News AEA Technology has released new versions of their CFX-TASCflow and CFX-TurboGrid products and added a grid generation product dubbed CFX-Hexa.

CFX-TASCflow version 2.11, designed for analysis of mechanical engineering flows, includes a new user-customizable interface, a new solver monitor for tracking the solution progress, significant improvements to the transient analysis capabilities, new turbulence models including LES and a non-linear eddy viscosity model, and enhanced post processing.

CFX-TurboGrid is an interactive grid generation tool designed to ensure an accurate mesh in the blade passage of turbo-machines. The new version uses a variety of new features to speed up processing and improve functionality. These include a customizable application launcher, a new smoothing capability to increase the quality of meshes produced, a control for the parameterization of meridional space in geometries with a highly curved blade passage, and further increases in the speed of the post processor.

As part of a strengthening relationship with ICEM CFD Engineering, Inc., AEA Technology, has released CFX-Hexa, a parameterized top-down mesh generator for CFD applications. CFX-Hexa, based on the well-established ICEM CFD Hexa product, offers time and money savings to engineers by producing high-quality hexahedral grids in a fraction of the time associated with traditional methods.

CFX-Hexa features fast grid generation algorithms, patch-independent meshing, hanging node refinement, elliptic smoothing, simple geometry creation, a new multi-block smoother and enhanced STL/CAD repair. CFX-Hexa is initially launched as an integrated grid-generating option in CFX-TASCflow, CFX-4 and CFX-5.
