Joseph Kummer, Propulsive Wing. For over a century mankind has devoted substantial resources toward achieving and improving flight. With the yearly threat of major wildfires and the ongoing conflicts in the Middle East as its primary focus, Propulsive Wing, LLC is developing unmanned aerial vehicle solutions for both domestic fire fighting support and military applications, covering a wide range of missions.
CD-adapco & Red Cedar Technology have joined forces to offer a breakthrough solution for design exploration and optimization with CAE/CFD simulation. Optimate is an add-on module for STAR-CCM+ that directly employs state-of-the-art process automation and design optimization technology. Optimate includes CD-adapco’s Power Token software licensing, eliminating the barriers
Adoption of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) simulation is emerging as a game changer for continuous manufacturing applied to Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients (APIs).
Presented at the STAR Global Conference 2012 As CFD is being embraced by the frame, wheel and component manufacturers in the cycling industry, some practical challenges are quickly emerging. Discussions and concerns regarding the scope and resources required to conduct CFD studies, as well as their relevance, are quickly evolving - a phenomenon which is not unique to the cycling community. In this presentation we will outline a process, that can effectively help to manage CFD in the overall design process by directly addressing data management and workflow issues. Particularly we see a...
Presented at the STAR Global Conference 2012 CFD analysis is becoming a tool of choice in the competitive cycling industry. Cycling product development has taken advantage of integrating CFD in its development process. Significant improvements were made, mainly for drag reduction. CFD also serves the marketing department: multicolored CFD pictures and other engineering data is now the standard for cycling products promotion. Following this trend and with the help of Lx R&D, Louis Garneau Sport introduced CFD in the development of what was going to be the Vorticce, their best time-trial...
Presented at the STAR Global Conference 2012 The presentation will be divided in the following sections: 1. Cervélo in the past A brief history of how Cervélo performed the aerodynamic analysis of bikes, such as the P4. The primary tool was the wind tunnel, a time consuming development phase, yielding good quantitative solutions but no qualitative solutions. A summary of development time and resources will also be included. 2. CFD Benchmarking Prior to the development of the replacement of the P4 time trial bike it was necessary to make sure that STAR-CCM+ provides the correct results in both...
Presented at the STAR Global Conference 2012 Spray drying has been used for more than a century, and from the outside, can seem to be a rather simple process. However, in contrast to the deceptive first appearance, the physical processes found inside a spray dryer are far from trivial and, as yet, are not fully understood. Therefore the spray drying process is still receiving active attention both from academia and industry. As an equipment supplier, Tetra Pak expends considerable effort to improve their spray dryers, enabling customers to make better powders at lower cost. CFD was recognised...
Presented at the STAR Global Conference 2012 The main purpose of an ART-XC telescope with X-ray optical system (Astronomical Roentgen Telescope - X-ray Concentrator) is to search space under a hard X-ray range to solve scientific problems within limits of “Spectrum-RG” experiment. One of the major requirements for the telescope is to ensure minimal thermal deformation of the construction from solar radiation and heating effect of spacecrafts in orbital flight. Therefore, a detailed computer simulation of temperature conditions and thermal deformation of telescope parts in outer space is...
Presented at the STAR Global Conference 2012 Behr is using various CFD simulation processes and methods within the development process of components for engine cooling applications. In the future STAR-CCM+ is going to be the standard tool for CFD simulations. The biggest challenges within these simulation processes are the stability and robustness of the simulations including the distribution of flow and temperature fields into the fluid as well as the temperature distribution in the adjacent solid. Due to the application of the methods within the standard development process, simulation...
Presented at the STAR Global Conference 2012 Spray nozzles are an important feature of many industrial applications. The traditional way to treat spray is to use Lagrangian particles with a suitable injector modeling in the CFD-simulations. STAR-CCM+ does provide a model (Pressure Swirl Atomiser and LISA-model) for the primary atomization that allows the user to set several spray parameters such as cone angles and mass flows. However, this method is only applicable to a pressure swirl spray nozzle. If a different spray nozzle is to be used a method that relies on experimental data has to be...
