Print version Email story Tweet story
News Disrupting the low-end/ high-end classifications often assigned to CFD software, Blue Ridge Numerics has announced the commercial availability of CFdesign® v8.0, full-spectrum fluid flow and heat transfer simulation that dramatically simplifies access to an expanded suite of cutting edge analysis capabilities to accelerate and economize product development.

Intended for use by multi-tasking engineers that do not have the time or inclination to make a career of CFD, CFdesign v8.0 contains breakthrough simulation, visualization, and collaboration tools.

News Fluent’s European Automotive CFD Conference (EACC) held in Frankfurt, Germany has proved to be a huge success. The number of attendees virtually doubled from those present in 2003, with almost 300 delegates, plus press representatives from Europe’s most influential automotive publications in Germany, France, the UK and Italy, all attending.

In addition to presenters from many of the most high-profile companies in automotive and automotive–related Computer Aided Engineering (CAE) and hardware vendors, there were attendees from 20 countries at the event proving the importance of the conference to the automotive industry across Europe and beyond. There was also a large exhibition space where 26 exhibitors showcased their products and services.

News CAD User Magazine has posted a review of CFdesign 8.0 from a design engineer's perspective.
A company called Blue Ridge Numerics has produced a software package that gives design engineers the opportunity of extending the role of their model into the analytical arena. After all, parametric modelling incorporates within the model just those properties that the computational fluid dynamic software needs to perform its function. All it needed was the right sort of human interface that converted the CFD codes and practices into the methodology that the designer already understands – CAD!

News Alion Science and Technology Corp. of McLean won a five-year, $49.6 million contract from the Environmental Protection Agency to provide technical support in developing methods to determine air quality and assess the effect of atmospheric pollutants and other toxic materials on human health.
As part of the contract work, Alion also will write the simulation program that analyzes the test results. The program combines computational fluid dynamics, a simulation of the flow of air around a solid body, with how humans breathe air in and out and a statistical model that measures the variability of particulate concentrations in air, Amos said.

Events: Quality & Reliability of CFD Simulations Seminar
Posted Tue July 12, 2005 @09:40AM

Announcements NAFEMS and ERCOFTAC will host a joint awareness seminar titled "Quality and Reliability of CFD Simulations II: Industrial Challenges" on Tuesday September 13, 2005 at the University of Nottingham, UK.

Industrial, environmental and academic applications of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) are increasingly relied upon to provide qualitative and quantitative data for design, safety assessment and understanding of complex flow systems. Direct validation against comprehensive test data is often impractical. The level of confidence which can be placed on the results of CFD is therefore an important and current issue in engineering simulation.

This seminar brings together users of CFD to examine issues of accuracy, reliability and trust in the context of practical applications in engineering design, the environment, and health and safety management. The underlying theme is the useful exploitation of CFD in the face of uncertainty and complexity. The presentations will illustrate, through case studies, how to reduce uncertainty in CFD and how to derive most benefit from the technology, as well as raising awareness of current initiatives to enhance the quality and trust of CFD simulation.
