Fluent Announces Remote Simulation Facility
Posted Wed August 21, 2002 @01:25PM
Print version Email story Tweet story
News Fluent has announced the general availability of its Remote Simulation Facility (RSF). The Fluent Remote Simulation Facility lets users exploit supercomputer capacity using "pay as you go" methods through a highly secure Internet portal.

The Fluent RSF is specifically designed to handle highly parallel simulations, often characterized by large volumes of sensitive customer data, over the Internet. It is optimized for large-scale simulations and/or the concurrent execution of many simulations, such as those found in sensitivity analysis or optimization. The facility uses state-of-the-art security and systems infrastructure technology from providers including Cisco, Sun, SGI, and Hewlett Packard. This service is ideal for Fluent CFD users who require occasional "surge" capacity for time-critical simulations, or periodic simulations of large models.

News Engineering Software is proud to announce that it has developed new engineering tools that quickly, easily and reliably calculate thermodynamic and transport properties of gaseous, liquid and solid species, contain coefficients for the calculation of physical properties (the user has the capability to use the coefficients to carry out independent engineering calculations involving physical properties of various species), carry out steam approximations for both saturated and superheated areas and analyze power cycles, power cycle components/processes and compressible flow.

STAR-Works Reviewed

News CADSERVER has posted a review of the STAR-Works package from the CD Adapco Group.

As the name implies, STAR-Works combines the best in class features of STAR-CD and SolidWorks. It aims to meet the demand of engineers for a single CAD and CFD solution to speed product development, cut costs and improve product quality.

CD Adapco has made some advances since I last saw StarCD, but in all honesty, it still has a long way to go before it will see the majority of SolidWorks users becoming interested. But perhaps this is isn't there real aim. At present, Star-Works is a fantastic way for an analyst to take SolidWorks data, and prepare it for use within StarCD.
