We are glad to announce you the release of FINE™/Open with OpenLabs™ version 4.2. 

 HEXPRESS™ and HEXPRESS™/Hybrid are also available as stand­alone for this version 4.2.

In addition to defect corrections, several improvements have been introduced to ease your daily work such as:

  • HEXPRESS™/Hybrid: Edge proximity refinement
  • HEXPRESS™/Hybrid: Ability to disable trimming for planar surfaces
  • FINE™/Open with OpenLabs™: Ability to export results to FINE™/Acoustics format
  • FINE™/Open with OpenLabs™: Ability to define and use control points in a Lab
  • FINE™/Open with OpenLabs™: Abilty to combine CHT with table-­based combustion models

A new module, TabGen/Chemistry, has also been introduced to easily generate combustion look­-up tables.

Thanos got a Mechanical Engineering degree from the National Technical University of Athens, Greece in 2011. After completing the mandatory military service, he went on to study to Turbomachinery Aeromechanics at the Royal Institute of Technology (Sweden), the Université de Liège (Belgium) and Duke University (USA) through the THRUST Erasmus Mundus Programme where he obtained a Master's Degree in Mechanical Engineering while working on problems such the minimization of forcing in turbomachinery blades, engine start-up forced response analysis and non-synchronous vibrations. In 2014, he joined NUMECA as an account manager to manage the full sales cycle for the turbomachinery industry and since 2016 he is a Turbomachinery CFD Engineer helping other engineers solve their CFD problems and creating content to promote CFD in the turbomachinery industry.
