Announcements Parallel Computing for Large-scale CFD
October 24 - 27, 2006 – Barcelona, Spain

This course illustrates the state-of-the-art in parallel computing and links theory to application for large-scale CFD through demonstrations and training. This course should be of value to all involved in parallel computing and is structured to be of equal interest to CFD programmers and code developers in general.

Hardware A huge part of any modern Formula One team's drive for more speed is the study and application of the aerodynamic behaviour of the vehicle which translates into the discipline of computational fluid dynamics (CFD).

The types of problems that Ferrari is trying to solve aren't confined to motor racing of course. Many enterprises have similar issues. Examples range from processor vendors -- who need CFD to find better ways to cool their chips -- to petro-chemical companies, who want to streamline the flows of raw materials, to academic institutions.

In How Ferrari Keeps Its Data Cool, Techworld interviewed Ferrari data centre manager Massimo Martelli about the challenges of cooling the equipment in their large CFD compute cluster.

News ALGOR, Inc. announced that its latest software release, ALGOR V19.2, features all-new enhancements for computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and Mechanical Event Simulation (MES). New features include the capability to model flow obstacles as distributed resistance parts, which can greatly simplify 3-D modeling; new surface-to-surface contact options (slide/no bounce contact and tied contact) for more realistic simulation and faster solving of MES applications such as a press-fit process; faster, industry-standard sparse solvers for linear dynamic analysis, static stress analysis and MES; and distributed memory processing for 32- and 64-bit Linux (Red Hat) for static stress analysis and MES. These and many more new V19.2 features provide ALGOR users with increased power, flexibility and ease-of-use for simulating engineering analyses of their product designs.

Announcements The NAFEMS World Congress will bring together world leading industrial practitioners, consultancies, academic researchers and software developers with a common interest in engineering analysis.

Simulation is now established in many engineering companies as part of their product development process. Whilst the conference will cover many aspects of the use of simulation, a particular focus will be how the appropriate deployment of simulation can lead to a further competitive advantage through helping to stimulate innovation.

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.
