News techman wrote in with this AMD 64bit computing news:

AMD has announced the availability of AMD Core Math Library (ACML) version 2.0, an advanced tool that allows software developers to further exploit the large memory space and ground-breaking performance enhancements offered by the AMD64 architecture.

ACML 2.0 provides an expanded feature set, optimization of existing features and improved performance. Developers using ACML 2.0 can achieve greater code accuracy and speed of delivery while maximizing performance and functionality of x86-based applications running on 32-bit Windows and 32- and 64-bit Linux operating systems. ACML 2.0 also helps build the foundation for the Windows software developer in preparation for 64-bit capable Windows availability.

Announcements NAFEMS, the International Association for the Engineering Analysis Community, are holding their latest seminar in Warrington, UK, on April 22nd 2004, focusing on the Business Benefits of Engineering Simulation.

Simulation, typically by finite element analysis (FEA) or computational fluid dynamics (CFD), is well established in many engineering companies for product and process development. Tasks such as optimising products and manufacturing processes by simulation are now well proven.

Nevertheless, there remains a large number of companies who are either not getting the best return from their investment in simulation technology, or are still considering investing in the technology.

The seminar will include presentations on:

  • How you can increase market share
  • An overview of managing the design process
  • Guidance on the availability of grants and other funding options
  • A review of the history of finite element analysis
  • A number of case studies
You will receive answers to questions such as:
  • How will simulation change my product design process?
  • How can I assess if my product or process will be suitable for simulation?
  • How will I train my staff?
  • How much will I need to invest?
  • Can I receive funding for the investment from grants or other sources?
  • What difference will the technology make to my business?
  • How will I assess the return on my investment?

News The CD adapco Group has announced that it has become a Spatial CAA V5 Adopter and will create two new CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) 'add-ins', STAR-CAT5 and Comet-CAT5, designed to bring the benefit of advanced CFD technology to users of CATIA V5.

Michael Dickens, CD adapco Group's Director of Business Development explains: "We have developed tightly integrated CFD 'ad-ins' that facilitate parametric design studies through enhanced automation and bi-directional associativity between CAD and CFD models. We are particularly interested in delivering this technology to CATIA V5 users since market research has placed this environment as the preferred choice among our clients as their CAD system for the future."

Keith Mountain, Vice President of Marketing, for Spatial adds, We are pleased to have CD adapco Group as a CAA V5 Adopter. Their experience in the CFD arena is a welcome addition to the increasing number of solutions available to the CATIA V5 user community.

Help Desk m_anil writes "Im M.Anil, doing M.Tech Chemical, IIT, Roorkee, India. Im new is to the field of CFD, Im doing my thesis on CFD of three phase bubble column using CFX-5.6, Im getting satisfactory results for velocity profile and volume fraction but pressure profile is coming wrong ie; pressure at inlet is lower than pressure at outlet. My system is air ,water and glass beads. At inlet boundary ie sparger Im specifying velocities and at outlet boundary Im specifying as degassing condition. Im also considering buoyancy in vertical direction as g (-9.81 m/s2). So can anyone suggest what is the problem in this? My email id is
