Permanent Magnet Motors in Direct-Drive Applications
Features 1/11/2011 Post a comment Cooling towers are common systems design applications for a variety of facilities. Investigating such an application helps clarify how recent advances in motor technology allow for replacement of the gearbox, NEMA motor, driveshaft, and disc couplings with a permanent magnet motor.
Researchers working with additive manufacturing have said multimaterial techniques will allow industry “to fabricate materials with combinations of density, strength, and thermal expansion that do not exist [yet].”
The term "multiphysics" is used to describe the simulation of multiple types of physics and their influence on one another -- for example, the investigation of the behavior of a chemical in liquid form will involve both chemistry and fluid dynamics.
