Print version Email story Tweet story
News If you are going to be in the greater Detroit/Ann Arbor area, plan on attending one of Fluent's Automotive Lunch 'n Learn seminars. The first in the series of four Lunch 'n Learns begins Friday, March 18.

Acoustics Modeling with FLUENT, March 18
Aeroacoustics is a topic of increasing interest in many industries. The need to reduce noise is felt in an immense number of automotive applications, ranging from wind noise, HVAC duct noise to fans and blowers. With the recent advent of advanced CFD models and algorithms it has become possible to numerically simulate aeroacoustics for many of these applications.

Lunch ‘n Learn Seminar for FloWizard, April 22
The FloWizard Lunch 'n Learn seminar is an excellent opportunity to learn about Fluent's first CFD software tool built exclusively for design engineers and how it can be a critical component in product design and optimization.

Print version Email story Tweet story
News Fluent Inc., world leader in computational fluid dynamics (CFD) software and services, has announced its contribution to the new undergraduate engineering textbook by Yunus Çengel and John Cimbala; Fluid Mechanics: Fundamentals and Applications, published by McGraw-Hill Higher Education. This book is aimed at a college level syllabus for engineering students.

Professor Çengel, professor emeritus at the University of Nevada, has written three very successful textbooks in the area of thermal sciences, including the top-selling textbook on Thermodynamics. Professor Cimbala is an award-winning expert in Air Quality and Environmental Engineering at Penn State University.

Computer simulation played a key role in the design of a new spunbond attenuator that shows potential to reduce the energy required at a given production volume, providing a substantial reduction in operating costs. Spunbond refers to direct fabric manufacturing from polymer in one continuous process. The purpose of the attenuator in this process is to stretch and orient the continuous fibers and lay them down on a moving collection screen.

One of the primary goals in attenuator design is to achieve the highest fiber velocity for a given compressed air power level. In many situations, this makes it possible to use lower cost equipment. In every situation, however, it reduces energy costs and noise levels.

Worldwide Survey on CFD Information Resources
Posted Thu February 24, 2005 @09:38AM
Print version Email story Tweet story
Announcements In-line with the aims and objectives of NAFEMS as a whole, the NAFEMS CFD working group aims to raise awareness of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) applications and techniques, promote standards for CFD, stimulate the adoption of best practices and deliver education and training. These activities are currently carried out through various mechanisms including the publication of guidance booklets, workbooks of examples, a journal of case studies and organising seminars.

The purpose of this survey is to identify which topics are currently insufficiently covered but are of interest to those involved, either directly or indirectly, in CFD analysis activities. Also to identify the most useful format through which the material should be made available.
