Before introducing CAESES we ran about one hundred RANSE simulations per year. On the basis of CAESES we are now able to undertake several ten thousands of viscous simulations every year with no additional effort. This gives us an exceptional insight for key product decisions that we would not be able to generate without CAESES.

I have found CAESES to be an essential tool for high-fidelity modeling and optimization of centrifugal compressor volutes; no other software could give me such a powerful but easy-to-use tool for modeling such a complex geometry. Furthermore, CAESES is the only tool that allowed me to create flexible and robust models that can be used in my automated optimization process.

In our experience, using CAESES for creating parametric models was MUCH faster and easier than with our traditional CAD tool – hours versus weeks! For complex geometries such as ship hulls and propellers, the traditional CAD tool was not the optimum solution because when creating variants we experienced a lot of infeasible geometries, whereas in CAESES we had almost 100% success. At Sirehna, CAESES has become an indispensable tool for conducting comprehensive shape optimization studies in an automated CFD-driven design process.

Getting technical support from FRIENDSHIP SYSTEMS feels like having an expert within my own team. Not only do I get fast professional responses to address my specific questions, but above and beyond that I’m given expert guidance of how to squeeze out the very best performance of my designs.

If the hull is already optimized using CAESES it cannot be improved any further.

When designing on the basis of a parametric model within CAESES we now need just a few minutes to modify the geometry, for instance to capture change requests by a customer. With our traditional CAD we used to spend at least half a day to realize similar adjustments. CAESES really speeds up our processes.

We launched a pilot project with Friendship Systems to evaluate CAESES in May, it helped us solve a time-critical task in July and it became a design tool by October. By then we had created flexible and robust parametric models for complex parts, enabling us to optimize in design spaces we had previously not been able to explore.

I enjoy using CAESES as it allows me to parametrically generate geometries without ever going through a CAD design cycle. In this sense it really streamlined my process from concept to CFD verification.
