News Time is running out to register for the STAR European Conference. If you haven't registered already, here are 5 reasons why you should attend:

  1. Automation is the theme of the conference. By attending you'll learn the secret of how to use CAE more effectively in your organization: perform more simulations for less effort and begin exploring the whole design spaces rather than a few points.
  2. Top Agenda: Learn from the experts as over 40 leading industrial presenters explore their CAE processes in detail and demonstrate the tangible benefits that they have realized through adopting an automation philosophy for CAE simulation.

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).

Print version Email story Tweet story
Announcements The AIAA Turbulence Modeling Discussion Group is conducting a survey of Turbulence Modeling in CFD Today - where it is... where it is headed, etc. Responses will help establish consensus views that may influence the future research priorities of funding agencies.

If you can find some time (10-15 minutes or so), it would be appreciated if you could give your opinions about this important topic. Deadline is March 31.
