The latest release of Caedium (v5.0) introduces Python scripting for Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) simulations to automate repetitive tasks and perform parameter studies. This release also has a new Caedium tabbed toolbar GUI which is a more intuitive way to interact with and control your CFD simulations, along with a host of other enhancements.
The latest release of Caedium (v4.0) can perform Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) simulations for free surfaces, such as those that form between water and air around a ship's hull. Also the new version of Caedium contains an extensive array of other enhancements that will help you efficiently simulate more physically realistic phenomena.
MCLEAN, VA, March 26, 2012 - Nimbis Services, Inc. announces the beta release of their on-demand Caedium CFD Accelerator cloud product, the first of two Caedium-based computational fluid dynamics (CFD) service products running on Microsoft’s Windows Azure® cloud platform. Caedium, by Symscape, is a complete desktop CFD workflow environment with an easy to use graphical user interface integrated with OpenFOAM®1 CFD solvers. Nimbis extends the use of Caedium beyond the desktop to the Windows Azure cloud with on-demand access and pay-as-you-go billing through a convenient and unique ecommerce technical computing marketplace. Examples of CFD models frequently analyzed with Caedium include airflow over a moving car or an aircraft wing, and water flow through pipes.
The latest release of Caedium (v3.0) can now create and perform Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) simulations using hybrid models that mix faceted geometry (e.g., Google SketchUp models) with analytic geometry (e.g., CAD models). Also Caedium now has the option to use the Microsoft Windows Azure cloud service to perform CFD simulations.

In collaboration with Microsoft, Symscape has developed a 'burst to Windows Azure' capability for the next release of Caedium (v3) running on Windows HPC Server 2008 R2 SP1. The new feature will allow Caedium users to better optimize their designs by performing more CFD simulations unbounded by on-premises hardware limitations thanks to the elastic resource scaling of the cloud-based Azure service.
