With the new release of Siemens Simcenter SPH Flow 2202, designers and computational fluid dynamics analysts across industries can leverage new capabilities and enhancements to model complex dynamic fluid body interactions while going faster. The new release delivers an enhanced user experience to boost productivity while reducing the time to market, the company says.
New enhancements in Simcenter SPH Flow are aimed at helping users model the complexity and go faster.
The addition of a spring model within Simcenter SPH Flow 2202 helps model dynamic fluid body interaction.
For vehicle wading, the vehicle motion on a complex road can now be modeled by setting the rotation speed of the wheels, their contact on the road, and the suspension of the vehicle. This new feature increases accuracy and user control on the vehicle motion, the company reports. It also improves ease of use for the entire workflow of dynamic movements. In addition, the spring model allows simulation of applications that involve mechanical springs such as valves.
In Simcenter SPH Flow 2202, with the new surface tension model in the implicit solver, you can now set up surface contact angles to define either hydrophilic (high contact angle) or hydrophobic (low contact angle) surfaces.
Compared to the existing surface tension model in the explicit solver, the extension in the implicit solver reduces the simulation time up to a factor of 35 (without free surface generation) with equivalent accuracy, Siemens reports.
