Print version Email story Tweet story
News The Shanti Swaroop Bhatnagar prize is awarded annually to young Indian researchers for scientific contributions made primarily in India during the last five years.

Vivek Ranade, head of the Industrial Flow Modelling Group at the Indian National Chemical Laboratory, has been selected for the award in recognition of his important contribution in advancing understanding of bubble column, stirred and trickle bed reactors by developing various novel computational fluid dynamics (CFD) models, which have helped in predicting unsteady as well as time-averaged flow characteristics of chemical reactors.

ANSYS FLUENT Fluent Inc., the worldwide leader in computational fluid dynamics (CFD) software and services, announces Fluent France’s opening of a new office in Madrid, Spain. The new office is located in Madrid’s city centre, and will serve Fluent’s Spanish and Portuguese clients under the management of Francisco Sarasola. Eng. Sarasola has been working for 7 years at Fluent, first as an Engineer in the Development Group at the Fluent Inc. headquarters in Lebanon, NH, USA, and more recently, as a Technical and Sales Engineer at Fluent France.

To celebrate the new office opening, Fluent invites all CAE users in Spain and Portugal to participate in the upcoming Fluent Forums in collaboration with IBM. The Forums will take place at the IBM conference centres in Portugal, October 8 and in Spain, October 15. This free one-day event in each location is open to all CAE users in the respective country.

Announcements The Fluids and Combustion Engineering Network is holding a course on CFD in Biomass Combustion on 25-29 October 2004 at the Institute of Energy Technology, in Aalborg, Denmark.

The primary objective of the course is to present state-of-the-art models in the area of solid fuel combustion, with special focus on biomass fuels, and to give practical examples of their application. The use of CFD, as a tool to transfer knowledge from basic research to end-users in industry, will be the overall theme.

Hardware X-bit Labs is reporting that HP will cease production of Intel Itanium 2 based workstations, citing demand switch to systems with Intel Xeon processors 64-bit capability known as EM64T.

“HP is discontinuing its Itanium-based workstations. In working with and listening to our high-performance workstation partners and customers, we have become aware that the focus in this arena is being driven toward 64-bit extension technology,” HP’s spokeswoman Nita Miller told X-bit labs.

HP will reportedly continue to sell servers based on Itanium 2 processors.

Application: Research Could Lead to Less Airport Noise
Posted Thu September 23, 2004 @04:52PM

Application From a Madison County Record article:

Airplanes fly over Kader Frendi's home in Madison frequently, and the roaring of the craft's approach to the airport serves as a reminder of research he is conducting at The University of Alabama in Huntsville.

Frendi is searching for ways to reduce noise associated with the takeoff and landing of aircraft. He has been investigating the science of noise generation and noise reduction during most of his academic career. He joined UAH's mechanical and aerospace engineering department five years ago. Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) uses computers to solve complex equations that model a problem of external or internal airflow over vehicle shapes.

"One of the big concerns in the aeronautical field is the noise level generated by the takeoff and landing approaches of airplanes," Frendi said. "Most people don't know it, but during takeoff and landing the noise from the airframe is almost equal to the noise made by the airplane's propulsion system." Most of the noise during the plane's approach to the runway is generated by the landing gear, the wing and the moving parts of the wing.
