Analysts and engineers have run computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulations using Ansys Fluent for decades. Additionally, the concept of setting up and running a parametric Fluent model is not new. However, additional tools were typically needed to drive the parametric CFD model. Now, a fully parametric model can be set up, run, and post-processed entirely within a single window. This Fluent Parametric Workflow enables users to streamline robust workflows, perform trade studies, support quality by design (QbD) initiatives, and more all in one place.
The advantages and capabilities of the Fluent Parametric Workflow, which don’t require additional tools or scripting, are:
Interpreting the massive amounts of data that the DOE provides typically involved reading the DOE results in yet another optimization-centric tool. Investigations such as relationships between output and input parameters, sensitivity of the output parameters with respect to each input parameter, and how well a response surface (or a metamodel) represents the design space are now possible and can be read with one click in optiSLang for detailed post-processing. This includes the creation of a functional mockup unit (FMU), which is the building block for system-level modeling.
In summary, the new Fluent Parametric Workflow opens the door for:
