The Three-Click Workflow of nanoFluidX, HyperMesh, and SimLab

Milos Stanic, Product Manager, nanoFluidX
Marlow Springer, Senior Application Specialist, HyperWorks Business Development

The webinar will begin by presenting FluiDyna GmbH and by giving a short introduction to the nanoFluidX (nFX) code. After that the attendees will get a more detailed description of the work flow, emphasizing the ultra-simple pre-processing capabilities of the HyperMesh 14.0.110 and upcoming SimLab 14.2, which allow particle generation with literally three clicks per element. Some details about the solver will also be presented, particularly pointing out the speed up the customer potentially gains in turn-around time for oiling simulations by using nFX on GPU’s. We shall also present the new ParaView 5.0.1 with special SPH features, as well as FieldView version (which should show up by the webinar). Finally, summary and licensing details will be provided for nFX.

New customers can now try a 48-hour test drive of nanoFluidX. For more information and to sign up click here

Fig 1: Planetary gearbox – velocity magnitude for the fluid (left) and the gears (right). Complex motion of the planets is prescribed by an input file. The sun-gear is spinning at 1000 RPM, simulating 1 second of physical time takes 48 hours on 1.5 K80s (3 GPU devices).


Fig 2: Generic 4-cylinder engine, spinning at 3000 RPM for a full second (multiphase flow). The case ran in 96 hours on 4 Titan X GPU cards.


Fig 3: Generic truck tank with 25000 liters of water, braking at 1G for 10 seconds of physical time. The simulation took only 16 hours on 2 K80 GPU cards.



Fig 4: Generic gears rotating at 5000 RPM (multiphase) for 2 full seconds. The color is density (Red = 100% oil, Black = 100% air). Clearly visible oil foaming effects in the left region of the domain and especially lower right region, where formation of large bubbles of air can be seen. The case runs in 40 hours on 2 K80 GPU cards.
