New Software: Tecplot Edge 3.0 Visualization Library Released
Posted Wed December 20, 2006 @03:05PM
Print version Email story Tweet story
News Tecplot, Inc., a developer of data visualization software, today announced the release of Tecplot Edge 3.0, a data visualization product designed specifically for application developers.

Tecplot Edge is a customizable version of Tecplot 360 that can be easily integrated with other third-party applications. With Tecplot Edge, developers can integrate proven XY, 2D and 3D plotting capabilities into their solver, simulation code or analysis application. Tecplot Edge differs from low-level graphics libraries in that developers get access to a complete visualization application out-of-the-box. This removes the burden of coding and debugging visualization functionality.

News The UK National Centre for Atmospheric Science (NCAS) will use the recently released STAR-CD v4.0 in a project aimed eventually at 5-day forecasting of urban air quality, dispersion and heat transfer.

Professor Castro, who with Dr Zhengtong Xie led the evaluation of commercial software at Southampton, notes that “partly for technical reasons but also because they have been the most engaged in the collaboration, CD-adapco has been identified as the vendor most appropriate for NCAS’s needs”.

Events: Powerful Flow Simulation for Oil & Gas Separation Technology
Posted Tue December 12, 2006 @03:55PM

CD-adapco Last chance to register for tomorrow's free webinar focusing on the competitive advantage that can be gained through the application of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) to separator design and operation. A range of compelling examples will be provided, that clearly demonstrate how flow simulation can reduce cost and increase the efficiency of separation processes, including retrofitting existing separators and preventing damage due to sloshing loads.

CFD enables designers and operators of separation equipment to visualize the complex flow processes that occur within a separator and to determine exactly how effectively that separator will perform under a range of operating conditions. By applying CFD technology early in the design process, separator manufacturers are able to optimize the performance of a separator, long before the first physical prototype is ever created.
