New Software: ANSYS Announces CFX-TurboGrid 2.1
Posted Tue March 04, 2003 @11:11AM
Print version Email story Tweet story
ANSYS CFX ANSYS Inc. (NASDAQ: ANSS), a global innovator of simulation software and technologies designed to optimize product development processes, today announced the release of CFX-TurboGrid(tm) version 2.1 featuring new technology developed by recently acquired CFX, a leader in computational fluid dynamics (CFD) software and services for turbomachinery. CFX-TurboGrid 2.1 provides analysts of rotating machinery with the mesh creation tool required to increase productivity and optimize design. CFX-TurboGrid uses newly developed technology to create a high-quality hexahedral mesh while preserving the underlying geometry, allowing for accurate and fast CFD analysis. New automated functions further simplify the grid-generation step in the analysis process.

As part of the CFX system of integrated software for turbomachinery applications which includes CFX-5(tm), CFX-TASCflow(tm) and CFX-BladeGen(tm), earlier versions of CFX-TurboGrid serves more than 250 users worldwide in more than 150 companies. Grid generation is a key element in CFD analysis, particularly in the exacting turbomachinery field. High-quality grids are required to generate the accurate results needed to compare performance simulation of multiple designs. In industries where meeting rigorous specifications is paramount and small increases in efficiency can lead to millions of dollars profit, CFX-TurboGrid is a software tool that provides fast turnaround of the grid-generation process to ensure maximum utility from the CFD analysis process.

Visualization: Immersive 3D Visualization Under Linux
Posted Tue February 25, 2003 @06:07PM
Print version Email story Tweet story
Hardware Fakespace Systems, makers of immersive visualization environments, and Xi Graphics, makers of hardware graphics drivers for the Linux OS, have teamed to develop a new software driver that enables stereoscopic immersive environments to run on the Linux platform.

Now Fakespace visualization systems that incorporate digital projection technology, such as the CAVE®, RAVE II™, WorkWall™, and ImmersaDesk®, can run Linux-based applications using off-the-shelf graphics cards.

"The demand for Linux-based software applications in the government and education sectors is growing," said Steve Fine, vice president of engineering at Fakespace Systems. "By teaming with XiG, we are able to provide a complete solution for engineers and researchers using Linux applications to solve complex problems using the world's most advanced visualization systems."
