8 Updates You Should Know About: New Platform Features

BlogAbout SimScale8 Updates You Should Know About: New Platform Features

One of the benefits of a cloud-based platform is the steady flow of new features being released frequently. Thanks to feedback from our customers, we’re happy to announce the following features that are now available on the SimScale platform, which ultimately double as reasons to try out SimScale.

Update One: Enter and Escape Feature

Enter and Escape now work for all windows within the UI. (This might be my favorite feature, so many clicks saved!)

Update Two: Auto Mesh

Automatic core choice for meshing is enabled. This means no more guesswork here now, just use auto and go! (OK, this one is my favorite)

Update Three: Analysis Type Helper

The ‘Analysis Type’ choice has been updated. A new helper feature has been added to further guide beginners to simulation to the correct analysis type with confidence.

Update Four: Improved Stability

The post-processor stability has been significantly improved. In the past, we had some issues dealing with larger datasets but now this is entirely resolved.

Update Five: CAD Naming

The post-processor naming function now includes CAD parts. This feature was originally set as a ‘nice to have’, but makes a far bigger difference than I realized now it is finished!

Update Six: Surface Roughness

Surface roughness via ‘Equivalent Sand Grain Roughness’ to ‘Incompressible LBM analysis’ on No-Slip boundary conditions is enabled. The next step for us on the way to providing our customers with all they need to fully utilize our new solver.

Update Seven: Simpler Numerics

Fluid numerics settings have been simplified. Only the primary settings are now being shown by default and secondary settings hidden behind a collapse menu.
