Fluent Increases the Price Performance Ratio of its Remote Simulation Facility
Posted Mon May 02, 2005 @05:01PM
Print version Email story Tweet story
News Fluent Inc., world leader in computational fluid dynamics (CFD) software and services, announced today that its unique RSolve TM Remote Simulation Facility (RSF), an online service for running FLUENT 6.2, has expanded its high performance computing facility to over 200 Peak Mflops, with 64 Gbytes of memory and 1.6 Terabytes of storage. In addition, the entry price for using the RSF has been reduced by a factor of 3x to a range of $US6/CPU-hr - $US3/CPU-hr, depending on volume of purchase.

The benefit of Fluent's RSolve service lies in its ability to provide cost effective access to the Fluent application for CFD users who have a periodic need to perform large computationally intensive simulations. By capitalizing on Fluent's in-house Linux cluster expertise, users can immediately begin performing complex flow modeling on an optimized solution, instead of facing the long and often complex hardware and software procurement issues they might otherwise encounter.

Solving for Coupled Charge Density and Potential Equations
Posted Mon May 02, 2005 @04:59PM
Print version Email story Tweet story
Help Desk I have a problem in solving two coupled charge density and potential equations. It is related to corona discharge and I have two boundary conditions i.e at electrode and at collector. The potential is known. So can any one help me to solve this problem? I am doing the numerical work using fluent software and I need to compare the potential and charge density distribution with the analytical solution where in I am getting 2 different solutions for charge density.

News Effectively Managing the CAE Process and Data

DATE: Thursday, May 11, 2005
TIME: 2:00 p.m. ET

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

Unfortunately, many companies struggle to leverage their valuable design experience while protecting intellectual property, or work hard to develop sophisticated methods with Computer Aided Engineering (CAE) software but fall short of realizing their true potential to impact designs.

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?

Simulation Process and Data Management (SPDM) provides a systematic approach and infrastructure for managing the processes and data – both experimental and analytical – associated with CAE simulations and integrating these capabilities within existing Products Lifecycle Management (PLM) and Product Data Management (PDM) systems.

Enductive Solutions, a leader in this field, will provide an overview of this technology and show some examples of customized SPDM solutions.

Help Solving 3D Unsteady NS Eqns for Flapping Wing
Posted Mon April 25, 2005 @10:53PM
Print version Email story Tweet story
Help Desk quarkz writes "Hi,

My colleages and I (research students) are thinking of solving the unsteady incompressible 3D NS eqns codes to model flapping wings. Hence, the boundary will be moving. We've been looking thru many schemes and we need some opinons...

  1. Projection or fractional or artificial compress, SIMPLER which is more suitable? We're a bit confused.
  2. 2nd order crank Nicolson or backward Euler for time discretization?
  3. How to move the boundary? What we know is to rotate the whole grids, suggested by Liu & Kawachi. Is there a better solution?
  4. We'll be using structured grids. Is it better to write ourselves or get a ready program? Is it efficient to generate 2d grids and stacked them together?

Sorry for asking so many questions. Anyway, thanks in advance!"
