Liquid Film of Water on an Inclined Surface
Posted Wed August 25, 2004 @03:13PM

Help Desk dgubler writes "Dear all

I am asked to compute water flowing over an inclined surface (such as a waterfilm on a roof or a street). The special thing is that the liquid film is very thin (some mm to maybe some cm's), whereas the inclined surface is several 100 m^2!

Does anybody know about a simple 2D-code which is capable to deal with such a problem?

We tried with CFX multiphase but without any success yet.

I would be very greatful for any advice on this subject!

Application: Wavebreaking CFD Technology for the Olympics

Application To become an Olympic Rowing champion you need two qualities in fair measure: grace and guts. More than any other sport, rowing combines sheer explosive power with fine technique. With winning margins measured in just tenths of a second, Gold medals are traditionally won by working harder and suffering more than your opponents. At this year’s Olympics in Athens, however, those rules are about to change; blood, sweat and tears alone might not be good enough. For the first time the best teams will have a new weapon in their armory. In Athens, Computational Fluid Dynamics could be the difference between Gold and Bronze.

CFD is already widely used as an engineering tool within the maritime industry. Long used for optimizing hull designs under steady cruising conditions, it is also becoming increasingly important for predicting the complex three-dimensional phenomena applicable to maneuvering conditions. Used effectively it reduces the reliance on expensive towing tank tests and allows the investigation of a wider variety of more radical designs than would otherwise be possible.

New Software: FORTRAN Flow Chart Tool Available
Posted Sun August 22, 2004 @08:14AM
Print version Email story Tweet story
News OmegaChart ver. 1.1 is a FORTRAN FlowChart generator. It converts a FORTRAN source code to its FlowChart equivalence. The generated flowchart is ported into an Excel file.

With OmegaChart 1.1, you can untangle the programming logic in a spaghetti code and therefore generate visual documentation of the execution path.

While other analysis tools only provides you "assembly level" info such as calling trees, Omega Chart provide detailed "module level" logic such as if-elseif-endif constructs, loops and nested loops.

With omega chart, you can easily minimize the use of GOTO's and therefore "modernize" your code.
