News Fluent Inc. invites you to attend the next in our online seminar (webinar) series, Thursday, October 14, 2004 at 2:00pm ET - Simulation Process and Data Management, presented by Enductive Solutions and featuring this event's partner, Bdrive. Enductive Solutions is a sister company of Fluent focused on delivering customized engineering solutions not just for CFD but for all areas of CAE including process and data management. There is no cost to attend this webinar.

How do you capture and protect your companies design expertise, and apply it consistently design after design?

How can you make better use of powerful analysis software early in design when its impact is greatest?

Since as much as 75% of a typical product's life cycle cost is determined during the initial design phase, the return on investment for upfront analysis should be the highest.

News NASA has recently awarded Optimal Solutions Software, LLC a second phase of the only Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) project in the State of Idaho in 2004. The first phase of the project began in January, 2004.

The SBIR project will allow the company to add new features and capabilities to its existing computational fluid dynamics (CFD) shape deformation and design optimization software tool—Sculptor™. The new capability will enable NASA engineers who are responsible for designing complex valves and pipe fittings on pipes that transport dangerous fluids, such as liquid hydrogen and liquid oxygen, to achieve designs that meet strict design standards for these applications.

Sculptor is an interactive design software program that provides capabilities to perform shape deformation and optimization in CFD design—in real time—thus, eliminating the numerous iterations inherent in the process when the designer has to manually modify the design.

News SmartCAE Srl, a leader in providing Computer-Aided Engineering (CAE) software has announced their new product, Smart|Coupling, a multidisciplinary data transfer tool.

Smart|Coupling is a program for coupling and linking of mathematical models coming from different disciplines, thus allowing a seamless multiphysics interaction. In fact, different CAE disciplines need specific modelling strategies by means of grid shape, grid density, system units, and often it is not possible to use one and the same model for different simulations.
