News Liang, Wu writes "Hi, eveyone,

Rencently, I implemented yet another fast and robust polygon triangulation code by Sweep Line Algorithm using standard C++. This code can handle polygon with/without holes and around two times faster than the code "triangulation" developed by Atul Narkhede and Dinesh Manocha by seidel's incremental randomized algorithm. All details can be found from Poly2Tri's website. Check it out - any comments are highly appreciated.

The source code will open to public soon. However, Poly2Tri has a small bug when searching for all monotone loops, so the source code is not available now. it will be released as soon as this bugs is fixed. If you have any ideas or know an efficient way to find monotone loops, you are warmly welcome to drop email to me.

Thanks for your contribution!"

News MCAD Online has posted a review of Fluent's FloWizard 2 mainstream CFD product.

FloWizard V2 is an excellent follow up to the work that the company has done with the initial FloWizard release. You can see that the developers have listened to the early adopters and have integrated technology which extends the potential use of the system into new territories, particularly with the introduction of the Ideal Gas model, which allows the simulation of compressible gases.

BAR Honda CEO on CFD Technology

News has an interview with BAR chief executive Nick Fry discussing the recently completed season and looking ahead to next year. When questioned about a possible new F1 regulation requiring a Centreline Downwash Generating (CDG) rear wing, Mr. Fry had this to say:
On the new CDG wing, I think a lot more work needs to be done to ensure it is the right answer. We're one of the biggest proponents of CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) technology but it only gives you a good guide for what you should be doing, it doesn't have the resolution to give you all the answers. I feel more work, more modelling and more wind tunnel tests need to be done to make sure that this new rear wing proposal really is the way to go.
