  • Simulations of a Truck Crashing Into a Reinforced Concrete Wall

    Kiewit Corporation, a diverse company specializing in construction, mining, oil, gas, power, transportation, and water projects, was contracted to design a boundary wall around a large electrical switching station. One of the requirements of the design was to prevent a medium duty truck from penetrating through the wall, as detailed in the crash test specifications of ASTM F2656-07. Kiewit contacted CAE Associates to request dynamic structural analyses to simulate the wall impact events for two different wall designs at different impact angles and locations.

  • Optimization of a Test Rig Platform

    Mechanical Solutions Incorporated designed a platform for testing axial fans at different speeds. The platform was designed to avoid any natural frequencies within the test speed range of the fans. A number of design iterations were required until a design was proposed that could satisfy the frequency criteria (safety margin from major excitation sources) without creating an excessively large and heavy structure.

  • Static Mixer Fatigue Life Assessment with ANSYS Mechanical

    The Norsea Gas Terminal in Northern Germany plays a vital role in the connection of pipeline systems coming from the North Sea to the natural gas distribution network throughout Germany. Built in 1977, the terminal was set to be replaced in 2015 by the GASSCO Emden terminal being built by Linde Engineering to ensure the continued safe and reliable delivery of natural gas to the region.

  • Driving Value with ANSYS and CAE Associates

    An overview of the advantages of implementing a Simulation-Driven product development process, and how ANSYS and CAE Associates work together to provide you with the best combination of

  • The Fall and Rise of Adam - ANSYS Advantage Article

    This article appeared in Volume IX, Issue 3 of ANSYS Advantage magazine in October 2015.  Written by Michael Bak and Patrick Cunningham of CAE Associates, along with Carolyn Riccardelli of The Metropolitan Museum of Art, it details the years-long reconstruction of Tullio's Adam after the statue fell from its pedestal in 2002 and shattered into hundreds of fragements.  CAE Associates performed finite element analysis using ANSYS Mechanical software to ensure that novel conservation methods could be applied to  preserve as much of
