EnginSoft and the European Space Agency investigate hydroponic plant growth for future space missions

EnginSoft has been collaborating with the European Space Agency (ESA) for the past ten years, working actively in the MELiSSA program. At present, this project’s main efforts concern the life support system sector and the idea of creating an artificially closed ecosystem that generates food and oxygen for space crews on longterm missions. The current […]

Flow field optimization of a medical device

CAE is highly effective for product optimization. In this technical article, we describe how a hybrid method of computational fluid dynamics analysis was used to enhance the design of a medical device to improve its ability to maintain a stable microclimate around a patient, but also to reduce both the computational efforts and the time […]

Design and Analysis of Chain Drives made easy by RecurDyn Multi-Body Software

Chain models are among the largest and most complex that can be simulated with multi-body technology. First, depending on the chain length, the number of moving bodies could become remarkable. Second, contacts disturb the solution all over the chain, causing continuous impulsive excitation of the mechanism. Third, chain links are bodies with reduced inertia, whose […]

Dana’s Use of a New Validated Approach for Advanced Design of Powertrain

Dana Incorporated is a valued automotive powertrain supplier because of the capabilities and value of their products. The Advanced Methods group at the Dana Technical Center looked for innovative technology that can be used in the engineering and design process for their products. In 2015, they evaluated the ability of Particleworks to predict the accumulation […]

Boat Hull Design with CFD

Starting from April 2018, the LincoSim web application was opened to three groups of industrial partners involved in the LINCOLN project and it has been massively used to support the design process of innovative vessels by means of automatic CFD runs. The preliminary statistical results in terms of usability and robustness are really encouraging. Hundreds […]

Transmission Oil Lubrication CFD Analsyis

Introduction of Particlesworks into Univance Corporation Oil has various important roles in lubrication, cooling, buffering and air tightness, whereas it causes torque loss for its flow resistance. For that reason, enough considerations and arguments are necessary for deciding conditions of oil physical property and quantity, and shape optimization. Therefore there was a requirement in Univance […]

CFD study to optimize the cooling performance of a narrow specialty tractor

Constant demand for improved engine performance has led to an increase in the heat fluxes through vehicle cooling systems, pushing their design to the limit. In agricultural vehicles, especially in specialty tractors where the hood design is very tight, this cooling problem is compounded: the low vehicle speed, higher operating temperatures and the dirty environment […]
