Print version Email story Tweet story
News Fluent recently hosted the European Automotive CFD Conference (EACC) in Bingen, Germany, bringing together applied CFD engineers from across Europe. This event, the first of its kind, allowed engineers to share their experiences of using FLUENT CFD for design within the automotive industry.

Twenty papers were presented at the event representing a broad range of automotive CFD applications from aerodynamics to paint spraying. A Conference Proceedings CD has been produced which includes PDF files of all the papers presented at the event plus the best animation seen over the two days. Fluent is offering the Conference Proceedings CD for free.

This is a limited offer, so visit us online to request your free CD now.

News Fluent Inc., world leader in computational fluid dynamics (CFD) software is partnering with Concepts NREC and Engineous Software to offer a Lunch ’n Learn Seminar on the Design, Analysis and Optimization of Turbomachinery, Tuesday, October 7, from 9 a.m to 3 p.m., in Southfield, MI.

The seminar is an excellent opportunity for designers, analysts and managers to see how off the shelf software from Concepts NREC, Fluent and Engineous can be used to build a complete simulation-based design system for turbomachinery. The morning session will include a live demonstration of the Agile Engineering Design System, EASy! For Pumps, focused on the design of an automotive water cooling pump.

The demonstration will employ the iSIGHT integration and optimization tool to determine an optimum impeller blade shape and the embedded FLUENT CFD volute module to analyze and optimize the volute geometry. In addition to hydraulics, geometrical constraints and low-cost manufacturing issues will be included in the design exercise. The design approach that will be presented is applicable to all classes of turbomachinery including pumps, fans and turbochargers.

For more information and to register for this free seminar, visit Fluent at

Print version Email story Tweet story
Hardware techman writes "AMD has released and Opteron Model 146 for 1P workstations and Opteron Model 846 for 4- to 8-way-capable servers , both at 2GHz.

The AMD Opteron processor is based on AMD’s eighth-generation processor core, which marked the introduction of AMD64, the industry’s first 64-bit, x86 technology implementation. This technology preserves companies’ investments in 32-bit applications, while allowing a seamless transition to 64-bit computing as those companies require. The AMD Opteron processor is designed to deliver high-performance server and workstation solutions for today’s most demanding enterprise applications. The processor is scalable, reliable and compatible, which can result in lower total cost of ownership. Key AMD Opteron processor innovations include an integrated memory controller, which reduces memory bottlenecks, and HyperTransport technology, which increases overall performance by removing or reducing I/O bottlenecks, increasing bandwidth and reducing latency.
