New Software: ANSYS Unveils Technology for Integrated Product Development Environment
Posted Tue November 30, 2004 @05:24PM
Print version Email story Tweet story
News ANSYS, Inc., a global innovator of simulation software and technologies designed to optimize product development processes, has announced ANSYS 9.0, the first software release featuring electromagnetic, computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and mesh creation technologies integrated within the ANSYSģ Workbench(tm) product development environment, making simulation more powerful and more accessible to a broader range of users.

"At Eaton, for over the past 20 years we have relied on the ANSYS software to qualify our products," said Thomas Chimner, chief engineer at Eaton Corporation. "Now, ANSYS has taken this capability to the next level by incorporating this powerful tool into the Workbench and provided our development team the tools to succeed in today's competitive market."

A major upgrade for the CAE industry's leading simulation software, ANSYS 9.0 is an important stride toward the continued evolution of Workbench as a more productive and collaborative engineering tool for simulation-driven, integrated product development. Workbench's easy-to-use modern architecture allows companies to be more productive by eliminating manual file transfer, result translation and reanalysis, saving time and money.

Visual Numerics Inc. has announced the availability of Visual Numerics' IMSL Fortran Numerical Library 5.0 for the Cray XD1 supercomputer. As part of the two companies' longstanding relationship, Visual Numerics' mathematical and statistical library will be available on the Cray XD1, an AMD Opteron/Linux system designed to meet the needs of the broad High Performance Computing (HPC) user community.

With the IMSL Fortran Library, Visual Numerics offers the broadest array of mathematical and statistical algorithms in a single package along with a wide range of platform support. The combination of the IMSL Fortran Library with the Cray XD1 provides customers in industry, government and academia with tools that enable the development of large-scale analytical applications that require a high-performance environment, and enables users to move those applications from a lower-end development system to the Cray XD1 without significant changes to application code.

Fluent Announces Support for AMD Opteron Processors
Posted Mon November 29, 2004 @09:30AM
Print version Email story Tweet story
News Fluent Inc., the world's leader in computational fluid dynamics (CFD) software solutions, announced today its support for the 32- and 64-bit AMD OpteronTM processor in its upcoming release of FLUENT 6.2. AMD provided Fluent with technical assistance and early access to its new processor technologies, allowing for support of this technology within FLUENT 6.2.

Support for the latest generation processor and interconnect technologies has emerged as a critical requirement in order to maintain the required computational efficiency. As FLUENT customers continue to refine their simulations, by enhancing the fidelity of their CAD geometry models and invoking more advanced physical models, the computational requirements greatly increase. It then becomes necessary to employ large computational clusters to support rapid design analyses.

New Software: Advanced Design Technology Launches New Version of TURBOdesign-1
Posted Fri November 19, 2004 @03:44PM
Print version Email story Tweet story
News Advanced Design Technology, the global leader in turbomachinery blade design methodology based on inverse design approach, has released version 2.2 of its TURBOdesign-1 Turbomachinery blade design software. The latest release of TURBOdesign1 includes a script version which can be coupled with any in-house or commercial automatic optimization codes. Coupling TURBOdesign-1, which is based on a 3D inverse design approach, with automatic optimizers can help to speed up the convergence of 3D turbomachinery aerodynamic optimization because:
  • TURBOdesign-1 can generate smooth 3D blades with as few as 8 control points
  • TURBOdesign-1 implicitly ensures designs with fixed specific work and mass flow rate.
  • In TURBOdesign-1 the design parameter is blade loading which more directly relates to the 3D pressure distribution and the flow field. This helps to accelerate the convergence of the optimization process.
  • The results of optimization are an optimum loading distribution that is general and can be used with ease in TURBOdesign-1 to design similar machines with optimum performance.
