News Desktop Engineering has reviewed Fluent for CATIA V5 and found the integration of the two software packages to be well done.
The first thing to understand is that the whole system is built into and takes place within CATIA V5 ó there are no external applications. This means that itís built to both take advantage of the existing simulation and analysis tools already within CATIA V5 and to extend their use for a CFD workflow. As such, if youíre familiar with CATIA V5, then the starting point for any review, the interface, will be immediately familiar. The Fluent for CATIA tools are found within the analysis and simulation application group.

News Biocontainment facilities architect Jon Crane describes the mixed results CFD modeling has had on the design of laboratories and animal rooms.

CFD has been used successfully for approximately ten years to identify how air flows in animal rooms in various design situations such as high supply diffusers and low exhaust or high supply diffusers and high exhaust. The benefits allow better design for more uniform temperatures, control of allergens, and minimization of dead air spaces.
