Geometry Stephen Ferguson, Joel Davison and Jon Lewin

Dealing with the consequences of ‘dirty’ or complicated CAD data has long been the biggest bottleneck in the CAE process and, until recently, was the single largest obstacle preventing the routine implementation of numerical simulation early in the industrial design process.

Although the route from CAD model to CAE solution has been much improved in recent years, with the introduction of better translators and CAD-embedded CAE simulation technology, there still exists a significant group of problems where CAD geometries are too big or complex to be handled easily.

Application The Fluidics and Biocomplexity Group at the University of Oxford focuses on problems in medicine and biology and on drawing inspiration from phenomena and mechanisms observed there to design devices that are of practical use.

An example of this approach is the investigation on cilia motion. The cilia we study are biological microfluidic actuators, long cellular protrusions that oscillate, often in a complicated fashion, and set the fluid around them in motion.

In a fiercely competitive market, organizations are continually seeking tools that provide them with strategic advantages. CFD can be such a tool for organizations that have design applications which concerns fluid dynamics problems.

Substantial efforts have been underway since 1980’s to make CFD an integral part of the design process. In fact, government research labs and commercial corporations in both aerospace and auto industries have been using CFD for decades and each one of them has probably been using number of in-house and commercially developed CFD codes simultaneously. Other industries have followed suit and CFD use is continuously on the rise.
