Next-Generation Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) from SIMULIA

SIMULIA XFlow uses the breakthrough Lattice-Boltzmann approach to push the limits of CFD. It allows you to realistically simulate highly dynamic or turbulent systems and fluid-structure interaction (FSI) without traditional meshing. Advanced behaviors such as liquid surface tension and free body motion let you analyze everything from a boat riding the waves, to oil sloshing in a gearbox, to an aircraft executing flight maneuvers, and much more.

KEY FEATURES AND BENEFITS

Fully Lagrangian Lattice-Boltzmann Solver
Compute a wide range of fluid flows without traditional meshing.
Multi-CPU Scaling
Solve XFlow simulations using anywhere from 8 to 512 CPU cores utilizing HPC or distributed computing.
Rigid Body Motion
Simulate fluid flow around controlled or free-moving solid objects such as valves, pistons, and marine vehicles.
Heat Transfer
Add conduction, convection, and radiation to the advanced physics already present in the XFlow solver.
Surface Tension Analysis
Accurately predict the shape of liquids in an air environment including waves, liquid droplets, and nozzle spray patterns.
Buoyancy Simulation (Boussinesq Approximation)
Simulate objects or gas bubbles floating in liquid environments.
Large Eddy Simulation
Directly simulate transient formation of turbulent eddies at smaller scales than traditional CFD.
Supersonic Flow
Analyze highly dynamic gas flows at the sound barrier and beyond.
Acoustics
Predict and filter noise from high-frequency pressure waves.
Fluid-Structure Interaction (FSI)
Couple XFlow with the explicit solver in SIMULIA Abaqus for true multiphysics analysis.

HOW CAN HAWK RIDGE SYSTEMS HELP?

Whether you’re designing industrial equipment or a new method of transportation, the Hawk Ridge team is here for you. Our engineers draw on more than 15 years of experience to help you size up the benefits of the Lattice-Boltzmann method in SIMULIA XFlow compared to traditional CFD.

  • Hawk Ridge Systems helped a customer evaluate the fairing on an unmanned aircraft to validate momentum loss drag results using Large Eddy Simulation.
  • Dynamic opening and closing of a liquid valve was benchmarked against traditional Navier-Stokes CFD to evaluate the accuracy of a customer’s previous steady-state simulations.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Does SIMULIA XFlow simulate the Navier-Stokes Equations?
No. SIMULIA XFlow solves the Boltzmann equations for fluids, improving performance and removing traditional CFD requirements such as a continuous fluid medium.
How is SIMULIA XFlow accessed?
The SIMULIA XFlow desktop application can be installed locally on Windows and Linux environments. Alternatively, you can launch XFlow directly from the cloud-based 3DEXPERIENCE platform.
What kind of computing power does SIMULIA XFlow support?
The base license of XFlow supports solving on up to 8 CPUs; this can be expanded to HPC and distributed computing environments utilizing up to 512 cores.
Is SIMULIA XFlow recommended for electronics cooling analysis?
While SIMULIA XFlow can simulate heat transfer, specialized features for circuit boards and related components are not available. SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation or SIMULIA CST Studio Suite would be recommended instead.
How does SIMULIA XFlow handle turbulent flow?
Large Eddy Simulation (LES) of individual turbulent vortices is enabled by a suite of models including Smagorinsky and Wall-Adapting Local Eddy (WALE).
Does SIMULIA XFlow support multiphysics applications?
Yes. SIMULIA XFlow natively supports rigid body motion of solid components, both free and enforced. Fluid-structure interaction for deformable geometry is possible via co-simulation with SIMULIA Abaqus.
