Pythons in CFD?

Posted by Mark Decker on Jul 18, 2018 9:00:00 AM

No, I am not referring to the invasive species of snake that is currently wreaking havoc in the Everglades of southern Florida.  Rather, the focus of this post is the popular scripting language known as Python.

How Manufacturers Reduce Unplanned Downtime with Simulation Software

Posted by SimulationNation on Mar 26, 2018 9:46:50 AM

We at Hagerman know unplanned downtime can be a major issue in manufacturing plant operations, and simulation software plays a significant role in reducing its negative effects. Before we get into how, though, we want to take a close look at what some firms are facing with downtime.

Simulation Success: Safelumin

Posted by SimulationNation on Feb 19, 2018 10:40:00 AM

 

Safelumin has developed an LED emergency light that is packaged in the form of a regular shaped light bulb. The Safelumin bulb is equipped with a rechargeable lithium-ion battery that is rated to provide up to 3 hours of emergency light during a power outage. Safelumin’s patented power sensing technology is smart and knows the difference between purposely turning off the light switch and suffering a power failure.

8 Must-Have Applications for Effective Simulations In Architectural Design

Posted by SimulationNation on Jan 25, 2018 3:30:00 PM

The advance in building technologies means professionals working in the architectural design industry have many moving parts to consider and coordinate.

To validate how a proposed design for a building would perform, you need to understand how all the systems interact and work together under a variety of real-world scenarios.

Degrees of Freedom – Mixing Solid, Shell and Line Elements in Nastran In-CAD

Posted by Robert Smith on Jan 22, 2018 9:16:19 AM

What are “Degrees of Freedom” when working with FEA models and why do they matter? If you're new to FEA, this is a good concept to get a grasp of early on. If you are experienced, you may not have ever run into any problems related to degree of freedom limitations in finite elements – or maybe you have and just didn’t know it.
