Movie of the Week – Expanding Lungs

A little different to our normal movies but this one shows the diversity of CFD simulation that TotalSim can handle.  Deforming mesh techniques were used to model the inflation of lungs.  We hope you like it. read more →

Above is a link to one of our YouTube videos of a very large DES CFD model of the British athlete David Weir. The CFD simulation was part of a drag reduction exercise carried out with UKSport.  We hope you like the movie. read more →

Update 5 – New features in snappySetup

Example STL refinement region shown in red.  Allows specific refinement within this volume.

This new version of snappySetup includes a couple of additional features for users.  Zero size surface patches (commonly found in export direct from CATIA) are automatically removed Support for STL refinement regions now added. The STL refinement regions are a useful tool for applying very targeted refinement to a model. The user generates a closed.. read more →

Update 5 – Fixed Timestep DES

TotalSim fixed timestep DES simulation

Update 5 includes revised DES templates that should allow far faster DES calculations. Tests performed at TotalSim have typically shown that these revised templates achieve a speed up of between x2 to x5 depending on the vehicle. The methods are different from the standard DES approach in that the time step is fixed rather than.. read more →
