    News Stock trading in Parametric Technology was halted yesterday after a severe drop in stock price due to a second quarter earnings warning.

    Citing continued weakness in worldwide manufacturing, the Needham, Mass.-based company said it expects revenue for the second quarter ending March 30 to be about 5% to 10% lower than the $208 million consensus estimate.

    Post Processing Visual Solutions, Inc. today announced the successful release of ParaVista version 1.0. This initial offering will provide product engineers with a powerful tool for interactively visualizing and better understanding the performance of their designs.

    ParaVista is a state-of-the-art visualization software system that operates on an entire set of parametric analysis data files rather than just a single steady-state solution. For visualizing parametric data, ParaVista replaces the tedious process of paging through several individual plots with the ability to interactively fly through the parametric data space while viewing the results.

    ParaVista 1.0 gives engineers doing parametric studies the ability to visualize their design analysis results in a more efficient and comprehensive way than previously possible.
    -- Fergus Merritt, Technical Director of Visual Solutions, Inc.

    Application: CFD Vital for McLaren F1 team
    Posted Sun March 24, 2002 @07:54PM
    Print version Email story Tweet story
    Application CFD is playing an ever more vital role for the McLaren Formula 1 team. Their biggest CFD model involves the simulation of the airflow over every external aerodynamic surface of the whole car, including the wing mirrors.

    The McLaren team utilizes two Sun Technical Compute Farm (Sun TCF) systems for their number-crunching power. With the Sun TCF systems, this can now be completed in just three days, a huge competitive advantage when compared to the several weeks that the analysis required in the past.

    The practical advantage of this extra capability was dramatically illustrated last season when the all important front wing was completely re-designed, tested, manufactured and fitted to the car during a two-week interlude between Grand Prix races.

    F1 is all about speed, not just speed on the track but also, increasingly, speed of development off the track,
