AVL FIRE™ M

Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) Simulation Solution Supporting the Development of Conventional and Electrified Powertrains

What is FIRE M?

AVL FIRE M is a multi-domain simulation software, which allows users to compute simultaneously non-reacting single phase flows, heat transfer, and solid temperatures in systems without moving boundaries.

FIRE M as of today includes the following components: Computer aided design (CAD) data import, CAD repair workflow, grid generation, model setup, job submission, and post-processing.

FIRE M users can directly import geometry data various native and common exchange formats. Imperfect data can be repaired using the offered CAD repair capabilities.

FIRE M offers two meshing tools, FAME Poly and FAME Block. Both tools allow the generation of boundary fitted meshes with grid boundary layers of user defined thickness.
