News Fluent Inc., world leader in computational fluid dynamics (CFD) software, has announced that multiple Formula One motor racing World Drivers' and World Constructors’ Champions, Ferrari Spa, has extended its relationship with the company to recognize it as its Strategic CFD Provider. The new relationship was cemented in early September in Maranello, Italy, when Jean Todt, General Manager of Ferrari Spa, signed a new contract with Fluent for 3 years. The existing relationship between Ferrari’s Aerodynamics Department and Fluent Italia stretches back to 1996 when Fluent supplied them with software and services for CFD analysis of racing cars.

Commenting on the new agreement, Mario Almondo, Head of the Industrial Department of the Scuderia, said “We consider the use of CFD simulation and the services offered by Fluent as an important element in our racing success. That is why we are happy to name the company our Strategic CFD Provider”.

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 ANSYS® 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.
