Simply 'Add-In' CFD to CATIA V5
Posted Wed April 14, 2004 @09:42AM
Print version Email story Tweet story
News The CD adapco Group has announced that it has become a Spatial CAA V5 Adopter and will create two new CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) 'add-ins', STAR-CAT5 and Comet-CAT5, designed to bring the benefit of advanced CFD technology to users of CATIA V5.

Michael Dickens, CD adapco Group's Director of Business Development explains: "We have developed tightly integrated CFD 'ad-ins' that facilitate parametric design studies through enhanced automation and bi-directional associativity between CAD and CFD models. We are particularly interested in delivering this technology to CATIA V5 users since market research has placed this environment as the preferred choice among our clients as their CAD system for the future."

Keith Mountain, Vice President of Marketing, for Spatial adds, “We are pleased to have CD adapco Group as a CAA V5 Adopter. Their experience in the CFD arena is a welcome addition to the increasing number of solutions available to the CATIA V5 user community.”

Comet-CAT5 for design engineers

Comet-CAT5 is intended for design engineers who need to do quick upfront studies in their design process using CATIA V5. Simple flows can be easily modeled using the built-in Comet CFD solver. Modern and unique automatic polyhedral mesh generation means models can be set up very quickly and fast solutions achieved. Users can quickly assess different what-if design scenarios.

STAR-CAT5 for advanced CFD

STAR-CAT5 is intended for engineers needing to extend their flow analysis to include highly complex physics directly within the CATIA V5 environment. It offers complete compatibility with the leading CFD solution STAR-CD, allowing highly complex physics to be modeled directly. The same breadth of flow and heat and mass transfer regimes can be handled as Comet-CAT5, together with chemical reaction and combustion, multiphase and multiphysics capabilities.

Michael Dickens adds "The advantage of both add-ins is that they enable rapid high quality meshing, model setup, solution and result evaluation to be completely integrated within the CATIA V5 environment. Engineers who are familiar with CAD will therefore find adding CFD to existing models easy and intuitive, since boundary conditions and fluid properties are simply entered within the familiar CATIA V5 GUI environment."
