Engrana Utilizes SpaceClaim in CFD Analysis - Case Study
Engrana utilizes SpaceClaim® as a key tool for preparing solid geometry for CFD analysis.
Clients typically supply CAD files of solid geometry that often contain many details that are not relevant to the flow analysis. Engrana uses SpaceClaim to de-feature and simplify the solid geometry, as well as to decompose the geometry in order to produce high-quality hex-dominant meshes. Additionally, SpaceClaim is used to extract flow volumes from the solid geometry. Before SpaceClaim, geometry de-featuring was left mainly to clients, and clean up was often a difficult, iterative task.
