Print version Email story Tweet story
ANSYS FLUENT The upcoming European Automotive CFD Conference (EACC) in Frankfurt, Germany, will have the first European preview of the fully embedded “FLUENT for CATIA V5” product from Fluent Inc. and Dassault Systèmes. The product’s uniquely innovative design allows users the possibility of integrated analysis for the first time within the automotive Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) environment.

Commenting on his Keynote EACC presentation and product demonstration, Severin Lafranchi, Dassault Systemes’ R&D Director for CATIA Simulation, said, "We want to make it easier for our customers to predict product performance. Fluent has created a fully PLM-integrated CFD solution that reveals the effects of fluid dynamics during product design. The result will be better performing, more cost effective products in less time."

Application: CFD Helps Cure Separation Anxiety
Posted Tue June 14, 2005 @10:38AM

Application Machine Design has posted an article describing Sverdrup's use of CFD to predict aircraft store separation -- something once designed solely through expensive and dangerous flight testing.

New weapons systems often took years to certify because tests were time consuming, expensive and occasionally led to the loss of aircraft when events didn't go as expected. Dynamically unstable objects such as fuel tanks and some modern, agile munitions that happen to experience a control failure are especially challenging.

The result: CFD did a good job of modeling separation at a speed of Mach 1.2 at an altitude of 38,000 ft.
