Analyzing turbulence structures for the Air Force

Jeff Chu is under a lot of pressure. He’s a graduate research assistant at The University of Texas Austin, analyzing turbulence by looking at how and where turbulence structures are formed as they flow over various surfaces. Chu’s research is being funded by the U.S. Air Force. The data is massive and the stakes are high. If the Air Force doesn’t see value in the terabytes of data produced by […]

Top 5 Reasons To Use Best-In-Class Tools Over Integrated Solutions

Integrated solutions for CFD and CAE tools provide a convenient framework for engineers using simulation in their design process. Although integrated tools like ANSYS Workbench and COMSOL Multiphysics are designed to provide flexibility on solution methodology and analysis, there are significant benefits to using best-in-class tools for design and optimization. Top 5 Reasons to Use Best-in-Class Tools for Design and Optimization More flexibility – Engineering practices are evolving over time and […]

Yeah, we do that: Tecplot ChemBond helps create stronger metals

It’s not computational fluid dynamics, our usual specialty. But it’s something we find just as elegant . . . and extremely intriguing. It’s quantum physics, and Tecplot is dipping right in. Here’s how: Last month, in a paper titled “Better Alloys with Quantum Design,” our Dr. Scott Imlay and a few other scientists demonstrated how chemists are lately using quantum physics to create stronger metal alloys. An American Physical Society (APS) synopsis […]
