Dodge Uses CFD to Get Back Into NASCAR Racing
Posted Mon June 04, 2001 @01:55PM
Print version Email story Tweet story
Application When Dodge (DaimlerChrysler) decided to sponsor a NASCAR race car after an absence of more than 20 years, they used CAD/CAM/CFD to design the new car.
“We will have gone from an idea to competitive race cars in 500 days. Without these new tools, we couldn’t have done it.”

...CFD program can also help the teams by creating situations that aren’t possible at the track or in a wind tunnel. Simulating a rolling-road situation, for example, allows engineers to predict how two or Using supercomputers at DaimlerChrysler headquarters, engineers check aerodynamic properties (top) as well as various under-the-skin elements of the car. more cars of similar (two Dodges) and different shapes (they also have the computer files on Pontiac, Chevrolet and Ford) would behave in a drafting situation and how cars would behave when racing close to a wall. They also can predict the behavior of a Dodge with its front end blocked off with tape (for qualifying), partially blocked (cool days) or open (hot days).

ANSYS CFX The AEA Technology board of directors has announced that they are in exclusive talks with an undisclosed party to buy the Hyprotech business from AEA Technology Engineering Software.

A completed Hyprotech sale would leave CFX as the sole business of AEA Technology Engineering Software because the profitable n-Code business was moved over to AEA Technology Rail last year.

...the Board considers that the disposal of Hyprotech offers more value than continuing to pursue strategic partnerships. Exclusive discussions regarding the disposal of the Hyprotech business are proceeding with the aim of agreeing terms in this half of the group's financial year.

The performance of the CFX business is improving and the Board expects to sell this business during the course of 2002.
There is no mention of possible parties interested in aquiring CFX.

Application Engineers at Schlumberger Industries have used STAR-CD to simulate the fluid-structure interaction in several flowmeter designs. The transient analyses covered both turbine and positive displacement systems and utilized advances in mesh deformation and non-conformal sliding interfaces.
In the recent study, CFD and mechanical analysis was applied in the study of transient fluid structure interaction for measuring elements or flow control devices comprising moving parts. The principles developed were general and could be extended to include small or large internal deformations of the moving components.

Application The folks at AEA Technology Engineering Software have been kind enough to share a case study with us.
Many of Eastman's manufacturing processes involve liquid and gas-phase unit operations with mixing, reactions, separation and non-Newtonian flow. The company frequently uses CFX software to improve the reliability of these processes and to add value to the various plant sites.

This case study, describes an example of how CFX helped to solve a recurring problem, and saved Eastman US$2M in the process.
The case study is especially interesting due to the use of grid adaptation in an industrial application. Read the full article in the features section.

SGI Announces Itanium-Based Linux System
Posted Tue May 29, 2001 @01:22PM
Print version Email story Tweet story
Hardware SGI has announced that their Silicon Graphics 750 system for Linux will be available in July. Based on the 64-bit Intel Itanium processor, the system is designed for high-performance computing.
The Silicon Graphics 750 features advanced computational processing in a compact form factor capable of scaling up to two processors and 16GB of memory. The availability of the Silicon Graphics 750 will accommodate and enable the most demanding power users in the technical and high-performance computing markets such as computational fluid dynamics, mechanical computer-aided engineering (MCAE), computational chemistry, scientific computing and visualization.
This is SGI's first entry into the Itanium-based workstation arena. Given that the Itanium was designed to be scalable up to 512 processors, we can expect some serious hardware soon.
