Application By Dagoberto S. Severo, André F. Schneider,
Elton C. V. Pinto and Vanderlei Gusberti
PCE Engenharia S/S Ltda, Brazil

Today’s aluminum industry is continually studying ways to increase the efficiency of reduction cells in smelters. Numerical simulation has become a highly effective tool for analyzing such complex processes. PCE Engenharia Ltda, S/S located in Porto Alegre, Brazil, has been using simulation for more than 10 years. The industry consulting firm simulates equipment in the aluminum production chain and, in partnership with customers, develops new technological solutions for primary aluminum production.

Application by Bob Cramblitt

Small things often sell cars and create brand loyalty: the positioning of the cup holder; how the seat molds to your body; the thunk of the door when it closes. Add to that list how particles – whether they are rain, snow or dirt – disperse across the surface of a car.

Particle behavior in relation to the surface of a car is known in the automotive industry as vehicle soiling, and up until recently, it was nearly impossible to simulate in a computer. But within the last few years, Audi has made major strides in using CFD simulation and visualization to better predict the complex interactions that constitute vehicle soiling.
