Print version Email story Tweet story
Post Processing CEI's EnSight Gold has been selected as one of the top 10 products of 2001 by IEEE Computer Graphics & Applications, a worldwide trade publication serving the computer graphics industry.

EnSight Gold is the high performance version of the company's post-processor EnSight. EnSight Gold is designed to take advantage of parallel processing and virtual reality environments, such as CAVEs, RAVEs, and ImmersaDesks.

The new features within EnSight Gold allow users to visualize datasets of a size barely imaginable just a few years ago.

News CFDRC is offering two application specific modeling courses.

Fuel Cell Multiphysics Course
February 12-13, 2002
Huntsville, AL
This course will discuss the Theory and Solution Strategies for current state-of-the-art modeling and simulation techniques for Fuel Cells and Fuel Reformers. Utilizing relevant examples from the industry, the instructors will demonstrate the value of simulations and discuss the assumptions made, along with their inherent limitations.

Biomedical Seminar
February 6, 2002
Anaheim, CA
This seminar will feature demonstrations of how the CFD-ACE+ software can be applied to biomedical device modeling. Sample cases of hybridization, microdispenser, lab-on-a-chip and system level simulation, as well as parametric simulations of DNA filtration chips will be shown.

News The CD adapco Group, developer of the leading CFD software STAR-CD, has released the latest productivity tool in its range of Expert System programs. The new product, called "esIce", automates the sophisticated moving mesh technology required for engine simulation.

The esIce tool produces an automatically meshed parameterised template, which can be altered for specific engine configurations. The idea is to empower engineers as never before to achieve rapid, accurate CFD analysis of internal combustion engines of all types.

Steve MacDonald, chief executive of the CD adapco Group said: "CFD is entering a new phase. Our clients want technology built into tools that are customised to solve particular engineering problems. Our Expert System tool, esIce, is the fruit of hundreds of man-years experience of engine simulation. This breakthrough will enable engineers quickly to evaluate and optimise new internal combustion engine designs".

Wildcat II 5000 Review
Posted Tue January 22, 2002 @06:57PM
Print version Email story Tweet story
Hardware The Wildcat II 5110 from 3Dlabs is widely regarded as the best 3D OpenGL PC graphics card on the market today. Unfortunately, the card is only available as an expensive option when buying a machine from a few vendors. The Wildcat II 5000 does retail through standard channels however and it features a lot of the power of it's bigger brother at a reasonable price tag.

Cadalyst has a review of the Wildcat II 5000 in which they compare the performance of the two cards. From the results, it looks as if the Wildcat II 5000 is a good price/performance compromise.
