Stepan Zdbinsky, Aeronautical Research and Test Insititue, Czech Republic Fans of motorsport increasingly want to get a taste of what it feels like to go bumper to bumper with other race cars in a competitive environment. While the dream of owning a top sports car might be beyond the reach of the average armchair racer, an increasing number of companies offer the general public a chance to feel the adrenalin a high power car and a strip of tarmac brings, allowing clients to try out a days racing without having to invest large sums of money.

Dejan Matic - CD-adapco. Formula 1 is the world largest annual sporting event with over one billion cumulative viewers in 184 countries watching races across four continents. In the world of speed where fractions of second determine the dif ference between the first and last, the competition takes place not only at the race track but in the factor y as well. Branded with the name that por trays the vision of racing excellence, Formula 1 became the leading arena for development and testing of advanced automotive technologies. Dynamics 30 - Read more...
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 primar y focus, Propulsive Wing, LLC is developing unmanned aerial vehicle solutions for both domestic fire fighting suppor t and militar y applications, covering a wide range of missions.

Dr. Ignazio Maria Viola - School of Marine Science and Technology, Newcastle University, and Dr. Raffaele Ponzini - CILEA The America’s Cup is the oldest trophy in the world and the competing platform for the most advanced technologies in the marine field. In recent years, CFD has become the most powerful tool for both aero and hydrodynamic design. A research project steered by Dr. Ignazio Maria Viola shows how CFD can be applied to the design of an America’s Cup yacht. Dynamics 32 - Read more...
Deborah Eppel - CD-adapco While 1D flow simulation software can accurately and rapidly simulate simple tasks, such as long straight runs, they are not adapted to complex 3D geometries such as separators, slug catchers and dry trees. Full 3D Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) codes, on the other hand, have the proven ability to accurately predict flow in these situations, although typically at a much higher computational cost. Generating combined 1D/3D simulations promises the best of both worlds: by making it possible to simulate complex systems of piping and equipment at a much higher level...
Fred Mendonça & Prashanth Shankara - CD-adapco Numerical Simulation of Turbomachinery flows are among the most complex computations performed in the world of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD). CFD applied to Turbomachinery has come a long way from the inviscid 2D blade-toblade methods of the 1960’s and recent developments have ensured that numerical simulation plays a major role in turbomachinery design.

James Clement, Fred Mendonça - CD-adapco The NASA C3X internally cooled turbine blade is a well documented case for validation of Conjugate Heat Transfer (CHT). The following analysis demonstrates two key features of STAR-CCM+: multi-domain polyhedral meshing, which automatically builds continuous meshes between the solid, external and internal flow volumes, and transition modeling, which enhances the predicted heat transfer distribution, especially on the blade suction side.

Dr. Richard Johns - CD-adapco Although recovery of exhaust gas energy using turbochargers was first applied nearly 100 years ago and has been in widespread use in the heavy-duty diesel market ever since, it is only in recent years that turbocharging has spread to mass production vehicles in smaller engines. The phenomenal market growth, first in passenger car diesel engines and more recently in downsized gasoline engines, has been driven largely by the efficiency gains, and hence CO2 benefits, that can be realized. Plus, Formula 1 will be returning to turbocharging for the 2014 season...
Thomas Lauer - Vienna University of Technology, Austria The development of internal combustion engines with lower emissions and fuel consumption requires an early knowledge of the combustion mechanisms. Therefore, a method was developed at the Institute for Powertrains and Automotive Technology at the Vienna University of Technology that allows the prediction of the combustion stability based on simulations with STAR-CD. Dynamics 32 - Read more...
Fred Mendonça & Deborah Eppel - CD-adapco With the transport industry facing a continuing demand from customers and regulators to improve the aeroacoustic and vibroacoustics performance of their products, reducing flow-induced noise has become more relevant than ever. Traditional Fluid-Structure Interaction (FSI) CFD coupled methods have been judged too time consuming, technically challenging and/or computationally expensive to lend themselves to production level aeroacoustics analyses. However, by developing and commercializing a new fluid-structure integrated capability for...
