Design Optimization of Francis Turbines
Posted Thursday November 19 at 2:38pm
ADT will host Efficiency Improvement and Cavitation Control of Francis Turbine Stages by TURBOdesign Suite on Thursday, December 10th, at 8am and 4pm GMT.
Francis turbines and hydraulic turbines play a major role in both small scale and large scale hydraulic energy plants and are increasingly being used for energy storage applications. The 3D inverse design method offers one of the best means of meeting multi-point and multi-objective requirements for hydraulic turbines as it can cover a large design space with very small number of design parameters.

Mentor User2User Conference
Posted Wednesday November 4 at 2:4pm
Mentor Graphics, a Siemens Business, will host User2User, a virtual online user conference on November 10th for North America and on December 1st for Europe.
For over 30 years, User2User has provided a forum for sharing best practices and discovering new techniques for tackling EDA’s biggest design challenges. U2U is a series of highly interactive, in-depth technical conferences that bring together our large Mentor user community.
Visualizing Higher-Order Finite Element Surfaces
Posted Tuesday November 3 at 3:7pm
Tecplot's foray into visualizing higher-order finite element geometry and solutions continues with a blog post on Visualizing Higher-Order Finite-Element Surfaces.
For higher-order finite-element surfaces, the geometry (x,y,z coordinates of any point on the surface) is defined for each element by polynomials in terms of the local surface coordinates (r,s).
Deep-Learning for Engineering Optimization
Posted Monday November 2 at 2:8pm
NAFEMS will host Deep-Learning for Engineering Optimization on November 5th.
Deep learning and AI have revolutionized how images, sounds and natural language are processed. Therefore, some problems that used to be considered intractable are now easily solvable. Computer Assisted Design (CAD) and Computer Assisted Engineering (CAE) are now on the way to follow the same track.
Five Days of Pointwise
Posted Wednesday October 28 at 10:3am
Pointwise is hosting a five-day virtual event during the week of 9 November to introduce Flashpoint Automatic Surface Meshing and other time-saving features new in Pointwise V18.4.
At 10 a.m. CST (UTC-6) Monday through Thursday, we will debut a new video highlighting the benefits of a different new feature. Find out why Chris Sideroff, principal director at Applied CCM, says, "Flashpoint is a game-changer for meshing."
Custom Valve Opening Conditions in Autonomous Valve CFD
Posted Sunday October 25 at 5:52pm
The simulationHub product development team has updated the Autonomous Valve CFD app to include custom valve opening conditions.
simulationHub’s Autonomous Valve CFD app undergoes constant improvements. These upgrades are usually based on the feedback that we get from our customers. Recently the product was updated with a new feature which has improved the selection of custom valve opening conditions.
Pointwise Introduces Intelligent Automatic Surface Meshing
Posted Friday October 16 at 12:18pm
The latest release of Pointwise’s computational fluid dynamics (CFD) mesh generation software includes automatic surface meshing, the first component of a planned suite of automation features called Flashpoint.
"A suitable mesh is just a stepping stone to a CFD flowfield solution," said John Chawner, Pointwise's president. "Too often, that stepping stone is a speed bump because of the effort required to generate a suitable mesh on a realistic geometry model. The new Flashpoint surface meshing combines automation with the control for which the Pointwise software is known."
