CFD Tools, Software
Applied CFD is using the following Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) tools and methodology: to provide practical solutions for industrial customers.
ANSYS Fluent software contains the broad physical modeling capabilities needed to model flow, turbulence, heat transfer, and reactions for industrial applications, .e.g, combustion in a furnace, bubble columns, blood flow , semiconductor manufacturing, wastewater treatment plants. Special models that give the software the ability to model in-cylinder combustion, aeroacoustics, turbomachinery, and multiphase systems.
ANSYS CFX combines advanced solver technology with a modern user interface and an adaptive architecture to make CFD accessible to both designers with general engineering knowledge and fluid dynamics specialists requiring in-depth model control and options.It is used in a vast array of industries to provide detailed insight into equipment and processes that increase efficiency, improve product longevity and optimize processes. ANSYS CFX software is fully integrated into the ANSYS Workbench environment, the framework for the full suite of engineering simulation solutions from ANSYS. CFD Pre-Processing in CFX-Pre The ANSYS CFX physics pre-processor is a modern and intuitive interface for the setup of CFD analyses.
The OpenFOAM® (Open Field Operation and Manipulation) CFD Toolbox can simulate complex fluid flows involving chemical reactions, turbulence and heat transfer, to solid dynamics, electromagnetics. OpenFOAM uses finite volume numerics to solve systems of partial differential equations ascribed on any 3D unstructured mesh of polyhedral cells.
News:August 15, 2011 — SGI (NASDAQ: SGI), a trusted leader in technical computing, today announced that it has completed the acquisition of OpenCFD Ltd., the leader in open source computational fluid dynamics.
KIVA is a transient, three-dimensional, multiphase, multicomponent code for the analysis of chemically reacting flows with sprays (Los Alamos National Laboratory). The code uses an Arbitrary Lagrangian Eulerian (ALE) methodology on a staggered grid. The range of validity of the code extends from low speeds to supersonic flows for both laminar and turbulent regimes. A stochastic particle method is used to calculate evaporating liquid sprays, including the effects of droplet collisions and aerodynamic breakups.
ParaView is an open-source, multi-platform data analysis and visualization application. ParaView can build visualizations to analyze data using qualitative and quantitative techniques, and data exploration can be done interactively in 3D or using batch processing.
