News Trends and Best Practice at the CAD/CFD Interface
24th November 2004, Coventry, UK

Rationale
CAD is an integral component of modern CFD and is the normal starting point for CFD analysis. Traditionally, the generation of CAD had been viewed as a separate upstream task to CFD analysis. However, this boundary has been blurred by the advent of CFD pre-processors that condition CAD prior to meshing, bringing “slimmed-down” CAD into the CFD arena. A more recent trend is for mainstream CAD to offer “slimmed-down” CFD. Thus the CAD/CFD interface is evolving rapidly and users have an array of strategies from which to choose.

This seminar aims to review the evolving CAD/CFD interface in order to identify basic strategies that are available to users and also to disseminate best practice. The seminar will examine the major trends within the industry. The issue of CAD will be viewed in a broad sense and will encompass a full range of inputs that are in the CFD process.

Objectives
  • Review the evolving interface between CAD and CFD
  • Identify industry trends and the alternative strategies that users can employ
  • Disseminate best practice

    Programme Topics

  • Examine the input requirements of the CFD process and the role of CAD
  • Examine CAD/CFD interface from the CFD arena
  • CAD as the output of the CFD process – linking CAD to CFD throughout the CFD process.
  • CAD/CFD integration and the emergence of “multi-physics” tools
  • CAD& FEA – Are there any learning points for the CFD community?

    Who should Attend
    Managers and engineers responsible for maintaining an existing CFD capability, or looking to develop a new CFD process.

    This seminar will permit you to keep up to date with developments at the CAD/CFD interface and review the available implementation strategies. This will:

  • Help to ensure that your existing CFD capability is up to date and effective
  • Help to plan the development of your CFD process
  • Help to design the implementation of a new CFD process
  • Help to keep up to date regarding the tools that are available and how best to use them.

    Attending the seminar will also permit attendees to meet other users from a range of industries and exchange ideas about best practice when dealing with the interaction between CAD and CFD.
