Application: Simulation of Water Circulation Improves Safety of Swimming Pools
Posted Fri May 05, 2006 @08:52AM
Print version Email story Tweet story
Application Since the 1980ís there have been at least 147 incidents documented of suction entrapment in swimming pools, including 36 deaths. Suction entrapment occurs when a swimmer, usually a small child, is trapped by the suction forces created by the water rushing out of the drain at the bottom of the pool. In some cases swimmers have been trapped underwater until they drowned and in others they have suffered serious injuries to various parts of their bodies.

The swimming pool industry has made serious progress in improving the safety of drains and this has reduced but not eliminated some of the injuries and deaths.

Announcements Rotating Flow inside COSMOSFloWorks
May 30, 2006
1:30 PM (EDT), 10:30 AM (PDT)

This online seminar is designed for engineers who design equipment with rotating components, and who need to analyze and understand the behavior of those components in order to improve product performance.

COSMOSFloWorks is perfect for the engineer who needs flow analysis, but is not an expert in the field of fluid simulation. Using COSMOSFloWorks in the product development cycle can help you build a better product in less time.

Application R & D Magazine has a feature story on how CFD Modeling is Being Used for Medical Research. Examples of biomedical simulation cited in the article include blood clotting research, artery grafts, lung and trachea flow, drug delivery, and toxicology studies.
...biomedical engineering is being aided with the ability to reliably create 3-D models of large vessels that are patient specific. Adding to this acceptance by medical doctors, surgeons, and hospitals is that often the flow-related medical products that are currently involved in many proceduresóheart valves, drug dispensing stents, inhalers, and cathetersóhave had extensive CFD procedures successfully performed on them during the design process.

ANSYS FLUENT Fluent Inc., the worldwide leader in computational fluid dynamics (CFD) software and services, announces today a unique partnership with a leading French automotive manufacturer, PSA Peugeot CitroŽn, culminating in the porting of its software onto a large high-performance computing cluster.

Engineers at PSA Peugeot CitroŽn have been using Fluent's software for over a decade. This development in the relationship was initiated by the need to drive Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) engineering analysis tools like FLUENT earlier into the design cycle in order to cut vehicle development timescales.

News In his keynote speech at the recent Gridgen User Group Meeting, Dr. Bill Clark, Director of the CD-adapco Engineering Software Business Unit, stated that some of CD-adapco's customers are running 400 million cell models currently and that he expects them to run one billion cell models by next year.

Dr. Clark attributed the dramatic increase in model size to the increasing use of HPC clusters for CFD simulation. However, he noted that there are some barriers to the advancement of flow simulation which must be overcome if CFD is to reach it's full potential.

Grid Generation Pointwise announces the availability of their CFD meshing software, Gridgen Version 15.09, on Microsoft Windows and Linux workstations powered by the AMD Opteron processor.

"Gridgen has supported the Windows and Linux operating systems for eight and five years, respectively," said John Steinbrenner, Vice President of Research and Development. "During that time, the AMD Opteron processor has become very popular in the computational fluid dynamics market. With the help of our new partners at AMD we are now able to certify Gridgenís performance on the Opteron processor both now and in the future."
