► CFD Simulations used in 3M Bair Hugger Trial
    9 Dec, 2018 

In a recent a trial about infections caused by the use of 3M's Bair Hugger during surgery CFD simulations were used to prove how the use of the Bair Hugger could cause small micron-sized skin-flakes to move up from the floor and cause infections.

More information and an animation of the CFD simulations can be found here:

► FEATool Multiphysics Toolbox v1.9 Released
    4 Dec, 2018 

FEATool Multiphysics version 1.9 has now been updated and released as a dedicated MATLAB Add-On and self-contained Toolbox. Available directly from the MATLAB Add-Ons Toolbar, FEATool now features easy and convenient one-click installation and Toolbox accessibility.

# Improved OpenFOAM GUI

Introduced with FEATool 1.8, the OpenFOAM CFD solver interface has been significantly enhanced and improved with the following enhancements

- Support for non-constant and general initial and boundary condition expressions (automatic interpolation of non-constant expressions to OpenFOAM boundary case files, such as parabolic flow profiles)

- Support for axisymmetry and swirl flows (automatic conversion of 2D grids to 3D periodic wedge grid slices compatible with axisymmetric OpenFOAM case files)

- Support for inviscid compressible flows with the rhoCentralFoam solver

- Improved k-epsilon and k-omega turbulence modeling interface with automatic calculation of turbulence inlet quantities via given turbulence intensity and length scale

- Real-time convergence curves plots. Convergence curves are now displayed during the solution process for easier and more convenient solution process monitoring

The MATLAB CFD interface for the OpenFOAM CFD solver allows users to conveniently model both laminar and fully turbulent incompressible and compressible flow problems all within an easy to use fully integrated Graphical User Interface (GUI).

The modeling and simulation steps can optionally be saved from the FEATool GUI and exported as editable m-file script files. This allows for programmatic modeling and custom scripting with support for all MATLAB toolboxes and functions.

# New Physics Modes for Flow Simulation

FEATool 1.9 features two new pre-defined physics modes for flow simulations. The new compressible Euler equations physics mode allows for modeling of inviscid and supersonic fluid flows with shock-waves. In addition, the built-in CAD tools now also feature built-in and pre-defined wing shapes for NACA 4-series wing profiles. Moreover, a dedicated axisymmetric physics mode for flows with swirl effects is now also available (modeling axisymmetric flows with non-zero azimuthal velocity).

# Solver Improvements

Along with the new pre-defined flow equations the built-in solvers have been significantly improved to better handle more challenging flow regimes. Incompressible flows are now per-default discretized with linear P1 FEM elements and stabilized with a Pressure Stabilized Petrov-Galerkin (PSPG) formulation. In contrast to the previously employed P2P1 FEM elements this new approach leads to a more cost effective discretization and faster time to solution. Furthermore, incompressible flow problems can now be initialized with inviscid potential flow solutions for better initial guesses and improved solver convergence.

In addition, for high Reynolds number and convection dominated problems a new discrete TVD type upwinding approach is employed which, in contrast to traditional FEM artificial (SUPG) stabilization, can eliminate unphysical under and over-shoots and also efficiently capture discontinuous phenomena such as shocks. This type of stabilization also improves general convection-diffusion type problems, such as heat transfer problems involving advection and chemical reaction problems.

# Additional New Features

- Improved grid generation interface with support for boundary layer meshing - More accurate parametrization and meshing of curved boundaries - Built-in automated tutorial models and examples - Direct point evaluation for 2D surface plots (by clicking in the plot) - GUI and user interface (UI) improvements - Extended backwards compatibility to MATLAB 2009b

► Cloud forced IBM to buy Red Hat
    1 Dec, 2018 

IBM recently announced that they will acquire Red Hat for $34 billion. This is IBM's biggest acquisition ever. This will have a strong effect on the future development of HPC in the cloud. The very quick developments of public cloud and container services like AWS (Amazon Web Services), Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud Platform has forced IBM to do something to remain an important player in this quickly growing area. Buying Red Hat will quickly make IBM a front-runner in the technologies used to run these public cloud platforms.

Over the last couple of years we have seen more and more CFD-related services run on Cloud platforms like AWS and Azure. All supercomputers on the Top500 list run Linux, and both IBM and Red Hat have worked on HPC related technologies for a long time. Red Hat will now most likely become a division under IBM's Hybrid Cloud Unit. IBM has proved to be quite successful in handling open-source projects, hopefully they will allow Red Hat to grow and continue to develop Linux and cloud and container functionality under open-source... interesting times ahead.

► Invitation for Live Webinar on "Scale-Up your Scale-Up and Tech Transfer using MixIT"
  29 Nov, 2018 

Stirred tank reactors are one of the most critical manufacturing equipment in the pharmaceutical industry. Most of the API manufacturing is done in batch stirred tank reactors. However, these batch reactors continue to pose one of the most challenging scale-up problems. One of the main challenges associated with the stirred tank reactors is the large number of design variables they involve. Each of these design variables – whether it is geometric or operational – exert their own influence on the flow behavior in the vessel. The webinar discusses the methodology that process engineers can incorporate to overcome these challenges and the tools that can be used for the purpose. The webinar also introduces MixIT – a reactor design solution created by Tridiagonal – that provides engineers with insights into flow behavior in the reactor and helps estimate critical performance parameters for a given process. Register @ https://tridiagonal.com/events/scaleup-your-scaleup-using-mixit/ Case Studies Will Be Demonstrated Involving Processes Like Liquid Mixing, Solids Suspension And Gas-dispersion
