"To remain competitive in the offshore oil and wind energy industries, leaders are continuously looking for better solutions to engineering problems," said Dr. Farzin Shakib, Founder and President of ACUSIM Software, Inc. "CFD, HPC and visualization are gaining increased importance in both of these industries. We've designed this conference to offer engineers, executives and researchers further details about the right CFD, HPC and visualization tools to allow for maximum energy efficiency and improved performance."

The offshore oil and the wind energy industries are among the world's fastest-growing industries in demand of precise engineering solutions. By using advanced CFD solutions, engineers are able to increase the efficiency of oil production by helping to conceive and validate design changes that once were limiting elements, as well as reducing downtime for offshore oil and gas production platforms. For wind turbine engineers and designers, CFD solutions are allowing users to maximize energy efficiency, improve aerodynamic and structural performance, increase aero-elasticity for stronger and lighter structures, improve acoustic performance and select sites on land and sea.

Featured keynote speakers and customer presenters include:

  • Dr. Lyle Finn, CTO of Horton Deepwater Development System
  • Dr. Owen Oakley, Research Consultant of Chevron Energy Technology Company
  • Dr. Samuel Holmes, President of Red Wing Engineering, Inc.
  • Dr. Donald Birx, Vice Chancellor & VP, Division of Research, GM of The Lone Star Wind Alliance, University of Houston System
  • Dr. Earl Duque, Manager of the Applied Research Group, Intelligent Light & Associate Research Professor at Northern Arizona University
  • Dr. Farzin Shakib, Founder and President of ACUSIM Software, Inc.

Event Details
ACUSIM Energy Day is taking place from 7:45 am to 5:15 pm, Thurs., Nov. 6, 2008, at the Microsoft Houston Office located at: One Briar Lake Plaza, 2000 W. Sam Houston Pkwy. S. #350, Houston, TX. To register, please visit: For complete event details and agenda, visit ACUSIM Energy Day.
