New Software: Matched Meshing Now Available in Harpoon
Posted Tue September 19, 2006 @04:54PM
Print version Email story Tweet story
Grid Generation Sharc Ltd announced today the release of new Matched Meshing software which has been included in the latest version of Harpoon.

Harpoon is extremely useful for meshing complex geometry quickly and with very little effort. One of its major strengths is that it does not require a watertight surface mesh so can cope with imperfect CAD geometry. If you have already invested the time to create a surface mesh now you can still enjoy all the benefits of a Harpoon volume mesh while retaining the initial surface mesh.

Post Processing CEI has released Reveal, a new 3D geometry player for viewing, analyzing and manipulating complex visualization scenarios created in EnSight or other applications based on Apex, CEI’s framework for cross-platform graphics development.

Reveal spreads the power of extreme visualization across the enterprise. Engineers and scientists can import multiple scenarios from EnSight into Reveal to share selected visualizations with colleagues, partners, customers and others. The actual Reveal application can be embedded into the file, requiring no downloading or licensing for those receiving the visualization.

Application: ANSYS CFX is the CFD Tool of Choice for LaunchPoint’s Pediatric Maglev VAD
Posted Sun September 17, 2006 @03:04PM
Print version Email story Tweet story
Application At Goleta-area venture engineering firm LaunchPoint Technologies, simulation and virtual prototyping have become an integral part of the engineering design cycle. With tight project schedules and limited budgets being commonplace, engineers are often required to predict the performance of new designs or processes even before they reach manufacturing. So by rigorously maintaining the importance of simulation analysis in design optimization of a flow system, LaunchPoint is able to exceed the increasing expectations of demanding clients.

But experts in fields such as computational fluid dynamics (CFD) need powerful tools to enable their expertise, and not all CFD solutions are created equal. That is why LaunchPoint Technologies has selected ANSYS® CFX® as the simulation tool of choice for the design of the Pediatric VAD (Ventricular Assist Device) currently being researched.
