Simulating Motion with Ease Using Overset Mesh
Posted Thursday September 18 at 12:43pm
CD-adapco will host Simulating Motion with Ease Using Overset Mesh on October 16th at two different times.

Many real engineering applications which have not traditionally benefited from simulation in the past involve complex relative, interlocking motions that cannot be modeled by the simple rotational or translational models that are common in simulation software. This presents a headache to remeshing and morphing techniques.

By Scott Burch, CFD engineer, and Dean Cowling, Team manager
Garry Rogers Motorsport

In June 2013 Volvo Car Australia announced that Garry Rogers Motorsport (GRM) would become the base of its factory backed V8 Supercar team, joining forces with its global racing partner Polestar. Featuring a 650 horse power 5 liter V8 developed and built at Volvo Polestar headquarters in Gothenburg, Sweden, the bodywork and aerodynamics of the S60 derived racecar was to be entirely designed and constructed at the GRM headquarters in Australia. The finished product races from 0-100 kph in 3.2 sec and reaches a top speed of over 300 kph.

Simulating Water Pumps and Hydro Turbines for Energy and Power
Posted Monday September 8 at 10:5am
CD-adapco will host Simulating Water Pumps and Hydro Turbines for Energy and Power on September 16, 2014 at two different times.

Companies involved with energy-production and power-generation appreciate that their machinery must be efficient, reliable, and durable. To achieve these goals and help ensure ever-higher levels of performance with turbomachinery, engineers continue to rely on and benefit from advances in engineering simulation software.
