Print version Email story Tweet story
News Please join Fluent Inc. and its partners Concepts NREC and Engineous Software for the second in Fluent's Turbomachinery Webinar Series; Fan and Blower Design, on Thursday, October 21, 2004 at 2:00 pm ET.

This is an excellent opportunity for designers, analysts and managers to see how state-of-the-art software can be used to reduce costs and time-to-market by streamlining design, analysis and optimization of rotating fluid machinery.

The seminar will be of interest to all Turbomachinery designers who want to see how off-the-shelf software from Fluent, Concepts NREC, and Engineous can be used to build a complete design and analysis system, with a focus on fans and blowers.

The seminar will include one hour of presentation material along with a 15-minute question and answer period.

New Software: FLOVENT V5 Provides Usability, CAD Import and Gridding Improvements
Posted Fri October 15, 2004 @04:03PM

News Flomerics has introduced Version 5 of Flovent airflow design simulation software offering substantial improvements in the areas of usability, CAD import and numerical stability. The menus have been redesigned in the new release to more intuitively guide the user through the modeling process. Analysis accuracy has been improved with a grid-based dissection CAD import method that provides better handling of complex building geometries. Numerical stability has been increased by refining Flovent's unique object-based localized gridding.

Usability has been improved by redesigning the top-level menu system so that it is more consistent with design-based project creation. The node tree has been simplified and focuses on a hierarchical view of the project geometry. The file menu now lists the most recently opened files so they can be quickly re-opened. Menu picks that provide importing and exporting of projects and assemblies have been repositioned on the file menu for easier access. There have also been significant performance improvements in accessing the data associated with very large projects, very often encountered in building applications.

News For the second consecutive year, Blue Ridge Numerics has been selected to the Deloitte Technology Fast 50. Moving up eight spots from 2003, Deloitte now places Blue Ridge Numerics as the twenty-fifth fastest growing technology company in Virginia. The recognition is based on percentage of revenue growth over five years. The announcement was made October 7th during an awards ceremony at the ESPN Zone in Washington, D.C.

“To make the Deloitte Technology Fast 50, companies within the Virginia region must have had tremendous revenue growth from 1999-2003. Deloitte applauds Blue Ridge Numerics for having the long-term vision to develop technologies that change the way manufacturing companies deliver new products to market,” stated Gary H. Tabach, office managing partner of Deloitte’s McLean Virginia office.

News Fluent Inc., the world leader in computational fluid dynamics (CFD), recently won a prestigious 2004 R&D 100 Award for the novel integration of two best-in-class simulation software packages. The integrated simulation packages, used by many engineers in the process industries, are Aspen Plus®, process flowsheet modeling software from Aspen Technology, and FLUENT®, CFD modeling software from Fluent Inc.

The primary goal of the integration is to combine high-fidelity equipment modeling with plant-wide process modeling to enable rapid assessment of innovative new plants involving unique equipment (e.g. fuel cells, gasifiers, complex reactors). The interface enables a comprehensive assessment of how all equipment items work together in a process by allowing detailed fluid mechanics models to plug into the overall flowsheet.

Events: Trends and Best Practice at the CAD/CFD Interface

News Trends and Best Practice at the CAD/CFD Interface
24th November 2004, Coventry, UK

CAD is an integral component of modern CFD and is the normal starting point for CFD analysis. Traditionally, the generation of CAD had been viewed as a separate upstream task to CFD analysis. However, this boundary has been blurred by the advent of CFD pre-processors that condition CAD prior to meshing, bringing “slimmed-down” CAD into the CFD arena. A more recent trend is for mainstream CAD to offer “slimmed-down” CFD. Thus the CAD/CFD interface is evolving rapidly and users have an array of strategies from which to choose.

This seminar aims to review the evolving CAD/CFD interface in order to identify basic strategies that are available to users and also to disseminate best practice. The seminar will examine the major trends within the industry. The issue of CAD will be viewed in a broad sense and will encompass a full range of inputs that are in the CFD process.
