CFD Helps Improve Ore Separation by Flotation
Posted Tue October 25, 2005 @02:59PM
Print version Email story Tweet story
News Flotation, a process where valuable minerals are separated from low-grade ore by entraining the minerals in the froth, is a very important part of modern mining. After 100 years of modern flotation, more money can be made by achieving a cleaner separation of minerals.

Now CFD techniques are being employed to study the physics of flotation and how the process can be improved.

“In flotation cells, the use of computational fluid dynamic model-ling has now come of age, and it is possible to gain an insight into the distribution of energy in various areas of a flotation tank,”

Much of this research is being carried out under the auspices of AMIRA’s P780A project.

News Dr. Patrick Jenny, an engineer at the Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich, has won this year's Latsis prize for his work on fluid dynamics.

The 39-year-old professor at the Institute of Fluid Dynamics was honoured for his "efficient and innovative solutions" in the computer-assisted simulation of complex fluid systems in nature and technology.

Specifically, Dr. Jenny has been researching probability density function (PDF) modeling of turbulent reactive flow, multi-phase flow in porous media and multi-scale modeling.

Events: Computational Fluid Models for Store and Stage Separations Webinar
Posted Tue October 25, 2005 @10:26AM
Print version Email story Tweet story
News This webinar is particularly suited for engineers interested in using computational fluid dynamics (CFD) for solving store separation and stage separation problems. Additional general computed motions will be discussed as well.

The use of a six-degree-of-freedom (6 DOF) model will be demonstrated in the context of store and stage separation problems, which involve flow-dependent motions.

News Please join us for this special event to learn about how the finite element program ABAQUS and the fluid dynamics code FLUENT provide best-in-class simulation solutions in their respective application areas. With the MpCCI technology provided by Fraunhofer SCAI, the two codes now can be used to simulate fluid-structure interaction (FSI).

This enables the user to simulate both sequential and fully coupled FSI problem with high accuracy. The communication of results between the two codes is handled by Fraunhofer SCAI technology MpCCI, making the FSI coupling between ABAQUS and FLUENT accurate and user friendly.

News Fluent Inc., the world leader in computational fluid dynamics (CFD) software, releases version 4.2 of its Icepak™ electronics cooling design software. The newest version of Icepak incorporates optimization capabilities for thermal design of electronic systems. Design optimization obviates the need for trial-and-error simulations in determining the optimum parameters of a thermal design. The ease-of-use of Icepak's embedded optimization module coupled with its efficient gradient-based optimization algorithm enables the thermal design process to be completed in hours rather than days.
