Print version Email story Tweet story
News Fluent Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of ANSYS, Inc., has announced the upcoming release of Version 2 of FLUENT® for CATIA® V5. The new release, planned for customer shipment during December 2006, will extend the range of fluid flow simulations that can be accomplished within the V5 PLM environment and will include enhanced automation for rapid performance-based evaluation of design alternatives.

Developed by Fluent as a member of the CAA V5 Software Community Program, FLUENT for CATIA V5 delivers the ANSYS vision of simulation-driven product development to customers working within the V5 PLM environment.

News Intelligent Light has expanded its reach and ability to help CFD practitioners by establishing the Applied Research Group headed by Dr. Earl P. N. Duque. The impact of the Applied Research Group is already being felt on the leading edge of CFD and will advance the state of the art in CFD for years to come. Beneficiaries of the work include Intelligent Light customers, users of the FIELDVIEW CFD post-processing software and the CFD community in general.

The group’s capabilities have already been demonstrated in its collaborations and contracted efforts with a number of HPC users, and through its contributions to the academic community via research collaborations at leading universities and national research laboratories.

News From its first release in 2004, STAR-CCM+ has impressed the CFD community with its rapid pace of development. Written “from the ground up” using a modular programming style and the latest programming techniques, STAR-CCM+ is an entirely new concept in CFD.

Innovations such as built-in surface-wrapping, advanced automated meshing (creating either polyhedral or predominantly hexahedral control volumes) and the ability to “copy and paste” meshes and model set-ups between calculations have quickly established STAR-CCM+ a reputation for producing high-quality simulation results in a single code with minimum user effort.

Interview with Richard Bardwell of Sharc Ltd.

News Richard Bardwell started Sharc Ltd. in 1997 with Dr. Mark Gallagher. Their mission is to promote and develop automated CFD. They have satisfied a major part of their mission by developing Harpoon, the extreme mesher that turns the days and long hours usually required to create a useful mesh into an automatic process that creates high-quality meshes in minutes. Based in Manchester, Sharc is also the distributor for CEI’s full line of products in the United Kingdom and Ireland.

We talked to Richard to find out a bit more about the man behind the mesher.

How did you become involved in simulation?
I started straight out of the University of Manchester, beginning in the loads and dynamics department at BAE Systems. I used simple NASTRAN models and aero calcs to predict flutter on the Airbus A340. I then moved to GEC, where I was involved in the Towed Decoy on the Eurofighter project. After that, I worked on the Brimstone missile project for the Harrier and Tornado. From there it was to Rover/BMW, where I helped introduce CFD, working on the external aerodynamics of 4x4 vehicles. My final stop before Sharc was with Boeing in Seattle, where I did flutter calcs on the Boeing 737 NG (Next Generation).
