Print version Email story Tweet story
News Please join Fluent Inc. for an online seminar entitled Virtual Prototyping of MOCVD processes, and thermal management of LEDs using Computational Fluid Dynamics, on June 23, 2004 at 2 p.m.

This one-hour presentation will demonstrate the cost-effective use of CFD in a detailed 3-dimensional reacting flow analysis, thermal management, and simulation of LED system components

Dr. Ted Mihopoulos from Lumileds Lighting will describe examples of how FLUENT is used to develop understanding in the fundamental processes involved in the LED manufacturing processes. Fluent Inc. will discuss thermal modeling, and efficient cooling systems for LEDs using both passive, and active cooling.

News ANSYS, Inc., a global innovator of simulation software and technologies designed to optimize product development processes, has announced a four year Official Supplier contract with Team Alinghi, the Swiss sailing team leveraging ANSYS' integrated simulation solutions as a key component of its strategy to defend the America's Cup in 2007.

Team Alinghi now is placing even greater demands on virtual prototyping tools because the design rules for this competition have undergone significant changes, and the number of variables affecting the boat's performance has changed dramatically. In turn, Team Alinghi is relying upon ANSYS products and services for its system-level computer modeling and simulation needs. In addition to implementing ANSYS Workbench and ANSYS Mechanical, Team Alinghi also plans to use ANSYS computational fluid dynamics (CFD) tools such as ANSYS ICEM CFD and CFX-5.

Print version Email story Tweet story
Post Processing CEI has added support for the Macintosh OS X platform to Harpoon, the extreme meshing program that the company launched in March 2003.

Harpoon turns a CAD file into a finished mesh with three clicks of a mouse. Proprietary meshing algorithms enable the software to process up to two million cells per minute on standard hardware. A HEX-dominant structure within Harpoon ensures better quality cells, even if CAD data is poor. And, Harpoon automatically checks the generated mesh for inconsistencies and repairs any sub-par cells.
