Deadlines: September 26, 2003 (abstract)
Type of Event: User Conference, International

ESSS and ANSYS/CFX invite all South American CFX Users and people interested at the CFD technology, particularly at the software CFX, to participate in the 1st CFX South American Users Conference to be held in Florianópolis from October 20th until 22nd.

It is important to mention that this Conference is going to be the first of its kind held in South America and we hope to be a tremendous success as the Oil Workshop held earlier this year by ESSS and PETROBRAS in Rio de Janeiro.

The event

The main objective of the event is to create a discussion forum to those interested (users and potential users) in Computational Fluid Dynamics Software and in some of the applications related.

This Conference is a 3-day event and joins the majority of the CFD related people in Brazil, and other countries in SA. We are expecting engineers from all ESSS commercial clients in SA and their partners from academy. Participants and attendees are going to have the opportunity to get in contact with a broad range of Fluid flow modeling and be acquainted with on-going research projects carried out in Brazil and other SA countries.

The conference will focus on how companies can optimise their product and process design activities by exploiting the latest CFD solutions from ANSYS CFX.

It's an excellent opportunity to:

  • get up-to-date information about the efficiency and capabilities of today’s CFD software;
  • share knowledge and experiences with fellow delegates;
  • learn about ANSYS CFX’s latest technologies and CFD solutions;
  • participate in Short Courses, presented by experts to update your knowledge in special areas;
  • visit the exhibition to learn about the software and hardware products of our partners;
  • meet ESSS support staff, senior management and account managers;
  • give us your opinion on our products and services, and present suggestions for improvements.
The event is organized to be attractive to existing CFX users and to people interested in CFD solutions who are not currently CFX customers.

We invite all of the CFX customers, researchers from companies and professors (students) to present technical papers on their CFD work. These presentations will cover a wide range of applications in the fields of:

  • Aerospace
  • Automotive
  • Fire and Safety
  • HVAC
  • Marine
  • Metals
  • Power Generation
  • Chemical and process engineering
  • Oil & Gás
  • Turbomachinery
  • Quality assurance of CFD calculations
Contributions from other fields are also welcome. There will be numerous opportunities to receive demonstrations of our software products.

Two short courses are confirmed, one to be performed by Professor Clovis R. Maliska, from Universidade Federal de Santa Catarina, Mechanical Engineering Department, named "Element-based Finite Volume Method" (EbFVM), and the other one two be performed by Professor Aristeu da Silveira Neto, from Universidade Federal de Uberlândia, Mechanical Engineering Department, named "Introduction to Turbulence on Fluids".
