New Software: CD adapco adds CFD to UGS NX Software
Posted Thu April 29, 2004 @02:52PM
Print version Email story Tweet story
News The CD adapco Group announces the release of two new software tools, STAR-NX and Comet-NX, and their integration with the NX software portfolio from UGS PLM Solutions. These solutions will enable engineers to speed product development, cut costs and improve product design.

STAR-NX is a plug-in for the Group’s core computational fluid dynamics (CFD) product, STAR-CD, whereas Comet-NX is a complete product specifically designed to encourage and quickly assess upfront “what-if” design changes. In both cases, integration of CFD within the NX environment enables easier parametric design studies to be carried out with enhanced automation and bi-directional associativity between CAD and CFD models.

News Fluent Inc. announces the release of Iceboard 1.0, its new board-level thermal validation tool for printed circuit board designers. Although Iceboard is 100% compatible with Fluent’s comprehensive thermal modeling software, Icepak®, it is a stand-alone tool, intended only for board designers.

“Iceboard’s sole purpose is to help board designers to quickly verify their designs for thermal compliance. Board designers will appreciate the ease with which they can import their neutral ECAD files from software like Cadence Allegro or Mentor BoardStation and filter the data,” says Iceboard product manager Rajesh Nair. “And when they have their results, they can easily export HTML reports and Icepak-compatible files for further processing in a seamless, integrated fashion,” he concludes.

Hardware techman wrote in with some HP news:

In conjunction with the upcoming one-year anniversary of the AMD Opteron processor, HP has extended its Linux-based high-performance cluster offerings to include an HP ProLiant server based on the AMD Opteron processor.

With the new HP LC 3000 series clusters, customers can avoid the complex and labor-intensive process of building and deploying server clusters, while improving performance and scalability and lowering the total cost of ownership.

The company also announced record-breaking performance benchmarks and the availability of the industry-standard HP ProLiant DL585 server, which combines AMD Opteron processor technology, enhanced management capabilities and outstanding uptime features in a system ideal for customers with compute-intensive workloads.

News Two new series of CFX Seminars in the US Midwest and New England have just been announced. Join us for a half-day educational seminar, “Advanced CFD Technologies Featuring ANSYS CFX.” At this free seminar, you’ll learn how you can tackle CFD challenges—from pre-processing to solution to post-processing—quickly, accurately and cost-effectively.

Using a combination of real-world customer examples and live demonstrations, our experts will discuss how CFX software from ANSYS can shorten product design times and improve product development processes.

You'll learn how the advanced technology in CFX provides quick and accurate results for complex, real-world problems through:

  • A single solver for all applications
  • Coupled multigrid solver
  • Robust turbulence models
  • Accurate modeling and simulation of combustion and multiphase flows
  • Superior scalability resulting from parallel solver technology

Application: CFD Analysis Helps Develop Better Oil Containment Boom
Posted Tue April 27, 2004 @04:49PM

Application By Chang-Fa An DaimlerChrysler Technology Center
Auburn Hills, Michigan

Researchers using computational fluid dynamics (CFD) analysis have improved the velocity at which oil containment booms can operate successfully, increasing the current level of under 0.4 meters/second, where traditional booms fail, to a theoretically possible 2.0 meters/second. The boom velocity is critical because oil spill cleanup is limited by how fast the booms can be towed before hydrodynamic forces cause them to fail. To develop a boom that operates at faster velocities, oil companies have been evaluating a number of new designs, including angled booms and porous nets that operate below and upstream of traditional booms. Previously, researchers performed water channel tests to evaluate new designs but this added significantly to development costs. Now, CFD simulation is used instead. This alternative allows researchers to simulate many design alternatives quickly and inexpensively. Recently, researchers have also begun to animate CFD results to enhance their understanding of boom failure mechanisms.

News Please join Fluent Inc. and Dr. Allan Myerson, Philip Danforth Armour Professor of Engineering and Provost at the Illinois Institute of Technology on May 21, 2004 at 2:00 EST for this online seminar on calculating PSD coupled with fluid mechanics, with a focus on crystallization processes. This webinar is open to attendees from the US and Canada only.

Join population balance experts Dr. Allan Myerson of IIT and Dr. Kumar Dhanasekharan of Fluent Inc. in this seminar to learn about predicting size distribution along with transport phenomena and chemical reactions.

Who Should Attend this Presentation?

This seminar will provide an introduction to population balance methods in CFD. Engineers, engineering managers, and scientists dealing with particle/ bubble/ droplet size distribution in their process or with applications such as crystallization, fluidization, bubble columns, etc. would benefit from this informative webinar.

No prior experience with population balance methods or CFD is necessary.

To register, visit the webinar website.
