Cadence Design Systems, Inc. offers performance and accuracy for multiphysics simulation with the launch of the Cadence Fidelity CFD Software, a suite of computational fluid dynamics (CFD) solutions for multiple vertical markets, including automotive, turbomachinery, marine, aerospace and others. Fidelity CFD introduces a next-generation flow solver featuring high-order numerics, scale-resolving simulations and hardware acceleration.

Building upon the expertise and technology gained from the NUMECA and Pointwise acquisitions and organic computational software expertise, Fidelity CFD unites all the technologies a CFD engineer needs to simulate the performance of multiphysics systems in a streamlined workflow, the company notes.

Included in Fidelity CFD are several specialized flow solvers for marine and turbomachinery applications, as well as general-purpose flow solvers for a range of flow types. With Fidelity CFD, engineers can address wind noise around road vehicles, expand the flight envelope of next-generation aircraft designs, optimize the power generated by wind and gas turbines, and cut fuel consumption of marine vessels. In particular, Fidelity CFD software’s unified mesh generation technologies from NUMECA and Pointwise delivered critical capabilities to a major aerospace customer.

“Fidelity CFD significantly improves fluid dynamics performance and accuracy across all industry verticals,” says Tom Beckley, senior vice president and general manager of the Custom IC and PCB Group at Cadence. “For advanced applications that need to accurately model turbulence—including automotive, turbomachinery and aerospace applications—the Fidelity CFD software’s next-generation flow solver opens new opportunities for customers to rapidly garner unprecedented engineering insight into the performance of their systems.”

Fidelity CFD software’s next-generation, high-order flow solver with its simulations of fluid turbulence has demonstrated the ability to predict aerodynamic drag on an automobile more accurately than a traditional CFD solver, according to the company.
