Shortening the Journey from CAD to CFD

Shortening the Journey from CAD to CFD

The Talking CFD Podcast, now in it's second series, has interviewed Mark Gammon, Technical Director at ITI (UK) and CADfix Product Manager.


Preprocessing still takes up a significant amount of time for CFD, and previous podcasts have discussed some of the innovative ways that this can be reduced, for example through better and more robust, automatic meshing. However, before even getting to the mesh, significant time and productivity is invested in developing the CAD model, and the chances are that the CAD being turned into a CFD model wasn’t intended for this purpose.

CADfix fulfills a vital role pre-CFD, ensuring that the CAD is ready to be put through the meshing process and reducing the time getting from CAD to CFD solver.
