► Beyond Process Simulation: CFD for the Chemical Process and Pharmaceutical Industries, May 2014
  21 Apr, 2014 

United States, May 9, 2014

Please join us for a complimentary workshop regarding the benefits of applying CFD in the chemical process and pharmaceutical industries.

Learn more at

The chemical process industry faces many challenges such as the rising costs of raw material and the need to develop processes and innovative products that meet safety regulation and performance demands. In addition, increased patent expiry, diversification and global competition drives the pharmaceutical industry towards continuous manufacturing, e.g. for the API (Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient) process. Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) has been identified as a key enabling technology in finding solutions to many of these challenges.

A CFD specialist will demonstrate:

* How to resolve local flow and heat transfer in stirred vessels and how to optimize the design. * The ease of setting up a particulate flow simulation using discrete element modeling capability to account for contact physics. * How to apply flow-coupled DEM (Discrete Element Model) technology to a tablet coating model in the API process. * How to use recent capabilities to investigate scalars such as coating thickness or moisture in particulate processes.

Join us for an educational morning seminar followed by lunch provided by CD-adapco.

► Cradle mid-May CFD Seminars in Dayton, OH
  19 Apr, 2014 

Cradle will offer three basic CFD seminars in Dayton, OH in mid-May 2014.

  • SC/Tetra Basic Seminar (May 12-13, 2014): Learn the basic operations of Cradle's general purpose, unstructured grid CFD software. SC/Tetra is recognized for its robust preprocessor with integrated geometry repair tools, flexible and controllable hybrid grid generator, powerful physical models, a fast and memory efficient solver, and professional quality post-processing tools.
  • Fluid Structure Interaction (FSI) Seminar (May 14-15 2013): Fluid Structure Interaction (FSI) problems occur when fluid/thermal flow and structural deformations depend on each other. In the past, simulation of these interactions have been largely ignored because of difficulties coupling the CFD and Structural FEA solutions together during solution convergence. Today, hardware and software advances have made FSI a reality. This two day course will provide foundational skills for setting up and solving FSI problems using Cradle SC/Tetra CFD Software and Abaqus.
  • scSTREAM for Electronics (May 19-20, 2014): Learn to use structured grid, scSTREAM CFD software to solve thermal problems encountered in electronics product design . scSTREAM is powerful CFD software used by many of the world's best known electronics companies for electronics thermal analyses. It can directly import a variety of native CAD formats, quickly meshes large models containing hundreds of millions of cells, efficiently calculates the solution, and provides insightful energy flow visualization using HeaPathView.
