News Continuing what avid ANSYS users consider a CAE tradition, preparations are underway around the world for the 2004 ANSYS Users' Conferences. These events bring together engineers and analysts from all disciplines of computer-aided engineering.

These conferences are a unique opportunity for attendees to learn about ANSYS' strategy for the future of engineering design simulation and analysis. Plus, attendees have the chance to gain an understanding of ANSYS, ICEM CFD and CFX, and how the integration of these technologies offers an unprecedented level of capability in one solution.

Events: Trends and Best Practice at the CAD/CFD Interface

News Trends and Best Practice at the CAD/CFD Interface
24th November 2004, Coventry, UK

CAD is an integral component of modern CFD and is the normal starting point for CFD analysis. Traditionally, the generation of CAD had been viewed as a separate upstream task to CFD analysis. However, this boundary has been blurred by the advent of CFD pre-processors that condition CAD prior to meshing, bringing “slimmed-down” CAD into the CFD arena. A more recent trend is for mainstream CAD to offer “slimmed-down” CFD. Thus the CAD/CFD interface is evolving rapidly and users have an array of strategies from which to choose.

This seminar aims to review the evolving CAD/CFD interface in order to identify basic strategies that are available to users and also to disseminate best practice. The seminar will examine the major trends within the industry. The issue of CAD will be viewed in a broad sense and will encompass a full range of inputs that are in the CFD process.

Global supercomputer leader Cray Inc. has announced that the company is targeting computer-aided engineering (CAE) as a primary market for its new Cray XD1(TM) Opteron/Linux-based supercomputer. The Cray XD1 product is "purpose-built" for high performance computing (HPC) applications, including CAE problems, and features breakthrough innovations in interconnect technology, high availability and ease of management.

Cray is working with leading Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) to exploit the Cray XD1 system's advantages on widely used CAE applications. With U.S. list pricing starting at under $100,000, the Cray XD1 system promises to substantially outperform conventional Linux clusters in the same price range.

News Hitachi's Product Engineering Research Laboratory and Hitachi Home & Life Solutions have jointly developed 3D molding simulation technology especially designed for foamed polyurethane resin, which often expands, during the molding process, more than 30 times the original volume.

The new solution accurately calculates and simulates density and pressure changes in the material during the molding process to enable manufacturers to effectively produce a mold with fewer prototypes and cut production costs.

The system works with FLOW-3D, Flow Science's computational fluid dynamics (CFD) flow modeling software.

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.
