Enhanced CFD Simulations with Conjugate Heat Transfer and Passive Species Transport

The highlight of the latest Caedium (v6.0) release is an enhanced Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) heat transfer capability with multi-domain support for fluids and solids, known as Conjugate Heat Transfer (CHT). Also Caedium can now simulate the dispersal of secondary species (e.g., smoke or dye) in a primary fluid, known as passive species (or scalar) transport.

Asetek Performs Extreme Caedium CFD Simulations at SC12

Asetek Inc. will perform an extreme live demonstration of its state-of-the-art power efficient HPC cluster at SC12 in Salt Lake City, Utah on November 12-15, 2012. To demonstrate their groundbreaking liquid cooling technology, Asetek chose to fully load their showcase cluster by running multiple parallel Caedium Professional CFD simulations.

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.

Nimbis Services Advances Cloud-Based CFD Simulations with Caedium CFD Accelerator

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.

Caedium CFD Animation Featured as an Art Exhibit at the Barbican

On November 24, 2011, Off Modern LATE at the Barbican featured a Caedium Professional CFD animation video of the air flow through a model of the Barbican. The event was part of the OMA/Progress exhibition and featured music by the London Symphony Orchestra.
