Ozen Engineering Newsletter – December 2015


Message from your ANSYS Channel Partner

metinR17 is coming! It will actually arrive at the end of January but we are all going through internal R17 training right now. From what it looks and sounds, it will be the best version of ANSYS! Speaking for myself, I can’t wait to get my hands on it. There are hundreds of new features on the “Mechanical” products and similarly on “Fluids” as well as “Electronics” software products. I should also mention new features with respect to solid modeling and meshing. We will hold seminars/webinars (What’s New in R17?) to inform you about all the new features. Currently, we are taking “a deep dive” to learn all these new features in depth. In addition, packaging of “Mechanical” products is changing; we are contacting all our current customers and making appointments to talk about the new packages. If you have not heard from us, please feel free to contact us to make an appointment so that we can explain all the new packages (ANSYS is going from 11 to 5 products on the Mechanical side). Just to express our state of mind; the other day, on LinkedIn, I noticed one quote from Mario Andretti (world champion racing driver); “If everything is under control, you are not going fast enough!”. I thought that this quote explains why it feels like I am losing control of new versions, new features because ANSYS is really accelerating with the products and opening up the distance even further from any other competition. So, if you are using ANSYS software products, the best is yet to come. If you are not an ANSYS user, please contact me to see how we can get you on board. It is indeed exciting times! Have a great and safe Holiday Season! Thank you for making 2015 the best year for all of us at Ozen Engineering, Inc.!

Message from the Sales Manager

We’d like to save you some money!


We have been very busy visiting our customers for the past several weeks to present the new ANSYS R17 pricing and packaging. We would like to thank those customers who proactively upgraded to the new ANSYS Mechanical or Multiphysics packages prior to 2016 when the prices will be increased. We still have a few more weeks remaining and I’d like to urge our customers and ANSYS users to contact me to learn about the new R17 packages and how they will affect their existing ANSYS assets.

If you are planning to upgrade your existing products or purchase new ANSYS Mechanical or Multiphysics products, you still have a few more weeks left before the end of year to take advantage of lower prices ! We will actively reach out to our customers to set up appointments to discuss the migration options to R17 new packages.

Tech Tip

Meshing Ease-Of-Use Features

chrisGenerate a high-quality mesh more quickly by understanding your geometry.  ANSYS Meshing ease-of-use features are displayed by right-clicking on “Mesh” in the model tree, then selecting “Show” from the pop-up window.TechTipDec1

Various options are available to highlight geometry depending on the type of analysis and model conditions:

Sweepable Bodies & Mappable Faces (optimal meshing methods)

Program Controlled Inflation Surfaces (preview automatic fluid boundary layer inflation)

Overlapping Named Selections & Contact Regions (to resolve Fluent errors)

Removable Loops (automatically defeature holes in surfaces)

Also note… in case you encounter a meshing failure associated with geometry, right-click on the error in the Messages Window to “Show problematic geometry”.  This feature assists troubleshooting by highlighting geometry corresponding to the source of the error.

Please contact Chris (Cowan@ozeninc.com) with any questions.

Tech Tip

Wireless Power Transfer using ANSYS Electromagnetic

In recent years, Wireless Chargers have drawn a lot of attention.  This technology can be applied to electronic devices such as mobile devices, laptops, and electric vehicles charging systems. The common methods for wireless chargers are Near-Field (inductive coupling and magnetic resonance) and Far-Field (resonance and microwave). For Wireless Power Transfer (WPT), ANSYS solution offers ANSYS Maxwell or ANSYS HFSS for Electromagnetic (EM) field analysis and ANSYS Simplorer or ANSYS Designer for circuit/system designs.  In the following model, Maxwell is used for EM field analysis and Simplorer for circuit analysis to design the WPT from a coil to another coil based on magnetic inductive coupling. The design workflow for magnetic solver (Maxwell) and circuit/system simulator (Simplorer) would be the following chart:


 The Magnetic induction is directly linked with the mutual inductance between transmitter and receiver coils, which decays as the inverse cube of separation distance. The typical engineering challenges for this design include coil size and shape, number of turns, saturation, self and mutual inductance, AC resistance, frequency response, loss evaluation, and efficiency.

Lunch & Learn – ANSYS SpaceClaim Direct Modeler

December 9th, 2015 11:30AM – 1:00PM (lunch provided)

Join us for this upcoming lunch & learn event featuring ANSYS SpaceClaim Direct Modeler!

ANSYS SpaceClaim

ANSYS SpaceClaim is a CAD neutral tool that enables you to quickly and easily manipulate geometry yourself, instead of sending it back to the CAD department. Using SpaceClaim, CAE drives product innovation and development from the start of the design process to accelerate time to analysis and increase efficiencies in product design/production.

(Lunch will be provided for in-house attendees)

Upon completion of this event, attendees are eligible to receive a 14-day evaluation license.

Lunch & Learn – ANSYS ACT

December 16th, 2015 11:30AM – 1:00PM (lunch provided)

Join us for this upcoming lunch & learn event featuring ANSYS ACT!ACT_Pic


ANSYS ACT is available as part of the ANSYS Customization Suite product, which also includes the Workbench Software Development Kit. Some organizations choose to customize their ANSYS simulation environment to capture analysts’ expertise and know-how as well as give non-expert users access to advanced models. Improving the efficiency of simulation engineers is another benefit of customization, as complex in-house processes can easily be exposed and standardized for daily use.

During this session we will show several examples of how to use ANSYS ACT to customize the Mechanical interface within ANSYS Workbench.


Upon completion of this event, attendees are eligible to receive a 14-day evaluation license.
