Posted Tue April 09, 2002 @01:07PM
Print version Email story Tweet story
News Do you need an introduction (or re-introduction) to fluid mechanics, heat transfer and computational fluid dynamics? Starting May 1st, 2002, Fluent Inc. will begin offering special two-day courses designed specifically for this purpose. The main goal for our Fluid Mechanics and CFD Review course is to help the users of CFD to be more successful by having a more thorough knowledge of the underlying physics and numerical techniques that are present within CFD studies.

It is assumed that participants will have a technical education and background, but not necessarily an engineering degree. The course will be taught lecture-style, and the topics will be covered in a general fashion with no particular bias towards any CFD software package.

Visit the course website for the course description, dates, locations, course fee information, and to register online.

You may also register by contacting Fluent's Training Coordinator, Kelly Carter, at 603-643-2600 or

News At a recent North Texas AIAA meeting, Dr. Pradeep Raj of Lockheed Martin Aeronautics Company made a presentation entitled "Aircraft Design in the 21st Century: Implications for Design Methods".

In his presentation, Dr. Raj noted that tactical aircraft have exhibited a factor of four increase in cost every ten years. Likewise, commercial aircraft costs have risen at a rate greater than the carrying capacity thereby driving the yield per passenger down.

Dr. Raj proposes an answer to these rising costs: "lean" production.
