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: CFD Models Added to Diagnostician's Medical Bag
Posted Wed May 03, 2006 @04:07PM
Print version Email story Tweet story
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.
