Daat Research Corp. has added multiple processor capabilities to boost the calculating speed of its CFD thermal and flow analysis software, Coolit.
When installed into a multiple processor system, Coolit automatically recognizes the number of processors and parallelizes the computation accordingly. The result is a significant speed increase that ranges from a minimum of 1.5 times to almost double for dual processors. For more processors, speed gains are even greater.
This latest Coolit release, version 4.50, also incorporates numerous new features that aid the model building process and increase modeling accuracy. Most significant is the addition of new shapes to the component library. Tetrahedron, pyramid and spherical cap components join the previously released triangular prism components to make possible more complex shapes and more accurate geometries.
Other changes in the new release included greater editing flexibility, a wider range of component characteristics, and customizable projections in panel views. Coolit v.4.50 also implements a new advanced model for porous media. The new model is a significant improvement over the standard Brinkman model, which is used in most commercial CFD programs.
Coolit v.4.50 operates on all Windows-based platforms: Windows 95,98,2000,XP and NT. More information on Daat and Coolit can be found on the Daat web site.
