Application: Reducing Infiltration Through Cold Store Entrances
Posted Tue May 11, 2004 @10:52AM

Application By Alan Foster,
Food Refrigeration and Process Engineering Research Centre (FRPERC),
University of Bristol, UK

Ingress of warm moist air during cold-store door opening is a major issue in refrigeration plants, as it increases energy consumption and can also cause an undesirable rise in product temperature. Moisture infiltration itself can produce food safety problems in chill stores and can jeopardize personnel safety in frozen stores as the moisture turns to ice.

The British Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) has commissioned the University of Bristol (FRPERC) to look at this problem in partnership with Anglo Dutch Meats (UK) Ltd; ACS&T Wolverhampton Ltd., Thermoscreens Ltd., Northern Foods Plc and Ballymoney Foods Ltd. The aim of the project, which is part of the LINK programme, is to reduce infiltration through doorways and thereby reduce the effects on temperature control, safety and energy consumption.

Print version Email story Tweet story
News Flowmaster & Fluent announce a free half day workshop focussing on the simulation of engine cooling systems.

This half day workshop is aimed at engineers and engineering managers responsible for system level and component level design decisions.

The workshop will take place on the 18th of May in Detroit. A keynote presentation will be given by Ken Singh, Aero & Fluid dynamics manager, DaimlerChrysler, on the need to co-simulate between 1D & 3D CFD for engine cooling system design.

Following the keynote presentation will be technical sessions on Flowmaster and Fluent capabilities for engine cooling system design and a demonstration of a co-simulation case study of an engine water jacket.

Places are limited so to reserve a place contact Sudhi Uppuluri on 001 734 779 1898 or email

Please note: the workshop date was incorrectly listed as May 14th originally and has been changed. - Editor

News NAFEMS, The International Association for the Engineering Analysis Community, is currently working on expanding its North American Chapter. With some 700 member companies worldwide, the organization is the only truly independent authority on the use of computer modelling and simulation methods, and is widely respected throughout the analysis world.

To this end, the NAFEMS North American Chapter will be holding meetings in a number of locations over the coming period. Many senior individuals from major corporations and vendors, as well as analysis specialists have already asked to be involved, and will be attending these meetings. We extend an open invitation to all interested parties to attend.

The first of these meetings will take place in the Marriott Suites, Anaheim, California on Wednesday 19th May 2004.

Hardware techman wrote in with this news:

NVIDIA Corporation has introduced the NVIDIA Quadro® FX 4000, a professional graphics solution that shatters all performance and image quality records, and reaches new heights in programmability and precision. Armed with a radically new graphics architecture driving twice the geometry and fill rates and up to five times the pixel read-back performance of the former industry leader, the NVIDIA Quadro FX 4000 features unlimited programmability and true 128-bit floating point precision – giving developers using it the power to create visual content that others with competitive boards can only imagine.

“Designers need their work to be as realistic as possible as early in the design stage as possible,” said Jean-Luc Cuinier, R&D manager at Dassault Systèmes. “CATIA® V5 accelerated by NVIDIA Quadro FX graphics allows designers to create and interact with complex 3D models with ultra-realistic material aspects in real time. New NVIDIA Quadro FX 4000 capabilities like extended programmability, infinite program lengths, and 32-bit shader precision promise to further increase CATIA user productivity and design quality.”

News The CD adapco Group, leading provider of CAE solutions, has recently released STAR CCM+, a next generation CFD (computational fluid dynamics) code for flow analysis.

Terms such as ‘next generation’, although often overused, can be applied with complete confidence to STAR CCM+. Unlike the many legacy CFD codes currently on the market, it has been developed by a group of experts who were determined to start with a blank sheet of paper and ‘do the job properly’.

The result is a code that offers outstanding ease-of-use delivered through an object-based tree-structured GUI, which guides even the most novice user through the set-up and analysis of a CFD problem. Utilizing the latest numerical algorithms including an advanced pre-conditioned coupled and segregated solver and state-of-the-art software coding, the new product brings unheard levels of accuracy, reliability and flexibility to the CFD engineer.
