by Frederic Aguile and Alain Quinqueneau, Gaz de France

How do we make our CFX models and results available to our project partners?

That was the critical question when we wrote our proposal for funding under the European Union Brite-Euram programme. In the subsequent project, called MECBURN, a consortium of a gas supplier, burner manufacturers and end users aim to develop a new generation of gas-fired industrial burners. Success depends on close collaboration between modellers and experimentalists to refine the design in the light of a detailed understanding of burner operation at different scales and thermal ratings. So good communication and easy accessibility of the models and their predictions are crucial if the benefits of CFD modelling are going to be realized.

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
