SimScale Platform Update 01/2015: LES Turbulence models

Since the last product update, another set of new features on the SimScale platform. Benefit from the new Platform Updates – find more details about some of them below.

New tutorials

To get you started very fast using SimScale for productive simulation, new step-by-step tutorial including explanation videos have been created. You can find all of them on the SimScale YouTube Channel.

Numerous GUI improvements

The user interface has been improved in multiple parts of the platform to provide a clean, efficient workflow with SimScale.

Temperature dependent material behavior

The thermal analysis types do now allow the definition of temperature dependent material parameters. That way the behavior of materials under external temperature changes can be modelled more accurate.

LES Turbulence models

To simulate turbulent flows even more accurate, the first large eddy simulation turbulence models have been integrated. From now on, the new options ‘LES Smagorinsky’ and ‘LES Spalart Allmafras’ are available for the choice of the turbulence model.
