► CFD Webinar: Unstructured Meshing using Altair CFD Solver AcuSolve
  29 Jul, 2014 

Mesh generation is an important step before performing computer-aided engineering (CAE) simulation. To achieve accurate result using reasonable computational and human resources, it is necessary to have efficient meshing and solver technology.

You are invited to attend a 1 hour webinar on Wednesday, August 6, 2014 at 2:00pm EDT (11:00am PDT): http://web2.altairhyperworks.com/altair-cfd-webinar-series

► CD-adapco Helps Advance the use of Simulation in Medical Device Industry
  29 Jul, 2014 

CD-adapco renews Medical Device Innovation Consortium (MDIC) membership

New York and London. July 29, 2014

CD-adapco™, the largest privately held CFD focused provider of Computer Aided Engineering software, today announced its renewed membership with the Medical Device Innovation Consortium (MDIC), the first public-private partnership focused exclusively on the unique needs of the medical device community. MDIC made tremendous progress in the first year by bringing together the key players in the field of Computational Modeling and Simulation (CM&S). This momentum will drive collaborations between industry, academics, non-profits and regulatory agencies. This allows CD-adapco to demonstrate the power of its CM&S tools in the support of benchtop testing and clinical trials, and to further develop its capabilities to serve this emerging market.

A 501(c)(3) nonprofit, MDIC is designed to create a collaborative environment where industry, government, non-profits and other experts can work together to advance pre-competitive medical device innovation. MDIC focuses on regulatory science: the tools, standards, and approaches that are used to assess a product’s safety, effectiveness, and performance. By fostering breakthroughs in regulatory science, MDIC aims not only to improve how medical devices are developed and evaluated, but also to reduce the time and cost of bringing new devices to market.

Advancing the use of simulation in the medical device industry is a key priority for MDIC. Simulation technology has the potential to revolutionize the field, enabling manufacturers and regulators to develop and test medical devices more quickly, with greater confidence, and at lower cost—giving patients faster, safer access to innovative, high-quality treatments. CD-adapco is proud to bring its expertise and resources to the table in this important work.

About the Medical Device Innovation Consortium

The Medical Device Innovation Consortium (MDIC) is the first-ever public-private partnership created with the sole objective of advancing the regulatory science of medical devices. Formed in late 2012, MDIC brings together representatives of the government, industry, and nonprofits to improve the process of developing and assessing new medical technologies for the benefit of patients. Members of MDIC share a vision of providing U.S. citizens with timely access to high-quality, safe and effective medical devices without unnecessary delay.

► Advanced Lithium-Ion Battery Simulation Tools Available
  28 Jul, 2014 

Computer software accelerates design of next generation advanced automotive batteries

New York and London. July 28, 2014

CD-adapco today announced the successful completion of its development project targeting the automotive and lithium ion battery industries, enabling faster design and development of advanced electric drive vehicle power systems. This project, which began in August 2011, is co-funded by the Vehicle Technologies Office in the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and managed by DOE’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL). This project is part of the competitive Computer Aided Engineering of electric drive Batteries (CAEBAT) activity launched by DOE in 2010. The initial award of the project was reported on July 7th, 2011 and the project team included CD-adapco, Battery Design Inc, Johnson Controls Inc and A123.

The methods developed within this program are now available within CD-adapco’s flagship product STAR-CCM+ and also in the application specific tool, Battery Design Studio. These solutions provide seamless integration between electrochemists and thermal engineers within the battery design process. Through linking the flow, thermal and electrochemical simulations into one environment, a highly accurate solution can be obtained. The models also span multiple computational domains from systems models to highly resolved complex 3D models. The image below shows an example of both the thermal and electrochemical results produced for a 12-cell module.

Johnson Control’s Director of Controls & Modelling Brian Sisk commented “We are pleased to have worked with our partners on the Department of Energy's CAEBAT project. CAEBAT has provided us with world-class capabilities to model the performance and safety of Lithium-ion batteries. These technologies have helped us design innovative battery systems and enable new fuel-saving technologies for vehicles."

Ahmad Pesaran, Energy Storage Group Manager in NREL’s Transportation and Hydrogen Systems Center, added “Continued progress developing and linking physics based models of batteries allows developers and designers to better understand the internal behavior of batteries in electric drive vehicles and explore new designs in a virtual environment, reducing the number of prototypes and tests required by a traditional build-break design cycle. The outcome of this project is expected to enable scientists and engineers to further improve the performance, cost, and lifetime of advanced lithium ion batteries in support of the DOE’s EV Everywhere Grand Challenge.”

“We are pleased that our battery simulation tools in STAR-CCM+, developed under the DOE CAEBAT activity, is already being used by a significant number of companies and universities to design battery packs faster,”indicated Steve Hartridge, Director of Electric & Hybrid Vehicles at CD-adapco.
