Print version Email story Tweet story
Application The University of Wyoming and Intelligent Light are performing unsteady CFD on full wind farms with terrain features.

Intelligent Light's Earl Duque and Univ. of Wyoming researchers Prof. Dimitri Mavriplis, Michael Brazell and Andrew Kirby were able to model wind farms in unique ways. Using the Cheyenne supercomputer at the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR)-Wyoming Supercomputer Alliance.

Print version Email story Tweet story
Application DAMEN and Numeca are developing a CFD methodology to demonstrate a vessel has sufficient transversal stability to resist over-rolling in severe side winds.

IMO regulation 749.18, 'Severe wind and rolling criterion (weather criterion)', ensures a vessel has sufficient transversal stability to resist over-rolling in severe side winds.

Print version Email story Tweet story
Application Acoustophoretic particle focusing is a modern and very attractive method of removing a variety of objects from solutions in a microfluidic channel. The process is applicable to healthcare applications (e.g., malignant cell removal), academic research (e.g., nanoparticle separation), industrial applications (e.g., reclaiming of rare earths) and environmental applications (e.g., sequestration of suspended solids) to name but a few.

Role of CFD in Designing Efficient Fuel Injection Systems
Posted Mon August 14, 2017 @06:38PM
Print version Email story Tweet story
Application Driven by the need for more cleaner, environment friendly vehicles to abide by stricter government regulations, it is imperative for automakers worldwide to make cars more fuel efficient and less polluting. Auto companies are forced to embrace the concept of "downsizing" – building increasingly small, compact, yet powerful engines.

The AeroGust Project - Aeroelastic Gust Modelling
Posted Tue July 18, 2017 @06:26AM
Print version Email story Tweet story
Application A key element in the design of an aircraft is to make sure it can cope with the stresses arising from the impact of strong winds on the plane’s structure. Calculating the way the aircraft reacts to gusts and turbulences is essential knowledge before a plane can be built.

Currently most of the data concerning gusts is gathered during expensive wind tunnel experiments and rather late in the design process, when design options have already been narrowed down a lot.
