Interview with Flomerics EFD Product Manager

News MCAD Online recently interviewed Ivo Weinhold, EFD Product Manager, Flomerics, about embedding flow simulation in the mechanical design process and the company’s Engineering Fluid Dynamics (EFD) approach to CFD.
“Engineering Fluid Dynamics” (EFD) defines a new approach to fluid flow simulation that demands cost-effective, process-oriented CFD software that is fully embedded within the mainstream design environment. The EFD approach demands that simulation results are available as and when changes occur in the design cycle - only then can simulation play a central role in design decision-making and optimisation.

Quality & Reliability of CFD Simulations III: Quantifying Uncertainty
Posted Tue February 13, 2007 @01:07PM
Print version Email story Tweet story
Announcements CFD is increasingly used in engineering design, safety analysis and environmental assessments. A key question which arises is the accuracy of CFD simulation, especially when test or field data is sparse or unavailable.

This seminar brings together current and potential users of CFD to examine the quantification of uncertainty for industrial and environmental applications.

News CD-adapco announces the release of STAR-CAD Gateways V4.10, the latest version of the industry leading CAD and PLM-embedded front-ends for STAR-CD V4 and STAR-CCM+ V2.04.

The STAR-CAD Gateways are add-ons to the full-spectrum Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) products STAR-CD and STAR-CCM+, specifically created to enable engineers and analysts to undertake calculations directly within their CAD environment. Because the CFD model is fully associative with the CAD geometry, any design changes made in response to simulation results or otherwise, are automatically reflected in the CFD model, and subsequently the solution.

Why don’t we understand turbulence?

Help Desk A reader wrote in about an interesting Wired article: Why don’t we understand turbulence?.
The trouble is complexity. When a stream of water or air goes turbulent, groups of molecules form vortices of widely varying sizes that interact in seemingly random ways. To determine the outcome, we’d have to measure the initial conditions to an impractical degree of precision. And in any case, tracking a zillion particles is beyond the reach of any conceivable computer.

Wonder if anyone might have something to add or comment? A wiki area is available to capture the debate.
