CFD Software Solution Introduced by UK's Desktop Engineering

Press Release
Monday, May 21, 2012

Desktop Engineering (DTE), business partner of MSC Software, recently launched XFlow 2012, a state-of-the-art Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) software solution

Desktop Engineering (DTE), a leading engineering software solutions provider and strategic business partner of MSC Software, announced the UK launch of MSC’s XFlow 2012; a state-of-the-art Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) solution. The latest release of XFlow has been written to run on all Linux platforms as well as Windows, and also now features distributed memory processing across HPC clusters to offer near linear scalability of analysis.

XFlow is a powerful CFD technology from Next Limit Technologies, a strategic partner of MSC Software, that uses a proprietary, particle-based, meshless approach which can easily handle traditionally complex problems in sectors such as engineering, design, science, and architecture. XFlow provides the ability to simulate the flow of gases and liquids, heat and mass transfer, moving bodies, multiphase physics, acoustics and fluid structure interaction. The XFlow approach to CFD enables complex modeling and analysis in a straightforward way, minimizing the presence of algorithmic parameters and avoiding the traditionally time consuming meshing process. For engineers and analysts who require quick and accurate feedback on flow, thermal, and acoustic behaviour, XFlow provides the following benefits:

    •    Solution Efficiency
XFlow dramatically improves the ´solution quality versus time-to-solution´ trade-off, lowering times and costs, and thus offering a real alternative to analysis in experimental facilities.
    •    Implementation Cost
XFlow utilizes a proprietary particle-based approach to Computational Fluid Dynamics which is easy to set up and use, and which significantly reduces training and support costs.
    •    Hardware Requirements
XFlow's innovative approach allows complex problems to be solved on standard modern desktop computers, removing the need for large clusters or HPC systems.
    •    Best-in-class Technology
XFlow's advanced techniques easily handle traditionally complex problems such as aero-acoustics, moving parts, free surface flows and fluid-structure interaction
