Fluid Dynamics simulation of cavitation in pumps and propellers

Fluid Dynamics simulation of cavitation in pumps and propellers

Still today cavitation is one of the most challenging topics that CFD engineers have to face. This blog article summarizes some state-of-the-art CFD technology for cavitation prediction, covering different applications and CFD features in order to answer engineers' needs.

Structured meshing configurations with bulbs using OMNIS™/AutoGrid

Structured meshing configurations with bulbs using OMNIS™/AutoGrid

Meshing is always a compromise between computational efficiency and the needed accuracy. We need the smallest possible mesh to capture the effects that we consider as the most important inf our simulations.
