Following another win last weekend in Portsmouth, UK, Land Rover BAR are now leading the overall Louis Vuitton America’s Cup World Series. The America’s Cup has changed a lot since it was first sailed, back in 1851. Today, spectators gather not only to admire the skill, strength and endurance of the sailors, but to witness the incredible synergy within the team, the symbiotic relationship between the sailors and their boat, and to behold the extraordinary view offered by these competing, foiling yachts. Cutting-edge engineering is relied upon to enhance human performance and make it reach levels nobody would have ever thought possible; likewise, the sailors’ strategical decisions and skillful maneuvers are essential to make the most of an ever-evolving, state-of-the-art technology.
It could be argued that tradition and science are poles apart; while one is based on beliefs and long-established customs, the other is firmly grounded in rigorous research and methodology. Yet traditionally, they’ve both found their place in engineering. But as technology continues to advance where traditional methods falter, aren’t we better off just focusing on science?
The end goal of any design is a reliable, well-performing product, yet achieving these characteristics in the design of electronics systems is a challenging endeavor. A range of factors contribute to the challenge including the constant need for ever-increasing capabilities, compressed design schedules, and ever-decreasing size – all while avoiding a host of failure modes. This report highlights how CFD can help the Electronics Industry discover better designs, faster, through a wide sampling of applications, addressing a range of physical phenomena important to the different designs, from...
STAR-CCM+ v11.04 brings Solution History support for derived parts! This improves interaction with transient results and facilitates more effective communication by storing iso-surfaces and all section types (plane, constrained plane, cylinder, sphere, and arbitrary section) in your Solution History files.
Throughout the world, companies in the Energy & Power (E&P) industry are challenged to meet ever-increasing demands for energy efficiency and reliability with the electricity-generating machinery they produce such as gas & steam turbines, wind & hydro turbines, generators, compressors, combustors & burners, nuclear reactors, as well as power plant auxiliary systems such as heat exchangers, pumps, & fans. Moreover, the need to reduce the level of harmful emissions produced during the power-generation process is continually increasing as well. To help find solutions to...
