Dynamic modeling of a mine shaft lift conveyance

Mine conveyance systems are essential for transporting equipment and personnel deep underground via vertical shafts which can be in excess of 1km deep. The shaft that the conveyance systems run in are required to perform a multitude of functions including housing the main conveyance system, supplying fresh air to the workers underground and as an umbilical cord providing water and electricity services from the surface.

Using Optimate and STAR-CCM+ to #BringTheCupHome

Land Rover BAR are on a quest to Bring The Cup Home; a challenge to win the 35th America's Cup from the Defenders and bring it home to Britain where it all started in 1851. In the push to develop the fastest foiling, flying multihull, the latest cutting edge technology must be used. This includes using Optimate to run many different STAR-CCM+® simulations to drive the design towards an optimum set up for a range of conditions.

Deicing system advances by ice accretion modeling

Ice accretion on aircraft can cause major problems including loss of lift and incorrect measurements of flight speed. In the past, these events have in some cases led to aircraft crashing. While numerous anti-icing and de-icing technologies exist, each system currently available is unable to achieve all the properties that aircraft designers desire.
