Fluent Offers Remote Simulation Facility
Posted Tue July 02, 2002 @06:45PM
Print version Email story Tweet story
News FLUENT 6 is now available for use in a secure portal from the Internet. Using the new Fluent Remote Simulation Facility, existing users can take advantage of "supercomputer" capacity for the execution of large or complex simulations.

The new Fluent Simulation Portal provides for fully secure 128 bit encrypted SSL service that is monitored and available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. This new capability is an excellent choice for existing FLUENT users who require occasional "surge capacity" for time-critical simulations, for the throughput of many jobs with varying parameters, or for periodic simulations of large models.

The Fluent Remote Simulation Facility assumes the user is an existing Fluent license holder. Models are created using a "local" Fluent pre-processor, and case/data files are then uploaded to the remote site. The facility provides all necessary components to perform the simulations including parameter set-up, file storage and management, all licenses required to operate, and access to multiple processors to improve time to completion. Accounts are provided on an individual user basis, and users are billed for simulation time only.

Grid Generation ICEM CFD has added Catia V5 native CAD support to their HEXA mesh generator.

ICEM CFD Hexa CAA V5 runs as a plug-in application within CATIA V5. This application allows the user to create hexahedral volume meshes within CATIA V5. The ICEM CFD Hexa meshing set-up, mesh size, family definitions are defined with the ICEM CFD toolbar. These meshing specifications as well as the resulting ICEM CFD Hexa mesh are stored within the CATIA V5 Analysis document. Users can make changes to the original design and the mesh can be regenerated based on the stored mesh set-up data.

To use the HEXA CATIA V5 software, you must have a CATIA V5 license for ME2.

News Fluent has released version 4.0 of its Icepak electronics cooling simulation software. The newest version of Icepak delivers the industry's fastest time-to-solution through its combination of non-conformal meshing and unstructured meshing strategies, including assembly meshing. These technologies let the designer build a more computationally-efficient and accurate model faster than any other thermal management software package.

According to Icepak Product Manager Dr. Rajesh Nair, "Icepak 4.0's new 'Assembly Meshing' retains geometric shape fidelity, improves accuracy by maintaining model detail, reduces mesh counts by 20-70%, and decreases solution time, design time and project costs."
