Velocity contour plot

10 © Fluent Inc. 5/10/ Introductory FLUENT Notes FLUENT v6.0 Jan 2002 Fluent User Services Center POLYFLOW  FEM solver for laminar, viscous flows for complex rheologies and free surface POLYFLOW Applications: Extrusion, coextrusion, die design Blow molding, thermoforming Film casting, glass sheet forming/stretching, fiber drawing Chemical reactions, foaming Viscoelastic flows (“memory effects”) Inverse Die Design: Determines die geometry based upon desired extruded shape. Requested part shape and calculated die lip shape for a rubber car door seal. Blow molding simulation of a gas tank using the membrane element.

11 © Fluent Inc. 5/10/ Introductory FLUENT Notes FLUENT v6.0 Jan 2002 Fluent User Services Center Icepak  IcePak is focused on electronics cooling design: Cooling airflow, heat conduction, convection and radiation heat transfer  The user interface and automatic meshing are tailored for applications such as: Cabinet design Fan placement Board-level design Heat sink evaluation Flow pathlines and temperature distribution in a fan-cooled computer cabinet.

12 © Fluent Inc. 5/10/ Introductory FLUENT Notes FLUENT v6.0 Jan 2002 Fluent User Services Center  Simplifies the design and analysis of ventilation systems  Accurate, quick, and easy-to-use design tool that empowers designers and professionals, without extensive backgrounds in computer applications, to utilize the powers of advanced CFD tools  Optimize your designs or pinpoint problems based on accurate predictions of airflow patterns, thermal conditions, comfort conditions, and/or contamination control effectiveness Airpak

13 © Fluent Inc. 5/10/ Introductory FLUENT Notes FLUENT v6.0 Jan 2002 Fluent User Services Center  MixSim is a specialized user interface that allows quick and easy set-up of mixing tank simulations.  The tank size, bottom shape, baffle configuration, number and type of impellers, etc. are specified directly.  The mesh and complete problem definition are then automatically created. MixSim  Other features include: Impeller libraries from leading equipment manufacturers Transient sliding mesh, steady-state multiple reference frame models Non-Newtonian rheology
