drag and lift coefficients for CFD and fluid dynamics

Drag coefficients in fluid dynamics

This week at the Volupe blog we are announcing our new web page regarding drag coefficients. The web page is an addition to the “Volupe Engineering Handbook” that already comprises the y+ calculator and the information on dimensionless numbers. The aim is to provide useful information on our webpage, that can help the calculation engineer …

Meshing in Simcenter FLOEFD

In this week’s blog post we will look deeper into meshing within Simcenter FLOEFD. A mesh is a discretization of the computational domain where the flow field information will be stored. The mesh will be built of many cells, and information about the flow will be stored in each cell center. The finer the mesh …

The importance of high mesh resolution in heat transfer simulations with Simcenter FloEFD

Mesh resolution is always important to consider when setting up your simulations. The mesh is the discretized representation of your domain, and for the results to be as accurate as possible we need to create a discretization that is as close to reality as possible. Therefore, we will go through an example in this week’s …

Structural module in Simcenter FloEFD

One of the new modules in Simcenter FloEFD, the Structural module, allows you to perform FEM (finite element method) simulations. The solver is a linear stress solver which can solve both static structural analysis and modal frequency analysis. This week’s blog post is a video tutorial on how to set up a simple structural simulation in Simcenter FloEFD. The structural simulation may also be combined with a CFD simulation, where both pressure and temperature can …
