With the latest update of the SimScale Early Access version, several new features have been released. One of them is a mesh layer refinement feature that enables a more accurate discretization of the computational domain near physical walls.
The mesh creation is controlled through a multi-step approach via several parameters that allow the determination of the resulting mesh appearance. However, due to the automation of every step, the mesh creation is straightforward and fast. After meshing and running a simple transient, laminar flow simulation on it, one obtains the desired results after a few minutes.
Additionally, we included the first turbulence models and a steady-state solver that enable the setup of more sophisticated CFD simulations. We would be glad to get your opinion on the new features.
Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) is the branch of CAE that allows you to simulate fluid motion using numerical approaches. The cloud-based CFD software component of SimScale allows the analysis of a wide range of problems related to laminar and turbulent flows, incompressible and compressible fluids, multiphase flows and more—everything 100% in your browser. The platform eliminates the barrier of limited computing power, accessibility, and cost. With SimScale, heat transfer, moving and rotating parts and flows in a porous medium can also be investigated.

The CFD software component of SimScale allows the simulation of both incompressible and compressible flow in a robust way, for applications such as buildings, theaters, airplanes, cars, airfoils, injectors, valves, ducts, and more.
SimScale supports the modeling of both laminar and turbulent flow regimes. Applications include pipes, cyclone separators, smoke propagation or cleanroom design.
Commonly seen in water purification, contamination control or gas or smoke propagation cases, passive scalar transport allows performing CFD analysis of matter transport in an incompressible flow.
The modeling of multiphase or multicomponent flows using the volume of fluid (VoF) method for interface capturing is possible with SimScale.
SimScale provides tools for modeling a complex fluid flow interacting with rotating parts and porous media.
The simulation of problems involving solid-body motion with 6 DoF (Degrees of Freedom) movement is also an option with SimScale.
