    This release of the Cadence Omnis CFD environment is available now and brings better project and file management, more geometry repair tools, multi-block structured meshing and faster Turbo and Open solvers, to name but a few of the improvements. Special attention was given for this update to 3 further improvements that were high on the demand list:

    • Unsteady sliding-grid simulation of hydraulic turbines
    • Detect and display vortex cores
    • Migrate easily from FINE/Turbo to Omnis

    Amongst other improvements, this new release includes:

    Limitless NonLinear Harmonic method with the rank-N

    The NonLinear Harmonic method is a unique feature of FINE™ that has quickly become a staple among turbomachinery design engineers. It provides accurate modeling of periodic unsteady disturbances throughout a turbomachine – information typical of URANS simulations, but now several orders of magnitude faster.

    AutoGrid5™ – a new approach for impellers with blunt blades

    Most impellers are built using a traditional subtraction manufacturing process: a milling machine uses a cutting tool to form the blade surface in one or more passes. This technique allows for high flexibility and quality of the finished part, but each blade has to be defined by a relatively large fillet radius and a trimmed profile. The newest mesh topology in AutoGrid5™ accurately replicates the fillet’s and blade’s actual geometry, without sacrificing mesh quality thanks to the so-called “butterfly” topology. The trailing edge of the impeller is connected to the next block by a non-matching connection to prevent distortion of cells downstream of the trailing edge.

    FINE™/Agile 16.1

    Includes the latest release from Concepts NREC (version 8.9), with numerous improvements and fixes for a better preliminary and detailed design
