Dear Virtuosity readers, I want to unapologetically hijack the normal news and exciting feature information that you are accustomed to reading about in the world of Custom IC Design blogs to eagerly let you know about Cadence’s recent ventures into the world of Computational Fluid Dynamics.
Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) is an aspect of multiphysics system analysis that uses numerical analysis to simulate the interaction of fluids or fluidic motion on and within bodies. As modern electronic designs are becoming complicated, having an understanding of its performance in real world is crucial. Optimizing airflow or estimating performance under different environmental conditions is one of the key aspects of modern electronic designs. This is why CFD has emerged as an essential technology across numerous industries such as, marine, aerospace, automobile, turbomachinery, and electronics design. Recognizing this need, Cadence has significantly broadened its system analysis portfolio, particularly in the area of Computational Fluid Dynamics. The acquisitions of NUMECA and Pointwise have specifically caught peoples’ imaginations both inside and outside of the organization.
With so much happening on the CFD front, it can be hard to keep up to date with the CFD news, events, and posts on social media. That's why we are presenting to you a summary of the top news and blogs in Cadence CFD.
So, let’s get into it!
For all CFD enthusiasts there were some great opportunities to learn about CFD through a series of webinars. Here is the complete list of webinars in case you want to see the recordings:
VALIDATION OF CFD RESULTS ON A POINTWISE® MESH FOR THE POTSDAM MARINE PROPELLER CASE on June 15
HIGHER PERFORMANCE AND LONGER LIFE FOR TURBOMACHINERY THROUGH RETROFITTING OPTIMIZATION on June 22
BOOST YOUR PRODUCTIVITY WITH THE LATEST VERSION OF OMNISTM on June 23
FAST AND RELIABLE CFD SIMULATION OF A PLATE COUNTERFLOW HEAT EXCHANGER on June 24
I am sure after checking out those informative webinars, you would want to know more about our latest CFD offerings. Here's a list of our recent CFD product releases:
The Pointwise Version 18.4 is a bug fix release that has feature updates related to Glyph scripting for surface meshes. To know more about this release, visit our blog, Pointwise V18.4 R4 Now Available for Download and Production Use.
You can also download the V18.4 R4 version, the related tutorial workbook files, and the Glyph scripting documentation from www.pointwise.com/downloads.
The newest version of the Omnis simulation environment has brought a new discrete particle solver, a surface-to-volume mesh module, and more than 100 other new features that will simplify your workflows, boost your productivity, and extend the scope of your simulations. To learn about these new features check out our blog New Release - Omnis Version 5.1 Is Out Now!
You can read up on all the amazing things you can accomplish using Omnis 5.1 at https://www.numeca.com/omnis.
While these new advances, usability enhancements, and events kept us busy, we tried to keep you updated on all things CFD through our blog posts. Here's a complete list of the CFD blogs that were published last month:
John Chawner has been regular with his weekly CFD posts through his blog series, This Week in CFD. You can get a week-by-week summary of the CFD news and events covered by John by clicking the links below:
This blog has Anne-Marie Schelkens talking about how DAMEN, in partnership with NUMECA, developed a CFD methodology to prove that a vessel has sufficient transversal stability to resist over rolling in severe side winds.
In this blog, John Chawner presents an update on AIAA's CFD Vision 2030 roadmap, along with the 2020 status, progress, and challenges.
In this blog, Anne-Marie Schelkens talks about how Pipistrel used Omnis/Open solvers and the Omnis/Hexpress grid generator for the aerodynamic simulation of DEP systems and the validation of low-noise technologies.
You now have an opportunity to receive our Pointwise Meshing Foundations course for free. All you have to do is to sign up for a trial at https://info.pointwise.com/pointwise-trial. If you qualify for the free course, you will get a chance to work with our engineers and learn from the experts on how to leverage Pointwise to improve your CFD process.
We will end this blog with a quote from John Chawner "Not since the early stages of my career when I was involved in the ground-up development of the Gridgen meshing software have I seen as much ‘green field’ potential as I see in the Cadence CFD team including both NUMECA and Pointwise. I look forward to seeing what we accomplish together in the coming months and years."
I hope this blog piqued your interest in CFD!
