BAR Honda CEO on CFD Technology

News Motorsport.com has an interview with BAR chief executive Nick Fry discussing the recently completed season and looking ahead to next year. When questioned about a possible new F1 regulation requiring a Centreline Downwash Generating (CDG) rear wing, Mr. Fry had this to say:
On the new CDG wing, I think a lot more work needs to be done to ensure it is the right answer. We're one of the biggest proponents of CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) technology but it only gives you a good guide for what you should be doing, it doesn't have the resolution to give you all the answers. I feel more work, more modelling and more wind tunnel tests need to be done to make sure that this new rear wing proposal really is the way to go.

News Desktop Engineering has posted an article titled Putting the Spin in CFD which covers CFD as a tool for studying rotating components.
CFD (computational fluid dynamics) helps engineers study many of the issues involved in rotating component behavior. It provides a way to save a great deal of time and money in obtaining the necessary information, and assists engineers in designing better quality rotating equipment.

ANSYS FLUENT Fluent and Abaqus invite you to attend a free morning seminar on Wednesday 23 November 2005 in Sheffield, UK.

The seminar offers the opportunity to learn about and discuss the very latest techniques of Fluid Structure Interaction.

It will introduce the main concepts of Fluid-Structure simulation and outline the main components of the FLUENT-ABAQUS solution. The benefits that this method delivers to the overall Product Development Process will also be highlighted. In addition to a live demonstration, several case studies from the Automotive, Aerospace and Medical Industries will also be presented.

For further information or to register for the seminar email events@fluent.co.uk.

CFD Helps Improve Ore Separation by Flotation
Posted Tue October 25, 2005 @02:59PM
Print version Email story Tweet story
News Flotation, a process where valuable minerals are separated from low-grade ore by entraining the minerals in the froth, is a very important part of modern mining. After 100 years of modern flotation, more money can be made by achieving a cleaner separation of minerals.

Now CFD techniques are being employed to study the physics of flotation and how the process can be improved.

“In flotation cells, the use of computational fluid dynamic model-ling has now come of age, and it is possible to gain an insight into the distribution of energy in various areas of a flotation tank,”

Much of this research is being carried out under the auspices of AMIRA’s P780A project.

News Dr. Patrick Jenny, an engineer at the Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich, has won this year's Latsis prize for his work on fluid dynamics.

The 39-year-old professor at the Institute of Fluid Dynamics was honoured for his "efficient and innovative solutions" in the computer-assisted simulation of complex fluid systems in nature and technology.

Specifically, Dr. Jenny has been researching probability density function (PDF) modeling of turbulent reactive flow, multi-phase flow in porous media and multi-scale modeling.
