2. How to Control Your CFD Simulations in Caedium

The Caedium Simulation Control Toolbar provides the controls to initialize and run your CFD simulations. Take a moment to learn how to use these simulation controls effectively. Read more >>

3. How to Control Your CFD Mesh in Caedium

The Caedium Accuracy tool is largely responsible for determining the accuracy of your CFD simulations by imposing constraints on the underlying computational mesh or grid. Therefore, it's worth spending a moment to learn how the Accuracy tool in Caedium works. Read more >>

4. Meshing in a Single, Integrated Simulation Environment

Meshing in a single, integrated simulation environment (e.g., Caedium) for CFD is different, in a good way, from meshing in a dedicated mesh or post-processing tool. An integrated CFD simulation environment has the standard meshing tools, but in addition upstream you have a full geometry engine to create and modify geometry as needed, and downstream you can use the same meshing tools for visualization, such as seeds for streamlines and surfaces for results interpolation. You are not forced into a linear progression through the CFD simulation process, because often it requires multiple visits backwards and forwards (non-linear) through the tool chain to get to a final result. Also the visualization of mesh metrics (e.g., surface mesh quality) is identical to general flow field visualization (e.g., pressure), which minimizes the number of concepts you need to learn.

5. How to Share Caedium CFD Results With ixCube 4-10

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 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. Read more >>
