Application: CFD Used in Redesigning Shuttle Tank for Safety
Posted Thu October 02, 2003 @08:24AM

Application The Huntsville (AL) Times has this story about the redesign effort underway at NASA Marshall Space Flight Center on the space shuttle's external fuel tank.

Marshall engineers have been working on short- and long-range plans that will eliminate known problem areas on the tank where foam comes off during flight, which led to the destruction of the shuttle Columbia Feb. 1. They eventually plan to move the complex fuel lines and cables, which need excessive amounts of insulating foam, from the outside of the tank.

Lab technicians at Marshall in Huntsville have been trying to design improved ways to apply foam to the tank by hand and to devise test programs for a newly shaped external tank, said Neil Otte, Marshall's external tank deputy program manager.

Post Processing Amtec Engineering, Inc., a data visualization software developer, today announced the release of Tecplot 10. Tecplot is technical plotting software with extensive XY, 2- and 3-D capabilities for visualizing data from analyses, simulations and experiments. Tecplot 10 marks a major milestone for Amtec, which first released Tecplot in 1988.

The Version 10 release includes new capabilities in three key areas: plotting tools, data management, and the user interface. These enhancements help give Tecplot users complete control to explore, analyze and communicate their results. This flexibility is the key differentiator between Tecplot and competing data visualization products, which restrict or limit the options users have to create the exact plot that they want.

Application By Keith McCormack,
Department of Medical Physics, University of Sheffield, UK
and Ian Jones,

Using state-of-the-art modeling techniques, COPHIT software simulates the entire dynamic drug delivery process for particulate, aerosol and gaseous drug types, from the device, through the lungs to the pulmonary system. The software is designed for use by pharmaceutical companies and clinicians who need to predict and optimize inhaled therapies, and allows deposition and uptake to be customized for particular drugs, delivery devices, diseases and even individual patients. It has been developed within COPHIT, which is a project part-funded by the Commission of the European Communities.

The software is the first known implementation of a fully-coupled 1-D/3-D model of the complete pulmonary drug delivery process.
