The 2017 release of the AcuSolve product suite brings major advancements in CFD modeling capabilities to HyperWorks users. The latest release of the software contains an expanded suite of physics, enabling the simulation of transitional turbulent flows, immiscible multiphase flows, and advanced moving mesh capabilities.
In addition to the new physics that are supported with the 2017 release, the webinar will review the enhancements to existing features, such as an expanded selection of RANS turbulence models, enhancements to the accuracy of non-conformal mesh interfaces, and usability improvements for automatic splitting of nodes.
Turbulence model additions
For turbulent simulations, users can now select from three industry standard K-Epsilon two-equation turbulence closure models. Laminar to turbulent transition has also been added to the Spalart Allmaras and SST turbulence models.
Beta Feature – Multiphase Flow Simulation Capabilities
AcuSolve 2017 represents the first release of the solver targeted towards the simulation of multiphase flows. AcuSolve’s initial offering within this field is targeted at applications that are typically simulated using a Volume of Fluid (VOF) approach. These applications include slug flows, free surface flows, and stratified flows.
Improvements to Non-conformal Mesh Interface Technology
This release includes changes to the formulation that improve the accuracy of the solution across the interface as well as a number of other enhancements and fixes.
