Vortex Induced Vibration (VIV) Analysis of a Riser showing vorticity magnitude behind the riser and pressure on the riser
The CD-adapco Global Academic Program congratulates Alex Haldane for winning the CD-adapco Academic STAR Simulation Contest! Alex’s submission, STAR-CCM+ LES Simulation of Poppet Valve Using Morphing Mesh and Dynamic Remeshing , was chosen from a number of videos submitted by academics from all around the world. Alex recently finished his third year of the four year Mechanical Engineering MEng course at the University of Warwick in the UK. As top prize winner, Alex’s video will be featured on the main page of the CD-adapco website along with winning an iPad Mini and a CD-adapco Global...

Perhaps one of the greatest challenges currently facing the aerospace industry is the imminent retirement of a large amount of the workforce. According to a recent workforce study, nearly 50% of employees in large aerospace companies will be eligible for retirement in 2014. The industry, accounting for more than 5% of the United States’ Gross Domestic Product (the market value of all final goods and services in the country) by itself, faces enormous challenges as such a massive “brain drain” depletes the available workforce and saps it of critical experience.

The broad category of Human- Powered Vehicles (HPVs) includes all those mechanical means of transport driven or ridden by man that use only human muscle power, or in an assisted manner, to transport people, animals and goods across land, water, underwater and, even, in some cases, by air. Human-Powered Vehicles (HPV) include all forms of transport by land, water or air where the vehicle is mainly driven by human power. Of late, variations of HPVs have started to include assistance from other power sources like electric engines to make them more feasible for multiple applications while still...
Solid dose tablet manufacturing processes often lack reliability and robustness as a result of errors in production and a shortfall in process control. Facing unprecedented economic pressures, pharmaceutical manufacturing companies are continuously looking to improve on the quality of their products and the productivity of their processes. Multiphysics numerical simulation is emerging as a game-changing technology to help step up efficiency, enhance quality, and shorten time-to-market through virtual prototyping and optimization.

With the ever-increasing spotlight on fuel efficiency and emission control, turbochargers are projected to be in increasing demand with more cars adopting this technology for increased power and more miles per gallon of fuel. Initially designed for aircraft engines operating at high altitudes, turbochargers offer an elegant, simple boost to an engine’s performance and are being adopted in cars, motorcycles, trucks, trains and marine vessels. Turbochargers convert the waste exhaust gases from the engine into compressed air for the engine, resulting in more air intake which allows the engine to...
