Performance is always one of our priorities. That is why we emphasized our efforts on the reduction of the computation time. It has thus been decreased by 30% (on average) thanks to different optimizations and improvements of the code and algorithms.
Single and double precision
LBsolver can be used with single precision in order to reduce computation time (by 30% on average). But, since this approach cannot be used for all applications (e.g. aeroacoustics), double precision simulations are still possible.
New data recordings outputs
New variables can be recorded on volumes (e.g. Q-criterion) and surfaces (e.g. friction coefficient). RMS and squared parameters of all the variables are also available. Richer analysis are then possible without further post-processing.
This parameter is used to ensure the symmetry planes of the fluid mesh. Primary point coincides with a fluid node of the coarsest resolution domain.
Thermal simulations (beta)
A new thermal model is available in order to modelize natural and forced convection. Do not hesitate to try it and to give us your feedback.
