► Translating CFD Into Reduced Formula Racing Lap Times, Sep 2014, United States
  27 Aug, 2014 

Join us for a Webinar on September 25, 2014

Formula racing teams work in a fast-moving design environment, and using Direct CFD tools can translate into reduced lap times on the race track.

This Webinar will discuss how immersed boundary technology in KARALIT CFD together with advanced post-processing in Tecplot 360 EX revolutionized the CFD analysis of a Formula Renault Tatuus 2000 race-car (Courtesy of Tatuus Racing). You will learn how to automate, simplify, and speed up multiple full-car simulations of unique design points. We will illustrate the process by evaluating car designs of:

- Rear wing location - Interior engine-bay flow - Overall exterior aerodynamics

And finally, we will present the assessment of performance parameters including drag, lift, and detailed analysis of the main flow field.

► STAR-CCM+ Wing Video Tutorials and Best Practices for Subsonic, Transonic, and Supersonic now on YouTube!
  27 Aug, 2014

These videos cover the simulation setup and mesh best practices, and also covers the run, post processing, modification of the geometry, and running of a second wing design. There is also a video which covers how to create a wing geometry within STAR-CCM+ which can easily be adjusted to allow users to quickly test different designs since this automatically feeds into the existing CFD setup. The wing can be changed in terms of pitch at various points in the wing span, the wing length, the sweep, the height and/or length scaling of each airfoil profile at various points in the wing span, and the degree of wing dihedral or anhedral.

► Version 4 of DesignBuilder Released: Tailored for Architects and Building Engineers to Make Building Simulation Easy
  26 Aug, 2014 

PRESS RELEASE Contact: Christian Stalberg DesignBuilder USA +1 415-531-4610

DesignBuilder Software has released version 4 of its popular whole building energy simulation program ‘DesignBuilder’. Version 4 adds a substantial set of new features and improvements oriented to the different but overlapping needs of architects and engineers.

Santa Rosa, California August 25, 2014 - DesignBuilder Software has released version 4 of its popular whole building energy simulation program ‘DesignBuilder’. Version 4 adds a substantial set of new features and improvements oriented to the different but overlapping needs of architects and engineers.

DesignBuilder Packages for Architects ensure that designs meet performance targets at the early design stages by providing accurate and reliable energy and daylighting performance data. The Architectural simulation packages allow architects to link with BIM (Building Information Modeling) solutions, analyze solar shading, maximize the use of renewable technologies and test façade options in one comprehensive software program.

DesignBuilder Packages for Engineers consists of an integrated set of high-productivity tools to assist with the integration of mechanical systems within sustainable buildings design. Various design scenarios for HVAC systems and controls, facades, lighting, and renewable technologies can be evaluated with relative ease. Using drag and drop air and water components, HVAC systems can be constructed within DesignBuilder from scratch. Additionally, pre-defined HVAC templates, autosizing and zone grouping features save significant input time compared to competing products. The most commonly used EnergyPlus HVAC system types are readily available including all ten ASHRAE 90.1 baseline HVAC systems.

New features available as modules in release version 4 include:

* ASHRAE 90.1 Appendix G compatibility - ASHRAE 90.1 for 2007 and 2010 including constructions, materials, glazing systems, activities, lighting and HVAC systems for both LEED certification and IRS tax credits. * Optimization - helps identify design options with the very best combinations of cost, energy and comfort performance. * Cost - calculate the economic impact various building designs using construction cost, utility tariffs and life-cycle analysis.

All DesignBuilder packages provide sensitivity analyses at the click of a button. High quality technical and rendered outputs help communicate findings to clients in a way they can easily understand. Key performance indicators such as energy consumption, carbon emissions, thermal comfort, daylight availability and cost can be provided throughout the design process in both naturally ventilated and air-conditioned buildings.

When speaking at the V4 launch in July, Dr. Andy Tindale, founder and CEO of DesignBuilder, explained “The new functionality provided by version 4 really is a step-change in DesignBuilder’s energy and comfort modelling capabilities. Some major improvements to the modeller further enhance our existing strengths in the ability to create and edit geometry quickly and easily. The improved BIM import; enhanced LEED and ASHRAE 90.1 capability; new HVAC systems such as ground source heat pumps; tariff analysis; Simulation Manager for running parallel simulations; and, Optimisation for multi-objective cost benefit analysis have helped to strengthen our position as the leading interface to EnergyPlus.”

Company Profile

DesignBuilder Software Ltd specializes in developing high-quality, easy-to-use and affordable simulation software tools for assessing the environmental performance of building designs. The flagship product DesignBuilder provides data to building designers on energy consumption, carbon emissions, occupant comfort, daylight availability as well as the status of the building with regard to several national building regulations and certification standards. Leading services engineers and energy modelers across the world use DesignBuilder to gain an insight into the impact of their design strategies on building environmental performance. The software is the result of considerable investment in user interface technology and an uncompromising approach to software design.

The DesignBuilder software is distributed throughout the world by a network of reseller Partners.

► MicroCFD 3D Virtual Wind Tunnel - Version 1.0
  24 Aug, 2014 

MicroCFD released its 3D Virtual Wind Tunnel earlier this month. Here a brief overview with weekly updates:

The 3D version imports STL files, a standard CAD format based on surface triangulation, and the meshing process runs fully automated. The user only has to set the flow parameters and the roll, pitch, yaw angles of the model to start the simulation. Typical computation time on quad-core CPUs or CUDA core GPUs is 4 to 8 hours, depending on Mach number, at a resolution of 30 million cells. A 15-minute HD video demonstrates its main features and ease of use:

If the video does not stream into your browser due to limited bandwidth, it can also be downloaded prior to viewing. In that case, please go to the main download page, right-click on the SWF file and save it to your hard drive. When the download is complete, the SWF file can be opened by any browser. Please select F11 for full screen view, as SWF videos do not scale with the browser window, but are much smaller in size than resolution equivalent MPG files.

The 3D Virtual Wind Tunnel comes with a 7-day free trial period while all features are fully enabled. Please let me know if you have any problems with the installation or running of the program, if you decide to give it a try. Unlike the 2D Virtual Wind Tunnel, which comes in two editions, Edu and Pro, there is only one 3D edition currently available, and its academic pricing has not yet been set. - Thank you for your attention!
