Simulia TOSCA Fluid 2.4.2 | 418.2 MB
FE-DESIGN GmbH, a engineering and software company for numerical optimization solutions based on finite element analysis (FEA) and computational fluid dynamics (CFD), announced the update of Tosca Fluid 2.4, is so far the only available system for topology optimization of channel flow problems.
Starting from an initial design space, an optimized design of a flow channel is determined automatically by Tosca Fluid. With only one CFD solver run an optimized structure with e.g. significantly reduced pressure drop or homogeneous flow is derived. This allows for the first time an economic topology optimization of industrial large scale flow applicatons.
What new in SIMULIA TOSCA Fluid 2.4:
Supported CFD solver interfaces
- Tosca Fluid supports STAR-CCM+ starting with version 6.04.014. The newest supported solver version is 9.02. Both the single and the double precision variants of STAR-CCM+ are supported. Furthermore the installer now allows the set-up PoD license usage of STAR-CCM+ by adding according options to the solver call.
- Tosca Fluid supports using the Fluent solver versions 13.0 to 15.0.
Refinement of slices near flow boundaries
- A new feature to increase the number of slices along the primary particle tracks near the flow boundaries has been introduced. The usage of the feature can be activated within the graphical user interface. Additionally, a parameter defining the level of refinement is available.
Filtering slices based on particle tracks
- A method for filtering the extracted slices by checking intersections with the primary particle tracks has been added. If a slice along a primary particle track is resulting in multiple closed splines, only the spline enclosing this specific primary particle track is retained. This is especially helpful for an eased CAD reconstruction in case of multiple primary particle tracks when creating a slice for one primary track would result in cutting other primary particle tracks as well.
