Flow Science Expands to Latin America

Today Flow Science announced that it has formed a new subsidiary, Flow Science Latin America SAS (FSLA), to sell and support Flow Science’s suite of computational fluid dynamics software products throughout Central and South America.

Supercomputing Complex Diesel Injection Mist at Army Research Lab

The ability to study complex interactions inside a diesel engine gives Army scientists a new perspective that may help design more fuel efficient and effective engines. Using state-of-the-art supercomputers, Army scientist Dr. Luis Bravo led efforts to create simulations highlighting the first year of his project, allowing them to investigate the jet fuel spray breakup process with microsecond time fidelity and sub-millimeter resolution, while generating petabytes of data.

Video: What’s New with Fortran?

Originally developed by IBM in the 1950s for scientific and engineering applications, Fortran came to dominate this area of programming early on and has been in continuous use for over half a century in computationally intensive areas such as numerical weather prediction, finite element analysis, computational fluid dynamics, computational physics and computational chemistry. It is a popular language for high-performance computing and is used for programs that benchmark and rank the world’s fastest supercomputers.

SimScale Offers Online F1 Aerodynamics Workshop

Today SimScale in Munich announced an online F1 workshop series focused on aerodynamics. “Today SimScale in Munich announced an online F1 workshop series focused on aerodynamics. The live online sessions will take place on Thursdays at 4:00 p.m. Central European Time, on March 17, 24 and 31. “Participants will get an overview of all the functionalities offered by the SimScale platform, while learning directly from top simulation experts through an interactive workshop and practical application of the simulation technology.”

Red Bull Racing Speeds Simulation with ANSYS

Today the Red Bull Racing Formula One team announced an extended agreement with ANSYS. The team uses ANSYS’ simulation software to optimize its vehicle design enhancements for a competitive edge on the track.

UberCloud Offers SaaS Service for ISVs on Microsoft Azure

Today the UberCloud announced plans to support independent software vendors (ISVs) in Computer Aided Engineering (CAE) with its new go-to-cloud service for the Microsoft Azure cloud platform. The service consists of containerizing the software provider’s software, developing a Software as a Service (SaaS) cloud business model, utilizing and tuning the ISV’s application software on Azure, testing and evaluating the cloud offer, and conducting marketing and sales initiatives together with the ISV.

ANSYS Simulation Technology Speeds ORECA Race Car Design

“Reliability and accuracy are crucial when it comes to developing successful cars,” said David Floury, Technical Director of ORECA. “ANSYS is a key player in the motorsport industry and their solutions provide our engineers with the necessary tools to evaluate and optimize a range of product design ideas across varied operating conditions, leading to enhanced product performance and integrity and ultimately winning championships. We are already working with ANSYS solutions for our future new car, the ORECA 07.”

GE & DOE Partner on HPC4Mfg Projects

Today GE Global Research announced that it has been awarded two projects under the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) High Performance Computing for Manufacturing (HPC4Mfg) Program. Teams of Global Research experts will work with teams at Oak Ridge and Lawrence Livermore National Labs on some of the world’s most powerful supercomputers to improve 3D printing processes and explore new concepts for higher jet engine efficiency.

UCLA Researchers Simulate Injured Human Leg

Researchers at UCLA have created the first detailed computer simulation model of an injured human leg–complete with spurting blood. The simulation is designed to make training for combat medics more realistic. “To create the simulator model, researchers combined detailed knowledge of anatomy with real-life CAT scans and MRIs to map out layers of a human leg–the bone, the soft tissue containing muscle and blood vessels and the skin surrounding everything. Then the design team applied physics and mathematical equations, fluid dynamics, and pre-determined rates of blood flow from specific veins and arteries to simulate blood loss for wounds of varying sizes and severity.”
