Print version Email story Tweet story
News The IITZeus Group of the Department of Aerospace Engineering, the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Bombay has launched a technical product, CFDTutor on 7th June 2003. This is tailor-made to suit pedagogical requirements in the analysis of fundamental fluid flow problems in engineering. It can also serve as a 'virtual laboratory' tool for institutions which cannot bear the expenses of a full aerodynamic experimental installation.

The product is the first commercial spin-off of pioneering research & development, spanning a whole decade, by the aforesaid group in the field of CFD. This is for the first time that IIT is venturing to offer its product in the market. The marketing will be handled by GNG India.

Events: CFD Meshing Seminar
Posted Thu June 19, 2003 @04:20PM

Grid Generation ICEM CFD will hold a free one day seminar on the ICEM CFD meshing tools. The semiar is scheduled for July 30, 2003 at the Royal Air Force Museum, Cosford, UK.

The seminar will cover the core ICEM CFD mesh generation tools as well as some new vertical applications such as ICEM CFD CART3D. The biggest advantage of the core meshing systems over existing tools is the ability to handle poor CAD data. ICEM CFD can mesh CAD with holes and overlaps as well as meshing over 'sliver surfaces'. In many cases, users can completely remove the 'CAD Clean-Up' phase from their process which reduces time and therefore costs.

To see the tools in action and have the opportunity to discuss your requirements in detail please register your interest as soon as possible as spaces are limited.

After the seminar there will be a tour of the Aerospace Museum that includes an extensive collection of WWII aircraft as well as a flight simulator.

Print version Email story Tweet story
ANSYS FLUENT Fluent Inc., world leader in computational fluid dynamics (CFD) software, and Qfinsoft Technology Inc. of Canada, announces the release of the latest version of the popular heat sink optimization software tool Qfin 3.0. This software is a part of the electronics cooling software suite from Fluent that includes Icepak 4.0 and Icepro 3.1. Qfin 3.0, an easy-to-use tool for designing optimized heat sinks, is sold exclusively by Fluent throughout the world. In the United States, Applied Thermal Technologies Inc., which is a sister company of Fluent, sells Qfin as a stand-alone product.

According to Dr. Jan Visser, President of Qfinsoft, Qfin has been developed as a heat sink design and optimization tool to cut the time and effort involved in designing optimized heat sinks. Along with a completely new design interface, a more advanced network solver that can solve multiple fans on the same heat sink, Qfins accuracy over a wide range of complex heat sink geometries has been improved.

CD-adapco CD adapco Group and LMS International invite you to a free aeroacoustics workshop, where we will present methods and tools that show you how to predict flow noise and simulate its propagation.

Aeroacoustics Workshop
July 9th, 2003
Coventry, UK

In collaboration with our industrial partners (OEMs, suppliers and consultants), our methods of analysis have been developed specifically for engineers who need to understand aeroacoustic effects in order to optimize their product design.

CD adapco Group's CFD software, STAR-CD is used to simulate the flow fields and compile equivalent acoustic sources. The coupling of STAR-CD with LMS International's SYSNOISE software allows noise propagation to be calculated for the near and far field.
