News Celebrate the 2004 Summer Olympic Games and CFD’s advances in aiding the world of elite sport in performance enhancement and competitive advantage with Fluent Inc. Fluent Inc. has created a unique computer wallpaper with a split CFD/underwater image depicting the young American swimming prodigy, Michael Phelps.

Michael Phelps is aiming to emulate the unsurpassed feat of the 1972 US Olympian, Mark Spitz by bringing the US home at least 7 Gold medals in the Athens Swimming Pool. While doing this, Phelps will be wearing a Speedo Fastskin FSII swimsuit, designed in no small part by the use of the FLUENT CFD code. The FLUENT CFD code has been utilized extensively to carry out a huge range of hydrodynamic flow simulations around specific elite athletes. The split CFD/underwater image of Phelps used in the Wallpaper perfectly shows how contours of frictional drag on Phelps' body while he is in the glide position can be simulated to a lifelike resolution today. This is an exciting milestone in the development of applying CFD to real world competitive scenarios.

News ANSYS, Inc., a global innovator of simulation software and technologies designed to optimize product development processes, today announced that the upcoming ANSYS 9.0 release will be ported to the AMD Opteron(TM) processor running the SuSE version of the Linux operating system.

The AMD Opteron processor allows companies to preserve their investments in 32-bit applications, while providing a transition path to 64-bit computing for those projects demanding high-performance capabilities.

"With design cycles shortening, users want the highest-performing processors to keep up with their increasingly intense software needs," said Ben Williams, vice president of AMD's Enterprise and Server/Workstation Business Segment. "By porting ANSYS software to the AMD64 platform, ANSYS users will have the power and speed to quickly create their simulation runs and be unhindered by processor limitations."

News The Renault F1 Team has signed an agreement to extend and expand its relationship with Fluent Europe Ltd as an Official Associate Supplier.

The relationship between the two companies began back in 1993 under the Benetton F1 team, and continued after the Renault take over in 2000. FLUENT CFD software has played a key role in the aerodynamic design and development of the R24, one of the most competitive cars in the 2004 F1 World Championship.

FLUENT will work alongside the Renault F1 Team on two fronts, developing the R24 and its successors but also profiting from the relationship by using this cutting-edge environment to drive development of the FLUENT CFD software. The agreement will also see the Renault F1 Team increase the number of licences it holds for FLUENT CFD, thus enhancing the team’s CFD capacity.

AMD has announced that Sauber Petronas will implement a server cluster based on the AMD Opteron processor with Direct Connect Architecture. The cluster is designed to deliver increased performance for the Swiss Formula One team as part of their aerodynamics research and development efforts. Sauber selected AMD Opteron processor-based solutions to help achieve greater progress particularly in the field of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD), a critical factor complementing Sauber’s aerodynamics and wind tunnel testing.

“The entire field of aerodynamics and CFD is becoming increasingly important in Formula One, that’s why it’s crucial to have the right technology partners,” said Peter Sauber, team principal for Sauber Petronas.

When Sauber Petronas decided to upgrade their computing capabilities in order to push the limits of their computer-aided research and performance, they carefully evaluated the 32-bit and 64-bit solutions available. Sauber’s technology team determined that only the AMD Opteron processor met their technical requirements, by delivering the best overall 32-bit performance combined with the power of 64-bit computing.
