. Ansys Sherlock - Agenda
Project Overview
Ansys Sherlock organizes design files, inputs and analysis results as "Project Folders" that can be managed inside of the Sherlock application and shared between Sherlock users.
This workshop shows you how to import a Sherlock project and provides an overview of the various files and displays associated with a project.
ODB++ Project Creation

ODB++ archives consist of a standard collection of folders and data files used to describe almost everything needed to design and analyze circuit cards.
As such, they represent the easiest method for creating a Sherlock project. In fact, Sherlock is capable of automatically scanning the archive looking for all the data that is required for analysis purposes.
This lesson is dedicated importing a project from an ODB++ archive (or ODB XML archive).
Reviewing Part Properties

Even if Sherlock successfully imports all the data from CAD file, it is still very important to review all of the components in the Parts List to ensure that the information is accurate. Many properties contained in CAD files are simply passed along as whatever string values were entered by the user.
Sometimes those values are correct and sometimes not. Since PCB designers and manufacturers don't always use those properties, they may not be maintained properly.
Layer Viewer

The Parts List contains lots of details that are best displayed in tabular form and processed using tabbed forms, but circuit cards are intrinsically graphical, as are the analysis results associated with them. As such Ansys Sherlock provides a sophisticated Layer Viewer with a collection of graphical tools that can be used to review, analyze and update circuit card information. This section describes how the Layer Viewer can be used to review and modify the circuit card information imported directly from CAD files in preparation for analysis.
Analyzing reliability risks of PCBs with ANSYS Sherlock
In this tutorial, we will learn to analyze mechanical reliability risks of PCBs with several components using ANSYS Sherlock. We will analyze a PCB assembly comprising a six-layer board and hundreds of parts.
The objective of this analysis is to ascertain that the PCB design meets the target goal of less than 20% probability of failure in its service life of 10 years.

View trace in PCB, View metal fractions.
Maxwell and Icepak Multiphysics in AEDT
This workshop demonstrates how Ohmic losses can be transferred from Maxwell to Icepak in ANSYS Electronics Desktop using 2-Way Coupling
It involves an eddy current solver of Maxwell to calculate heat losses which are then applied to Icepak to simulate natural convection.

Title: Use of digital twins for efficient water utilities operations: examples of real-time leakage reduction and energy efficiency optimization
Summary: The EU recovery funds is setting ambitious goals and business outcomes for the European water companies to improve services to customers and the environment. The workshop will feature examples of how professionals from water utilities companies including the consulting ecosystem are currently utilizing digital twin’s analytic capabilities for asset performance modelling of water, sewer and drainage systems, reducing water losses and energy consumption, emergency response to services interruptions, demand management, and other efficiency-related topics.
The first part of the workshop addresses the efficiency trends in the water utilities industry, followed up by a brief description of the business benefits that can be realized from digital twins’ analytical capabilities to improve asset performance addressing these key efficiency topics. Second part of the workshop describes several water utilities case studies with the business outcomes: (i) how to use GIS data, hydraulic models and SCADA data to build digital twins; (ii) use of digital twins’ analytical capabilities coupled with hydraulic modelling to find and locate leakages hotspots in real-time and (iii) data-driven analytics applied to wastewater treatment plants to reduce energy consumption, chemicals, and carbon footprint.

. Bentley OpenPlant - Agenda

Title: Complete design cycle for Process Plant


During this session attendees will be able to go through the steps of the complete Plant design phase.

We will play the main roles of the design workflows – Project Manager (reviewing the design), Process Engineer (taking care of the PID diagram), Mechanical Engineer (maintaining the 3D model).

We will start from reviewing the draft of the PID diagram, creating markup to request a change and sending it back to the process Engineer,

As Process Engineer we will review the markup, adjust the diagram accordingly and report that back.

As Mechanical Engineer we will re-use process data from the PID diagram during modeling.

We will run the clash detection to make sure the multidiscipline model is clash free.

We will generate the deliverables and share them with all relevant project stakeholders.

Presenter: Jaroslaw Sitek, Application Engineer Team Manager - Plant EMEA

Duration: 4 hours
