Improving Screw Feeder Design
Screw feeders are extensively adopted in the food, plastics, mineral processing and agriculture industries as an efficient and economical method of bulk material handling.This online course will present how the Rocky DEM software, the state-of-the-art Discrete Element Method (DEM) solver, can help engineers adjust their designs and improve product quality control, as well as reduce power consumption and wear on their conveying equipment.
We developed ANSYS 17.0 with one vision in mind: to improve your engineering simulation experience and product development outcomes by a factor of 10, or 10x. Giving your design process 10 times the performance, 10 times the insight and 10 times the productivity — across all physics and simulation categories — will enable you to get your new products to market that much faster, with that much savings. This order-of-magnitude advantage in innovation, time-to-market, operational efficiency and product quality will leave your competitors far behind.

So you’ve identified that your Rocky DEM analysis could benefit from a more accurate particle shape. You say you have access to a sample particle and a 3D scanner? Excellent! So now what?
The office I work in recently received our own 3D laser scanner so I took it upon myself to test it out. After scouring the landscape around my building, I identified a rock that was “interesting” enough to suit my needs, in the sense that it accomplished all of the following feats:
– Wasn’t easily represented by the default shapes in Rocky.
– Contained some concave faces.
– Was flat enough on one side to sit on the scanner bed.
– Was a size appropriate for the scanner itself.
Pittsburgh – April 26, 2016 – ANSYS (NASDAQ: ANSS) has licensed its engineering simulation tools to ARM (LON: ARM; Nasdaq: ARMH), the world’s leading semiconductor intellectual property (IP) company for power efficiency, performance and reliability. The agreement will aid the ARM ecosystem and ARM® processor technology serving multiple markets including mobile computing, networking infrastructure, transportation and Internet of Things (IoT) pplications.
Modern electronic products require high performance and reliability as well as minimal power. This is accomplished by combining multiple sub-systems of an electronic product into one or more integrated circuits (IC) called a system on a chip (SoC). Minimizing power consumption and energy efficiency are critical design requirements for the Internet of Things (IoT) applications.
