EnginSoft Experience – part 1
November 18 | 14:30 - 15:30
Event organized by
A set of presentations, in two sessions, of six successful cases, selected to provide valuable inspiration for future developments in your specific field; these are prime examples of how simulation technologies can be exploited to their full potential.
This first session will be dedicated to Ansys technologies and will showcase three interesting examples concerning fluid dynamics, structural simulation, and electromagnetic simulation, respectively.
14:30 - 14:50

Digital Twin of a Mechanical Energy Recovering System
Flexible piezoelectric materials offer an efficient route to harvest energy from the fluid environments to power remote sensors and electronics. The proposed system allows electrical power generation by energy harvesting from vortex induced vibrations from the fluid flow of the exhaust gas of a Diesel car by a flexible Aluminum Nitride-based device.
The aim of the work is to describe a Simulation Based Digital Twin (SBDT) of an Internet of Things (IoT) node consisting of a piezoelectric MEMS, remote gas sensor and a transmitter. The methodology used for system model development consists of five principal steps: system conceptualization, numerical model definition, numerical models’ reduction, multi-domain model integration and calibration.

Thermal and EMC Analysis on a Smart Latch ECU
In this speech the methodology for the numerical characterization of a Smart Latch ECU is presented, through the use of the Ansys Electronics AEDT Suite. DC/AC Electro-Thermal Analysis were conducted on the printed circuit board (PCB). CISPR 25 conducted emissions compliance was investigated in operational conditions while driving a DC Motor.

Fabio Villa, EnginSoft
Optimisation of flow filed in a Street Sweeper
The suction system of a street sweeper is studied by a CFD simulation in Ansys Fluent. Different approach to model porous and membrane are presented in this talk. The capability to visualize the 3d velocity field, and the evaluation of pressure drop in different section of the system, help the designer to find a new efficient solution.
Ph.D Fabio Villa is currently working for EnginSoft (Kilometro Rosso Innovation District - BERGAMO ITALY). He is a Senior Project Engineer with a solid background in thermal and fluid-dynamic engineering. He is dealing with CFD simulation Engineering consultancy and Technical support for CAD/CAE simulation (Ansys CFD) with Fluent Ansys. He has a good experience on reactive flow simulation in single and multiphase flow.
