Recap of Six Recent CFD Success Stories with a Meshing Assist

No one generates a mesh just to generate a mesh. The proof of a mesh’s suitability is successful use in a CFD simulation. That success can be predicated on many factors including the availability of a broad range of mesh … Continue reading

It’s all in the numbering – mesh renumbering may improve simulation speed

We all know that the mesh plays a vital role in CFD simulations. Yet, not many realize that renumbering (ordering) of the cells in the Finite Volume Method (FVM) can affect the performance of the linear solver and thus the … Continue reading

Reducing Boiler Emissions Through Shape Optimization

In this work, a flexible framework for discrete adjoint-based reactive flow optimization in SU2 is presented. The implementation is based on a low-Mach number solver and a flamelet progress variable model for strongly cooled laminar premixed flames. Besides the combustion … Continue reading
