Ashland releases version 6.0 of Arena-flow computer-aided engineering software

Ashland Inc : 25 August, 2006  (New Product)
DUBLIN, Ohio, Enhancements to Arena-flow computer-aided engineering software for the metal castings industry have been released by Ashland Casting Solutions, a business group of Ashland Specialty Chemical, a division of Ashland Inc. (NYSE: ASH). A new installation wizard and Graphical User Interface (GUI) redesign are just two of the new developments featured in the Arena-flow 6.0 software version.
“With Arena-flow version 6.0, users have process specific options for engineering models, sand defaults, particle and porous media solvers and grid generator settings based on solver methodology,” said Mike Swartzlander, vice president, Ashland Specialty Chemical, and general manager, Ashland Casting Solutions. “The improvements now available in version 6.0 provide users with several additional tools to improve productivity and reduce costs.

The software delivers a complete picture of the entire core-making process including the blowing, gassing and purging cycles, as well as the capability to analyze the virtual cores before investing significant time, money and material in the core-making process. Arena-flow software also allows tooling manufacturers to validate optimum designs in virtual space to ensure that cold box tooling is optimized the first time.

Arena-flow technology was developed by Arena, LLC of Albuquerque, N.M., in conjunction with General Motors, NASA, the Department of Energy and most recently, Ashland Casting Solutions. Arena-flow computer-aided engineering software technology can be accessed by software license agreements as well as contract engineering projects conducted in Ashland Casting Solutions’ Design Services Center.
