Application With each successive generation of Cisco products, increases in functionality and speed have increased thermal design challenges. In response, Cisco Systems has defined a temperature aware design flow that significantly improves co-design between electrical and mechanical engineers.

“The new concurrent electronic/thermal engineering approach has reduced the time required to identify and solve thermal problems, making it practical to address thermal issues at an earlier stage in the design process,” said Herman Chu, Technical Leader for Cisco Systems, San Jose, California. “It appears that the five days that was required in the past to evaluate a prospective board design from a thermal standpoint can be reduced to only two and a half days or less.”

CFdesign CFdesign V9 Upfront CFD software from Blue Ridge Numerics enables engineers to set up and view first-pass fluid flow and heat transfer simulations in minutes while generating high-fidelity design reviews up to 20 times faster than with previous versions. Developed for multi-tasking mechanical, electro-mechanical, and thermal engineers, V9 also offers new analysis features to increase innovation during new product development.

“The two greatest requirements among engineers in our marketplace are speed and innovation,” says Ed Williams, president of Blue Ridge Numerics. “There is no other CFD package on the market that allows an engineer to go from 3D concept to an innovative, production-ready design as quickly and efficiently as CFdesign V9.”

Announcements Tecplot Inc. and Fluent Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of ANSYS, Inc., offer this free webinar, Thursday, Nov. 30, to demonstrate the combined power of their respective software solutions in tackling fluid-structure interaction (FSI) problems and transient flow problems.

The first example highlighted will be an FSI problem involving a 3D sailplane wing. The flow solution from FLUENT and the structural solution from ANSYS communicate via SCAI’s MpCCI routine. The presenters will show how the flow variables and the structural stresses/deformations can be visualized and animated at the same time using Tecplot 360.
