Print version Email story Tweet story
News Fluent Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of ANSYS, Inc., a global innovator of simulation software and technologies designed to optimize product development processes, today announced new releases of TGrid 4.0, GAMBIT 2.3 and 3Matic-for-Fluent 1.0, all major upgrades to Fluent’s preprocessing capabilities. These three products provide several new functionality advantages that enable Fluent users to proceed from CAD geometries to Fluent CFD solvers in unprecedented timescales.

TGrid 4.0 has been substantially improved, with a powerful Surface Wrapper added to its existing surface and volume meshing capabilities. Users can now wrap up multiple dirty geometry files from several sources into single, connected, high-quality surface mesh in record times. A number of automated functions are available to optimize the process, depending on the problem at hand.

News Fluent is offering an advanced TGrid 4.0 course for general TGrid users who are interested in meshing complicated geometry. The program will have an automotive focus, however, it is open to all TGrid clients. Attendees must have completed TGrid introductory training and it is recommended that they have at least one year of experience using the software.

Attendees can expect to learn the TGrid 4.0 wrapper as well as general tips and tricks through lectures and hands-on tutorials.

This course will be offered on August 7, 2006 and September 13, 2006.

News Flomerics and Gradient Design Automation are partnering to allow chip designers to analyze and avoid temperature-induced electrical issues at the chip level while taking into account the effects of the package and the ambient conditions.

The integrated software solution will be based on product platforms from both companies. Gradient's full-chip thermal analysis tool FireBolt, allows IC designers to access temperature anywhere within a chip and to evaluate how to improve the design with respect to timing, leakages, and reliability, while Flomerics' package-level thermal analysis Flopack tool automates model creation through wizard-driven geometry macros.

News NIKA GmbH, the leading provider of fluid flow and heat transfer simulation software for engineers, today announced the release of EFD.Flexx. EFD.Flexx offers an innovative licensing model for the NIKA Engineering Fluid Dynamics (EFD) product family. The EFD product family consists of EFD.Lab, EFD.V5 for CATIA V5 and EFD.Pro for Pro/ENGINEER. With the addition of EFD.Flexx licensing mechanism, companies employing multi-CAD strategies and or distributed development structures will be able to exchange data internally and with clients or suppliers in various formats.

“The backbone of analysis is data accessibility” said Roland Feldhinkel, NIKA managing director. “With EFD.Flexx, engineers can share resources and conduct fully integrated fluid flow and heat transfer analyses within CATIA V5 and Pro/ENGINEER. Engineers can further supplement their design power and data accessibility by using the company’s sophisticated 3D solid modeler with native direct interfaces to most major CAD packages. With EFD.Flexx users can freely choose the best and most economic way to handle CAD data for their fluid flow simulations and benefit from extensive time and cost savings.”
