News On November 13, I was able to visit the offices of CD adapco Group in Nuremburg, Germany. My visit was hosted by Dr. Milovan Peric, Director of CFD Product Development. Dr. Peric is a well known expert on CFD and co-author of one the most widely-referenced books in the field of CFD 'Computational Methods for Fluid Mechanics'.

Dr. Peric joined CD adapco Group in October of 2001 and since then has headed development of a new class of solvers based on computational continuum mechanics (CCM). What this means is that the solver is very general in nature and is not restricted to solving only the Navier Stokes equations. Sometimes this is referred to as "multi-physics".

The general nature of the solver allows different analysis methods to exist within the flow solver such as the capability to solve certain types of solid mechanics problems along with the fluid solution. Using such a tool it is possible compute deformations and stresses in the solid part simultaneously, without the need to couple an FE-solver for the latter part of the analysis.
