News Flomerics Group PLC, supplier of virtual prototyping software to the electronics industries, has announced its 2005 financial results. Overall revenue was up 12% from 2004 to £11.4 million.

Flomerics has maintained its position as the global market leader in thermal analysis for electronics with its flagship product, FLOTHERM. The Company has recently been tackling thermal issues earlier in the design cycle, in particular with its FLO/PCB product released in 2004, and this has strengthened the market position of FLOTHERM itself. Revenue from the thermal product lines increased by 6% relative to 2004.

Application: Medicine's Fluid Dynamics
Posted Fri March 03, 2006 @10:29AM
Print version Email story Tweet story
Application In Medicine's Fluid Dynamics Desktop Engineering chronicles the rise of CFD in the biomedical field. CFD has found application in human physiology research into circulatory and respiratory systems, pharmaceutical delivery, and in design of medical equipment.
Chris Reid, vice president and general manager of the fluids business unit for ANSYS, reports growing use of CFX for heart, circulatory, and respiratory system product development—such items as stents, blood pumps, and inhalers. "Blood flow itself is a multiphase flow problem," Reid says. "Modeling this has become easier with today’s software. We can model multiphase, nonlinear behavior in arterial walls with software for fluid-structural interaction (FSI). An important application area for FSI is medicine delivery in the respiratory tract. Designs for asthmatics require modeling the whole respiratory system."
