Naval Surface Warfare Center, West Bethesda, Maryland, USA -- www.dt.navy.mil
The Carderock Division
of the Naval Surface Warfare Center (NSWCCD) is the Navy's center of
excellence for ships and ship systems. They have been ANSWER users
since 2000, and use ANSWER for electronics cooling applications' simulations.
Demokritos National Center for Scientific Research, Athens, Greece -- ipta.demokritos.gr
The "Research Reactor
Laboratory" of Institute of Nuclear Technology & Radiation
Protection at "Demokritos" has been using ANSWER since 2001. The
Laboratory operates a 5 MW open pool research nuclear reactor which is
mainly used for irradiation purposes, material science applications
(neutron diffraction) and neutron activation analyses.
Thermal-hydraulic and neutronic calculations are performed for reactor
safety analyses. Also, modeling work on aerosol dynamics has recently
initiated, including analysis of aerosol flows using CFD.
IDOM Engineering and Architecture Consultants, Bilbao, Spain -- www.idom.es
IDOM has been using ANSWER in their consulting projects since 2000. They have done some exciting architectural analysis projects, including the Study of Wind Effects on the Tower of the Bilbao International Exhibition Centre,
as well as a similar study for the now-world-famous Marqués del Riscal
Winery in Bilbao, designed by world-renown architect Frank O. Gehry.
Another interesting project was the simulation of a mandrel used in
manufacturing of wind turbine blades' composite components. Heat transfer during the setting of composite was the main issue in this analysis.

has taught courses in both physics and engineering; mainly dealing with
fluid mechanics, applied aerodynamics and stability and control of
aircraft; propulsion; combustion; classical mechanics; quantum
mechanics; electromagnetic theory; lasers; and control of mechanical
systems. He has had a Ph.D. student work on ANSWER, and LES turbulence
model was incorporated into ANSWER at this time.
University of Adelaide, Department of Applied Mathematics, North Terrace, Adelaide, Australia -- www.adelaide.edu.au/ecms
Computational Fluid Mechanics Group at the University of Adelaide
consists of a collection of people within the Department of Applied
Mathematics at the University of Adelaide whose research interests lie
in the Field of Computational Fluid Mechanics.
