New Software: Open Source Code Coupler O-PALM Now Available
Posted Fri February 18, 2011 @09:11AM
Print version Email story Tweet story
Open Source In order to efficiently represent complex systems, numerical modelling has to rely on many physical models at a time. The continuity of the solution is granted only if these models can constantly exchange information.

A coupler is a software tool allowing the concurrent execution and the intercommunication of programs not having been especially designed for information exchange.

After many years of development and regular use, the PALM coupler has become Open Source with the name O-PALM.

Application: CFD Aids Design of High Performance Turbocharger Compressors
Posted Wed February 16, 2011 @09:23AM
Print version Email story Tweet story
Application Cummins Turbo Technologies, a leading designer and manufacturer of turbochargers for diesel and gas-derivative engines above 2.3 litres, recently applied TURBOdesign1 - 3D inverse design code - for the development of the next-generation of high performance centrifugal compressors for turbocharger applications.

A turbocharged diesel engine’s fuel consumption is directly influenced by the turbocharger efficiency through the engine’s pumping cycle work. The more efficient the turbomachinery, the lower the work done by the engine during the pumping cycle, resulting in better engine Brake Specific Fuel Consumption (BSFC).

Events: Unsteady Analysis and the New Requirements for CFD Post-processing
Posted Tue February 15, 2011 @10:11AM
Print version Email story Tweet story
Announcements Today's low-cost computational resources have fundamentally changed the way we approach modern technical challenges. In the world of CFD, one of the most dramatic changes has been the increasing use of unsteady (transient) simulations, which allows engineers and scientists to study moving machinery and turbulence flows more effectively.

Join Tecplot on Tuesday, February 15, at 10 am (PST) for an informative webinar that will discuss how the requirements for quantitative and qualitative post-processing diverge from the tried and true methods for steady state simulations.
