► Live Webinar - 45 Seconds of CFD @ 60Hz with XDB workflow
  19 May, 2015 

Big CFD Challenge: Landing in a Ship Airwake

Live Webinar - 45 Seconds of CFD @ 60Hz with XDB workflow
Thursday, May 21, 2015 – 12:00 Noon, EDT.

CREATE™–AV team and Intelligent Light tackle 45 seconds of flight time with unique in situ XDB workflow

The high temporal fidelity of 45 seconds at 60 files per second meant that an innovative approach would be needed to handle the data. The CREATE–AV team reached out to Intelligent Light for help. The unique workflow combined libsim and FieldView XDBs (extracts) to enable detailed animations that gave physical insight in hours rather than days.

With a goal of improved pilot training for Sea-based aircraft operations, the CREATE–AV team took on the task of coupling CREATE–AV Kestrel to the Navy flight simulator CASTLE. This two-way coupling might lead to better simulation of a difficult landing environment.

You will learn:

  • Benefits of in situ post-processing
  • Basics of implementing an in situ workflow
  • How to utilize XDB extracts that are 10 to 1,000X smaller than solution data

  • ► ADT Demonstrates Advances in Multidisciplinary Turbomachinery Optimization at ASME Turbo Expo 2015
      19 May, 2015 

    LONDON, UK and NEW YORK, NY, USA – May 18 , 2015 – Advanced Design Technology (ADT), a global leader in the development of advanced turbomachinery design methods and the TURBOdesign Suite is delighted to sponsor and exhibit at the ASME Turbo Expo 2015 in Montreal, Canada on 15 - 19 June where advanced methods for multidisciplinary optimization of turbomachinery components will be demonstrated.

    Now in its 60th year, ASME Turbo Expo is recognized as the must-attend event for turbomachinery professionals. The technical conference has a well-earned reputation for bringing together the best and brightest experts from around the world to share the latest in turbine technology, research, development, and application in the following topic areas: gas turbines, steam turbines, wind turbines, fans & blowers, Rankine cycle, and supercritical CO2. Turbo Expo offers unrivalled networking opportunities with a dedicated and diverse trade show floor. The 3-day exhibition attracts the industry's leading professionals and key decision makers, whose innovation and expertise are helping to shape the future of the turbomachinery industry and will feature a Student Poster Session.

    "Maturing efficiency levels in turbomachinery combined with market and legislative pressures to improve performances and reliability, while reducing development costs are straining the limits of the conventional turbomachinery optimization methods” says Prof. Zangeneh, Managing Director of ADT, “3D Inverse Design approaches for turbomachinery optimization can deliver considerable reduction in development costs and times providing an ideal platform for multidisciplinary turbomachinery design and optimization compatible with industrial development standard."

    ADT’s TURBOdesign Suite application to answer the needs for high performance and high reliability turbomachinery requirements will be featured in a presentation on multidisciplinary optimization of radial and mixed-inflow turbines for improved performances and reliability “Increasing Pulse Energy recovery of Turbocharger Radial Turbines by 3D inverse design method (GT2015-43579)” will be held during Session: 42-1 Radial Turbines on Wednesday, June 17, 2015 at 14:30 PM-17:30 PM.

    ADT engineers and representatives will be at Booth 513 to demonstrate the TURBOdesign Suite and show design engineers and turbomachinery manufacturers how to optimize preliminary designs as well as improve knowledge transfer between projects and design teams while significantly reducing design time and attaining higher performance and noise reduction.

    Registrations for the event are now open for limited places, for more information please visit

    ► CFD in the Textile Business. Who Would Have Thought?
      17 May, 2015 

    Fluid/Thermal analysts don't usually think about the textile industry when they discuss applications for CFD Software. But Murata Machinery, Ltd, a leading designer and manufacturer of textile machinery in Kyoto, Japan has been using CFD since the 1990s. Murata uses Cradle SC/Tetra CFD software to help design machines and tooling that use air flow to spin textiles.

    In this narrated interview, Mr. Hidetoshi Takeuchi, Manager at the Murata Machinery, Ltd. R&D Technical Development Center, discusses CFD for a yarn spinning machine that uses aerodynamic forces to twist the fiber. He also discusses application of CFD to other Murata products.
