simFlow 3.0 release

 

It is a great pleasure to announce that simFlow 3.0 has been released. This release takes CFD simulations in OpenFOAM® 3.0 and 3.0+ to the next level. Learn more by watching a very short video available here. Highlights include:

Refreshed user interface — clearer and even more intuitive interface design helps new users to find their way around the software and further facilitates the work of professionals

Extended geometry support — STEP, IGES, BREP and STL geometry formats can be directly imported into simFlow, and boundary conditions can be easily assigned to the selected faces without splitting the geometry

Convenient mesh generation — mesh generation has been divided into the following stages: base mesh, meshing, boundary layer, so that you can create the mesh step-by-step, adjusting the settings when necessary

New initial mesh shapes — a cylindrical shape of the initial mesh improves mesh quality when solving turbomachinery-related problems, while the wedge shape allows you to simulate only a periodic subsection of the studied geometry, thus reduce the simulation time

Airfoil mesh generator — this experimental feature allows you to create a high-quality 2D mesh around an airfoil with just a single-click, only a few inputs and airfoil coordinates are required

Advanced models — Solar Load Model enables simulation of the effect of solar radiation by calculating the solar load and taking into account geographical location and the day of a year; Detached Eddy Simulation (DES) turbulence model allows for better predictions in the detached flow regions

New boundary conditions — a bunch of newly implemented boundary conditions give you a number of possibilities, for example, a periodicAMI can be used to create an interface between rotating and stationary domains or a coupling between hexahedral and tetrahedral mesh parts

User-defined passive scalar equations — these equations make it possible to calculate quantities, which do not affect the fluid flow, for example: moisture content, pollutants transport in the atmosphere or temperature in incompressible flows

We invite you to download simFlow for Windows or Linux, and enjoy one of the most popular and comprehensive OpenFOAM GUIs. If you want to be up to date with the latest news about simFlow, please follow us on LinkedIn and Twitter.
