Fluid Simulations 101
Posted Fri June 11, 2004 @04:41PM
Print version Email story Tweet story
News Machine Design has posted an article introducing CFD to engineers familiar with structural analysis but not fluid dynamics analysis. The article argues that CFD is becoming more important because "even bench-level engineers can apply Cosmos-FloWorks [CFD software] to frequently encountered engineering problems".

The article further states that "after examining the software, engineers will find the CFD is easy to use thanks to a close link with CAD software and a wizard that speeds model setup".

Finally, the article discusses the concept of goal based simulations which "let users assign a sort of digital sensor to a component or surface of interest".

News Blue Ridge Numerics, the fastest growing CFD software company in the world, announced today that its CFdesign v7.0 software is available as an interoperability solution with Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire 2.0, the newly introduced product design and development solution from PTC, the Product Development Company.

"Blue Ridge Numerics puts CFD upfront in the design engineering process where it can have the greatest impact on product quality, cost, profitability, and performance," said Iain Michel, Senior Director of Business Development at PTC. "CFdesign v7.0 is an important component in the PTC Product Development System."

Blue Ridge Numerics will provide live demonstrations of CFdesign v7.0 at the PTC/USER World Event in Nashville, June 13 - 16. Attendees are invited to visit the CFdesign exhibit in the Ryman Exhibit Hall at Gaylord Opryland Convention Center.

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
Posted Mon June 07, 2004 @11:06AM
Print version Email story Tweet story
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.
