Altair HyperWorks is the most comprehensive, open architecture CAE simulation platform in the industry, offering the best technologies to design and optimize high performance, weight efficient and innovative products.
Traction-based, patented NuVinci® transmission is a continuously variable planetary (CVP) technology enabling performance and efficiency improvements for machines that use an engine, pump, motor, or geared transmission systems. Fallbrook Technologies has been working on improving oil flow inside the NuVinci products as it affects the transmission’s efficiency, durability, power, capacity, and cost. Altair worked with Amazon Web Services (AWS), a secure cloud services platform, to provide an integrated solution to Fallbrook including advanced GPU hardware, high-performance computing (HPC) and the nanoFluidX software through industry-leading workload management and job scheduler Altair PBS Professional™.
The webinar will begin by presenting FluiDyna GmbH and by giving a short introduction to the nanoFluidX (nFX) code. After that the attendees will get a more detailed description of the work flow, emphasizing the ultra-simple pre-processing capabilities of the HyperMesh 14.0.110 and upcoming SimLab 14.2, which allow particle generation with literally three clicks per element. Some details about the solver will also be presented, particularly pointing out the speed up the customer potentially gains in turn-around time for oiling simulations by using nFX on GPU’s. We shall also present the new ParaView 5.0.1 with special SPH features, as well as FieldView version (which should show up by the webinar). Finally, summary and licensing details will be provided for nFX.
Altair nanoFluidX is a particle-based (SPH) fluid dynamics simulation tool to predict the flow in complex geometries with complex motion. It can be used to predict the oiling in powertrain systems with rotating shafts / gears and analyze forces and torques on individual components of the system. Utilizing the GPU technology empowers high-performance simulations of real geometries.
