New features are available in XFlow 2017
Immersed Boundary Method
Implementation of a new Immersed Boundary (IB)
Method for moving walls that allows to:
- Reduce computation time for complex systems with several moving
- Improve MPI scalability for simulations with several moving
- Reduce numerical noise due to lattice cells
activations/deactivation of moving parts
MPI Supersonic Engine
engine to run distributed simulations:
- Possibility to use HPC for big supersonic simulations with
- Possibility to validate XFlow on reference supersonic
improvements in the supersonic solver:
- Thermal boundary conditions applied correctly.
- Temperature field solved correctly.
- More stable temperature field in the wall models.
Multiphase Thermal Solvers
Possibility to run thermal analysis
- Particle-based tracking multiphase solver
- Phase field multiphase solver
Applications: Gearbox oil lubrication
- Oil heated by the rotating gear
- Air heated by the oil splashing
- Heat transfer between the rotating gear from one , and oil and
air from the other side.
Conjugate Heat Transfer with Moving Parts
The Conjugate Heat Transfer (CHT) boundary condition can be applied
even on moving parts.
- Gearbox oil lubrication to check the solid conduction inside
the rotating gear
- Cooling analysis of vehicles rotating brake discs.
New Project Tree and Workflow
Reimplementation of the Project Tree of
- More stable interface
- More user-friendly and interactive GUI
- Support of big numbers of parts
- New laws editor with graphical representation
- Ground of future perspectives for GUI
New Render Engine
Reimplementation of a new render engine
for graphical post-processing:
- Faster graphical post-processing: Cutting planes, Volumetric
- More interactive Graphic View
- More robust graphical display
- Better materials visualizations with new control parameters
Different languages will be supported
