Are you using CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) to design flow-exposed products or components? Is the fluid dynamic behavior of your design critical for realizing the performance requirements?
If your answer is yes, then CAESES® / FRIENDSHIP-Framework (FFW) could be the perfect solution for you. With CAESES/FFW as the Upfront CAE workhorse in the pre-CAD stage, engineers can explore a multitude of design variants within highly automated workflows.
Smart modeling of feasible, simulation-ready geometries
CAESES/FFW is a comprehensive upfront CAD tool:
- Create smart parametric geometries from scratch
- Focus on variable and simulation-ready geometries
- One-time CFD-preprocessing work for all geometry variants
- Import and deform existing geometries
- Examples: Blades, volutes, ducts, diffusers, wings, ship hulls
Utilize CAESES/FFW as your primary CAD tool, or use it as an upfront CAD tool in a collaborative and integrated way with your traditional design and production CAD.
Easily plug-in your simulation tool of choice
CAESES/FFW integrates with most of the leading commercial CFD codes as well as in-house codes. Easily plug-in your CFD package into the environment of CAESES/FFW to undertake design studies and shape optimization.
Examples for simulation tools that have been coupled to CAESES/FFW are STAR-CCM+, ANSYS Fluent/CFX, NUMECA products, OpenFOAM, SHIPFLOW, to name a few.
Highly automated and convenient creation of design variants
CAESES/FFW comes with a set of embedded variation (e.g. DoE), and optimization strategies – ranging from single-objective strategies for fast and efficient studies, to more complex multi-objective techniques which are effective at conducting a global search of a highly non-linear design space containing many local minima and maxima.
