New Software: SoftPredict Announces the COSILAB_Lib Plug-In
Posted Wed September 21, 2005 @07:27AM
Print version Email story Tweet story
News SoftPredict, a subdibision of Rotexo GmbH & Co. KG, the leader and visioneer in reaction modeling, has announced a new module COSILAB_Lib which is an off-spring of the industry standard COSILAB.

SoftPredict’s COSILAB_Lib is a ready-to-use plug-in for user-written one-, two- or three-dimensional CFD codes in either the Fortran, the C or the C++ programming language. It handles arbitrarily complex gas-phase chemistry in flow simulations including combustion, exhaust gas after-treatment, and pollutant formation. The new software benefits from an easy-to-use graphical user-interface that - as in COSILAB - handles preprocessing of thermodynamic and molecular databases, and of reaction mechanisms -- all in the most popular and internationlly accepted data formats.

Application By John Purnell
Senior Engineer
CDI Marine Systems Development Division

CDI Marine Systems Development Division (CDIMSDD, formerly Band, Lavis, & Associates, Inc.) used computer simulation to design the lift fans and propellers for a proposed large air cushion vehicle (ACV) in a fraction of the time that would have been possible using prior conventional methods. The proposed ACV will be used in transporting cargo and passengers, and is designed to carry twice the payload of the present craft. CDIM-SDD was assigned the task of designing new propellers capable of delivering about twice the power of the present propulsion system. There was also a requirement to design new lift-air supply fans capable of developing additional pressure and flow to support twice the payload.

Help With Fluidized Bed Simulation
Posted Wed September 14, 2005 @08:09AM

Help Desk Monty writes "Hi Friends,

This is Monty. I am doing thesis in Fluidization Engineering. I am simulating fluidizied bed having air as continous phase and glass beads as dispersed phase. I want to use Eulerian multiphase approach. I am using Star-CD. In most of the other research papers, Drag coefficient and Restitution coefficient have been mentioned in the formulation for simulation. If someone could tell me where exactly, I need to put these 2 coefficients and where do I mention the percentage of dispersed phase present in the fluidizied bed.

Thanking you."

Announcements Flownex version 6.8 incorporates several enhancements to the solver for faster and more stable network solutions. Furthermore, a new interpolation routine for coping with interpolation between different speed-lines (with vastly different spreads of mass flow points) on the compressor / turbine charts was implemented.

Several enhancements were also implemented for the Flownex graphical user interface to make Flownex even easier to use.
