Modelling

  • Cavity wizard, a specialised graphical Interface to aid cavity model creation.
  • In-built library of component models underpinned by empirical data from extensive research into fluid flow characteristics by DS Miller

  • Customisable catalogues of components and data with which you can organise your models and data to suit the way your company works

  • Create composite components to group subsystems and simplify large complex models making it easy for others to use

  • Advanced Design Visualisation tools for organising networks and sub-systems onto layers giving you greater control over complex models

  • Smart Modelling tools to prevent the user from connecting incompatible components

Simulation

  • A 3D coordinate system for simulating the effect of rotating systems on the air systems of a turbine

  • Integrated swirl solver for predicting the flow temperature effects on the system due to high speed rotating surfaces
  • Transient and steady state simulation including; incompressible, compressible and heat transfer analysis options

  • Dynamic real time colour visualization of running simulations. As the simulation runs the network components change colour to indicate pressure and flow rates around the system

  • 2D graphical simulation display and automatic out putting of results to report documents

  • Flow balancing module for optimising component sizes around your system providing valuable cost savings and promoting greater performance efficiency

  • Fluid Mixing functionality for the ability to model the mixing of liquids or gases

Data Management & Collaboration

  • Data management facility built on an industrial strength, multi-user relational database, giving you flexibility in how you represent your models, data and results within your organisation and to others in the supply chain

  • Project administration tools restricting access to project data to individuals that require it within a project team. This tailored environment allows for easy access to data for those that need it.

  • Audit trail & tracking of model history functionality keeps track of design changes and associated data, offering the designer a chance to ‘roll back’ to previous versions, and quick compare results from different designs saving valuable modelling time

Integration

  • Integrate fully with existing CAE, 3D CFD and optimisation tools such as MATLAB®, STAR-CD, FLUENT®, iSIGHT, modeFRONTIER and Excel

  • Incorporate in-house software tools whilst leveraging the power of Flowmaster
