Application: Surfing Scientists Use Harpoon to Design Custom Surfboards
Posted Fri September 22, 2006 @12:39PM
Print version Email story Tweet story
Application Two surfers in Hoboken, NJ, have set out to make their mark on the sport of surfing, but their plan doesn’t include riding the perfect wave. Instead, they’ve taken to the lab with another strategy in mind.

Dror Kodman and Brian Sweeney are master’s degree candidates in the Product Architecture and Engineering (PAE) program, directed by Professor John Nastasi, at Stevens Institute of Technology. Working under the guidance of Dr. Len Imas, the two surfing scientists are jointly working on a master’s thesis that aims to use computational fluid dynamics (CFD) analysis to match a surfer and surfing conditions to an optimal surfboard design.

Application Canadian electronics manufacturer, Filtran is using CoolitPCB to design ruggedized power supplies for a major military telecom application in which ambient temperature pushes against the upper design limit of the components. Because little margin is available, accurate thermal analysis is crucial.

Filtran first heard of CoolitPCB from another manufacturer during its search for an effective, low-cost thermal analysis software.

Grid Generation Simmetrix Inc., the leading provider of component software for simulation-based design and CAD/CAE integration, today announced the release of Parallel MeshSim.

Parallel MeshSim provides a breakthrough technology for meshing of very large scale simulation problems based on a unique approach to meshing parallelization. Parallel MeshSim does not require the model representation to be reduced to a facet-based representation with a loss of data, but rather works directly with the GeomSim modules providing parallel mesh generation directly on geometry defined by the major geometry kernels (ACIS, Granite, Parasolid). Facet-based representations of geometry are also supported but not required.

Grid Generation Sharc Ltd announced today the release of new Matched Meshing software which has been included in the latest version of Harpoon.

Harpoon is extremely useful for meshing complex geometry quickly and with very little effort. One of its major strengths is that it does not require a watertight surface mesh so can cope with imperfect CAD geometry. If you have already invested the time to create a surface mesh now you can still enjoy all the benefits of a Harpoon volume mesh while retaining the initial surface mesh.

Post Processing CEI has released Reveal, a new 3D geometry player for viewing, analyzing and manipulating complex visualization scenarios created in EnSight or other applications based on Apex, CEI’s framework for cross-platform graphics development.

Reveal spreads the power of extreme visualization across the enterprise. Engineers and scientists can import multiple scenarios from EnSight into Reveal to share selected visualizations with colleagues, partners, customers and others. The actual Reveal application can be embedded into the file, requiring no downloading or licensing for those receiving the visualization.
