    Discover the advantages of the newest version of FINE™/Acoustics, NUMECA’s integrated simulation suite for Aero-Vibro-Acoustics.

    IMPROVED WIZARD FOR TONAL AND BROADBAND NOISE ANALYSIS FOR TURBOMACHINERY

    SPEED:

    The new solver is 2x faster and consumes less memory, allowing engineers to simulate larger, memory intensive cases. The parallelized FEM solver uses the MPI standard (Linux and Windows OS) and is based on full domain decomposition, enabling considerable savings of engineering and simulation time

     

    EASE-OF-USE:

    The wizard offers a fully automated chain, requiring minimal user inputs and operations.

    For direct tonal noise radiation analysis, the NLH solution is directly propagated to the far-field through the Boudary Element Method (BEM – Green’s function) for the computation of sound power and noise levels at microphones. The generation of the BEM radiation surface is supported by a new interactive tool that helps identify optimal surface position and mesh resolution. 

     

    ROBUSTNESS:

    Users can now really exploit the full computational power of their computers, thanks to improved Flow-Noise memory management. Optimized dynamic distribution of the computational load across cores takes into account the available free memory on the computing machine. This means reduced temporary disk space through the reduction of the flow-noise source size stored on disk and the reduction of temporary files.

    Further improved robustness was obtained thanks to work-flow simplification, the enhancement of the internal diagnostic checks and a massive validation test campaigns performed on academic and industrial configurations.
