News Fluent Inc., the world leader in computational fluid dynamics (CFD) software and services, announces that it has teamed with KBC Advanced Technologies Inc. to provide high end engineering solutions to oil refineries and petrochemical manufacturers. Joint service offerings will focus on improving unit operating performance, reducing operating costs, increasing system reliability, safety enhancement, and pollution reduction.

“We’re excited about this partnership,” said Dave Schowalter, Lead Engineer for Energy at Fluent. “By teaming KBC’s 25 years of experience optimizing unit and refining processes with Fluent’s 25 years of advanced flow simulation, we’re able to help refineries increase processing efficiency by visualizing what is going wrong with their units, then proposing, proving, and providing real engineering solutions.”

Application: Medicine's Fluid Dynamics
Posted Fri March 03, 2006 @10:29AM

Application In Medicine's Fluid Dynamics Desktop Engineering chronicles the rise of CFD in the biomedical field. CFD has found application in human physiology research into circulatory and respiratory systems, pharmaceutical delivery, and in design of medical equipment.
Chris Reid, vice president and general manager of the fluids business unit for ANSYS, reports growing use of CFX for heart, circulatory, and respiratory system product development—such items as stents, blood pumps, and inhalers. "Blood flow itself is a multiphase flow problem," Reid says. "Modeling this has become easier with today’s software. We can model multiphase, nonlinear behavior in arterial walls with software for fluid-structural interaction (FSI). An important application area for FSI is medicine delivery in the respiratory tract. Designs for asthmatics require modeling the whole respiratory system."

Application: Engineering for the Gold
Posted Thu March 02, 2006 @08:02AM
Print version Email story Tweet story
Application Desktop Engineering is running an article on Engineering for the Gold medal in bobsled at the 2006 Winter Olympic Games. The US team, traditionally underfunded compared to European teams, is using reverse engineering and CFD analysis for an edge on the track.
"In this age of computer-aided design," says design specialist Bob Cuneo, "[hand forming] was the wrong way to go about it." He knew he needed to create a 3D computer model for a CFD study, but no native CAD data existed for any sleds. Cuneo needed to capture the sleds and athletes in 3D, create a digital model, and find the right CFD solution.

News Flows of gases and liquids have always had an aesthetic appeal to both the scientific community and to the general public at large; be it a Leonardo da Vinci water sketch, a turbulent Van Gogh sky in Southern France, or a Hiroshige Ando lithograph of a large wave about to engulf an open boat.

The advent of Computational Fluid Dynamics over the last 20 years has amplified this perception of fluid flow phenomena in the mind of the viewer with a range of very colorful visual representations of flows in everyday objects and situations.
