Home Extending Dassault Systèmes' Solutions thanks to approved partners

Wednesday, 24 July 2013

For those of you looking for some interesting reading during Summer time (and even after…), we have updated our blogroll. A few 3DS partners have launched their own blog where they share their views, insights, ideas,… on how 3D can change the world we live in.
This is pretty interesting and less formal/corporate than the usual talks we can have and an invitation to debate and express your opinion with the partner and the readers.

So now, update your bookmarks:

- AMD: discover the latest state-of-art 3D graphics cards brought to the market by AMD and fully compatible with Dassault Systèmes' solutions.
- CD-adapco: everything you wanted to know about Computational Fluids Dynamics (aka CFD) is explained here by CD-adapco.
- Creaform: 3D printing is making the buzz at the moment but did you ever consider a technology that works in pairs with it: 3D scanning? Discover the world of 3D handheld scanner with Creaform!
- Dimensional Controls Systems: those of you interested in the world of automotive or aerospace really have to discover the world of tolerance analysis, the world of DCS!
- Golaemhow will a crowd behave in such or such situation? This is the questions Golaem can answer thanks to its simulations tools!
- Theorem Solutions: ever wondered if it was possible to switch from a CAD system to another? Check out how with Theorem Solutions.

And of course, there is the Dassault Systèmes blog, the place to discover more 3D experiences, to learn more about the world of 3DS and share your vision of the 3D with the community!

Enjoy all these valuable sources of content and ways to exchange and have a great Summer time!

Half of the year has passed and it is time to think about 2014... Like almost every year, our partner CD-adapco launches its famous calendar contest (click on the link for more details and T&Cs) and is looking for your contributions!


If your creation -designed with CD-adapco's solutions- is selected, not only it will appear on the 2014 calendar but you will also have a chance to win an iPad mini!

Don't loose time! Last year, more than 100 contributions were received last year! Competition will be tough!

Good luck and we look forward to seeing 2014 the way you designed it!

CD-adapco STAR Global Conference 2013 is approaching very fast. The conference will take place from March 18 to March 20, at the Sheraton Lake Buena Vista, in Orlando (FL).

This event is an unique opportunity for you to discover the latest innovations in the area of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD), not only at CD-adapco's but also innovations from their partners.

Also, it will be the time to learn from the experts by attending one of the best Practice Trainings including: Heat Transfer, Turbulence Modeling, CAD 2 Mesh, Meshing Strategy, Engine Simulation and more...

You can already register (don't wait, last year's passes sold out very quickly!) on the event's special website. Visit this website on a regular basis to get more info about the agenda, sponsors and practical information about the event!

Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) plays an increasingly critical role in modern Formula 1, not only in the design analysis of vehicle aerodynamics, but also in engine development through advanced in-cylinder simulation. CD-adapco is helping expert engine supplier Renault Sport F1 by providing engineering simulation tools that aid the development of innovative solutions allowing « Powered by Renault » teams to compete at the front of the field again in 2012/13 also to the clean-sheet design of an entirely new power unit for the 2014 season.

Design of Experiment

The Renault Sport F1 engine design engineers use CD-adapco's CFD tools, STAR-CCM+ and STAR-CD to rapidly explore new concepts and validate design variables through the use of DOE (Design Of Experiment) thus accelerating the design process by eliminating costly prototyping and testing phases. 

This year, Renault Sport F1 is representing one-quarter of the field by supplying four teams; Red Bull Racing, Lotus F1 Team, Caterham F1 Team and Williams F1 Team. In the previous two seasons, Renault Sport F1 engines have powered Red Bull Racing to consecutive World Championships.

Simulation is vital

Cédric Libert, Head of the simulation department, Renault Sport F1 commented, "CFD technology plays a fundamental role in the design and development of a modern F1 engine. The ability to simulate the behavior and performance of our designs quickly and accurately has a direct influence on our on-track performance. In addition to providing highly optimized solutions for the current V8 era, one of our biggest challenges at the moment is to develop the most innovative, energy saving 1.6 V6 turbocharged engine for the 2014 season. It is very clear that numerical simulation is vital for Renault Sport F1 to be able deliver this brand new F1 engine in less than 30 months. Through the extensive use of DOE, and with CD-adapco’s STAR-CCM+ and STAR-CD solutions and expertise, we can innovate and heavily reduce our time to market. We are pleased to continue our relationship with CD-adapco, an acknowledged leader in this field, as we work towards our 2014 deadline.

CD-adapco leads the race

Like all of the technology associated with Renault Sport F1, CD-adapco's products continue to evolve at great speed in order to stay in front of the competition. CD-adapco provides state-of-the-art simulation technologies for a broad range of applications including engine combustion, intake and exhaust, thermal cooling, batteries, electric motors, and turbochargers.

"Renault Sport F1’s success is built around teamwork and CD-adapco is proud to be a part of that team," said Bill Clark, CD-adapco’s VP Operations. "We have always been recognized as the leading tool in the automotive industry and are happy to continue demonstrating this by collaborating with winning industry partners like Renault Sport F1."

Dassault Systèmes' CATIA, combined with Fluent's Fluent-for-CATIA V5 or CD-adapco's STAR-CAT5 provide you with a complete suite helping you to analyse the most complex flow behaviors around aerodynamics surfaces.

At first sight, we imagine such solutions are used more or less exclusively in the aerospace industry but it is far from being the case! Did you think at windmill for instance?...

To know more about how CFD can help you, just visit our dedicated Computational Fluid Dynamics section (http://www.plmmarketplace.com/campaign/cfd.aspx) on PLM MarketPlace. If you wish further information, do not hesistate to leave a message using the contact forms!
