How to simulate industrial designs for multi-physics applications

Opera is a suite of multi-physics analysis programs that includes electromagnetics, stress and thermal analysis. To highlight the main points that make it suitable for industrial designs: Opera includes an easy-to-use 3D Modeller, allowing models to be created or imported -in a wide variety of standard CAD formats; Scripting in the Modeller makes it a [...] Posted in Charged Particle Devices,CPD Papers,How to...,Induction Welding

EUGM 2017: Recent developments to Opera’s magnetron sputter simulation tool

Presenter: Applications engineer, Opera Software Abstract: Sputter coating is widely used for the fabrication of thin films in a highly diverse range of applications - from decorative and low emissivity coat­ings on glass, through to deposition on circuits and engineering coating on products used in some of today’s most demanding applications. Of the many different [...] Posted in Charged Particle Devices,General,Induction Welding

Webinar: Multi-physics simulations for industrial applications using Opera-3d

In this webinar we demonstrate several multi-physics cases and show Opera-3d's capabilities for industrial applications. We present several models including a beam defining mask for proton accelerator, an induction heating bath for melting solid conducting materials, a superconducting coil system and associated support and cooling, as well as simulation of the induction welding process for carbon-fibre-reinforced plastic [...] Posted in Induction Welding

Induction Welding of Composite Materials

Joining together of composite materials like Carbon Fibre Reinforced Polymer (CFRP) is an important technological problem in many applications. Due to its high strength-to-weight ratio, CFRP is increasingly widely used in aerospace, automotive, civil engineering, consumer products and other industries. As the number of applications increases, it becomes necessary for every new case to optimise […]
