Help Desk puli writes "Hi,

I'm trying out a case in a 2-node GNU/Linux cluster using Fluent 6.1.22.

The procedure I follow is:

1. File -> Run

Under Versions activate Double Precision, Parallel Under Communicator select Socket ('pnet' in command line)

2. Parallel -> Network -> Configure

Under Host Entry, I Enter the Hostname and Username for the second node. Now I click on add. It shows up in the Available Hosts list. I select the new Node and click on spawn."

New Software: Hanley Announces WingTail Calculator 2.0

News Hanley Innovations, a leader in aerodynamics conceptual and preliminary design software, announces the availability of WingTail Calculator 2.0 and WingTail Calculator Plus, 2.0.The Wing Tail Calculator accurately computes lift, drag (vortex and profile) and moment (about the center of gravity) for isolated airfoils, single wings or two-wing systems (or keel-rudder interaction). It can also predict the neutral point (or aerodynamic center) location and the angle of trim.

The WingTail Calculator uses the vortex lattice method (based on vortex rings) for non-planar lifting surface analysis; a linear strength vortex panel methods for airfoil analysis; a novel solution of the ordinary differential equation form of the boundary layer equation for computing profile drag. The resulting formulation naturally treats cambered, tapered and twisted surfaces. WingTail can be used to solve problems related to wing and control surface sizing, aerodynamics loading (lift & drag forces), cross section shapes (airfoils), control surface placement and stability determination.

Print version Email story Tweet story
Open Source A new open source CFD solver is now available on Source Forge.

ADFC is a GPL (GNU Public License) solver that performs fluid dynamic simulation on a computer, helping professionals and researchers that need a virtual wind tunnel for their work or research. The program is able to solve Navier-Stokes equations for incompressible viscous flow in 2D and 3D geometries.

This software tool provides much information about the cases it solves: speed field, pressure field, speed divergence, drag and lift coefficients, contaminant transport, pressure and speed gradient figures, turbulence distribution, particle tracing, and so on.

News NAFEMS, The International Association for the Engineering Analysis Community, recently held the first in a series of meetings to discuss the expansion of its North American Chapter. With some 700 member companies worldwide, the organization is the only truly independent authority on the use of computer modelling and simulation methods, and is widely respected throughout the analysis world.

The meeting, which was held on May 19th in California, was a great success, with a lively discussion about the requirements and demands of the North American NAFEMS membership, as well as the wider analysis community.
