► SoftInWay Unveils Newly Redesigned Website
  18 Oct, 2016 

Burlington, MA, October 12 , 2016 – It was with crossed fingers and excited jitters that the SoftInWay team launched the new and improved The past few months had been leading up to the release of a fully redesigned and user-friendly browsing experience and the company couldn’t have been more thrilled to see the website go live.

The site includes extensive product information that will assist SoftInWay customers and clients in finding their own personalized solution tailored to their turbomachinery design, optimization and analysis needs. One of the most relevant updates that have been made includes the reflection of all of the new main software modules found in the company’s flagship software suite – AxSTREAM 3.5. Whether you need to conduct meanline or streamline analysis, profiling and blade design, rotor dynamics analysis, economic calculations and ROI of your project, or conduct a CFD or FEA analysis, each and every one of these capabilities is easily accessible via SoftInWay’s revamped user friendly design.

On the home page alone, users can browse by not only software solutions, but also engineering service solutions, or education and training needs. With its sleek design and refreshing look, the website is constructed with a similar goal as SoftInWay’s software platform – to save the user precious time on their project, be it designing a new turbines from scratch, analyzing secondary flow systems, or conducting thermodynamic cycle calculations for a nuclear steam power plants.

“When we began this project back in the summer of this year, it was with the user’s needs in mind. Clients and engineers are extremely busy with their day-to-day projects and the last thing they need is to sink time and energy looking for the tools to complete them, whether it be an entire software platform, a module, or some extra hands. If someone is in need of profiling and blade design, within two clicks, they are exactly where they need to be. The same goes for a company working on a centrifugal fan design or an axial turbine. Within three clicks, they can contact our able team at any time for more information and will receive an answer in industry leading time. This website reflects the same type of streamline solutions that we offer our customers through our software and services and we couldn’t be prouder of it “ said Valentine Moroz, the COO of SoftInWay Inc.

The new website, allows for easier navigation, seamless accessibility to a live person through the live chat and contact form features, and registration of classes as well as access to a bevy of turbomachinery resources. It also includes the latest software features released by the company.

► Best Practices in Combustion CFD Internal Combustion Engines November 2-3 2016 TU Darmstadt, Darmstadt, Germany
  17 Oct, 2016 

Coordinators: Profs L. Vervisch, A. Sadiki & D. Roekaerts Organiser: Dr Richard E. Seoud ================================================== registration Open for registration ==================================================

Background and objectives: ========================== Design and operation of modern combustion engines faces the need to combine high efficiency with low pollutants emissions, even under real traffic conditions. Computational Fluid Dynamics has become a powerful tool in design and analysis of internal engines. Many numerical models exist, each having a range of applicability, computational cost and accuracy. Consequently, CFD experts involved in internal engine simulations, in addition to usual CFD skills, need specific insight and knowledge in spray and combustion modelling in order to conduct thorough analysis. The present course addresses this need.

In this course, the participants will learn the best practices in CFD of internal engines. They will discover how to select models, how to validate numerical simulations, and which accuracy to expect. Spray injection, flame ignition, flame propagation, pollutants emissions, efficiency and knock effects, including complex fuels, are critical issues in the design of modern internal engines and a major part of the course is devoted to them.

The lectures of this course, all by well-known experts in the field, cover from basics to applications.

The course is held at the occasion of the publication of the ERCOFTAC Best Practice Guide on CFD of combustion, a copy of which will be provided to the participants.

In the course also the link will be made with the CFD programs and cases of interest for the participants. As a result, the course provides the means for CFD analysts to significantly enhance their use of commercial and open-source CFD software for combustion engineering applications.
