Fluidyn-CAE (Computer Aided Engineering), CAD and Data Processing
fluidyn-CAE is a new generation software for engineers. fluidyn-CAE is a CAD based software which can be used in case studies pre-processing and post-processing of results. It is a powerful tool for application-performance-seeking engineers, especially to save time and gain efficiency in case set-up, optimisation and post-processing data. It is related to fluidyn-MP software for solution and for meshing optimisations.
fluidyn-CAE is first a general CAD tool which allows engineers to perform powerful CAD modelling and prepare geometries for efficient and fast meshing. There are two means of generating CAD geometries in fluidyn-CAE, namely:
Bottom-up method for which points, curves, nurbs, surfaces, volumes are created.
Top-down method which allows the user to create geometries from 3D primitive objects and boolean operations on volumes
fluidyn-CAE allows to create specific primitives and store them for specific applications (obstacles, pipes; windows, desks, persons, ...).
In addition,fluidyn-CAE allows the import of external standard formats such as : IGES/DXF/STL, STEP, X_T,... Efficient repairing tools are available to clean geometries and to convert the rough CAD files into topologically valid shells, ready for meshing.fluidyn-CAE is a user-friendly GUI based software, with advanced graphical picture edition tools.
Besides CAD modelling, fluidyn-CAE is a real pre-processor for case-set-up, which simplifies work for engineers. All input data can be entered through the CAD-GUI.
fluidyn-CADGEN is an integrated software for geometric modelling and mesh generation. It is used to create a wide variety of geometry (surfaces and volumes) also and import files in IGES/DXF/STL format. There are several mesh generators in fluidyn-CADGEN, which allows the user to perform completely body fitted meshes such as:
Direct Complex meshes on fluidyn-GEN or fluidyn-CADGEN based geometries (topologically valid shells).
