The Humble Delta Cp Plot

The Humble Delta Cp Plot

When a simulation completes, we want to quickly determine what the effect of our test was. How have the forces and flow metrics changed, and perhaps more importantly, where and why have they changed? bramble produces a detailed set of forces, flow metrics and...
How We Adopted Open Source CFD

How We Adopted Open Source CFD

Back in the early-2000s some of our longer serving (older!) staff, myself included, were working at British American Racing.  For those who may not know, this was a Formula 1 team that would eventually transition into Mercedes F1. We were getting into optimisation as...
Intelligent Mesh Settings

Intelligent Mesh Settings

Different workflows can require different mesh settings. Having to manually update these can be a pain, especially if you forget and need to re-run your simulation! Workflow specific mesh settings allow bramble to intelligently activate refinements so you don’t have...
Consistency is the Key

Consistency is the Key

We all know changes in mesh recipe and solver settings will invariable result in different CFD solutions.  Consequently, it is important to ensure consistency over the lifetime of a project. This is especially true for long running projects or projects with a number...
Save Time and Money with Mesh Cloning

Save Time and Money with Mesh Cloning

Testing geometries over multiple flow conditions is an effective method of producing more robust designs. Where these flow conditions are changes in boundary conditions, such as velocity or yaw angle, it is not necessary to regenerate the mesh for each test, which is...
