Daat Research Corp. has cut solution time for transient problems by more than ten times with its new v.14 CFD software. This new software now allows engineers to use larger steps when solving transients and this greatly reduces the solution time. The new software also decreases the number of grid cells and stores object geometry in case files.
“Determining apriori whether flow is laminar or turbulent is not easy, even for experienced mechanical engineers. For electrical engineers, who are often the most enthusiastic Coolit fans, it is even more of a challenge. In v.14, Coolit offers a powerful assistant to help with this task. Building on artificial intelligence techniques, the software analyzes specified flow and heat sources, as well as boundary conditions to predict the flow regime. If the software-determined regime is different from the one specified by the user, a warning is issued,” according to the company.
