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.

Better Metal-Temperature Calculations Faster with Conjugate Heat Transfer (CHT) and CFD
Posted Tuesday August 30 at 11:24am
CD-adapco will host Better Metal-Temperature Calculations Faster with Conjugate Heat Transfer (CHT) and CFD on September 13th.

For power generation machinery involving three-dimensional, asymmetric hot fluid flows (such as gas turbines, steam turbines, turbochargers, heat exchangers, boilers, furnaces, etc.), Finite Element Analysis (FEA) will be required to assess whether those machines will be as durable as desired or instead prone to problems from thermal stress and fatigue. But why not use CHT with CFD to provide your FEA engineers with the most accurate metal temperatures possible, as inputs to their thermal stress calculations?
