Autodesk Virtual Academy: Simulation with Autodesk CFD

by Nigel Ambayec on Nov 1, 2016

Autodesk CFD provides computational fluid dynamics and thermal simulation tools so you and your team can more easily predict product performance, optimize designs, and validate your product behavior prior to prototyping and manufacturing.

This recap of a recent Autodesk Virtual Academy session features James Neville - a simulation expert with a specialty in CFD at Autodesk.

How to Prevent Your Computer From Automatically Rebooting

by Chris Fisichella on Sep 23, 2015

The simulation tools offered by Autodesk are comprehensive and will allow you to solve many interesting problems. The solutions to some of these problems sometimes take many hours to solve. One of the barriers to reaching a successful conclusion is the tendency for Windows to restart your computer without checking in with you first. For example, NASTRAN In-CAD, Autodesk Simulation Mechanical, Autodesk Moldflow, and Autodesk CFD all keep a great deal of information in volatile memory. When the power is cut, the information is lost and your simulation is lost along with it. To prevent this from happening, you can certainly search the web like I did. A good search term is “how to prevent windows 7 from restarting automatically.” If you don’t have time, or have no idea what the forums are talking about, you can use this guide to help you. This procedure applies to Windows 7 Professional.

Getting Gas Field Development Right the First Time

An area of difficulty in oil and gas exploration is in determining the production of a gas field. A section view of such a field is shown in Figure 1. It was originally published on Wikipedia. The gas is often trapped in small pockets deep below the earth’s surface. Hydraulic fracturing is used in these fields to connect the small gas pockets together. Water is pumped into the well and is pressurized to the point so that it creates small cracks that form a network between the pockets. The network emanates from the drill bore to a finite extent in the surrounding gas field. I was reading this interesting article on the Shell Corporation website last week and thought a very good tool that could be used to both characterize the performance of a fracturing operation and predict the performance of future fracturing operations is Autodesk CFD 2016.
