Your CFD solution should understand and support what is needed to meet the challenges for accurate, effective, and on-time CFD analysis.
Mesh creation can take up to 80% of the analysis process. Engineers need ways to generate the accurate, detailed meshes quickly to free up time for CFD analysis and optimization.
Different applications, from Integrated circuits to large-scale CFD simulations, require specialized algorithms and solvers to ensure fast, accurate results. Modern CFD solutions need to support multiple solvers and be able to select the suitable solver for the job to keep the analysis process moving forward.
CFD problem sizes are not shrinking, and neither are the bandwidth and resources required to perform the analysis. Your CFD solution must take advantage of the latest high-performance computing and parallelization capabilities to deliver mesh and solver solutions that scale with your needs.
Performing CFD analysis can be time consuming. Once you do get results for analysis, being able to efficiently interpret and experiment with the results is key to driving the correct design decisions forward. Your CFD solution should not only focus on accurate results but give you ways to quickly test and optimize your design for optimal outcomes.
Once you have your results, it is critical that you can efficiently communicate your analysis outcomes and recommendations with your teams. Post-processing and reporting are key to enabling effective communication. When you need to revisit your analysis due to design changes or other factors, your simulation configuration should be easily reusable to save valuable setup time.
Geometries for CFD analysis often come from many sources. Your CFD solution needs to be flexible enough to support multiple CAD formats and be able to efficiently modify and repair these models for accurate mesh generation and, ultimately, successful CFD simulation and analysis.
