New Software: Unified Process Management System for CFD codes
Posted Thu April 18, 2002 @05:54PM

NASA Khaled S. Abdol-Hamid writes:

The Unified Process Management System (UPMS) is a valuable CFD tool that utilizes NASA’s CFD codes: PAB3D, CFL3D and TLNS3D.

Each of these CFD codes has a specific format for input files. So far, the choice of a particular CFD code depends upon its reliability, its ease of use and the availability of technical support. However, it is difficult to find a CFD code that combines all of these requirements. Simple modifications in problem definition often require extensive alterations to these formats. Often, users must be trained by CFD code suppliers to enable them to model the problem correctly, and to use the available options in the code efficiently. Familiarization with more than one code becomes difficult.

The UPMS alleviates these difficulties with the use of an expert Graphical User Interface (GUI) system. The system also includes interactive adaptive grid capabilities and grid modification processes. The significance of this work is its flexibility in allowing these CFD grid structured codes to be coupled with the UPMS without any modifications whatsoever to the CFD solvers. It automatically generates documentation of code-independent project/ problem setup in engineering terms.

The UPMS was written in the object-oriented and highly portable JAVA programming language. The project is completed under fund from SBIR. You can get your copy of UPMS from http://www.asm-usa.com/software/UPMS/ASM-UPMS.html

Open Source Sandia has released the source code to their optimization toolkit DAKOTA. DAKOTA provides a flexible interface between simulation software and the latest algorithms for optimization, uncertainty quantification, parameter estimation, design of experiments and sensitivity analysis.

Sandia researchers have been developing DAKOTA for about eight years. The initial work focused on optimization methods, but has since branched out into uncertainty quantification and other areas. It has been used internally at Sandia and externally by researchers at Los Alamos and Lawrence Livermore national laboratories in conjunction with DOE’s Accelerated Strategic Computing Initiative (ASCI) program.

Application: EASA helps new burner project

Application

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.
