News Fluent has released the latest version of their flagship CFD software. FLUENT 6.0 features industry firsts and usability enhancements. The new offering, which is based on Fluent's time-tested unstructured CFD platform, has notable leaps forward in the modeling of multiphase, rotating equipment, and combustion problems.

Fluent's beta test program has ensured that each new capability has been tested on a real-world industrial problem. The extensive testing performed by Fluent and their beta testers reduces the amount of validation necessary for adopters of the new code.

A new Eulerian granular model is available in FLUENT 6.0. This capability is necessary to correctly predict the behavior of solids in multiphase flows. The formulation includes the solids pressure and can accurately describe transitions in the solids phase as the packing limit is reached. The Eulerian granular model is intended for applications such as fluidized beds, risers, solids suspension, and sedimentation.

Other enhancements include dynamic load balancing for parallel simulations, new spray models including both primary and secondary atomization, VRML output, and turbo-specific post-processing on unstructured grids.

The new software also debuts moving/deforming mesh for analysis of in-cylinder engine performance as a beta capability.
