"How to Survive" with CFD

Posted by Mark Decker on Sep 13, 2018 10:57:23 AM

I have been catching up on episodes of The Last Alaskans and unlike other reality shows, the only drama in this one is man’s struggle to survive in a very hostile environment.  I was impressed with how they stay in small cabins during the winter (the camera crew stays in tents) when the temperatures get down to -30F and even lower.

Simulation Success: Safelumin

Posted by SimulationNation on Feb 19, 2018 10:40:00 AM

 

Safelumin has developed an LED emergency light that is packaged in the form of a regular shaped light bulb. The Safelumin bulb is equipped with a rechargeable lithium-ion battery that is rated to provide up to 3 hours of emergency light during a power outage. Safelumin’s patented power sensing technology is smart and knows the difference between purposely turning off the light switch and suffering a power failure.

Building Simulation: Analyzing Performance Without Breaking Ground… or a Sweat

Posted by hagermancompany on Apr 12, 2017 3:56:50 PM

Today’s architects and engineers can now analyze building performance early in the design stage thanks to 3D building performance simulation and finite element analysis.

Simulation tools allow them to effectively predict building energy performance, sustainability, and green features such as daylighting, as well as performance attributes such as airflow for heating and cooling needs, including computational fluid dynamics for buildings (such as data centers that require constant cooling). Thanks to the complexity of today’s building projects, simulation is becoming de rigueur for government clients and even private owners whose buildings must perform as advertised. AEC firms are being required to provide simulation proof that the design will work and that the energy consumption meets certain requirements.
