HvZ Computational Engineering
Hoitinga & van Zwieten (HvZ) Computational Engineering is a young consultancy company that specializes in the development of dedicated computer simulations for a range of physical processes, including (but not limited to) solid and fluid mechanical problems. Such tools are getting increasingly popular in various engineering applications, where adoption of computational analysis can offer substantial reduction in otherwise expensive and time consuming laborious testing.
17-05-2013: HvZ goes official
We are very happy to announce that today HvZ Computational Engineering was
officially founded. This marks the end of a rather long incubation period, in
which we have been steadily shifting things in place and laid the foundations to make
HvZ a success. Now that we can narrow our focus, expect to start seeing more
activity here in time to come.
PS. and seeing the very old news entry below, let us also celebrate that just over 1,5 years ago Wijnand sucessfully obtained his doctorate degree! --Gertjan
26-08-2011: Wijnand has a date to defend his thesis
On Monday November 14 Wijnand will defend his dissertation in the Aula of Delft University of Technology. The defense starts at 9:30 a.m. and everyone who is interested is welcome to witness this happening.
08-06-2011: HvZ and ASML agree on terms for a long-term project!
Today Hvz and ASML reached an agreement regarding a long-term on-site project, for which Wijnand will assist in the design and improvement of certain machine components.
07-06-2011: ASML, Mecal and HvZ discuss a possible cooperation
In a joint meeting of Hvz, Mecal, and ASML, we discussed methods to handle nonstandard convection-diffusion-type problems. HvZ presented a solution method that offers a significant accuracy improvement for the problems of interest. Mecal and HvZ now consider to combine their knowledge of numerical approximation methods and existing simulation software, and thereby improve their consultancy services to ASML. HvZ looks forward to this cooperation.
17-05-2011: HvZ website goes live!
01-05-2011: First day post-doc at TU Eindhoven
To extend our fields of expertise and consolidate our ties with academia, Gertjan today starts his post-doc at the Technical University of Eindhoven, where he will study the dynamics of micro-droplets using the Boundary Element Method (BEM).
22-04-2011: Visit to ASML
Together with ASML and Inviscid we discussed possible solutions to circumvent several limitations that exist in a commercial software tools. It involves a reformulation of standard model equations into a better form for the problems at hand.
22-03-2011: Final presentation at Innecs
Today HvZ presents the final results of the software tool for Innecs. Simulation results are in agreement with experimental data. Innecs is now ready to run their own simulations and analyse the results.
18-02-2011: First challenge
Today Innecs agreed to let HvZ do modeling work on a 250 kW gas turbine. The aim is to develop licence-free software that can simulate certain aspects of a gas turbines. This software tool enables Innecs to gain a better understanding of various components within their turbine.
