CD-adapco, the largest privately held CFD-focused provider of Computer Aided Engineering software, is pleased to announce Pieterjan Platteeuw of CNH Belgium N.V. as the winner of the 2014 CAE Post-Processing Contest for his image of a New Holland combine harvester. The image illustrates the residue flow through the chopping and spreading mechanism of the combine, and was obtained as the result of a transient DEM (discrete element method) simulation in STAR-CCM+.
Resolved Packed Bed Reactors: DEM Backed CFD Simulation
The design of packed bed reactors is often challenging, requiring much experimental trial and error to investigate kinetics, heat transfer and fluid flow in order to come up with a final reliable design. Until recently, resolving particle scale geometries has prevented CFD from assuming some of this experimental workload. This webcast highlights a fully automated process for modeling, meshing and simulating packed beds of arbitrary complexity using DEM ( Discrete Element Modeling ) to fully resolve the geometry of the packed beds. Participants see how this new approach acts as a perfect...

From Reservoir to Refinery: The Value of CFD Simulation in Oil & Gas
If you have challenges related to fluid flow, heat & mass transfer and want to know if CFD can help. Or if you already have a CFD solution and are curious about the latest technology developments, then this educational webcast is for you. Whether it’s erosion, flow induced vibration and fatigue life, insulation design, safety studies, well containment, separation, Vortex Induced Motion (VIM), air gap and green water, valve slamming or understanding proppant behavior, CFD is providing valuable insight to engineers throughout the Oil & Gas industry. Through a series of case studies, the...
The other day, Dr. Design came to me with a new project: “ We must find the drag coefficient of a futuristic vehicle concept !!” As usual the deadline was yesterday. With the CAD in hand, I started to set up my simulation. I had to say, the meshing part was easy. I arrived rapidly to the point of setting up my boundary conditions, but here's where I ran into some doubt. How should I model the rotating tires?? Yes, the vehicle is futuristic, but not electromagnetic yet. I could see a few methods… Which one should I choose? It was way past the working hours so unfortunately, I couldn’t call...
