Print version Email story Tweet story
News Blue Ridge Numerics is pleased to announce CFdesign® v8.0 upfront CFD software is certified as an integrated simulation tool for Autodesk Inventor® 11.

The integrated appications work together to transform a standard workstation PC into an interactive, 3D flow bench, thermal test rig, and wind tunnel. Native Inventor 11 assemblies serve as zero-cost prototypes. Most importantly critcal product performance information not available from physical testing is revealed to the engineer.

Print version Email story Tweet story
News CD-adapco, the leading provider of computational fluid dynamics technology to the automotive industry, will be unveiling STAR-CCM+ V2 at this year's SAE World Congress (April 3-6 in Detroit).

Aerodynamic simulation is now a routine part of automotive design. Once regarded as a high-end application, CFD simulation is now used at every stage of a vehicle design from earliest concept to post-production modification. As the value of CFD in the automotive industry has increased, its users have become more demanding, requiring (among other things) automatic geometry repair, fine mesh control, repeatability of calculation and rapid turn-around times.

News ANSYS, Inc., a global innovator of simulation software and technologies designed to optimize product development processes, today announced that following informal discussions with staff at the Federal Trade Commission ("FTC"), ANSYS has elected to refile its pre-merger notification and report form under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act with respect to its acquisition of Fluent Inc.

ANSYS has withdrawn its original filing and has refiled its Notification and Report Form with the FTC and the Antitrust Division of the Department of Justice on March 27, 2006. As a result, the FTC staff will have more time to review the information submitted by ANSYS and Fluent before the staff must determine what additional information, if any, it will request.

Help Needed With Fluent VOF Simulation
Posted Tue March 28, 2006 @09:15AM
Print version Email story Tweet story
Help Desk Hi, I am a undergraduate student doing my honours project on fluent.

I am looking at the effects of the collapse of a wave on a beach and effects on the beach as this wave flow rushes up and down the beach.

I am using the 2D Volume of Fluid simulation in fluent 6 and I have adapted a region in my mesh and patched it with water to represent the wave collapsing onto the beach, however when I run the simulation I have to use a very small time step in order for results to converge.

Application: CFD Aids Truck Design
Posted Mon March 27, 2006 @10:21AM
Print version Email story Tweet story
Application At the recent Mid-America Trucking Show, truck manufacturers Kenworth and International both unveiled new designs developed through the use of CFD. International claims a nine percent improvement in fuel economy as a result of its new aerodynamic shape.
The aerodynamic design dramatically reduces wind resistance, turning in profit-boosting fuel-efficiency performance. Key test applications used to achieve the design were Computational Fluid Dynamics, a computerized application used to optimize design in the early stages of the process, and 1/8 scale wind tunnel testing for basic shape development.
