Caedium Professional is ideal for assessing the performance of concept designs by creating geometry, simulating fluid flow with heat transfer, and visualizing results under both steady-state and transient conditions. Caedium Professional is an affordable, easy-to-use, integrated simulation environment that contains the following add-ons: RANS Flow - use state-of-the-art RANS CFD to simulate realistic (viscous) gas (e.g. air) or liquid (e.g. water) flow with heat transfer around and through your design to determine flow directions and forces (e.g., lift and drag); Panel Flow - use a panel method to simulate idealized (inviscid) gas (e.g. air) or liquid (e.g. water) flow around streamlined shapes and through simple ducts to determine flow directions and forces (e.g., lift); Builder - create and modify your own 2D and 3D geometry designs; Transient - explore time-dependent simulations and visualization of results; Exchange - import and export STEP, IGES and faceted file formats (including COLLADA from Google SketchUp); Viz Export - export your 3D results to high resolution, high quality renderers and other visualization packages.
What is new in this release:
The latest release of Caedium (v5.1.3) from Symscape has a new Helix tool for your Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) simulations and improved mesh element size control. Using the new Helix tool you can create cylindrical or conical helices for your CFD simulations. For example, combined with the improved Sweep tool you can now sweep an edge along a helix to produce a strake for a chimney. With the improved mesh element sizing for the Accuracy tool you can now be confident that the mesh size is locally bounded around the geometry with the applied mesh size constraint. This release also includes a number of critical bug fixes.
