News ESI Group, a pioneer and world-leading supplier of digital simulation software for prototyping and manufacturing processes, announced today its partnership with Optimal Solutions Software to reduce the time required for complex design studies.

With the combination of ESI Group’s CFD-ACE+ computational fluid dynamics (CFD) solution and Optimal Solutions Software’s SculptorTM, the world’s leading Computational-Aided Engineering (CAE) real-time design deformation technology, users benefit from the ideal solution to improve productivity and overall speed.

ESI Group’s proven solution CFD-VisCART allows users to quickly and easily mesh complex geometry. This automated, easy to use meshing solution can generate a mesh for a complete car overnight compared to days or weeks using other tools. As design studies are evaluated, Sculptor is then used to quickly deform the mesh in real-time for subsequent runs. This is all completed without having to go back to the CAD model or do any additional re-meshing. The benefit to the end-users is the potential for them to save weeks or even months in a typical automotive aerodynamics analysis for a new car program.

“The partnership with Optimal Solutions Software further solidifies ESI Group’s value proposition of reducing the total time required to execute complex design studies”, said Joseph Strelow, Director of Design and Analysis Simulation for ESI Group. He added: “The solution begins when a CAD model is delivered and finishes when a final design is approved. We’re now able to assist in reducing development times by up to 30% due to recent advances in ESI’s CFD-VisCART and CFD-ACE+ Multiphysics products. Combining these with Sculptor’s morphing technology provides our customers with an even more powerful solution.”

“Our customers are continuously searching for better tools to help them improve their designs for maximum performance. Using traditional tools and techniques for this ongoing improvement effort requires more and more time which translates to more money,” stated John Jenkins, VP Sales & Marketing for Optimal Solutions Software. “This partnership gives our customers a powerful CAE solver linked to a revolutionary deformer/optimizer so that they can quickly and easily improve their designs without the increase in time and money required in the past. Our customers are saving tens of thousands of dollars while coming up with better designs in less than 25% of the time that it would have taken them using their old design improvement approaches.”
