## Digital Debunking: Could a Penny Dropped Off the Top of the Empire State Building Actually Kill You?

You’ve probably heard the story – if you throw a penny from a skyscraper, it might bury itself in the concrete or even kill an unsuspecting bystander below. The open-air observation deck of the Empire State Building in New York …

## Introducing HyperWorks 2019: Simplify Product Development Complexity

For manufacturers and product developers in all industries, the ultimate goal is to create better products faster in the most cost-efficient manner. The challenges of product development are more complex than ever. In order to design and optimize the connected, …

## Modeling March Madness Part 2: Spin vs. No Spin

The myth goes like this: A shot with no backspin will hit the rim and then tragically bounce away with no chance of going in. In contrast, the magic of spinning somehow slows the ball down during the impact(s) and …

## Modeling March Madness: Simulating a 3-Point Shot

With March Madness beginning today (US college basketball tournament), I was asked to create a basketball simulation, so here we go! Let’s try a three-pointer with backspin from 8 meters. It hits the back board a bit low and off …

Is it possible to study and optimize the performance of a badminton racquet through simulation? Is it art or science to design a racquet?   Would it be possible to reuse knowledge from other simulation disciplines and apply them on …

## ATCx Russia – Presenting the Efficient Use of Multiphysics Solutions

When I arrived in St. Petersburg for the 2nd ATCx Russia on November 30th I immediately realized that winter in Russia is full of colorful lights, big Christmas trees, snow, cold and darkness. But of course, I was not there …

## Thought Leader Thursday: How Can CAE Engineers Use Multiphysics in the Engineering Design Process?

According to Wikipedia, “Multiphysics is a computational discipline which treats simulations that involve multiple physical models or multiple simultaneous physical phenomena.  For example, combining chemical kinetics and fluid mechanics or combining finite elements with molecular dynamics. Multiphysics typically involves solving coupled systems of partial differential equations.” What does this imply for …

## Slingshot Topples Cans: Simulated in RADIOSS, Visualized and Rendered in Evolve

As CAE engineers, we are proud of how we manage to tame the laws of nature in our models, but let’s face it – not everyone shares our passion for complex meshed models in sixty-four colors, cluttered with multi-point constraint …

## Thought Leader Thursday: Were Your Results also Due Yesterday? Computation Speed up using Multi-Domains Method

For an engineer, getting the simulation results as soon as the finite element model is ready would be the perfect scenario. Today, crash analysis still needs large computation time. In the RADIOSS team we understand the need to speed up …
