Hardware Sun Microsystems has announced a new workstation with the industry's highest floating point performance.

The Sun Blade 2000 workstation features dual 1.05 Ghz UltraSPARC(R) III CU processors, mature 64-bit architecture, high-end 3D visualization capabilities, and runs the Solaris[tm] 8 Operating Environment.

The new workstation is designed to meet the needs of users in a number of technical disciplines who require desktop processing power capable of handling the manipulation and analysis of extremely large data sets.

Additionally, as this press release states, Sun holds the number one position for technical computing revenue generated (workstations and technical computing servers combined) in 2001.

Application: CFD Improves Wet Scrubber
Posted Wed March 13, 2002 @07:46PM

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.
