What's New |
FRIENDSHIP-Framework 3.0 is a major release with a redesigned interface that features many new tools which enhance ease-of-use and streamline your workflow. The new software connector window features easy template processing, intuitive drag-and-drop of exchange data with external CFD codes, and support of additional formats such as OpenFOAM results, VTK, Tecplot, and EnSight Gold. FRIENDSHIP-Framework interfaces with most commercial and in-house CFD codes including: STAR-CCM+, ANSYS/Fluent/CFX, NUMECA products, OpenFOAM, ICON FOAMpro, SHIPFLOW and many more.
Also available in version 3.0, the all new post-processing capability allows users to load 3D field data from their CFD simulations, as well as integrated data, in order to intelligently compare the variants in detail. This allows Engineers to not only identify the best designs quickly, but also to study the trade-offs and merits of the various designs with regard to multiple objectives. Furthermore it provides a deeper understanding of the influence of the design variables and greater insight into the product’s behavior.
The smart CAD modeler allows creation of fully parametric designs, focusing on the most relevant parameters for the automated variation and optimization studies of CFD-centric workflows. The new Sweep Surface and Sweep Transformation makes it even easier to create complex internal flow geometries such as ducts, diffusers, and manifolds.
FRIENDSHIP-Framework is used worldwide by many of the world’s leading engineering firms in the maritime and mechanical industries, including: MTU, KSB, Sumitomo Heavy Industries, DSME, Voith, and SDARI. It is used for the flow related optimization of ship hulls, turbomachinery components, internal ducts, engine components, aerodynamic bodies, amongst others.
