Fluent releases TGrid 3.4
Finite Element Analysis : 18 June, 2001
Fluent Inc announces the release of TGrid 3.4, its popular unstructured meshing tool for CFD model building. All CFD analysis requires that a geometrical representation of the problem be constructed and covered with a computational mesh, or grid. TGrid is one of several tools that Fluent provides to the users of its CFD software in order to streamline and take the guesswork out of the sometimes-tedious task of building a computational mesh. An unstructured mesh is made up of elements such as tetrahedra pyramids, and wedges, in addition to the traditional hexahedral (brick) elements, for greater flexibility, particularly in the case of complicated shapes. 'One key advance in TGrid 3.4 is the ability to grow prism layers along non-planar boundaries,' says Scott Gilmore, Fluent's Manager of Added-Value Analysis Products. 'This can substantially reduce design time,' adds Gilmore.

Fluent Inc. releases version 5.5 of its FLUENT software
Finite Element Analysis : 21 December, 2000
GT-Power is one-dimensional gas dynamics and engine simulation software developed by Gamma Technologies, Inc. (Westmont, IL). It is commonly used in the automotive industry for engine simulation. FLUENT 5.5 offers an option for users to couple their FLUENT simulations with their GT-Power simulations. This makes it easy for engineers to integrate their CFD flow modeling of components with the big picture, system-level simulation in GT-Power. Technological wizardry built into this coupling also makes the process fast and computationally economical. Currently, the coupling can take place in several areas of the simulation: velocity inlet, mass flow inlet, pressure inlet, and pressure outlet. To take advantage of the GT-Power/FLUENT coupling, users need a specialized license and the GT-Power library, specifically built for this coupling, from Gamma Technologies. Initially, this capability will be available on selected platforms only, with additional platforms planned for the near future.

The newest release of this state-of-the-art computational fluid dynamics software
Finite Element Analysis : 16 September, 2000
The reality is that fluids and structures don't live in separate worlds. They interact. 'When fluids and structures interact, a new set of engineering challenges are introduced: deflection, stress, vibration. These factors must be taken into consideration in order for the computer model to accurately reflect reality. Some engineers have been able to calculate fluid structure interaction by doing the programming gymnastics required to couple a flow modeling software program with a structural analysis program. FIDAP 8.5 makes this unnecessary, because the entire capability is contained within one software program', says Eric Grald, Fluent's FIDAP Product Manager.
