Hannover Messe Design engineering methods: Perfect programming

| Editor: Theresa Knell

With its “Ngsolve” software, Vienna TU offers a finite element tool equipped for even very complex simulation tasks.

With this newly developed planetary generator from the TU Vienna, step-up gears from low to high rotational speeds are said to be simpler, cheaper, and more effective.

Whether in crashtests or gasstream analysis, the wise man first turns to simulation software. With extensive calculation task, however, good results are only possible with well programmed tools, researchers at Vienna TU tell us.

With the help of the “Ngsolve” program packet, whose updated algorithms constantly reflect the latest state-of-the-art in mathematical research and which is optimised for efficient parallelisation and ideally suited to physically complicated multi-scale problems, the user will find he is always on the safe side. And in many cases, the researchers tell us, different physical effects mesh with each other: it is possible, for example, for electromagnetic and mechanical effects to be coupled, or for acoustic effects to interact with phenomena in fluid dynamics. They illustrate this with design engineering tasks in transformer laminations or crankshafts (photo). All can apparently be calculated quickly and precisely using “Ngsolve”.

“Ngsolve” is available free of charge, we are told. And the Vienna TU team, led by Prof. Dr. Joachim Schöberl, provides any necessary support to users applying “Ngsolve” methods to complicated tasks and desiring to combine them with their own tools. The software runs on all common platforms, such as Windows, MacOSX and Linux.
