News SmartCAE Srl, a leader in providing Computer-Aided Engineering (CAE) software has announced their new product, Smart|Coupling, a multidisciplinary data transfer tool.

Smart|Coupling is a program for coupling and linking of mathematical models coming from different disciplines, thus allowing a seamless multiphysics interaction. In fact, different CAE disciplines need specific modelling strategies by means of grid shape, grid density, system units, and often it is not possible to use one and the same model for different simulations.

Smart|Coupling enables coupling of models with different discretization (grids, coordinate systems, units). The coupling can be done manually or half-automatically. Smart|Coupling can also interpolate values in nodes or elements/cells, transferring results from one to another grid.

Its tools for grid matching and data interpolation give analysts the possibility of quickly transferring data and results between different CAE tools, even on heterogeneous OS platform (e.g. transfer a wall pressure field form Fluent on UNIX to Nastran on Windows).

Fluid-Structure Interaction (FSI)
Smart|Coupling offers special support for FSI analysis, by means of specific interfaces, tools and wizards for an easy and reliable bi-directional data transfer between CFD and FEA models. Smart|Coupling supports the major CFD and FEA codes in the market:

  • CFD: Fluent, StarCD, CFX,
  • FEA: Nastran, Ansys, Abaqus, I-Deas

Smart|Coupling can easily dialog with your home-made CFD or FEA code through specific custom interfaces. For a demonstration of how Smart|Coupling can solve your analysis problems contact SmartCAE srl at +39.0574.404642,
