Post Processing And CEI will give them to you FREE. With each new purchase of their EnSight visualization software, CEI is giving away a set of stereo viewing glasses and emitter.
"We're doing this to jump-start the use of stereo viewing, which can greatly enhance what you see and understand in high-end visualizations," says Kent Misegades, CEI president.
EnSight and EnSight Gold support stereo viewing on all UNIX, Linux and Windows platforms. So check out EnSight and go get yourself some cheap sunglasses.

Application: Cooling The London Coliseum

Application The London Coliseum was completed in 1904 and originally utilized plenum-style ventilation. Later, facilities were added to supply flow at the seating level and remove it at the ceiling. In 2000, cooling was added to the supply air.

Now, Arup is undertaking a complete redesign of the ventilation system. The new design will feature the more modern system of supplying cooling air at the ceiling and drawing it out at the seating levels. The three seating levels (dress circle, upper circle and balcony) complicated the design.

In order to optimize the airflow for maximum occupant comfort, Arup utilized CFD modeling of the coliseum.

The Future of Design Analysis (as ANSYS Sees It)
Posted Tue August 28, 2001 @06:30PM

News Paul Bemis, Vice President of Engineering at ANSYS, has written an article for Design News which looks into the future of engineering analysis and where it fits into the design cycle.

ANSYS got into the CFD game last year with the purchase of ICEM CFD so their views on the future have some implication for all CFD enthusiasts.

Bemis sees simulation occuring earlier in the design process, but at a reduced complexity spurred by the growth of application-specific GUIs. Another important prediction is continued expansion of web-based tools for sharing data. Bemis envisions a system in which no knowledge is lost from the early proof-of-concept stage through the final ready-for-production stage.

What's your view of the future of engineering analysis?

New Microfluidic Disposables Developed with CFD
Posted Mon August 27, 2001 @10:56AM
Print version Email story Tweet story
Application Microfluidic disposables for cellular and chemical detection (sometimes called "lab on a chip") are becoming popular as a way to simplify and speed medical analysis. The systems typically consist of a small (credit card sized) microfluidic device connected to a larger desktop-sized analysis unit. Micronics is developing a disposable total-analysis chip which can handle all of the analysis steps on a chip.

The new chips use a laminate design which permits construction of 3-dimensional microfluidic structures, such as, focusing channels for cell analysis. Micronics is using CFD for design and analysis of the focusing channels in order to determine the complete pressure and velocity fields and to predict the dimensions of the core stream.

The results and comparision with experiment are available in this pdf file.
