Print version Email story Tweet story
Announcements The organising committee are pleased to announce that the
Third International conference on CFD in the Minerals and Process Industries will be held at :
Hilton on the Park
Melbourne, AUSTRALIA
between the 10-12 December 2003.
Conference Web Site

The conference will cover the application of CFD in the mineral processing, metal production, power generation, chemicals, food, oil and gas and other industries. CFD is proving an invaluable tool in the design and optimisation of equipment and processes in these industries.

The conference continues a successful series of meetings aimed at promoting and advancing the application of CFD in the minerals and process industries where technologies often involve challenging aspects such as multiphase flow, combustion, phase change, non-Newtonian flow, etc.

The program will present papers on a wide variety of applications including coal combustion, hydrocyclones, casting, fluid beds, smelting, furnaces, slurries, steelmaking, crystallisation, stirred tanks, granular flow and many others.

Authors wishing to submit a paper are required to send a brief 200 word abstract to

The deadline for abstract submission is 28th February, 2003. Further information on abstract submission can be found under author information from the conference web page.

A short flyer on the conference can be downloaded from

News The 3rd International Computational Fluid Dynamics Conference is to be held in London, England, on 6&7th February 2003.

The subject is CFD Technology in Ship Hydrodynamics. CFD 2003 will follow a similar format to CFD 97 and CFD 99, the first two conferences in the series, which were successfully held in Ulsteinvik, Norway.

Within the broad theme, presentations will be divided into three main areas: CFD in relation to hull form, in relation to propellers and other propulsors, and to hull/propulsor interaction. Development of CFD software and the underlying mathematical models and techniques will be covered, as will comparisons between computational predictions, test tank results and full scale data.

In addition to the conference papers, there will be opportunities for delegates to discuss topics of mutual interest, a demonstration workshop for CFD software and a social programme.

This conference is being organised by The Royal Institution of Naval Architects on behalf of Riviera Maritime Media Ltd.

For further information, please contact: Mark Staunton-Lambert, Technical Director
The Royal Institution of Naval Architects
10 Upper Belgrave Street, London, SW1X 8BQ, England

FLUENT Achieves Motor Racing CFD Pole Position
Posted Tue December 24, 2002 @02:33PM
Print version Email story Tweet story
News At the end of another motor racing season, Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) software from Fluent Inc. is again proving to be in pole position for motor racing aerodynamic and allied flow simulations. Successes by FLUENT users in Formula 1, Indy Car and NASCAR racing have kept Fluent's code at the forefront of this highly demanding global industry. FLUENT is still the code of choice for nearly every motor racing team in the world due to the code's reliability, accuracy and ease of use. These credentials have helped to make FLUENT the fastest growing CFD code used within the worldwide automotive community.

The 2002 season has also seen the Ferrari Formula 1 Race Team score a repeat double with their driver Michael Schumacher becoming World Champion for the fifth time - the third with the Scuderia - and the race team itself winning the coveted Constructors' Championship for the fourth time in a row by an unprecedented margin.

Recently the Ferrari team has enhanced its CFD capabilities by signing an enhanced 3-year agreement with Fluent Italia to maintain Fluent as its CFD Technical Partner of choice. Fluent's leading edge CFD software continues to meet the exacting demands of the Maranello based motor racing team in its quest for ongoing success and motor racing technical excellence.
