New release of upfront CFD solution improves first-time user experience, extends flow and thermal design study capabilities, and supports high-performance computing

Blue Ridge Numerics announces the availability of CFdesign v10 upfront CFD software, the company’s flagship application dedicated to empowering engineers with CAD-driven tools that optimize fluid flow and thermal performance during the digital design phase.

In this major software release, CFdesign v10 focuses on further shortening the learning curve for first-timers and the occasional user while adding industrial-strength problem solving capabilities, including cavitating flow prediction and thermo-electric cooler analysis, to the engineering desktop.


Clear cut navigation and deep CAD associativity in CFdesign v10 takes away the mystery of CFD. Simple set up. Quick Solutions.“We focused on the total user experience from a first-timer’s perspective,” stated Blue Ridge President Ed Williams. “CFdesign v10 is about democratizing fluid flow and heat transfer simulation."

With CFdesign v10 an engineer with limited or no previous engineering analysis experience can achieve extensive flow and thermal design studies in a fraction of the time it would take most CFD experts. "By knocking down the intimidation-factor," explains Willimas, "we believe v10 makes it easier for companies to move CFD further upstream in the design process. For companies striving to deliver innovation and improve first time quality and time to market, the value proposition is more compelling than ever.”

LMS Imagine unveils National Instruments LabVIEW Real-Time interface in LMS Imagine.Lab AMESim Rev 8A PDF Print E-mail
Wednesday, 16 July 2008 21:28
Leuven, Belgium – LMS, the engineering innovation company, has integrated an interface for the National Instruments LabVIEW Real-Time module into the latest LMS Imagine.Lab AMESim platform release. This new interface extends the AMESim real-time hardware and software interface portfolio giving the end user more options to control the design process.

With this integrated interface, LMS Imagine.Lab AMESim users will be able to export AMESim models into National Instruments LabVIEW real-time test benches – creating an actual physical system around the AMESim model. Users in the automotive, aerospace and off-highway industries will appreciate this new feature when designing and validating engine control unit (ECU) strategies using hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) test benches.

LabVIEW is a graphical programming platform and development environment from National Instruments. LabVIEW applications range from control design and real-time control to graphical interfaces, data management and data acquisition cards for industrial processes.
Non-Uniform Voltage Distribution for ElecNet's Electric Field Simulations PDF Print E-mail
Wednesday, 09 July 2008 08:39

Montreal – July 7, 2008 - Infolytica Corporation announced today that the newest release of ElecNet is now available.

ElecNet, Infolytica’s 2D and 3D electric field simulation software, now supports non-uniform voltage distribution to accurately represent the operating conditions of devices such as larger scale power transformers or electrical bushings. ElecNet allows for electrodes to be excited with a non-uniform voltage distribution, accounting for the variations typically observed in these devices.

ElecNet also features the new Streamline Generator. Streamlines expand on the current post-processing tools to include charts of the V and |E| fields along a streamline or where values of maximum |E| or |J| occur.

Optimizing Sail Design for the 2008 Olympics Using 3D Air Flow Simulation PDF Print E-mail

“Fredrik Lööf & Anders Ekström are Swedish medal hopefuls in the Star class in Beijing. This 3D air flow analysis using EFD.Lab reveals massive flow separation behind the Star jib sail at angles near stall.”

July 2008

Finland-based sail maker WB-Sails is using EFD.Lab fluid dynamics simulation software from Flomerics to develop and optimize sails for Star and Finn class Olympic sailboats. “Our traditional panel codes predict sail forces reasonably well in the upwind case, when flow separation is not a major factor, but we were desperate for something more powerful to predict 3D air flow and sail forces on downwind legs and in the lighter winds that we expect in Beijing.” said Mikko Brummer, Head of R&D at WB-Sails.

1. Introduction:

The trend to articulate product offering is putting pressure on manufacturing companies like neverbefore. Therefore, the complexity of modern products and of the associated manufacturingprocesses is rapidly increasing. High complexity, as we know, is a prelude to vulnerability. It is afact that in all spheres of social life excessive complexity leads to inherently fragile situations.Humans perceive this intuitively and try to stay away from highly complex situations. But cancomplexity be taken into account in the design and manufacturing of products? The answer isaffirmative. Recently developed technology, which allows engineers to actually measure thecomplexity of a given design or product, makes it possible to use complexity as a design attribute.Therefore, a product may today be conceived and designed with complexity in mind from dayone. Not only stresses, frequencies or fatigue life but also complexity can become a design targetfor engineers. Evidently, if CAE is to cope with the inevitable increase of product complexity,complexity must somehow enter the design-loop. As mentioned, today this is possible. Beforegoing into details of how this may be done, let us first take a look at the underlying philosophybehind a “Complexity-Based CAE” paradigm. Strangely enough, the principles of this innovativeapproach to CAE have been established in the 14-th century by Francis William of Ockham whenhe announced his law of parsimony - "Entia non sunt multiplicanda praeter necessitatem" - whichboils down to the more familiar "All other things being equal, the simplest solution is the best."The key, of course, is measuring simplicity (or complexity). Today, we may phrase thisfundamental principle in slightly different terms:

Complexity X Uncertainty = Fragility

Advanced Core Loss Calculations for Coupled Electromagnetic and Thermal Simulations PDF Print E-mail
Wednesday, 09 July 2008 08:37

Montreal – July 7, 2008 - Infolytica Corporation announced today that the newest releases of MagNet and ThermNet are now available.

ThermNet now supports coupling with Magnet’s new core loss calculation method which computes the hysteresis plus the anomalous and eddy current losses in both 2D and 3D. In a simulation, the advanced core loss calculation algorithm for eddy currents takes different harmonics into account and, for hysteresis loss; it takes into account the minor loops.

Infolytica Corporation also released a detailed case study titled “Iron Loss Calculations in Laminated Structures Using MagNet”. It can be viewed by visiting http://www.infolytica.com/en/coolstuff/ex0166/.

Recently published on Ontonix website:

FE models are already the result of numerous assumptions, hypotheses, discretization processes, etc. This inevitably reduces the "amount of physics" the model can correctly represent. Nowadays, on top of FE, the so-called response surfaces are placed. These surrogate models peel away more more physics. Read more here.
