Print version Email story Tweet story
Announcements A new conferance for Simulation and Data Intensive Industries is on for 7-8 September in Goteborg, Sweden. The SIMDI05 conference will have a mix of consultants, ISV, hardware vendors, and contractors. During the show there will be exhibits and workshops.

The intention of the Organizing Committee for SIMDI05 is to gather all relevant actors in the Simulation Industry in the Nordic countries:

Engineers and Scientific users
At SIMDI 2005 you will find all the relevant technologies for your simulation work and their providers, also you will be able to show your competence and references.
Decision makers for HPC investments
Meet providers of leading edge technical solutions for your HPC environment.
Explain your company's needs regarding technical simulation and get in contact with Consultants and ISV and HPC providers.
Advertise your expertise and your research group activities for the Nordic industry.

For more information, see the SIMDI05 homepage.

New Version of OpenFlower Open Source CFD Software Released
Posted Tue May 31, 2005 @03:43PM
Print version Email story Tweet story
Open Source OpenFlower (FLOW solvER) is a C++ open source Linux CFD code mainly intended to solve the turbulent incompressible Navier-Stokes equations with a LES approach. It can deal with arbitrary complex 3D geometries with its finite volume approach and multi-element grids. One of its main objectives is to give to the CFD community a plug'n play CFD software, easy to use and install (no complicated compilations needed since it is written in standard C++ and also comes along with binary version of the code for Linux).

New Software: New Grid Generation Software Speeds Under Hood Simulation
Posted Tue May 31, 2005 @03:19PM
Print version Email story Tweet story
Grid Generation When starting a real life under hood flow simulation you have to deal with real life data. As you all know you can win or lose the game with CAD data handling and meshing.

For data reduction, file conversion and meshing, MAGNA STEYR uses the very new and, from MAGNA’s point of view, brilliant tool Spider. Spider is one of the first meshers which works fully automatically and is massively parallel.

MAGNA STEYR uses AVL-SWIFT for the flow simulation and we couple the radiator to the 1D cooling system tool KULI.

A full engine compartment flow simulation including external aerodynamics took five to seven weeks in 2003, today, thanks to Spider, we are able to perform these kind of simulations within one to two weeks.

Help with Jet Simulation
Posted Fri May 27, 2005 @05:31PM

Help Desk amjaiin writes " Hi all,

I am a new user in Fluent. I want to simulate a vertical water jet in 2D in the presence of gravity and air. For this I made the geometry as such: a rectangle grid with the bottom edge as a wall and side edges as pressure outlets. The upper edge is also a pressure outlet except for a small edge, representing the jet, which is a velocity inlet. Will this configuration work?

In fluent, I am using the k-eplison model with the gravity option and the operating media as air.

But when I am simulate the jet using this model, I don't get the result I expect (it gives some upward motion after few cms).

Please suggest some changes I should make to correct the model.

Print version Email story Tweet story
News SoftInWay, Inc., the developer of AxSTREAM™ - a powerful software suite that encompasses the complete engineering process of axial turbomachinery flow path design, will demonstrate pre-release 2.01 of AxSTREAM software during ASME Turbo Expo, Power for Land, Sea & Air, June 6-9 2005, Reno-Tahoe, Nevada.

Please visit booth #309 for demonstration.

The major new and weighty addition to this version is a set of solvers that allows performing rapid preliminary design of a Multistage Axial Compressor flow path as well as meanline analysis, cascades profiling, creation of airfoil 3D models, export of the models to CFD solvers, and generating of compressor maps.
