Events: CFD Modelling for the Built Environment
Posted Fri June 03, 2005 @05:08PM
Print version Email story Tweet story
News Fluent will hold a free seminar titled "CFD Modelling for the Built Environment" in London (June 30th) and Sheffield (July 7th).

There will be presentations from both Fluent and a guest industry speaker, covering case studies and the latest software features, as well as an informal question and answer session.

Fluent's CFD airflow modelling software is a powerful design tool. Its ability to simulate and display fluid flows for a variety of design scenarios has proved important in the design of some of the most high-profile building projects of recent years, including the 30 St. Mary Axe office building in London for Swiss Re and Birmingham's new Bullring retail development.

News NIKA GmbH, the leading provider of fluid flow and heat transfer simulation software for engineers and a new PTC Partner Advantage™ Gold Partner, has announced the new analysis package EFD.Pro.

EFD.Pro is a fully integrated fluid flow and heat transfer simulation product for Pro/ENGINEER. The seamless interface enables users to create designs with Pro/ENGINEER and then immediately analyze and optimize them – without translating any data and within the familiar Pro/ENGINEER environment. The tight integration between the products combined with the associative nature of Pro/ENGINEER makes it easy to use the analytical results to quickly iterate and optimize the design.

News A new result has been obtained using the density functional theory in hydrodynamics: three-phase three-component spinodal decomposition. A flow movie has been posted on the Density Functional website. The final frames of the movie demonstrate the steady solution with different wetting angles between various phases.

Announcements A new conferance for Simulation and Data Intensive Industries is on for 7-8 September in Goteborg, Sweden. The SIMDI05 conference will have a mix of consultants, ISV, hardware vendors, and contractors. During the show there will be exhibits and workshops.

The intention of the Organizing Committee for SIMDI05 is to gather all relevant actors in the Simulation Industry in the Nordic countries:

Engineers and Scientific users
At SIMDI 2005 you will find all the relevant technologies for your simulation work and their providers, also you will be able to show your competence and references.
Decision makers for HPC investments
Meet providers of leading edge technical solutions for your HPC environment.
Explain your company's needs regarding technical simulation and get in contact with Consultants and ISV and HPC providers.
Advertise your expertise and your research group activities for the Nordic industry.

For more information, see the SIMDI05 homepage.

New Version of OpenFlower Open Source CFD Software Released
Posted Tue May 31, 2005 @03:43PM
Print version Email story Tweet story
Open Source OpenFlower (FLOW solvER) is a C++ open source Linux CFD code mainly intended to solve the turbulent incompressible Navier-Stokes equations with a LES approach. It can deal with arbitrary complex 3D geometries with its finite volume approach and multi-element grids. One of its main objectives is to give to the CFD community a plug'n play CFD software, easy to use and install (no complicated compilations needed since it is written in standard C++ and also comes along with binary version of the code for Linux).

New Software: New Grid Generation Software Speeds Under Hood Simulation
Posted Tue May 31, 2005 @03:19PM
Print version Email story Tweet story
Grid Generation When starting a real life under hood flow simulation you have to deal with real life data. As you all know you can win or lose the game with CAD data handling and meshing.

For data reduction, file conversion and meshing, MAGNA STEYR uses the very new and, from MAGNA’s point of view, brilliant tool Spider. Spider is one of the first meshers which works fully automatically and is massively parallel.

MAGNA STEYR uses AVL-SWIFT for the flow simulation and we couple the radiator to the 1D cooling system tool KULI.

A full engine compartment flow simulation including external aerodynamics took five to seven weeks in 2003, today, thanks to Spider, we are able to perform these kind of simulations within one to two weeks.
