3D graphWe are pleased to announce the release of Flownex SE 2014.  This is a very exciting release for all of us involved in Flownex because it introduces a mix of advanced features and usability enhancements – we love better and easier.  We will be publishing more information about this release, as well as videos and webinars. While we set all of that up, we wanted to whet everyone’s appetite and give you a list of what we feel are the 10 most important enhancements.

  1. Rotating components, Swirl Boundary, and General Turbine and Compressor Models 
    A new library has been added which models rotating flow on a system level. Focusing on secondary flow and heat transfer in turbine engines, it includes all the components needed including compressors, turbines, seals, gaps, nozzles, and cavities. A complete library for Steam Turbine modeling was also added. 
  2. Importing and Geometries
    Users can read in 2D and 3D layout files in common formats and directly create Flownex models from the geometry. The model and results can then be visualized with the 3D geometry.
  3. GIS File Support
    When modeling systems that cover a large area, such as water or gas pipelines, the geographical data can be imported for display and to automatically include altitude into the model. 
  4. Connections to ANSYS Products
    Users can import 3D Pipe geometry as an ANF file, and connect to ANSYS Mechanical and ANSYS Fluent for co-simulation.
  5. Link to Mathcad
    Users can transfer parametric data to and from Mathcad worksheets
  6. Graphical Script Generation Tool
    Users can use Quick Script to create complex scripts to customize their processes or models without having to learn the full scripting language
  7. New Designer Tools to Quickly Model Common Systems.
    Designer tools atomically iterate on a user’s model to calculate unknown values for them. This release includes tools for calculating mass flow when only pressure is known at a boundary, automatically calculating steady state conditions in a two-phase tank, and a component designer that calculates input parameters for common components so that those components deliver the users requested mass flow.
  8. Five Additional Convection Models 
    Based on user input, five new models were added to the Dittus-Boelter correlation for calculating heat transfer coefficients: tube, shell-side single phase, shell-side horizontal tube condensation, ribbed wall channel, and channel with pedestals. 
  9. Exit Thrust Nozzle Added
    New model in subsonic and supersonic flow at the outlet of a flow network with gasses and superheated fluids
  10. Additional Enhancements:
    Support for miter bends in piping
    3D graphs
    Radiation supports multiple surface enclosures
    The range of methane two phase fluid was increased
    Support for 64 bit 
    Several more values can be changed during a transient solution
