A Scientist and a Supercomputer Re-Create a Tornado
Posted Wed April 12, 2017 @04:21PM
Print version Email story Tweet story
Application With tornado season fast approaching or already underway in vulnerable states throughout the U.S., new supercomputer simulations are giving meteorologists unprecedented insight into the structure of monstrous thunderstorms and tornadoes. One such recent simulation recreates a tornado-producing supercell thunderstorm that left a path of destruction over the central Great Plains in 2011.

The person behind that simulation is Leigh Orf, a scientist with the Cooperative Institute for Meteorological Satellite Studies (CIMSS) at the University of Wisconsin–Madison.

Application BMWBLOG has posted BMW M4 DTM: a detailed look at computational fluid dynamics describing the use of CFD in the development of BMW's entry in the Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters (DTM) touring car series.

When the six new BMW M4 DTMs take their place on the grid for the DTM season-opener on 6th May 2017, it will mark the temporary end of a long and intense period of development. A considerable part of this development took place with the aid of computer simulations.

Print version Email story Tweet story
Application Microfluidic particle sorting has applications in diagnostics, chemical and biological analyses, food and chemical processing as well as environmental assessment. The main advantage of using microfluidic sorting platforms is the requirement of smaller sample volumes which, in turn, results in reduced costs and time.

The Effect of Turbulence Modeling on Dynamic Urban Wind Simulation
Posted Wed March 15, 2017 @03:02PM
Print version Email story Tweet story
Application Rheologic has posted a case study on the effects of turbulence modeling on dynamic urban wind simulation.

Wind in urban environments impacts on a number of issues from local microclimate, to energy use for heating and cooling, facility performance (HVAC), rents (arcades, outdoor dining areas) and in the future possibly UAV delivery routes. While steady-state simulations that cover the average wind velocity are very helpful, looking at the dynamic behaviour can sometimes be critical.

Print version Email story Tweet story
Application Grundfos are one of the world’s leading pump manufacturers for circulators, heating and air-conditioning as well as other centrifugal pumps. They have been a pioneer in utilizing computer aided engineering (CAE) in their design, development and manufacturing process for pumps and motors.

Grundfos have been using an integrated CAE and design system with ANSYS/CFX for structural and fluid flow analysis and TURBOdesign1 for hydrodynamic design.

Application by Faizal Yusuf, M.A.Sc., P.Eng.
Specialist Engineer in the Hydrotechnical Department at BC Hydro

BC Hydro, a public electric utility in British Columbia, uses FLOW-3D to investigate complex hydraulics issues at several existing dams and to assist in the design and optimization of proposed facilities.

Faizal Yusuf, M.A.Sc., P.Eng., Specialist Engineer in the Hydrotechnical department at BC Hydro, presents three case studies that highlight the application of FLOW-3D to different types of spillways and the importance of reliable prototype or physical hydraulic model data for numerical model calibration.
