By leveraging our unique, inherently transient Lattice Boltzmann-based physics PowerFLOW CFD solution performs simulations that accurately predict real world conditions. Using the PowerFLOW suite, engineers evaluate product performance early in the design process prior to any prototype being built — when the impact of change is most significant for design and budgets. PowerFLOW imports fully complex model geometry and accurately and efficiently performs aerodynamic, aeroacoustic and thermal management simulations.
High fidelity transient Lattice Boltzmann based solution, accurate across most flow regimes (laminar to transonic) to solve the most complex CFD design problems in Transportation & Mobility and Aerospace & Defense.
Automated domain discretization and turbulence modeling with wall treatment eliminates the need for manual volume meshing and boundary layer meshing.
Confidently run PowerFLOW simulations using large number of compute cores on common High Performance Computing (HPC) platforms.
Utilize moving geometries and Local Reference Frames (LRF), particle modeling, heat exchanger modeling, porous media with flow, thermal and acoustic effects; Realistic Wind for on-road turbulent wind conditions to simulate real world effects.
Simulate conjugate heat transfer problems with surface and volume conduction, thermal radiation and human thermal using built-in variable interval coupling with PowerTHERM.
Simulate effect of multiple heat exchangers for underhood thermal using coupled PowerCOOL.
Use standardized Application Templates to automate pre & post processing for common applications and customize for specific engineering environments.
Create and import geometry, define initial & boundary conditions and choose measurements to record during simulation with this application. The intuitive, fast interface application provides an entirely automated fluid grid generation solution.
PowerFLOW can simulate true roating geometry to optimize performance and noise in systems, such as: wheel aerodynamics, brakes, HVAC systems, cooling fans and more.
PowerFLOW suite has the ability to seamlessly integrate PowerTHERM surface termperature & heat fluxes technologies PowerACOUSTICS aeroacousitc noise technologies to existing simulated designs.
The digital wind tunnel model includes static and moving ground plane modeling and boundary layer suction point to match that of real-life experimental wind tunnels.
Upon simulation completion, PowerVIZ analyses results quickly and PowerINSIGHT automates results analysis.
Once a surface mesh model is prepared, the same model may be used to perform additional simulations. Setup, grid generation, simulation and results analysis can be performed in less than a day.
PowerFLOW accurately simulates fluid flow design problems for numerous transportation industry sectors, including: Automotive, Commercial Vehicle, Off-Highway, Train, Motorsport, Motorcycle, Military Vehicle, Bus, Aerospace and others.
