SmartCells™ – Enabling Fast & Accurate CFD

posted Jul 30, 2017, 11:15 PM by Songyi Han
This white paper introduces the concept of SmartCells™ in the context of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) simulation software. 
They exist in FloEFD™, the design-centric general purpose CFD software supplied by Mentor Graphics that is embedded in all the major CAD packages (Ref 1). 
This document will explain what they are, how they differ from other meshing approaches employed in the CFD industry, and their benefits to CFD users:

  • SmartCells are Cartesian based meshes that are typically 10 times smaller in size than traditional CFD meshes while providing the same level of flow field resolution and attaining high levels of simulation accuracy.
  • They employ numerical approaches and engineering models embedded within FloEFD that typically reduce the manual time spent by traditional CFD tool users in meshing their geometries by an order of magnitude on average thus dramatically reducing this historical bottleneck to CFD user productivity.
  • They ultimately allow for automated mesh generation because of their built-in artificial intelligence based on decades of industrial CFD simulation experience using engineering model data.
  • SmartCells deal with both the ubiquitous need for turbulent boundary layer simulation accuracy in all fluid flow processes while handling complex geometries which may have many fluid-solid control volume zones in one mesh SmartCell.
  • They lead to design engineer and CFD analyst workflow gains of typically x2 to x10 fold through the associated built-in pre-processing and user experience benefits inside FloEFD.
