Modeling Airflow through intake manifold

ANSYS Fluent on UberCloud and Microsoft Azure

The design of the intake manifold is one of the key factors determining performance of a spark ignition engine. A complex simulation framework is required to model the flow characteristics. But finer mesh densities usually means longer simulation runtime. With ANSYS Cloud and the UberCloud on-demand HPC environment, the team could generate highly accurate results predictions in a short period of time and determine the optimal tradeoffs.


You'll Learn:

  • How to access the UberCloud HPC environment in the cloud with no need to install or configure any software or hardware.

  • How model generation in ANSYS Workbench in the HPC cloud computing environment is better than a workstation.

  • How ANSYS Fluent works on the UberCloud HPC platform to dramatically reduce processing time for fine mesh sizes resulting in accurate simulations. 


This document is based on one of the more than 200 technical case studies conducted by engineering teams in the UberCloud Experiment. You will benefit from the candid descriptions of the problems the teams encountered, how they solved them, and get valuable lessons learned.
