Evolution of the S60 V8 Supercar Aerodynamics

By Scott Burch, CFD Engineer, Garry Rogers Motorsport After such a successful debut season with the Volvo in 2014, we were left feeling very confident with the aerodynamics of the S60 V8 Supercar. Obviously the other manufacturers were confident that we had done a good job too because in 2015, no less than three manufacturers elected.. read more →

Caelus v6.10 released

In keeping with the April/October bi-annual release schedule, the next major version of Caelus, 6.10, was released today. We’ll continue to stick to bi-annual releases until at least 7.04 in April of 2017. Efforts continue to be put toward robustness and performance, with attention directed toward the linear solvers in this release. The new preconditioners/smoother.. read more →

Pointwise V18 Now available

A major new release of Pointwise for CFD mesh generation is now available for download and production use. It includes the biggest change to our core meshing technology since the addition of T-Rex for boundary layer resolving hybrid meshes in 2007. Specifically, you now can: generate quad-dominant surface meshes extrude unstructured hexahedral layers for boundary.. read more →

Caelus 6.04 released

The next major version of Caelus, 6.04, was released today. We’ll continue to stick to bi-annual releases with 6.10 coming in October. Much of the effort this release was spent overhauling interpolation schemes. Here’s a brief list: Restructuring of interpolation schemes (central and upwind) to use consistent limiting Overhaul of limiters to ensure TVD compliance.. read more →

Deciding between Open Source and Proprietary CFD software

Companies are deploying open source CFD software in a range of different ways. Although we know of no formal measures available, it seems from anecdotal evidence that it’s use is growing. We often encounter companies in the process of either making the decision to switch to open source CFD software or after the decision has.. read more →
