News The CD adapco Group invites you to a free workshop:

Predicting fuel cell behavior with CFD
October 11th, 10:00 am -- 3:00 pm
Bellevue Hilton
Bellevue, Washington

The keynote speaker will be Professor John Van Zee, of the University of South Carolina. Prof. Van Zee will discuss application of CFD coupled to electrochemistry modeling to PEM fuel cell design and analysis. By coupling electrochemistry models with the advanced CFD capability in CD adapco Group's solver STAR-CD, it is possible to get significant insight into issues such as heat transfer, fluid flow, membrane saturation and electrical current density.

New Software: Fluent Delivers Indoor Environmental Airflow Modeling
Posted Wed September 04, 2002 @03:36PM
Print version Email story Tweet story
News 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.
