The Functional Mock-up Interface and FMUs for Co-Simulation and Model Export

In this week’s blog post we have a closer look at the inner workings of the Functional Mock-up Interface (FMI) and focus our attention on what the standard entails and how it can be leveraged for a more all-encompassing analysis. Throughout this article, dynamic system simulation models from Simcenter Amesim are used as examples on […]

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
