Fluent Inc. has announced the release of POLYFLOW 3.9. This software, created to aid in the simulation of laminar flows through dies and molds during such processes as extrusion, blow molding, glass forming, and fiber spinning, features new enhancements that help simplify and automate much of the user's work, while further extending the capabilities of the software.
This new release is based on five major pillars: adaptive meshing, non-conformal meshing, enhancements and extension of viscoelastic models, elasticity-based remeshing, and a new user-friendly environment.
Adaptive and non-conformal meshing help the user to build an accurate computer model of the equipment design to be simulated, particularly for complex, real-world models, such as dies for window profiles and rubber seals, and coextrusion or fiber spinning equipment.
The advanced viscoelastic modeling capability in POLYFLOW 3.9 widens the realm of possibility for modeling tricky viscoelastic flows. Elasticity-based remeshing capabilities provide further flexibility in the modeling of flows, which deform in three dimensions.
The new POLYMAN user environment is a Windows-like interface that consolidates all the tools in the POLYFLOW suite for easy access.
POLYFLOW 3.9 is available on UNIX and NT platforms.
