Blue Ridge Looks to Cluster Technology to Boost CFD Performance

News Develop3D has posted an article describing CFdesign performance on Microsoft Windows HPC networks.

Blue Ridge told me last year that in a single multi core workstation one can expect speed increases in CFdesign of up to 140% (Intel) to 160% (AMD), though I would imagine Intel has now got faster with the introduction of the Core i7, which receives its data directly from system RAM rather than going via a front side bus (FSB).

News CD-adapco will host a webinar on Computational Fluid Dynamics in Offshore Oil and Gas on March 19, 2009 at 15:00 GMT (11 AM EDT, 16:00 CET).

The ongoing push for more new produceable oil and gas reservoirs is leading the industry into greater offshore depths and harsher environments. The challenge of developing and producing from fields at depths greater than 5,000 feet requires workers to operate unproven technology in harsher environments (greater ocean pressure, lower temperature, different well fluid temperatures, pressures, compositions).
