When you find yourself tasked with the design of something unconventional, then Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) is here to help. For instance consider the aircraft industry. It used to be that the dominant type of aircraft required a pilot and therefore a cockpit with a good view of the world. Then Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) went mainstream and everything changed.

ixCube 4-10 is a comprehensive design tool for tensile structures, also known as membranes. By sharing your membranes with Caedium Professional you can perform Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) analysis to determine wind loads (e.g., pressure coefficient) and then export those results from Caedium and import them back into ixCube 4.10 for further stress and shape analysis. Watch the video for instructions on the process.

You know how it is - you are away from the office and you are desperate to check in on a series of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) simulations you are running back at your base. Then once the simulations finish you'd like to take a moment to look at each one with all the benefits of hardware accelerated graphics on your laptop, while still enjoying your latte at Starbucks. Well you can do both today without any extra outlay using Caedium and free apps from Google - let me describe how.

Where the action of a fluid is the primary concern in the design of a device, e.g., a cyclone, sometimes it can seem that fluid is going out of its way to be difficult - a lot like trying to herd cats. Fluid device designers have to carefully match geometry to flow rates to meet performance criteria. However, if they were to rely solely on physical testing, then their task is that much harder and more costly because they can't easily visualize the flow behavior. Let Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) save you money and time as a supplement to physical testing.
