Simulate efficiently complex body motions

and multiple fluid domains

in an intuitive graphical user interface!

  Define complex body motion in a couple of clicks

You have now the capability to define advanced kinematic links in-between several bodies through the new context Joints.
Get access to any standard kinematic joints: translational, revolute, cylindrical, spherical, universal…

  • For example, for epicyclic gear trains, you can now describe the complete kinematic movements of the bodies by prescribing specific kinematic gear joints (i.e. the tooth number) with the possibility to impose internal gear directly.
  • For piston cooling applications with lubrication, you can now define straightforwardly the complex motion in-between the crankshaft, the rod, and the piston as illustrated in the video below.

   Simulate multiple fluid domains

This new version allows to impose multiple initial fluid domains and/or multiple fluid inlets.
This can be illustrated for paint mixture applications where different paints are poured into one container and are then mixed to ensure the best possible homogeneity.
There are also new filtering functionalities in the Render context to optimize your post-processing to differentiate the fluid from the various inlets/initial domains.

Note that multiple fluid initial domains/inlets must have the same fluid properties.

   Other highlights

  • Couple SPH-flow with your own structure solver thanks to our new Open API for 1-way and 2-way fluid-structure interactions simulations.
  • Accelerate your simulation time with an average speed up of 10%.
  • Simulate your most complex applications with advanced outlet boundary conditions imposing the velocity, the pressure, or extrapolated field.
  • Get access and modify directly your license information into Nextflow Studio.
  • Avoid mistakes when your simulation is running with new read-only parameters.
