Application By David Curtis,
Sports Engineering Research Group (SERG), Sheffield University, Sheffield, UK
Reprinted from Fluent News

The United Kindom is not renowned for its climate being conducive to winter sports. However, with the Winter Olympics in Turin, Italy in February 2006, a new breed of athlete has come along. Kristan Bromley, the top-ranked skeleton bobsled competitor in the UK, and current European Champion, is a leading British medal prospect. He was also the first British male to win a winter sports world cup series when he dominated the 2003/2004 season. Bromley is perhaps unique in the sport because he has a Ph.D. in ice sports technology, and saw the value of CFD in his previous job with the defense company BAE.

Print version Email story Tweet story
News ESI Group is pleased to announce the release of the 2006 version of CFD-CADalyzer. CFD-CADalyzer is the perfect tool for both CAD engineers and CFD analysts to perform design level analysis with a simple and intuitive interface. CFD-CADalyzer, a complete package in itself with built-in pre and post-processor, enables the simulation of flow and heat transfer, and allows the comparison of results over a range of varying geometries and operational conditions.

In pre-processing, specifically mesh building, mesh quality is very important in setting up a complex geometry problem. Now with CFD-CADalyzer 2006 significantly better mesh quality is obtained through suppression of tiny features coupled with intelligent boundary layer meshing.
