News NASA managers plan to meet next week to discuss whether to ship a shuttle external fuel tank to Florida in early February without so-called PAL ramp wind delectors in hopes wind tunnel tests and computer modeling will prove the ramps aren't needed to shield external pressurization lines and a cable tray from aerodynamic buffeting.

"The thing that I'm keenly interested in is the actual test data," LeRoy Cain, manager of launch processing at the Kennedy Space Center, said. "The CFD, it will either confirm or not confirm whatever the test data says is right. But that flow field is non intuitive. It's extremely complex."

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.
