Application: Sculptor Software Aids in Advanced Aircraft Design
Posted Mon April 07, 2008 @09:33AM
Print version Email story Tweet story
Application Diamond Aircraft Industries, one of the world’s premier producers of single and twin-engine propeller aircraft and single-engine jet aircraft, is currently developing a single-engine Very Light Jet (VLJ), the “D-Jet”. During the development phase, a suite of advanced Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) technologies is applied in order to speed up the engineering process.

Optimal Solutions Software, LLC, with the use of its unique Sculptor real-time CFD design deformation technology, teamed up with ANSYS, Inc., a global innovator of simulation software and technologies, and used that Company’s FLUENT® software to assist in the CFD optimization of the wing and nacelle of the D-Jet.

Application By Lucas A. Kostetzer and Leonardo P. Rangel,
ESSS, Florianopolis, Brazil
Joana B. Souza,
Holcim Brazil, Sao Paulo, Brazil

For nearly all products, it can be said that the quality of the raw materials being used in creating those products affects the quality of the final item. In cement production, control of the incoming raw materials influences not only the end product, but also the efficiency of the manufacturing process and its associated costs. If not carefully managed, the size of the solid particles used in creating cement can have a significant effect on efficiency of the cement production line.
