Application: CFD Improves Wet Scrubber
Posted Wed March 13, 2002 @07:46PM
Print version Email story Tweet story
Application Power Engineering has an article on the use of CFD to evaluate the performance of wet scrubbers at Babcock & Wilcox (B&W).

Wet scrubbers remove sulfur dioxide from industrial flue gas by passing the gas through a slurry spray. Because the design of wet scrubbers depends upon the fuel being burned and the amount of sulfur in the fuel, B&W must custom design each scrubber they sell. When designing a scrubber the engineer has to balance a number of competing factors including its geometry, gas flow velocity, sulfur dioxide removal rate, slurry droplet carry-over rate and the pressure drop.

Eye-Popping 3D Displays: From Cheap to Steep
Posted Fri March 08, 2002 @07:23PM
Print version Email story Tweet story
Hardware Cadence has posted a review of stereoscopic displays. Stereoscopic displays provide the illusion of 3D space from two slightly different 2D renderings of a 3D object.

It used to be that the user needed to wear special glasses which filtered the 2D images for the left and right eye. However, new technology allows the images to be viewed correctly without glasses on special LCD monitors.

Many 3D visualization packages support stereoscopic display and the effect can be quite dramatic.
