ESI Group, a supplier of digital simulation software, has partnered with Optimal Solutions Software to reduce the time required for complex design studies.
With the combination of ESI Group’s CFD-ACE+ computational fluid dynamics (CFD) system and Optimal Solutions Software’s Sculptor, a computational-aided engineering real-time design deformation technology, users benefit from the system to improve productivity and overall speed, claims ESI.
According to ESI Group, its system CFD-VisCART allows users to mesh complex geometry. As design studies are evaluated, Sculptor is then used to quickly deform the mesh in real-time for subsequent runs. This is all completed without having to go back to the CAD model or do any additional re-meshing.
Joseph Strelow, director of design and analysis simulation at ESI Group, said: The solution begins when a CAD model is delivered and finishes when a final design is approved. We’re now able to assist in reducing development times by up to 30% due to recent advances in ESI’s CFD-VisCART and CFD-ACE+ Multiphysics products. Combining these with Sculptor’s morphing technology provides our customers with an even more powerful solution.
