Researchers at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Argonne National Laboratory are partnering with Convergent Science, Inc. (CSI), to speed up a key piece of modeling and simulation software to ensure those cycles are used as effectively as possible, reducing product development time and resulting in better engines and savings for consumers. The scale of the speed gains were recently demonstrated when researchers ran the largest engine simulation to date on more than 4,000 computer cores. The research is part of Argonne’s Virtual Engine Research Institute and Fuels Initiative (VERIFI), which is working with CSI to optimize the company’s CONVERGE code, …
Wobble: it’s not the most scientific term to emerge from the field of mechanical engineering but it describes perfectly a particularly important event that no other word can. Important because it’s the phenomenon that, to a large degree, helps explain the minute variations between the cycles of an IC engine that have bedeviled engineers for years. Granted, one needs a huge x-ray machine and the world’s fifth-largest supercomputer (see Processing power) to witness it in detail, and then calculate and model its effects on the complex and explosive world of an injection-fed combustion chamber, but doing so gives a much …

2014 was a landmark year for Convergent Science, Inc. (CSI). As we continue to gain market share, CSI has expanded its team to ensure that our clients receive the same high level of support to which they are accustomed. After several years of continued growth we have reached the 50-employee milestone.
In the swirling, churning fireball at the heart of every internal combustion engine, complexity reigns supreme.
You can learn a lot about the inner working of an engine from physical tests — how it heats up, how it cools down, how it behaves during acceleration, and so on.
Convergent Science, Inc. and IFP Energies nouvelles are pleased to announce a strategic and technology partnership to further develop CONVERGE CFD. This partnership will look to jointly implement both in-cylinder as well as aftertreatment models in to CONVERGE CFD.
As previously announced at the CONVERGE User Group Meeting 2014, Convergent Science, Inc. (CSI) has acquired the majority shares in Ignite3d Engineering GmbH and renamed the company Convergent Science GmbH (CSG). CSG’s management includes Rainer Rothbauer, former owner of Ignite3d, as the General Manager.
On November 13th, 2014 in Yokohoma, Japan, IDAJ will host a “CONVERGE Conference Day” highlighting CONVERGE’s unique meshing process and its impressive placement in Japanese market.
On November 12th and 13th, VERIFI (Virtual Engine Research Institute and Fuels Initiative) will host a workshop (sponsored by Convergent Science and Cray) that focuses on using high-performance computing resources to perform high-fidelity internal combustion engine simulations with expanded boundaries (multi-cylinder) and higher spatial resolution (finer grid).
