Airlines and aircraft manufacturers are doing everything they can to lower their costs, including lightweighting every component possible, which can improve fuel efficiency. The industry spends more than a hundred billion dollars on fuel every year. While the price of oil is relatively low today, manufacturers and airlines must look ahead to the more than 25-year life span of the average airplane, assuming someday prices will rise again. Cost is a major driver, but the industry is also committed to reducing emissions during flight, and reducing fuel burn from the engine helps achieve this goal. Lightweighting, then, is one of the most important trends in the aerospace industry, and using composites, that can offer the required strength but at lower weight than metals, in manufacturing is a key strategy.

Simulating the future: Johannesburg – 22 May 2017 – GE Africa Innovation Centre (GE AIC) and Qfinsoft, ANSYS channel partner for South Africa, are collaborating to provide start-up companies and emerging enterprises with the opportunity to access the ANSYS’ multiphysics simulation portfolio, through a challenge, ‘Simulating the Future in Africa’, which will grant the winners one year’s free access to the ANSYS Startup Program.
The challenge aims to build a cohort of African startup companies and enterprises, who will design products and processes, using ANSYS software, that can be incorporated into the industries that GE operates in in Africa – industrial manufacturing, power, oil and gas, renewables, energy connections, transportation, mining, aviation, and healthcare.
ANSYS engineering simulation software enables users to design, build, modify and test complete virtual prototypes and bring their innovative products to market faster and more cost-effectively.
Entrants who qualify for the challenge will have access for one year to the multiphysics simulation portfolio within the ANSYS Startup Program – including structural, fluids and electromagnetics suites, and the ANSYS Customer Portal, which enables users to access online technical support, product tutorials, documentation and a technical support knowledge base
Latest release boosts design productivity and optimization
Released : 05/16/2017 PITTSBURGH, May 16, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Engineers can create next-generation products quicker and easier with today's release of ANSYS® 18.1. ANSYS (NASDAQ: ANSS) continues to build upon the digital exploration and digital prototyping capabilities released in ANSYS 18 – enabling organizations to simulate more upfront, limit costly late-stage design changes, and bring their innovative products to market faster and easier.
"Products are becoming smarter and organizations are adopting simulation across the entire lifecycle to digitally gain insight into product choices at every stage of the process – a growing trend we call pervasive engineering simulation. Our customers, large and small, are developing the products of tomorrow and they know that simulation is the only way to gain the engineering insight they need to make those products a reality," said Mark Hindsbo, ANSYS general manager. "This latest release continues the tradition of having the most complete and accurate solution portfolio in the industry, so our customers can trust the simulation results to conquer the toughest design challenges and accelerate product innovation. And to bring these capabilities to more and more users, enabling every engineer to use simulation in their product development."
Rocky 4 Achieves Major Breakthrough in DEM Computational Speeds with First Ever Multi-GPU Solver Capabilities
