UK MOD (Ministry of Defence) scientists from the Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (Dstl) have taken delivery of ICON FOAMpro, for their built environment simulation activities in civil defence and military threat assessments. Dstl use Computational Fluids Dynamics (CFD) to model various indoor and outdoor dispersal scenarios in public spaces and to develop protective measures. (more…)
Engineers can now perform simulations faster and easier with the latest ANSYS 18.1 release. This release expands and enhances the software’s capabilities to support more complex simulations, enable simulation earlier in the design cycle, reduce the number of development cycles, and reduce time to market.
ANSYS 18.1 improves the capability of current tools and adds new features and capabilities.
Engineers can now use the Pointwise CFD mesher and the EXN/Aero solver tools via an online platform in order to improve performance, accuracy, and save time and money. Pointwise Inc. and Envenio recently announced a co-licensing agreement to provide both products over the Nimbix High Performance Computing (HPC) cloud-hosted system. (more…)
