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 …

Animations within Simcenter FloEFD

This week at the Volupe blog we will look into animations within Simcenter FloEFD. There are several ways of visualizing calculated data, but when running transient simulations – what is more informative than watching an animation? Summary of blog post  Create animations of the results from your simulation in two different ways.  Record your screen in Simcenter FloEFD.  Use the built in tool “transient explorer” …

How to simulate heat transfer in Simcenter FloEFD

This week we have a new video tutorial in Simcenter FloEFD. In this tutorial we will add heat transfer to the case of flow inside a pipe. Together with the previous tutorial of how to set up the Wizard (https://volupe.se/how-to-set-up-the-wizard-in-simcenter-floefd/), these two videos show how to set up a heat transfer case from importing a geometry to post-processing the results.   …
