SIMULIA PowerFLOW 2022 contains the following major enhancements and new features:
Hierarchical Partitions, which is a major revamp of partitions and rules, now allows for hierarchy of segments to align better with CAD-based part hierarchies and enables simplification and automation. All applications in the PowerFLOW product suite, including PowerACOUSTICS, support hierarchical partitions, using a standardized selection widget to select segments within a hierarchical partition.
The PowerFLOW Single GPU Solver for low-subsonic isothermal simulations without rotating reference frames runs on single NVIDIA GPUs. It provides a cost-effective and high-performance solution for workflows such as concept aerodynamics and HVAC aeroacoustics.
PowerDELTA 2022 contains enhancements to the Operations Template, including the Delete & Patch operation, and additional mesh diagnostics measures for face selection.
PowerVIZ introduces Unified Slice, which is a single high-performance slice feature that replaces axis-aligned slices and movable slices.
PowerVIZ supports the calculation of the uniformity index of velocity and scalar quantities on axis- aligned planes, which is useful for HVAC workflows with non-uniform flow distribution.
PowerINSIGHT now supports parallel content generation, which accelerates content generation with transient content templates for simulations containing large numbers of frames.
DesignGUIDE introduces filtering of Pareto graphs from run tables, using bounds on response and design variables, which makes it easy to focus on promising areas of the design space.
