Using CFD and AI to Help Increase the Safety of Driverless Cars
Posted Mon July 15, 2019 @10:59AM
Print version Email story Tweet story
Application Pointwise has published the case study Using CFD to Help Increase the Safety of Driverless Cars based on research done at Cranfield University. The research is the first numerical study of its kind and provides a basis for future CFD studies and ongoing development of AI for autonomous vehicles.

CFD Modeling Holds Potential for Wind Plant Improvements
Posted Thu June 06, 2019 @09:39AM
Print version Email story Tweet story
Application Researchers at Sandia National Laboratories (Sandia) and National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) are using cutting-edge national supercomputing resources to develop an open-source computational fluid dynamics (CFD) code that simulates wind plants with greater accuracy than previously possible.

Balancing Meshing Time with Solution Accuracy
Posted Tue April 09, 2019 @10:56AM
Print version Email story Tweet story
Application In 1963, Craig Breedlove set the world land-speed record in the Spirit of America, a record that he would later reclaim several more times in the next two years. Fifty years later, Breedlove has decided that it is time to bring the title back to America. In a new team led by Breedlove, the Spirit of America is being revived with the goal of once again claiming a new world record for land-speed vehicles.

Historically, land-speed vehicles were shaped by rule of thumb aerodynamics. However in the 50 years since the first turbojet vehicle officially set a land-speed record, computational fluid dynamics (CFD) has matured to a point where it can be inexpensively used to help simulate performance characteristics on such vehicles.

CFD Used to Develop Propeller With Reduced Underwater Radiated Noise
Posted Wed April 03, 2019 @02:48AM
Print version Email story Tweet story
Application Large cargo ships routinely have Underwater Radiated Noise (URN) signatures from their propellers of 150dB+, louder than jet engine take-off noise. Oscar Marine has developed a new propeller design which reduces URN by between to 17dB and 21dB (an over 100 times reduction in noise power) in the frequency range most damaging to marine fauna.

Rimac C_Two Hypercar Aerodynamics Development Leverages CFD
Posted Mon December 03, 2018 @06:30PM
Print version Email story Tweet story
Application The development of the Rimac C_Two all-electric hypercar presents unique aerodynamic design opportunities and challenges due to the absence of an IC engine.

The internal aerodynamics team started the development based on early design concepts, developing from a closed body in 2D, moving to the 3D analysis, using CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamic) simulations and refining the status constantly.

Hydrodynamic Design of a Turbocharger Pump and Turbine
Posted Sun October 14, 2018 @01:46PM
Print version Email story Tweet story
Application A recent ADT blog posting discusses how ADT designed a turbocharger system including both pump and turbine using the 3D inverse design approach available through the TURBOdesign Suite software and achieved 5 points improvement in efficiency.
