August 2012: Caedium v4.0 Released

We couldn't wait any longer to tell you that Caedium v4.0 is finished and awaits your CFD simulations. The highlight of this release is the ability to simulate free surface flows using a Volume of Fluid (VOF) multiphase solver. Also, just in case you missed the steady stream of sneak peeks about the other new features in this release, you'll find the full collection below.

Caedium v4 Free Surface and MRF CFD SimulationCaedium v4 Free Surface and MRF CFD Simulation: Water and air in a mixer

Simulate Free Surface Flows Using a Volume of Fluid CFD Solver

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. Read more >>

Caedium v4 Sneak Peek: CFD for 64-bit Mac OS X

The next release of the Caedium (v4) CFD software system will be fully 64-bit compatible with your Mac OS X computer. This means you will be able to run large simulations in Caedium that access all available memory under OS X v10.6 (Snow Leopard) and above. Read more >>

Caedium v4 Sneak Peek: Porous Media CFD Simulation

You will be able to simulate flow through packed beds and filters in the next release of the Caedium CFD software system. Caedium will support Porous Media using Darcy's Law for volumes and double-sided faces. Read more >>

Caedium v4 Sneak Peek: Japanese Translation

You will be able to perform Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) simulations in a selection of languages, including Japanese, with the next release of the Caedium CFD software system. Read more >>

Caedium v4 Sneak Peek: Rotating Vertical Axis Wind Turbine CFD Simulation

You will be able to simulate rotating wind turbines and mixers with the next release of the Caedium CFD software system. Caedium will support Moving Reference Frames (MRF), which is an efficient way to simulate rotating machinery. Read more >>

Caedium v4 Sneak Peek: Tensile Membrane Structure Analysis

In the next version of Caedium you will be able to perform a CFD simulation of a tensile membrane structure and then export surface pressure coefficient (Cp) data for structural analysis in ixForten 4000. This exciting development will allow ixForten 4000 users to perform non-linear stress analysis to better determine membrane displacement with more precise wind pressure loads than previously available, leading to more cost efficient structures and supports.
