Print version Email story Tweet story
News Intelligent Light has been awarded a NASA Phase 1 SBIR contract to develop a specialized prototype post-processing system designed for large rotorcraft acoustics problems.

This system is designated as RCAAPS - Rotorcraft Computational Aero-Acoustics Post-processing System. It is designed to expedite the exploration of large transient datasets that result from multi-physics based (i.e. Large-Eddy Simulation with aero-elasticity and acoustics) simulations as it pertains to rotorcraft performance predictions especially maneuver.

News The first International Oil and Gas CFD Conference (IOCC) has confirmed the increasing importance the oil and gas industry is placing on CFD and other CAE technologies. The event surpassed all expectations with 130 delegates attending the conference, held on 30th November – 1st December in London. Plans are already being made for an even bigger IOCC in two year’s time.

The event was organised by ANSYS Inc., a global leader in CAE technologies, including CFD, in response to a significant increase and expansion in the use of CFD in the oil and gas industry over recent years. Delegates included company presidents, managers, CFD and process engineers and professors, there to learn about best practice, share information and ideas on the application of CFD, and to see the very latest developments in the technology. The event had a truly international flavour, with attendees from 16 countries in Europe, North and South America, Asia Pacific and the Middle East.
