Bringing More Excitement to Auto Racing with Mushroom-Busting Designs

Tecplot Chorus Helps Swift Engineering Inc. Change Mushroom-shaped Wakes on Formula Race Cars to Make Passing Easier and Auto Racing More Exciting The race does not always go to the swift, especially when it’s Formula auto racing, where the wake of a race car can be turbulent enough to prevent others from passing it, no matter how fast they’re going. “That can make it pretty boring to watch, as well,” […]

Supersonic Unmanned Aerial Vehicles Close To Becoming Reality

Researchers at University of Colorado developing supersonic UAV that’s fast, economical, and fuel-efficient It’s small. It’s fuel-efficient. It’s reasonably priced. And it’s fast. Supersonic fast. It is an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) that will fly at speeds approaching Mach 1.4 and faster than anything in the sub-50 kg vehicle category today, using an engine two to four times more efficient than any other in its class. Under development by researchers […]

Case Study: Unified Environment for Comparing and Validating Results from Multiple Reservoir Simulators

In a world as technically intricate as the oil and gas industry—when billions of dollars of revenue are on the line—reservoir engineers must be confident that they have predicted the behavior of complex systems with reasonable accuracy. Dr. Richard F. Strickland, president of The Strickland Group, is an expert in the field of reservoir behavior analysis. In his business, he is frequently asked to compare disparate reservoir simulation datasets of […]
