Simulation on the Cloud

CONSELF Platform

 

Fluid Dynamics (CFD)

 

Laminar or turbulent fluid dynamics models can be selected depending on the fluid flow Reynolds number. Both steady-state and transient solvers are available. Rotating, single and multiphase flows can be analyzed. Advanced models such as flows-with-particles and porous media can also be added.

 

Finite Element Analysis (FEA)

 

Static and dynamic simulations are available for Structural Mechanics, with both elastic and plastic materials behavior. Modal and frequency analyses can also be carried out starting from most common CAD neutral file formats.

How it works

CAD UPLOAD AND EDITING

Geometry step

Upload or import a 3D CAD model of the system you want to study. You are able to easily interact with it in the graphical window, preparing the geometry for your simulation. All major file formats are already supported: STEP, IGES, STL, OBJ and IFC (Building Information Module).

MESH AND SIMULATION SETUP

Meshing

Create your computational grid with a straightforward and automated workflow, fully control your mesh quality to achieve best accuracy. Setup your simulation and take advantage of a step-by-step wizard to run Fluid Dynamics and Structural Mechanics analysis.

RESULT VIEW AND DOWNLOAD

Online Post-processing

Once your simulation is completed, take a look at your results as you do in a real laboratory. Measure efficiency, discover improvement possibilities, gain more insight into your design. And if you need it, you can also download the solution file for local post-processing.

Simulation features

Computational Fluid Dynamics – CFD

External aerodynamics: velocity streamlines
Laminar and turbulent regimes

Use the appropriate model depending on your flow Reynolds number. You can choose between laminar or multiple turbulence models to meet very high accuracy standards.

Turbo-machinery: velocity vectors
Steady and transient simulations

Estimate your flow behavior for the stationary equilibrium configuration or simulate the physical quantities evolution in time-dependent phenomena.

Valve: velocity streamlines
Incompressible and compressible fluids

The web application gives access to solvers for handling both incompressible and compressible fluids, depending on the Mach number of your specific case.

Multi-phase: iso-volume
Multi-phase flows

Using the Volume of Fluid method (VOF) this solver allows to simulate more than one phase (Water-air, water-air, etc). Modeling free-surface flows is crucial in multiple applications, from marine environment to chemical processes.

HVAC: velocity contours
Passive scalar transport and heat transfer

Non-reacting contaminant species diffusion or temperature evolution in forced convection are well represented by passive scalar transport model. This solver gives you access to latest technology for assessment of HVAC or heat exchange systems.

Internal flow: velocity streamlines
Advanced features

Many additional advanced models are available: flows with solid dispersed particles with optional erosion estimation, porous media, rigid body movement coupled with flow evolution are just few examples.

Finite Element Analysis – FEA

Static FEA analysis: Von Mises stress
Linear static analysis

Evaluate material resistance and shape deformation for components undergoing static loads. Choose among pressure acting normally to the surface or forces along a prescribed direction as well as the correct fixing constrain.

Static FEA analysis: Von Mises stresses and deformation
Non-linear and dynamic analysis

The platform allows to take into account real world physics implying non-linearity and time-dependent solutions. It is possible to simulate material plastic behavior as well as dynamic loads and component inertia.

Modal FEA analysis: modal displacements
Modal analysis and natural frequencies

Estimate components natural frequencies and calculate modal displacements, useful to assess their behavior in context such as vibrations and acoustic.

CAD Pre-processing and Meshing

Onshape import
CAD upload or import

Upload the CAD model from your local drive or import it directly from Onshape, the full-Cloud CAD. The platform currently supports STEP, IGES, STL, OBJ and IFC (Building Information Module) geometry files, with the possibility to add more file types upon request.

Geometry step
Pre-processing and boundaries

Easy interaction with the geometry using straightforward operations in the graphical window and definition of boundaries that will be used during mesh and simulation steps.

Hexahedral mesh
Hexahedral meshing

The hexahedral meshing algorithm allows you to create very regular grids for CFD simulations. It is very robust, it is in fact able to produce very good meshes even when dealing with problematic geometries.

meshtetra
Tetrahedral meshing

The tetrahedral meshing algorithm allows you to create computational grids for both FEA and CFD simulations. It is very accurate in preserving CAD shape since it starts from the surface mesh generation, obtained triangulating model faces.

Tetrahedral mesh with boundary layer
Automation, refinement and boundary layer

The meshing procedure is highly automated allowing a very straightforward grid creation. It is also highly customizable giving you the possibility to prescribe different refinements on different regions as well as activating the boundary feature where you need it for both tetrahedral and hexahedral algorithms.

Results Post-processing

Online post-processing
Online visualization

Once your simulation is completed, you can take a look at the results and perform many operation on the solution file right into the platform, with no need to download a single byte.  All major filters are available: slice, contour, isovolume, streamlines and many more.

Offline post-processing
Download Paraview solution file

You can also always download your solution file and elaborate it locally with Paraview, one of the best software for scientific data analysis that is 100% free.
