Prashanth Shankara, CD-adapco This article details results from the numerical simulations on the NASA Trapezoidal Wing geometry, focusing on the high lift prediction using the CD-adapco solver STAR-CCM+. Computations and validation were based on the guidelines and experimental data provided for the 1st AIAA High Lift Prediction Workshop (HiLiftPW-1) to assess the numerical prediction capability of STAR-CCM+ for high lift configurations.

Justin Smothers, JSC Engineers Jon Thornham & Chris Thornham, FLO Cycling Prashanth S. Shankara, CD-adapco In the grand theater that is modern competitive sports, the equipment is as crucial as the competitor. The advent of cutting-edge engineering technologies has pushed the boundaries of competition far and beyond what one could have envisioned a decade ago. In this multi-billion dollar industry, to stay ahead of the competition, high-end engineering plays a critical role in improving equipment constantly. Dynamics 33 - Read more...
Geneviève Dutil, Lx R&D inc. & Titus Sgro, CD-adapco As anyone who has ever ridden a bicycle on a windy day will testify, aerodynamics play a big part in cycling. Perhaps more than any other sport, competitive cycling is dominated by aerodynamics, as cyclists, clad in aerodynamic clothing and helmets, are forced to adopt uncomfortable crouched position on their bikes, minimizing their frontal area and reducing their exposure to the oncoming air.

Stephen Ferguson, CD-adapco The Lotus T128 is set to revolutionize the LMP2 category of the World Endurance Championship. Borrowing heavily from a process perfected in Formula 1, the T128 will be the first LMP2 car to be designed using an intensive engineering simulation process. I spoke with Stéphane Chosse, who is in charge of the design and engineering office at ADESS AG, to find out exactly how CFD has influenced the aerodynamic design of this exciting new racecar.

Cosmin Ciortan, Kåre Bakken, Det Norske Veritas (DNV) Twin Marine Heavylift AS (TMHL) is designing the Twin Marine Lifter system for installing and removing platforms. Each of the two heavy lifters has 4 rectangular buoyancy elements at one side, helping to lift the platform (on site) and place it on the bigger transport vessel. The buoyancy tanks are a challenge when assessing both resistance and course stability. DNV was called to assess the viscous resistance in calm water, the forces on the buoyancy tanks and course stability. Dynamics 31 - Read more...
Dennis Nagy, Vice President, Business Development - CD-adapco The ongoing push for more producible oil and gas reser voirs is leading the industry into greater offshore depths and harsher environments. The challenge of developing and producing from fields at depths up to 25,000 feet requires workers to operate unproven technology in harsher environments, including greater ambient pressure, lower temperature and dif ferent well fluid temperatures, pressures and compositions.

Juan Antonio Carrio - Prosolia. In 2008, Prosolia Solar Ener gy responded to the maturity of the Renewable Energy sector in Spain by under taking the development of photovoltaic (PV) panels with increased efficiency. STAR-CCM+, CD-adapco’s flagship software, was chosen to assist us in this challenging task. Introducing STAR-CCM+ to our company allowed our Engineering and R&D&I departments to unfold a range of new capabilities by translating the engineering simulation expertise acquired by CD-adapco throughout the years to Prosolia’s world of renewable and clean energy.
