Free Surface Flow and More in Symscape's Caedium
Posted Fri August 03, 2012 @04:58PM
Print version Email story Tweet story
News The latest release of Caedium (v4.0) from Symscape can perform CFD simulations for free surfaces, such as those that form between water and air around a ship's hull.

The new version of Caedium also contains an extensive array of other enhancements that will help you efficiently simulate more physically realistic phenomena.

Volume of Fluid (VOF)
The new multiphase capability in Caedium uses a VOF solver to simulate the interaction between 2 immiscible fluids and the free surface between them. Applications for which VOF is well suited include:
  • Maritime flows, e.g., the combined water and air flow around a ship's hull
  • Environmental water flow, e.g,. tank filling, wastewater management, spillways, weirs

More Physics

  • Simulate rotating machinery (e.g., mixers) with Moving Reference Frames (MRF)
  • Simulate porous media
  • Simulate fans at boundaries and embedded within a flow domain
  • Reduce simulation time and memory requirements with the cyclic boundary condition

Improved Performance

  • Run larger simulations on Mac OS X with a 64-bit version of Caedium
  • Turn simulations around faster with more aggressive default parallel preferences
  • Use Windows HPC Scheduler services in Azure without an on-premise installation of Windows HPC Server

Better Visualization

  • Create stunning visuals with an extensive array of animated particles that includes arrows and cones
  • Visualize wall heat flux and density fields when supported by a solver

Miscellaneous

  • Enjoy native language translations of Caedium in English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese (Brazil), and Spanish
  • Exchange membrane flow results with ixForten 4000
