Fluids Simulations to Improve Real-World Performance
What’s new in 2022
New GPU features:
Probes are now available.
Solver Surface Integrals are available with “Sum” and “Average” type
*Velocity and VOF fields only
Contact angle hysteresis is now available in Phase Field solver
Isotropic and anisotropic porous media is available for fixed geometries
Turbulence model selection is now available in GPU with Smagorinsky and WALE turbulence models
Support for new boundary conditions: convective outlet, mass flow inlet and outlet, and porous wall inlet (phase field only)
Linux version support is now upgraded to CentOS 7. This means the minimum required CentOS/RHEL version is 7 or greater. Upgrade of your Linux distribution may be required.
The function insidegeometry() is now supported in GPU.
The Water Channel has been redesigned for GPU for Free Surface and Multiphase Particle-Based tracking solvers and includes the following new inputs: Free surface level, Current velocity, Wave inlet: Disabled/Regular Linear Theory (Airy) is included with the wave length and wave height inputs
GPU simulations, also available in Preferences > Engine.
New option -m or –maxcore to limit the number of GPU Streaming Multiprocessors SM’s Streamline Multiprocessors
CATpart and CATproduct importation now allows to import visualization geometries
The Solver Surface/Volume Integrals now support immersed-boundary geometries and geometries with disabled boundary conditions
Solid geometries in Conjugate heat transfer can now be used as the internal domain bounding geometry
Keyframes are saved when using the "Save as" function
Animated geometries are now supported as Post-Processing shapes even with loaded data
Moving porous media pressure drop has been improved now following correctly the Darcy-Ergun law
Support for new SIMULIA Unified licenses (SIMUNIT) that allow running any SIMULIA products with the same license: Tokens and Credits
Tokens: allocated during use and released after use.
Credits: consumed during the use.
New License section in the Preferences allows switching to different license servers (DSLS, RLM) and license types (XFlow Tokens, Universal License Tokens, Unified License Credits).
Moving porous media are now supported.
Stability parameter have been introduced with three output modes:
Automatic: outputs all information when stability parameter >1.
Basic: outputs basic information when stability parameter >1, may be slightly faster than Automatic.
Off: not computed, may be faster in some cases.
Rotational speed law for a body can be input in RPM for enforced motions.
