Ozen Engineering Newsletter – November 2015


Message from your ANSYS Channel Partner

metinAs we are heading into November, there are more exciting news planned for the ANSYS users in version 17. At this point in time, our staff is getting trained on R17 and then we will have seminar/webinars to pass the new information on to you. One of the most exciting news is the new product packaging that I can briefly talk about: on the structural side ANSYS currently has 11 products, and with R17, the number of products will be reduced to 5. The specialized modules will be bundled into the new products. This will enable ANSYS users to use more technology and get more productivity from their ANSYS simulations. We are planning on calling and making appointments with our clients to introduce the new product bundles. So, you will be hearing from us and we hope that you will be able to put aside some time for our presentation of these new and exciting ANSYS products and technology. Thank you for your business and we look forward to visiting you in the next couple months. In the meantime, please feel free to contact me if I can be of help with your ANSYS software products. Have a great November!

Hot Events in November!

caseyANSYS R17 is around the corner and will be released in January 2016. There is going to be a new packaging and pricing for ANSYS Mechanical products with significant new capabilities that we think it is important for all our customers to learn about. We will continue to visit our customers to introduce the exciting new ANSYS bundles for the remainder of 2015 to ensure that the transition to the new product portfolios are as smooth as possible.

Also we have two exciting Lunch & Learns scheduled this month. One is High Frequency Electromagnetics using ANSYS HFSS on November 18th, 2015 and the other is a relatively new workshop which is focused on CFD applications for mixing to be held on November 11th, 2015. This is an important application for pharmaceutical, biomed and chemical industries. Attendees will learn about the common design challenges such as ensuring high efficiency by minimizing blend time and identifying the optimum compromise between high agitation and micro-organisms preservation via exposure analysis. Please take a few minutes to watch this video about mixing analysis.

We are looking forward to seeing you!

(Regular/Anti/Linear Periodic) Symmetry in Mechanical

Are you seeing the patterns in your model that allow you to cut your model size in half or even more? Taking advantage of symmetry is one of the best ways to make your models more efficient and there are several different types available in the Mechanical application. If you don’t see a Symmetry object in your tree you can select the Model object and press the Symmetry button on the toolbar to insert it. If you right click here and insert a Symmetry Region, you have access to three different types of symmetry:
Symmetry: The most common type of symmetry, applicable to when you have a mirror image of both geometry and boundary conditions. Try to use more than one symmetry plane for quarter or even 1/8th symmetry if possible! The constraints on a symmetry surface are analogous to the Friction-less Support boundary condition.ToM_Oct2015_2
Anti-Symmetry: A less common type of symmetry but still a big help if it can be applied. When you have a mirror image as far as the geometry is concerned but loads that perfectly oppose each other not in the perpendicular direction of the plane of symmetry. The supports at the symmetry plane are analogous to the Symmetry supports, except the degrees of freedom restrained rotationally are restrained translationally and vice-versa.
Linear Periodic: Another common symmetry type for when you have several repeating cells. There are actually two ‘symmetry surfaces’ involved here and constraint equations are used to have both ends of the linear periodic region have matching deformation. With R16, thermal and thermal-electric analysis are supported, in addition to structural.

Antenna Design for Medical Implants

Engineering simulations help healthcare and biomedical industries to accelerate their product development. Medical implants that transmit/receive data wirelessly need antenna designs. ANSYS HFSS offers very advanced features for miniaturized antenna and their matching circuit designs. The Medical Implant Communication Services (MICS) band ranging from 402 to 405 MHz is designated band by American Federal Communications Commission (FCC) for implantable devices. With HFSS, implant antennas and their matching circuits can be designed. ANSYS offers detailed human-body models which work well with HFSS. Therefore, antenna performance can be optimized when implanted in the body model. The Simulation results can be evaluated and optimized for resonance frequency, reflection coefficient, radiation characteristic, Effective Radiated Power (ERP), and Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) of the antenna embedded in the body model. For more information, please visit our website:

ANSYS Hot Topics!

OEI Asked: “Why did you learn ANSYS”

benAt Ozen Engineering we often ask our guests to share their reasons for wanting to learn ANSYS. We hear many reasons but the most common theme is simply ongoing professional development. No matter what career field we’re involved in, continuing your education is arguably the only way to stay up-to-date with today’s fast paced industry. At Ozen Engineering we are committed to being a resource for enriching the engineering community and ensuring that our colleagues remain competitive on the front lines of innovation.

It is a well-known fact that engineers are some of the most educated and bright individuals in the world today. We believe that by continuing to learning new skills and new tools you are able to unleash your inner genius to the fullest extent!

We all want the products of our imagination to become a reality sooner than later, and we believe ANSYS and engineers make that possible. While nearly every university in the United States is using ANSYS and teaching students the skills needed to enter the workforce, we knew that to be truly successful and competitive we needed to offer you something you can’t receive anywhere else. Our ANSYS training courses go beyond the basic curriculum to include comprehensive and tailored modules to maximize your learning experience with industry relevant examples and exercises.

Our classes fill up fast and we insist that our colleagues remain to be the most valuable assets in the workforce!

Lunch & Learn – ANSYS CFD & Mixing

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

ANSYS CFD (Fluent and CFX) software contains the broad physical modeling capabilities needed to model mixing and bio-reactor behavior.

CFD is of great value to overcome mixing design challenges because CFD can perform blend times and exposure analysis. Due to the complexity of mixing tanks and bioreactors geometries (impellers, shafts, baffles, sparger, etc.) performing CFD analysis can be seen as complex.

ANSYS computational fluid dynamics offers a solution to this challenge: a fully automated solution where engineers input the mixing tank geometric parameters and operating conditions – the complete design analysis is then performed automatically and a summary report is created so engineers can access all key parameters related to blend time and exposure analysis.

Join us for this lunch & learn event as we discuss applications of ANSYS CFD and how it can improve your products!

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