Print version Email story Tweet story
Grid Generation Pointwise announces the public release of UGC API V2, software and documentation for an application programming interface (API) for unstructured meshing software. Development of API V2 was recently completed for the U.S. Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) by a Pointwise-led team including Boeing, Lockheed Martin, and Basis Software.

The purpose of the API is relatively simple. By specifying how meshing technologies are to be implemented in software, meshing algorithms may easily be integrated into existing meshing applications if both conform to the API specification.

Application With the help of Coolit CFD software, ADVA AG Optical Networking is detecting potential thermal problems early in the development phase while engineers are still able to change cabinet and board designs. As a result, the company has shortened its development cycles and eliminated time-consuming and costly redesigns.

ADVA, the leading metro optical-networking provider in Europe, develops a series of fiber optic boards, opto-electronic boards and accompanying cabinets and shelves. The company had tested other thermal packages, but found them cumbersome. Using Coolit, the company can easily construct and run models and display the three-dimensional colored simulations that predict temperatures and airflows inside its cabinets.

News Advanced Design Technology has released TURBOcfd a full CFD solver developed for incompressible turbomachinery flows such as through pumps and fans. TURBOcfd has been specifically developed in order to streamline the application of CFD in the blade design process.

In many general purpose CFD codes the mesh generation and problem set up can be quite time consuming which can affect the productivity of designers and increase design and development time. In order to overcome some of these problems, ADT has developed TURBOcfd to streamline the application of CFD in the turbomachinery blade design process.
