Caelus 6.04 released

0 Comment

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
  • Updates to pressure and density-based compressible solvers
  • New combustion solvers
  • New gammaReTheta transition, kOmegaSSTDES and DDES and SA-VLES turbulence models

The other news is there is now a publicly available source repository to enable better community collaboration:

https://bitbucket.org/appliedccm/caelus-contributors

There is a release notes PDF available on the download page with more descriptions. http://www.caelus-cml.com/download/

If you’re not already familiar with Caelus, you can read more about it on the website. Its free and open-source. The file formats are compatible with OpenFOAM but there have been many improvements to it such that it is now moving independently in its own direction.

We are happy to answer questions, technical or otherwise, by email: [email protected] or also follow Caelus on twitter @caelus_cml

Applied CCM is currently the maintainer and main developer of Caelus. If you’re interested in porting or developing your own application to Caelus, we’ll be happy to provide guidance. If you’ve developed a solver or model that you would like to include in Caelus check out the contributors repository. Any and all external contributors copyright will be kept in their contributed source files.
