Comparing CFD Software - STAR-CCM+ and Fluent
Posted Monday August 12 at 5:3pm
Batman versus Superman, Magic versus Bird, Yankees versus Red Sox, Microsoft versus Apple, Ferrari versus Lamborghini, Coke versus Pepsi… you get the point. The world is full of great rivalries at the top tiers of competition. It is no different in the world of CFD simulation where Fluent and STAR-CCM+, and before that STAR-CD, have been battling for market leadership for over 20 years.
A new Resolved Analytics blog post compares the software offerings head-to-head.
Best Practices for Running CFD Solvers Using AWS
Posted Monday August 5 at 6:53pm
Using HPC (high performance computing) to solve Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) challenges has become common practice. As the growth from HPC workstation to supercomputer has slowed over the last decade or two, compute clusters have increasingly taken the place of single, big SMP (shared memory processing) supercomputers, and have become the 'new normal'. Another, more recent innovation, the cloud, has also enabled dramatic growth in total throughput.
This Amazon Web Services blog post highlights best practices for setting up an AWS HPC instance for running CFD (ANSYS Fluent in particular).

HONDA Testifies a Major Breakthrough in Meshing Speed with NUMECA’s AutoSeal and HEXPRESS™/Hybrid
Posted Monday July 29 at 5:13pm
I'm sure you have heard it before, "80% of the time spent on CFD simulation for aerodynamics is used just for preparing the set-up of the case". Typical challenges in the simulation preparation process are still: poor quality of the available CAD, resulting in dirty geometries containing holes and cavities, complex geometries, resulting in a large amount of manual input to create a quality mesh, and difficulty to quickly create design alternatives for iterative testing.
