Data Center Presentation at ASME in Texas

Hello Everyone

This is a bit of a follow up to my previous blog about the FloVENT analysis of the Mentor Graphics Data Centers in Wilsonville, OR and Shannon, Ireland. 

http://www.mentor.com/products/mechanical/blog/post/mentor-graphics-data-center-design-using-cfd-modeling-fc6dbfc3-ec40-431a-8628-67375c2e946a

Well the one in Shannon, Ireland has been online for a while now, and our Wilsonville, OR data center is scheduled to come online December 2012.  Of course, it will take some time to start shifting equipment and IT load to the new data center from the smaller sites across the US.  But, within a short amount of time we will hopefully have some real data to compare to the simulation results FloVENT had provided us.  To me, working for a software company, in the mechanical analysis department, getting real data to compare simulation results to is the hardest thing.  Any experimental data I see is from customers, and is always proprietary.  This is one time where the experimental data is ours, so I think it is exciting to be able to bring our design and analysis full circle by seeing some real world results.  It should make for some good blogs/papers/articles in the future, so stay tuned.

Related to this data center project, recently I was asked to present at the ASME chapter in Dallas Texas, and the vice chair thought Data Centers design would be a good topic.  Luckily I had my presentation from Semitherm on our data center design, so I have plenty of material to talk about on this.  If you live in the Dallas area and are a ASME member, come check out my talk.

The  talk is next week, on Tuesday January 8th, in Plano Texas (3115 W. Parker Rd, Ste 400).  The meeting starts at 5:30 pm and my presentation is scheduled to start at 7 pm. 

I hope to see you there!

Travis MikjaniecTravis Mikjaniec achieved his Masters Degree in Aerospace Engineering from Carleton University in 2006, with a research focus on rotorcraft aerodynamics and aeroelasticity. Travis has spent the last 5 years working for Mentor Graphics Corporation, Mechanical Analysis Division (formerly Flomerics Ltd) specializing in the application of CFD to the design of electronics equipment. Prior to this he worked for the National Research Council of Canada's (NRC) Institute for Aerospace Research (IAR) Flight Research Laboratory in a role that focused on flight tests. Before that he worked at the NRC's IAR Aeroacoustic and Structural Dynamics Laboratory in a role that forcused on experimental testing of smart structures. Currently, Travis is a Thermal Engineer in the engineering team of the Mechanical Analysis Division, training and supporting the user base to enhance the accessibility of thermal analysis to engineering designer. Over this time he has gained experience, not only in the use of software, but also of the general design processes and the best way to apply the CFD techniques to the real world problems encountered by engineers’ everyday.
