Flavio Cimolin, AMET S.r.l, Andrea Menotti, Olsa S.p,A, Lucia Sclafani, CD-adapco The design of rear lamps for the automotive industr y is becoming more challenging as an ever finer compromise between product lightness and resistance to heat loads needs to be found. Only after engineers have successfully achieved this delicate but essential balance, style and aesthetics considerations can be added to the equation. Dynamics 31 - Read more...
Yoshihiko Sunayama, Ph.D - Group Leader, CAE Group, Digital Engineering Dept. Suzuki Motor Corporation In the development of a sports motorcycle, a balance must be achieved between low drag to improve per formance and good air flow through the cooling system to maintain reasonable fuel economy. Typically, however, a low drag coef ficient (CD) and increased flow through the heat exchangers are contradictory in nature, as an improvement in one leads to deterioration in the other. With this in mind, Suzuki looked to STAR-CCM+ to help optimize their bike designs by studying aerodynamics and heat...
CD-adapco is pleased to announce that its industry leading simulation tool, STAR-CCM+, now includes a direct link to Abaqus FEA from SIMULIA, delivering fully coupled, two-way, fluid-str ucture interaction (FSI). Dynamics 31 - Read more
Wilson Sporting Goods Co. Teams with CD-adapco Wilson is taking its soccer balls to the next level in aerodynamics research using CD-adapco’s STAR-CCM+ software on Windows HPC Ser ver 2008. Dynamics 31 - Read more...
Drew Robb, freelance writer. In the quest to improve efficiency and per formance of gas turbine engines, manufacturers over the past few decades have steadily altered their designs to increase turbine inlet air temperatures. Although this achieves the desired result, it produces the side ef fect of over heating the blades - and that leads to low cycle fatigue failures. But with oil prices fluctuating and the industr y accepting the reality of the need to reduce carbon emissions, the tendency toward higher turbine inlet temperature continues unabated. This poses considerable challenges for the...
Anne Boorsma, Patrick Fitzsimmons, Dejan Radosavljevic and Stewart Whitworth, Lloyd’s Register ODS Technical Investigations and Analysis Consultancy, UK. Lloyd’s Register ODS has recently been involved with the investigation of a number of vibration and noise related habitability problems aboard feeder containerships of 2000-3000 TEU capacity having all-aft deckhouses; feeder containerships are relatively small vessels that transport car goes to and from large, long-haul container terminals.

Marco Giachi, Eng., Centro Studi Storici di Assomotoracing. Dr. Anthony Massobrio, CD-adapco. One of the most interesting aspects of competition motor racing is watching the gradual development of the vehicles’ technical features over the years, the most impor tant of which provide a snapshot view of leading aerodynamic design thinking of that time. It is impor tant to know the histor y of motor racing technology not only for purely cultural reasons, but for educational reasons too, in order to train young engineers and future aerodynamics designers.

Soonseong Hong, Byungkeun Oh & Yongtae Kim - GM Daewoo Auto. Joel Davison - CD-adapco London, Wondae Jeon & Bongyong Jin - CD-adapco Korea. Whether it is lean manufacturing, six sigma, or some combination, quality improvement is now a primary focus of virtually every manufacturer in the automotive industry. Now that the waste is squeezed out and quality is designed into manufacturing processes, visionary corporations are looking upstream toward the engineering of the product for fur ther gains in quality.

John Mannisto & Joel Davison, CD-adapco Since the first Model T rolled off the famous Ford production lines, the issue of engine cooling has been of prime concern to vehicle designers. Putting an inter nal combustion engine inside a confined space will always provide a ster n engineering challenge, as the explosive combustion of the fuel used to drive the vehicle releases ener gy not only in its kinetic form but, by the nature of the process, as heat. Ensuring this thermal ener gy is dissipated in a way that will not harm the components “under the hood” is essential to ensure that your...
James Ippolito, Dejan Matic & Joel Davison, CD-adapco. With increasing environmental concer ns and rising oil costs, fuel cells are attracting great interest as a por table power source for transpor tation and power generation applications as a cleaner and cheaper alter native to combustion based systems. In recognition of this, CD-adapco in par tnership with the Depar tment of Ener gy’s Pacific Nor thwest National Laborator y (PNNL), has developed a new Exper t System, es-sofc, which is playing an impor tant role in optimizing SOFC (Solid Oxide Fuel Cell) design. This ar ticle highlights...
