Business: Icepak Software is Hot in a Cold Market
Posted Thu May 15, 2003 @01:02PM
Print version Email story Tweet story
ANSYS FLUENT In an economy where negative growth is all-too-normal, Fluent Incorporated reports dramatic and sustained growth in its computational fluid dynamics software products, particularly its Icepak™ software for desktop simulation of electronics cooling. Icepak, which entered the electronics cooling software market 7 years ago, grew its total revenue by 19% and thermal software license revenue by 12% in 2002 worldwide. In the first five years of its existence, its annualized growth was 60%. The software revenue in the first quarter of 2003 grew by 15% over the same period last year.

Swimming Upstream

How has this software achieved such robust growth while serving an industry in a downturn? "Thermal modeling in the design process is relatively new, and as its benefits have been seen more clearly amongst electronics designers, it has naturally become a 'must-have' tool on the designer's desktop, so some of this is driven by the growth curve of thermal modeling as a technology," says Prabhu Sathyamurthy, Icepak Business Manager for Fluent.

New Software: CFD Plug-Ins for Pro/ENGINEER
Posted Tue May 13, 2003 @03:03PM
Print version Email story Tweet story
CD-adapco The CD adapco Group has announced the release of its new products, STAR-Pro/E and Comet-Pro/E, which provide a choice of CFD solvers as plug-ins for Pro/ENGINEER systems for the very first time.

STAR-Pro/E & Comet-Pro/E are highly capable plug-ins, developed to meet the demands of product engineers for a single CAD and CFD solution that can speed product development, cut costs and improve product design. With tight integration of CFD with CAD, parametric design studies are made easier through enhanced automation and bi-directional communication between CAD and CFD models.

The advantage of both choices is that they enable model setup, calculation and result evaluation to be completely integrated within the Pro/ENGINEER environment. Engineers who are familiar with CAD will therefore find adding CFD to existing models easy and intuitive, since boundary conditions and fluid properties are simply entered within the familiar Pro/ENGINEER GUI environment.
