Fluid Dynamics Solution
Predict real world performance using CFD-focused multiphysics
Since the real-world performance of your product depends on how it interacts with fluids, either gases, liquids or a combination of both, you need to predict how those fluids behave, and to be able to turn their influence to your product’s advantage.
Simcenter provides industry leading computational fluid dynamics software that allows you to simulate almost any engineering problem that involves the fluids, structures and all of the associated physics.
Accurately representing the physical behavior of the different fluid and solid phases is key to capturing the real-world performance of your product. Simcenter offers a variety of both Eulerian and Lagrangian modeling capabilities to suit your simulation needs.
The discrete element method (DEM) can be used to simulate the motion of a large number of interacting discrete objects (particles), such as the granular flow of aggregates, food particles, metal powders, tablets and capsules, and wheat or grass. Simcenter is the first commercial engineering simulation tool to include a DEM capability that is fully coupled with numerical flow simulation.
Gain insight into the interactions between turbulent flow field and underlying chemistry of reacting flows. Simcenter helps you improve the trade-off between the performance and emissions of your device for different operating conditions.
Computational rheology is used to model non-Newtonian or viscoelastic materials in industrial problems. The rheology solver accurately resolves the dominant physics of complex rheological material flow and helps predict their behavior.
The computational fluid dynamics (CFD) capability in Simcenter offers an efficient and accurate set of fluid dynamics models and solvers with excellent parallel performance and scalability. It provides a solid foundation for multidisciplinary design exploration.
Problems that involve multiple moving and interacting components can be easily simulated using overset meshing, mesh morphing, or a combination of both. The moving mesh capabilities can also be used for parametric studies and for steady or unsteady simulations, providing an easy way to reposition or replace objects to study multiple design configurations.
