Print version Email story Tweet story
News COSMOS/Flow, the CFD package from Structural Research & Analysis Corp, has been certified for UGS' Solid Edge Version 10. Embedded in Solid Edge and featuring an easy to use Windows-native interface, COSMOS/Flow is fully associative with Solid Edge Version 10.
"The COSMOS/ suite of analysis products is perfect for Solid Edge users who need to perform stress, flow or electromagnetic simulation, but don't have the time to learn three different analysis programs. With COSMOS/ software, all analysis is done within the same easy to use interface, dramatically reducing the learning curve and speeding up productivity." says Suchit Jain, VP of Marketing for SRAC.

News AEA Technology has announced that they will be porting their CFX-5 CFD software to HP's Intel Itanium platform. The work will be done for the HP-UXi 64-bit operating system.
“CFX sees great performance potential for this technology. HP is a leader in developing IA-64 with Intel and we expect that their support of HP-UX11i on their new Itanium platforms will give CFX customers a stable and very fast simulation platform for running CFX-5. In keeping with the advanced CFD technology employed in CFX-5, CFX wants to ensure that our customers can make use of this promising new computer architecture as soon as possible” commented Dr. Michael Raw, Vice President CFX Product Development.
The Intel Itanium processor is designed to scale to 512 processors and features 64-bit memory addressing which will enable engineers to tackle much large problems than possible on 32-bit machines.

FEATURE: How Multigrid Solver Acceleration Works
Posted Fri November 30, 2001 @05:59PM
Print version Email story Tweet story
Solver We've got a new feature article cooked up on the multigrid acceleration method which is used by most of the commercial CFD codes today.
However, iterative solvers, while memory efficient, are notoriously slow. The multigrid acceleration technique speeds up iterative solvers tremendously allowing for realistic CFD models which otherwise would not be feasible on today's computers.
The article explains the pitfalls of iterative solvers and how the multigrid method achieves its remarkable results.

Read this article and others in the Features Section.
