There are many applications and approaches to consider for fluid analysis in the current CAE environment, with each application and new capability accompanied with more exploration into the market and further expense. What if there was system whereby all the applications needed were under one roof, with one licensing system and supported by one unified team?

With a line-up of inspirational speakers and industry experts, this free to attend online event will demonstrate how leading companies are exploiting the latest multi-disciplinary computational fluid dynamics (CFD) solutions to optimise gearbox oiling, analysing tank sloshing, perform rapid external aerodynamics studies, predict and reduce undesirable wind noise and much more.

Watch the Recordings and Learn:

  • How leading companies are utilising the latest CFD simulation technologies to accelerate development cycles
  • How GPU’s can accelerate your modelling and solving process, reducing design time
  • The requirements and applications for high fidelity fluid runs
  • How Altair's CFD offerings can enable your organisation to reduce software expenditure without compromising accuracy

NVIDIA’s invention of the GPU sparked the growth of the PC gaming market, redefined modern computer graphics, and revolutionized parallel computing – transforming manufacturing design and engineering. More recently, GPU deep learning ignited modern AI — the next era of computing — with the GPU acting as the brain of computers, robots, and self-driving cars that can perceive and understand the world. GPUs now accelerate simulations in workstations, compute servers, enable mobile design access and enable remote and cloud deployment of high-performance manufacturing applications.



Alsim PAINT SHOP from ESS allows you to get full control over the most expensive process in the automotive industry. It includes a unique simulation tool allowing to accurately detect air bubbles and liquid carry-over – two main problematic areas in paint shop processes. These modules are validated by productive Body-In-Whites and can be run on single workstation. Alsim PAINT SHOP is especially developed for ease of use, which allows even non-experts to use the software.



Intelligent Light helps you harness the power and value of highly productive CFD workflows with industry leading software and services. The company’s flagship FieldView™ CFD post-processing software is used every day by thousands of engineers around the world. Intelligent Light's expert staff provides Custom Engineered Solutions for data management, workflow automation, visualization, and more, while their Applied Research Group conducts pure research on the cutting edge of CFD science. With customer success their paramount goal, Intelligent Light is driving real-world solutions for the toughest challenges in CFD today.



Flow Simulator from GE is an integrated flow, heat transfer, and combustion design software that enables mixed fidelity simulations to optimize machine and systems design. This tool allows users to import actual hardware and utilization of 3D CAD point-cloud to automatically create the computational model overlaid on the machine hardware. An extended library of preconfigured elements/components is available to model/simulate a wide-range of physical phenomena including compressible/incompressible fluid flow, buoyancy-driven flow, rotating cavity system flow, conduction/convection/radiation heat transfer, combustion equilibrium-chemistry & species transport.
