The Future of Making Things with Simulation

by Nigel Ambayec on Feb 1, 2017

James Herzing has been a part of the Autodesk Simulation team since 2009 and understands the rapid evolution of simulation. From generative design to event simulation, Autodesk is changing the way engineers design and make things.

In this recap of Autodesk Virtual Academy, you'll learn how Simulation solutions now allow you to lighten your design, optimize flow, and reduce failure. Let’s take a look at some new introductions previously thought impossible.

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.

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.
