News TranscenData Europe has been selected to join Airbus UK, BAE SYSTEMS, Frazer-Nash Consultancy, Aircraft Research Association, QinetiQ and the Universities of Southampton and Swansea as part of the CAST 2 project. The group has been awarded a substantial research grant by the DTI as part of its environmentally friendly transport initiative. The grant will go towards the development of next-generation aerodynamic modelling tools for designing more fuel-efficient and quieter aircraft, vehicles and trains.

The CAST 2 project will see the development of more advanced engineering tools such as Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) and Computational Aero Acoustics (CAA). These types of tools hold the key to more environmentally sound transport by helping to maximise the aerodynamic properties of new vehicle designs.

Events: Reacting Flow with FLUENT/KINetics Training Course
Posted Mon July 18, 2005 @08:24AM
Print version Email story Tweet story
Announcements Join us for a one-day training course on Reacting Flow Modeling designed for existing users of FLUENT. The focus of the course is using FLUENT in conjunction with Reaction Design's KINetics module, which offers a new way to model detailed gas-phase and surface chemistry within FLUENT 6.2.

The training course will be held on August 12, 2005, 9:00 am-5:30 pm. The class is offered as a third day of training following Reaction Design's introductory two day training on using CHEMKIN to solve reacting flow problems involving detailed kinetic mechanisms. Experienced CHEMKIN users may elect to sign up for only the FLUENT/KINetics portion of the course if they are already familiar with the material covered in the first two days of the course.
