Application by Bob Cramblitt

As the wins and top-10 finishes over the last two years in the Nextel Cup and Busch Series accumulated, theories abounded on what triggered the amazing comeback of the Richard Childress Racing team.

Amid all the public speculation, there was something going on behind the scenes that might be one of the biggest keys to RCR’s new-found prosperity: The team was benefiting from greater use of technologies such as digital shape sampling and processing (DSSP) and computational fluid dynamics (CFD) by engineers who know how to translate research results into on-track performance.

News A recent Flomerics survey investigating the opinions of mechanical design engineers on Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) analysis revealed that the vast majority (75%) of mechanical designers have heard of CFD. The same survey revealed that 80% of mechanical design engineers are not currently using CFD.

The most common reason cited in the survey as to why relatively few mechanical design engineers are using CFD was that “most mechanical design engineers don’t have the necessary expertise and knowledge to use a CFD code.”

Announcements STAR Konferenz Deutschland 2007 will be held 6-7 November 2007 at the Hilton Hotel, Nuremberg.

Fluid Dynamics and Structural Mechanics have, until now, been separate disciplines, divided by a disparate set of simulation tools and methodologies. Join the CAE Revolution at our STAR Konferenz Deutschland 2007, when CD-adapco will be demolishing the simulation barrier between flow and stress and introducing the first finite-volume CFD code capable of simulating industrial flow, thermal and stress problems in a single solver.
