High Pressure Die Casting Webinar Series
Posted Wednesday October 19 at 12:29pm
High pressure die casting (HPDC) simulations are typically quite complex. To accurately model the entire physical process one needs to account for heat transfer, melting and solidification, air entrainment, surface defect tracking and cavitation.

In this three-part webinar series, Flow Science will simulate the entire HPDC process in FLOW-3D Cast. We will also demonstrate the power of the new process-oriented workspace that implements the necessary physical models and numerical defaults while setting up the stages of thermal die cycling, filling, solidification and cooling.

CFD Aids Solar Car Project
Posted Sunday September 18 at 7:50am
Chasing the sun 3000km across the Australian Outback is a grueling test. And doing it in a solar-powered vehicle is an even bigger challenge. But every two years teams from around the world converge on Darwin, Australia, to make the journey to Adelaide in the solar-powered cars they have engineered specifically for the Bridgestone World Solar Challenge.

The Stanford Solar Car Project, a student-run, nonprofit organization within Stanford University, has been designing and building solar cars since 1989, and arrives in Darwin every two years with a stunning new vehicle.
