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.

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...
Dr. Gerald Seider - InDesA InDesA is an engineering consultancy and services company with specialization on complex fluid flow and heat transfer simulation and analysis for industrial applications. Although the history of InDesA is still young, our leading engineers look back at 20 years of experience in the field of automotive and power train development. Besides we have developed simulation techniques for other competence fields like general aerospace, marine, energy and for the environmental sector. Dynamics 32 - Read more...
Stephen Ferguson - CD-adapco For electronic devices, temperature is a limiting factor. Packing technology, driven by constant consumer demand and competitive pressure, allows higher power density than current cooling technology can handle. Sustained elevated temperatures act to not only reduce component efficiency, but also to reduce product life. Effectively controlling the temperature of electronic systems, in an intelligent and sustainable manner, is therefore the key to producing smaller, more powerful and more resilient electronic devices.

Stephen Ferguson - CD-adapco The control of component and system temperatures remains one the most significant challenges in the design of electronic systems. From chip to chassis and beyond, excessive thermal loading limits the maximum performance of an electronic device and significantly increases the energy footprint of the system.

Scott Del Porte - CD-adapco SPEED software, which has been in development for the last 25 years, comprises a client base of over 1000 engineers, including many of the world’s leading manufacturers, designers, developers and users of electric machines. SPEED allows users to design electric machines such as induction motors (polyphase/1-phase), brushless permanent-magnet motors (square wave/sine wave), d.c. brush motors, switched reluctance motors, and synchronous reluctance motors. Many of the new features in SPEED are intended for generators as well. Dynamics 32 - Read more...
Stephen Ferguson - CD-adapco In June 2011, CD-adapco acquired the electric machine software, SPEED. The version 2011 release is available with over 350 enhancements. SPEED software allows users to design electric machines such as induction motors (polyphase/1- phase); brushless permanent-magnet motors (square wave/sine wave); d.c. brush motors; switched reluctance motors; and synchronous reluctance motors. Many of the new features in SPEED are intended for generators as well. With over 1500 customers using SPEED for over 20 years, they are among the leading manufacturers, designers,...
Interview with Steve Hartridge, Director, Electric & Hybrid Vehicles on CD-adapco’s unique simulation tool for the design and analysis of Li-ion batteries One year after the STAR-CCM+ Battery Simulation Module (BSM) was first released, we meet with Steve Hartridge, Director, Electric & Hybrid Vehicles at CD-adapco, for an update on this unique battery technology. Dynamics 32 - Read more...
Tim Miller - CD-adapco Civilization as we know it is utterly dependent on electricity, most of which is generated in thermal power stations by large rotating machines. About 60% of all electric energy is used in electric motors driving pumps, fans, and compressors not seen by the general public. Without them we would have no water and no waste treatment. No machinery, no clothing, no transport, and no food. Without electric generators and motors, we would be set back to the 19th century. Dynamics 32 - Read more...
Alex Pope - Overview Ltd. The increased accessibility of CFD, provided in part by innovative products such as STAR-CCM+, has led to the adoption of simulation technology at many companies that have little previous experience of Computational Fluid Dynamics. In this article, Alex Pope, of Overview Limited, explains the challenges and rewards of introducing Computational Fluid Dynamics into an organization for the first time. Electronics Special Report - Read more...
