Print version Email story Tweet story
News The CD adapco Group has announced that it has become a Spatial CAA V5 Adopter and will create two new CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) 'add-ins', STAR-CAT5 and Comet-CAT5, designed to bring the benefit of advanced CFD technology to users of CATIA V5.

Michael Dickens, CD adapco Group's Director of Business Development explains: "We have developed tightly integrated CFD 'ad-ins' that facilitate parametric design studies through enhanced automation and bi-directional associativity between CAD and CFD models. We are particularly interested in delivering this technology to CATIA V5 users since market research has placed this environment as the preferred choice among our clients as their CAD system for the future."

Keith Mountain, Vice President of Marketing, for Spatial adds, ďWe are pleased to have CD adapco Group as a CAA V5 Adopter. Their experience in the CFD arena is a welcome addition to the increasing number of solutions available to the CATIA V5 user community.Ē

Help Desk m_anil writes "Iím M.Anil, doing M.Tech Chemical, IIT, Roorkee, India. Iím new is to the field of CFD, Iím doing my thesis on CFD of three phase bubble column using CFX-5.6, Iím getting satisfactory results for velocity profile and volume fraction but pressure profile is coming wrong ie; pressure at inlet is lower than pressure at outlet. My system is air ,water and glass beads. At inlet boundary ie sparger Iím specifying velocities and at outlet boundary Iím specifying as degassing condition. Iím also considering buoyancy in vertical direction as Ėg (-9.81 m/s2). So can anyone suggest what is the problem in this? My email id is
