Envenio's September CFD Round-Up

Home » Blog » Envenio's September CFD Round-Up

In a month where we unveiled our new-look website, spread the word about our CFD survey, and highlighted a number of EXN/Aero features such as many-to-many and conjugate heat transfer, one could be forgiven for thinking we haven't had a moment to ourselves! In this month's September summary, we check out some of the best articles featured on our blog during September, and some of the simulation headlines from around the world.

Structured Grids. Still In Style?

Pointwise article written back in 2013 pointed out how one could be forgiven for thinking structured grids are almost entirely redundant in today's unstructured or hybrid meshing world. 

As one of the most critical aspects of solving problems through computational fluid dynamics (CFD), appropriate mesh generation is essential for an accurate solution, faster convergence, and reduction of numerical diffusion. This month, we revisited this essential topic; assessing how best to determine mesh quality, clarifying grid classification, and discussing the many advantages of structured meshing.

The Simulation Industry Has Spoken...Envenio Responds.

Earlier this month, we explored an insightful article by CFD Engine in which 12 industry experts shared their views and opinions of the CFD industry. The experts highlighted areas where innovation is currently being restricted and engineers are being held back. The responses are extremely useful for a CFD software vendor such as ourselves, raising valid points from the 'front line' of simulation.

We selected a few of the key themes highlighted by the article, and explained how we're tackling these limitations through workable, affordable, and accessible solutions via our cloud-based, on-demand CFD platform, EXN/Aero.

HPC Trends...How CFD Must Be Proactive NOT Reactive.

A range of industry trends and adaptations in high performance computing (HPC) reflect both technological advances and consumer demand. With cost, performance, and accessibility driving these trends, the CFD community must adopt an open minded approach, fully tracking HPC advances.

The reactive approach taken over recent years (ever-increasing hardware etc) is simply unsustainable, and CFD vendors must look to methods such as the cloud, acceleration, and a manycore mindset to retain future innovation.

Try EXN/Aero For Yourself

EXN/Aero uses next generation algorithms that reduces solving time by up to 20x. This speed-up reduces your simulation cost and enables you to run much larger or higher resolution models in less time. The on-demand cloud-hosted version gives you the ability to use (and pay for) CFD only when you need it. October is the perfect time to take a trial and experience the advantages for yourself. Find out more below.
