Replacing physical testing with virtual simulation using Ansys Maxwell, MDS and Granta Selector

In a collaborative research and development project with Ansys, TWI together with InnoTecUK’s support, designed and developed an ATEX- compliant encoder to achieve accurate distance readings, safety, and life cycle requirements. InnoTecUK demonstrated the encoder on a submersible robot intended for in-service bottom plate thickness inspection of hazardous oil storage tanks
