The Immersed Boundary Approach to Fluid Flow Simulation

The immersed boundary (IB) method, available through an add-on module for ANSYS FLUENT 12.0 software — jointly developed by ANSYS, Inc. and Cascade Technologies dramatically reduces the amount of time needed for fluid flow simulations and provides fast results by directly addressing the challenges associated with complex or dirty geometry requiring CAD cleanup. Since multiple geometries can be analyzed quickly, IB is especially useful as a preliminary design analysis tool for identifying candidates for further higher-fidelity analysis.
