ENGYS has released ELEMENTS 3.5.1, an open-source based computational fluid dynamics (CFD) software suite for vehicle design applications produced by Streamline Solutions LLC. This release also includes new versions of the add-on modules ELEMENTS-Adjoint and ELEMENTS-Coupled.
ELEMENTS combines two simulation environments in one package: a dedicated virtual wind tunnel wizard for modelling external vehicle aerodynamics and a general purpose CFD interface for solving other vehicle design applications (for examples, HVAC, in-cabin flows, aeroacoustics, etc). The default methodology and best practices for external vehicle aerodynamics provided with this version of ELEMENTS have been widely tested and validated to conform to the latest regulations on alternative drag prediction methods proposed as part of the Worldwide harmonized Light vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP).
ELEMENTS 3.5.1 is mainly focused on bug fixes and code refinements to remove known issues found in the previous release 3.5.0. The fixes cover all aspects of the product, including the graphical user interface, meshing, setup utilities, flow solvers and documentation. A complete list of changes and additions in this new version of ELEMENTS is provided as part of the Release Notes delivered with the software.
If not a user of ELEMENTS already, the company invites those interested to check out the ELEMENTS product page to learn more about the software or contact ENGYS to schedule a live demonstration and learn how several automotive OEMs, tier-1 suppliers and F1 teams are already benefiting from using the products.
