Continuous Inkjet Printing
Posted Mon May 22, 2017 @11:11AM
Print version Email story Tweet story
Application Continuous inkjet printing is an established technology that has been around for 150 years. Simply put, it is a method of droplet generation where once the print head is running there is a continuous stream of fluid.

A Flow Science blog post discusses the physics behind continuous inkjet printing, followed by the FLOW-3D simulation studies conducted by Ioannis H. Karampelas, CFD Engineer at Flow Science.

Application Capvidia has used their FlowVision CFD software to model blood flow as part of the SIMULIA Living Heart Human Model.

The Living Heart Project is a research initiative to develop and validate highly accurate digital simulation models of the human heart, for use by researchers, educators, medical device developers, regulatory agencies, and practicing cardiologists. One of the initiative’s first, and most valuable, products is the SIMULIA Living Heart Human Model, a dynamic, anatomically detailed, finite-element (FE) model, representing the electrical and physical behavior of a four-chamber heart, with a simplified fluid (blood) model capable of representing dynamic pressure/volume changes in intra- and extra-cardiac circulation.

Application Microfluidic particle sorting has applications in diagnostics, chemical and biological analyses, food and chemical processing as well as environmental assessment.

In a previous Flow Science blog article, we discussed microfluidics particle sorting using hydrodynamics. Building on the same topic, we will talk about another method of micro particle sorting - this time, using gravity.

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.

BMW M4 DTM Design Through CFD
Posted Fri March 31, 2017 @09:36AM
Print version Email story Tweet story
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.
