Engineering challenges are growing in size and complexity. These problems can often involve solving large coupled sets of equations depending on the physics being solved. Solving these large set of algebraic equations reliably is extremely complex and, if not done in an optimum manner, can be very time consuming. The CFdesign 2011 winter update features an optimized parallel, iterative matrix solver that interprets and adjusts complex mathematics, on the fly, which results in a two-fold speedup for multi core machines.

“Today’s engineering environment requires large models and multi-scenario design studies to be solved fast with a high degree of accuracy. Engineers are expected to significantly increase productivity and look to CFdesign to help meet this challenge,” explains Derrek Cooper, CFdesign Product Manager. “Automation tools on the front-end are vital to engineering productivity, but it is equally important to continuously harness cutting edge software programming methods and computing environments to drive, accurate solutions so that engineers can confidently do design exploration on the fly and make design studies an organic part of the design process.”

A major release of CFdesign is delivered annually each fall followed by three scheduled quarterly updates, a unique approach in the CAE industry that draws rave reviews from Engineers and managers alike. This consistent development process assures that CFdesign remains compatible and can take advantage of the latest release of each CAD tool, Microsoft Windows, and new hardware advancements.
