Claus D. Simonsen, Senior Specialist, Hydro and Aerodynamics, FORCE Technology. Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) is becoming a major element in the consultancy services that FORCE Technology of fers to its clients in the marine sector. Dynamics 31 - Read more...
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.

Stephen Ferguson, CD-adapco. In order to meet the world’s energy demands in a sustainable manner, engineers need to deliver robust innovative technology. For 30 years, CD-adapco has enabled energy engineers to do just that in the ‘traditional’ energy sectors, and is now routinely applying the same advanced engineering simulation technology to the renewable energy sector.

Joseph Kummer and JB Allred, Propulsive Wing LLC Airborne allergens and contaminants found in public places have been proven to have an adverse effect on people, such as a reduced productivity at the workplace, an increased exposure to diseases on airplanes, unhealthy learning environments for children, and sometimes the occur rence of secondary infections in hospitals. One potential solution is the use of personal air ventilation systems, or PAVs. Dynamics 31 - Read more...
Matthew N. Godo, Ph.D., FieldView product manager, Intelligent Light In the world of CFD simulation, maximizing retur n on investment comes not just from reducing the cost of analysis while increasing output, but from fully mining that output for critical insight and accurate answers. STAR-CCM+ and STAR-CD users are well aware of the many benefits these power ful and popular solver codes bring to the design and engineering process, including the ability to solve complex, lar ge data problems. If analyzing that data can’t be done ef ficiently and ef fectively, however, the investment in those...
The last decade has seen an increased interest in the development of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) and their applications which are no longer restricted to the military field of operations. UAVs - either remotely piloted or fully autonomous - provide a safer, cheaper alternative to larger, piloted aircraft, as well as a valuable ‘bird’s eye’ observation platform mid-way between ground-based sensors and high-flying satellites.

Steve Hartridge - CD-adapco Since our collaboration was announced last year, the development teams of both CD-adapco and Battery Design LLC have been working hard to bring this exciting project to fruition. The principal objective of the project is to deliver a tool that will allow engineers to simulate flow, thermal and electrochemistry within a single code. Dynamics 31 - Read more...
Jean-Philippe Pélaprat - ORECA, France The aerodynamic configuration of a Le Mans Prototype depends on the nature of the track where it races: some pre-installed parts may be adjusted, such as the rear wing main plane or the flap. Regulations permit the homologation of various versions of the aerodynamic package but place restrictions on how many changes can be made. Typically, up to two “flaps” are allowed to be added on the front fenders in order to increase the front downforce. These flaps are the object of the aero analysis and optimization described in the article. Dynamics 31 - Read...
