Theorem Solutions, UK Midlands engineering interoperability specialist is further extending its ability to serve the UK manufacturing sector by joining the Manufacturing Technology Centre (MTC). Recently established in entirely new facilities in Ansty Park, Coventry, MTC represents a £40.5million investment which has been developed in response to the Government’s manufacturing strategy, which sets out an ambitious new vision for high technology manufacturing. The focus of the MTC is to prove innovative manufacturing processes and technologies in an agile environment in partnership with industry, academia and other institutions. This means that Theorem joins founder industrial members Rolls-Royce, Aero Engine Controls and Airbus UK, and research partners including the universities of Birmingham, Nottingham, Loughborough and TWI Ltd.

Theorem will contribute to projects where data needs transforming from one format to another, where validation of translated data is essential and in the creation of automated processes including automated movement of engineering data and automatic audit trail creation.

The MTC provides a high quality environment for the development and demonstration of new technologies on an industrial scale, providing a unique opportunity for manufacturers to develop new and innovative processes and technologies in a low risk environment.

Theorem Managing Director Stuart Thurlby, pictured here with MTC Chief Executive Clive Hickman said “We are delighted to be joining MTC and we look forward to being active members at this excellent facility. We will be pleased to contribute our expertise to appropriate projects and look forward to working with the other members of the MTC to improve British manufacturing skills and processes.

Clive Hickman added “We are pleased to welcome new members Theorem Solutions to the MTC and extremely proud to be associated with them as leaders in the field of engineering data services and solutions. I have high hopes for what we will achieve as a partnership.

The COE 2012 Annual PLM Conference is THE event that the users of Dassault Systèmes' solutions won't miss for sure! From April 22, 2012 to April 25, 2012 at Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino Las Vegas, NV Las Vegas, our users will receive the caliber of user-driven technical education, hands-on training opportunities and access to most accomplished professionals working with Dassault Systèmes products across industries and job roles.  

Have a look at the detailed program of sessions and also the list of exhibitors. Since it is a user-centric event, you'll have the chance to hear from several of our customers: Cessna Aircraft, Hydro-Québec, Johnson Controls, Purdue University, Bell Helicopter, and many others...  Of course, Dassault Systèmes' executives and experts will be there too. So, don't forget to register now!

The Technifair is the great place to meet some of the PLM MarketPlace partners, discover their solutions and ask questions to their experts: AMD, CD-adapco, CENIT, DPS, Elysium, ICAM, IGE+XAO and Theorem Solutions. Some of our resellers will be there too: Adaptive Corporation, Idex Solutions, Mecanica Solutions, RAND North America, and Tata Technologies.

Hope you'll enjoy the COE 2012 Conference. And this time, what happens in Vegas won't stay in Vegas: don't hesitate to share your feedback from 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."
