Fluent Inc., the world's leading Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) software provider, announces that its newest release, FLUENT 6.0, has won a Tech 2002 award from Automotive Engineering International Magazine (http://www.sae.org/automag/techawards/2002/page3. htm).
These Awards are presented to the suppliers of the top automotive products and technologies showcased at the SAE 2002 World Congress as voted for by the 40,000 visitors to the show. SAE 2002 is a showcase for the products, services, and technologies available to the global automotive community. The SAE World Congress is the largest original equipment (OE) parts, components and service exhibition in the world.
The newly released FLUENT 6, which is built on Fluent Inc.'s core unstructured CFD technology platform, expands Fluent's industry standard for CFD automotive applications to include deicing and water runoff, fuel tank studies, HVAC systems and components, painting, and flow-induced noise. Major enhancements in turbomachinery modeling and underhood thermal analysis also provide economical design testing options for automotive engineers. A moving/deforming mesh capability, released in beta form with this version, is one of many building blocks in the release intended to tackle challenging IC engine modeling.
