Since we founded Resolved Analytics in 2015 we've spoken with hundreds of entrepreneurs pursuing early stage technologies. What we've heard again and again is that the traditional design cycle (prototype-test-prototype) is broken and can't keep up with the pace of the startup world where a year is an eternity (especially when you're sleeping on your friend's couch). Funding is typically only available to those companies who can demonstrate prototype technologies that have the potential to outperform traditional technologies. Unfortunately, not all bright ideas are born perfect, believe it or not, and iterative design improvements are a necessary step for most before they reach this level of demonstration performance. When the traditional prototype-test-prototype design cycle can take months and cost hundreds of thousands of dollars to complete one revolution, it is obvious that this methodology is not well suited for a fast-paced, bootstrapped business climate. This is where computational engineering has much to offer.
Startup companies can now accelerate their path to market by leveraging the same cutting-edge engineering simulation solutions used by larger, more established industry leaders. Don't worry, we know what you're thinking, because we've heard it before. We can find a solution that meets both your needs and your budget.
Part 4 of our series on Comparing CFD Software discusses two of the best in class “comprehensive” CFD packages out there: Siemens Simcenter STAR-CCM+ and ANSYS Fluent.
In this section, we’re discussing software packages that strive to be comprehensive, multi-physics tools but, in our opinion, fall just a little short in some respect. There are many available CFD software packages that could be described as semi-comprehensive, and we couldn’t possible review them all and still get any real work done. So here, we are focusing on three software packages in this category based on their large user base and/or their potential to become comprehensive: COMSOL Multiphysics, CONVERGE CFD, and Numeca OMNIS.
In this simulation we answer the question "How thermally efficient is a Christmas Pyramid" using computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulations.
There are numerous advantages to using open-source software packages of all types, but along with those advantage come a few catches. Part 2 of Comparing CFD Software discusses the use of OpenFOAM for CFD applications in depth, reviewing its background, capabilities, and more.
CAD-Embedded CFD Software is overhyped, but it is still a good value for some users. Part 1 of Comparing CFD Software discusses in depth the 3 most popular CAD-Embedded CFD Software: SolidWorks Flow Simulation, Autodesk CFD, and Ansys Discovery Live.
What Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) software package is right for you? We take you through a pros-and-cons style comparison of the most popular CFD software on the market. Featuring SolidWorks Flow Simulation, Autodesk CFD, Discovery Live, Open-FOAM, COMSOL, CONVERGE CFD, STAR-CCM+, Fluent and many more.
Robin Knowles from Talking CFD asked us to share our story. Read the recap or listen to the interview about how we started our engineering consultancy Resolved Analytics along with some advice to others seeking a similar path.
We based our top ten list of best fluid dynamics inventions on a combination of the overall impact of the invention and the depth of fluids science required, asking ourselves, "What would have been the effect on society if each development had never occurred."
If you are reading this, chances are you are just getting started with CFD. Here are a few straightforward and candid thoughts based on my 15 years of experience on things to consider as you move forward with CFD. I hope some of them can help you avoid bumps along the way.
