Application By Nathalie Gobeau, Stefan Ledin, Chris Lea, Richard Bettis and John Allen
Health and Safety Laboratory
Buxton, Derbyshire, United Kingdom

A new study from the Health and Safety Laboratory (HSL) provides guidelines, recommendations and best practices for the practical application of computational fluid dynamics to the modeling of smoke movement in enclosed spaces. HSL modeled three realistic fire safety engineering cases: a subway station, an accommodation module on an offshore platform, and a high-rise building under construction. Aspects of the modeling process — including the computational grid, the discretization scheme and the turbulence model — were varied for each scenario, and the resulting predictions of smoke transport were compared.

News Join Fluent for a free webinar - How Customers are Succeeding with a Customized Version of FloWizard - to be held Tuesday, June 13, 2006 at 2 p.m.

In this one-hour session we will present several customer examples of process automation via the customization of the FloWizard interface and GAMBIT meshing. We will describe the benefits of how the customization of the interface, meshing, solution processes and postprocessing can impact an overall development process. We will also conduct a general overview of the methods utilized in the example customizations.

Application The fast approaching 2006 Soccer World Cup in Germany next month heralds the arrival of another festival of the beautiful game. This year’s competition promises to showcase swerving kicks which defy explanation and which often decide the outcome of the match.

Some of the world’s greatest goalkeepers have been beaten by unusual swerving balls which move to the left and the right before hitting the back of the net, even though they have little or no spin applied to them. The new research has found that the shape and surface of the ball, as well as its initial orientation, is critical in terms of its trajectory through the air.
