ANSYS FLUENT Fluent Inc is pleased to announce two one-day seminars, held October 28 and 29, 2002 in our Evanston, IL office intended for those who are new to CFD and/or those who would like to learn more about the application of CFD in the process equipment design industries.

The main goals of these seminars are to make you more successful using CFD by having a more thorough knowledge of the underlying physics and numerical techniques in our software, as well as to teach engineers, scientists, and managers about the latest technical developments and how they can be used to model and improve process unit operations.

New Software: Fluent Delivers Indoor Environmental Airflow Modeling
Posted Wed September 04, 2002 @03:36PM

ANSYS FLUENT Fluent Inc. announces the availability of Airpak/RSF - a new service that significantly reduces the entry cost for using engineering simulation software in the design of buildings and other facilities. This new subscription-based service delivers Airpak airflow modeling software through a secure internet portal. The user pays for simulation time, rather than having to purchase additional hardware and software. This pay-as-you-go option lets building designers get started with powerful airflow modeling tools for less than $6,000 allowing costs to be scaled to project needs. Airpak helps building designers to better understand and visualize the performance of various ventilation systems. It quickly and accurately simulates room airflow patterns, temperature distribution, contaminant distribution, ventilation effectiveness, and thermal comfort so designers can optimize their ventilation systems design and minimize risk exposure well before construction begins.

"I saw the value of airflow modeling years ago, but couldn't manage the upfront costs of the better simulation packages. The Airpak/RSF lets me have the best of both worlds. Now, I can scale my airflow modeling usage and costs to fit my project workload, and get all the computing horsepower I need from any location, at any time. My clients appreciate being able to visualize how the design will perform, and I value the competitive advantage it gives me in the proposal process," says Paul Martin of Sigma Psi Consulting.

An Argument for Open Source CFD
Posted Tue September 03, 2002 @04:42PM
Print version Email story Tweet story
Open Source Stéphane Zaleski has made an argument for the open sourcing of CFD programs developed in academic institutions.

The Open Source software development model has gained popularity on its merits of being more robust and agile. The Open Source movement has grown out of the "hacker" culture -- one which believes that information should be freely available to all. This contrasts strongly with academic culture in which information is shared with the initiated.

Mr. Zaleski notes that there are rather potent reasons for which academics and their institutions refrain from openly distributing of the code.

  • The maintenance and documentation efforts.
  • The issue of commercialisation.
  • The risks and rewards for the authors' reputations
He examines each in turn.
