The Fr@meworker 2011
Welcome to the November edition of our newsletter Fr@meworker. It features latest facts about our engineering software FRIENDSHIP-Framework as well as information about current activities of FRIENDSHIP SYSTEMS.
New Functionality: Release 2.3
FRIENDSHIP SYSTEMS recently released version 2.3 of the CAE-software FRIENDSHIP-Framework. The large set of new functionality was strongly driven by the excellent input of our users and our ongoing research projects. Read more.
Insight the FRIENDSHIP-Framework: STL
CAD interfaces towards mesh generators quite often create problems if one has to rely on exchange formats like IGES, Parasolid or similar, especially if the number of individual surface patches is high, like a typical IGES export from NAPA. Within the research project FORM-PRO and a number of in-house activities new triangulation methods have been implemented and made available to our users in release 2.3. Read more.
Projects: Butterfly Valve Optimization
The Naval Architecture & Ocean Engineering (NAOE) department of Hochschule Bremen Germany and the NAOE Ship Design & Production Laboratory (SDPL) of Pusan National University Korea (PNU) are very active users of the FRIENDSHIP-Framework and customers of FRIENDSHIP SYSTEMS, too. Two Ph.D. students of SDPL visited the HS Bremen and performed a butterfly valve optimization project in January 2011. Read more.
R&D: Project BEST+ Proves Holistic Design Approach
The prime interest of utilizing the FRIENDSHIP-Framework has been shape design and optimization in hydro- and aerodynamics. Functional surfaces such as ship hulls, propellers, compressors, volutes and pipes are developed by simulation-driven design, leading to substantial improvements in both product quality and process speed. Naturally, an intriguing further step is to investigate several multi-disciplinary objectives at the same time. Read more.
The Team: Sailing Trip in Brandenburg
This year’s summer outing brought the team of FRIENDSHIP SYSTEMS to the Wolziger lake in Kolberg, a village southeast of Berlin. Read more.
In the last quarter of this year, FRIENDSHIP SYSTEMS will be present at the following events. Read more.
