentation at Ansys Simulation World 2021. A team of students at the ASU Luminosity Lab was awarded funding from NASA to develop a system for exploration of the permanently shadowed regions of the lunar poles.

Through this project titled VELOS (Variable Exploratory Lunar Observation System) the team designed, built, and conducted proof-of-concept testing to successfully validate operation of their prototype system. Learn how Ansys helped make their success possible.

Episode 084 - The State of Mechanical Meshing in Ansys 2021

Episode 084 - The State of Mechanical Meshing in Ansys 2021

March 22, 2021

In this episode your host and Co-Founder of PADT, Eric Miller is joined by PADT's Senior Mechanical Engineer and Lead Trainer, Joe Woodward in order to discuss what new mechanical meshing capabilities are available in Ansys 2021. 

Meshing is an integral part of the engineering simulation process where complex geometries are divided into simple elements that can be used as discrete local approximations of the larger domain. The mesh influences the accuracy, convergence and speed of the simulation. Furthermore, since meshing typically consumes a significant portion of the time it takes to get simulation results, the better and more automated the meshing tools, the faster and more accurate the solution.
