News Join Fluent for a very special seminar, a Taste of FLUENT, being held from 9:30am - 6:00pm, September 27, in the Baltimore, MD area at Training Etc, Inc., 7150 Riverwood Dr., Suite J, Columbia, MD.

"Taste" and see how FLUENT can revolutionize the way you look at fluid flow. Come visit us on September 27 for a one-day hands-on FLUENT experience. You'll get an overview of how Fluent's customers are using FLUENT, a chance to meet with our engineers to discuss your applications and a chance to try it. If you like what you see, stay on for full training on FLUENT. At the end you'll be fully qualified to run FLUENT on your own applications.

The Taste of Fluent seminar is a Free event for managers and engineers who would like to learn more about Fluent and computational fluid dynamics.

Application: Formula 1— Winning is Everything
Posted Fri September 17, 2004 @03:06PM
Print version Email story Tweet story
Application Formula racing is defined as “single-seat automobile racing in which the designs of the cars are strictly regulated”. Vehicles used in Formula One (F1) racing are considered the highest form of single-seat racing cars due to the sophistication of construction and ultimate speed. Their design, in which the airflow over and under the car (aided by sophisticated “wings” and the closeness of the car to its racing surface) creates a downward force, which holds them close to the ground—despite extremely high speeds.

F1 teams want to win—not only for the high purses received at the finish line, but because F1 cars are considered to be the height of single-seat racing car construction. So, if you win, you’re considered to be the best in what many consider to be the most glamorous automobile racing events in the world.

But, if you don’t get the aerodynamic package of your F1 right, you won’t have a hope of getting near the front of the grid—much less win the race! F1 teams spend up to $50 million on the latest thing in wind tunnels in order to be at the head of the pack.

That’s why Advantage CFD, owned by the B.A.R. F1 team, came to the industry leader in CFD design manipulation—the Optimal Solutions Software team—in their efforts to more quickly and accurately aerodynamically improve the B.A.R. Formula 1 race cars.

Mesh Density for Turbulent Flows

Help Desk Krishna writes "Hello all,

I am working on modeling of a Cartesian geometry (pipes) and I have a question about setting up the mesh for turbulent flows. After estimating the first node point away from the wall, how does one determine the number of cells in axial and radial direction as it greatly affects the wall y+. Any help on this regard will be deeply appreciated.

Thanks for your time"

Print version Email story Tweet story
News Fluent Inc., the worldwide leader in computational fluid dynamics (CFD) software and services, presents a Naval/Ocean Engineering Webinar on Thursday, September 23, 2004, at 2 p.m.

In this free webinar you will find out how flow modeling can provide full-scale analysis results or complement other fluid dynamics analysis methods and tools to meet the demanding needs of marine industry applications such as:

  • ship hull hydrodynamics
  • marine propellers
  • fully non-linear free-surface waves
  • stern wakes
  • flows in and around equipment on ships and ocean structures, and more.

The benefits of flow modeling technology will be described, along with case study examples and live demonstrations of the tools at work.
