CD-adapco announces TLG Aerospace its 2012 Calendar Competition Winner!

After a very competitive contest, CD-adapco is pleased to announce Matt Knapp of TLG Aerospace as the winner of the 2012 CAE Post Processing Contest for his image of NASA X-34 Hypersonic Re-Entry Simulation. Knapp submitted the image which shows off a high angle of attack re-entry simulation of the NASA X-34 with adaptive meshing for off-body shock capture.

For the sixth year running, the competition has given users of CD-adapco software the chance to showcase their post-processing skills by producing striking images of their work. In winning the competition, and claiming an Apple iPad2 as his prize, Knapp beat off tough competition from companies such as Volvo, RWDI, Technique Bureau Company, Behr, InDesA, and GM Powertrain.

The 2012 competition was the most difficult to judge, explains CD-adapco's VP of Marketing, David Vaughn:

"Post processing CAE results is no longer just about getting numbers from a simulation, but also about being able to engage and inform colleagues from other disciplines about just how effective an analysis was. The quality of this year’s entries has once again impressed everyone at CD-adapco and has shown just how skillful our users are in effectively deploying simulation across a huge range of different applications. With over 100 entries to choose from, all of an exceedingly high standard, selecting a winner was extremely difficult and is a reflection of both the high levels of skill shown by our users and of the versatility of STAR-CCM+.”
