Dr. Richard Johns to lead CD-adapco's Internal Combustion Engine Team.

New York and London. March 30, 2011

CD-adapco  announced today  the formation of a new Internal Combustion Engine Team, to be  led by Dr. Richard Johns, a globally recognized expert in bringing advanced  automotive engine CFD to industry for over 35 years. In his new role as Vice  President of the Internal Combustion Engine Team, Richard will be in overall control  of all aspects of CD-adapco’s <strong>engine simulation technology</strong>, including STAR-CD  v4 solver development, pre and post processing development, ICE related  technical support, testing and project management

Dr. Richard Johns, CD-adapco

Dr.  Johns joined Perkins Engines in 1969 as a student and, after graduating in 1973  with a degree in mechanical engineering, joined their research department.  After 2 years of developing cycle simulation and thermal analysis software,  Perkins supported his PhD study at Imperial College under Prof. David Gosman in  engine CFD. During his 5 years at Imperial College he developed computational  methods for the flow in diesel engine cylinders and the first discrete droplet spray  model applied to in-cylinder flows. He was awarded his PhD in 1980 for this  work. He subsequently joined AVL in Graz, Austria where he established the CFD  software group and was also responsible for the laser diagnostics used for  validation of the computations. In 1987 he joined Ricardo where, again, he  established a CFD software group and was subsequently responsible for both the  commercial software business and engineering CAE applications. He was appointed  President of Ricardo Software in 1995 and, in 1998, to the Board of Ricardo  Consulting Engineers Ltd. He joined CD-adapco in 2005 as Director for the  Automotive Industry, a position that he will now relinquish for his new role.

Whether  it's a new fuel, new combustion model or a new lightweight material, realistic  simulation is an integral tool in successfully bringing new technologies to  market,&rdquo; said Dr. Richard Johns. &ldquo;CD-adapco &nbsp;is the long-time leading  provider of CFD technology to the automotive industry, with over two decades of  intake-to-tailpipe industrial know-how. In this new role, I am excited to be  able to play a pivotal role in extending CD-adapco&rsquo;s lead in this market, and I  am fully dedicated to helping our customers to meet all of the challenges that  ICE simulation has to offer.
