Nextflow Software launches Nextflow Studio, a software platform that covers the entire computational fluid dynamics (CFD) flow, from pre-processing, to computation and post-processing. This environment lets engineers manage easily their simulation projects and provides a graphical user interface (GUI) based on the latest software technologies.
The company launched the new software at the NAFEMS World Congress in Quebec City, Canada, on June 17-20, and is featuring live demos of its latest product.
Nextflow Studio enables users to accelerate the resolution of their field-specific design objectives.
- a unique environment for all Nextflow Software solvers to ease and accelerate the setup of simulations and the exploitation of results;
- an intuitive GUI that simplifies the preparation of simulation input data to reduce engineering time;
- geometry optimization tools and meshing tools adapted to the target solver to reduce simulation configuration time;
- computation management tools to reduce computation costs; and
- integrated analysis tools to accelerate interpretation of simulation results, with the capability to export to standard post-processing formats.
The solvers developed by Nextflow Software allow users to study complex phenomena (shocks, splashes, deformations, etc.) and simulate complex use cases that are either too difficult or too costly to set up and analyze with experiments.
CFD solvers developed by Nextflow Software do not necessitate manual meshing operations as volume meshing is automated. This allows engineers to spend more time on analyzing simulation results. The automatic and continuous coherency checking of simulation input data ensures that obtained results are reliable. The uniform distribution of workloads on processors allows to reduce computation time proportionally to available resources, whatever the required precision level.
Nextflow Software solvers can be coupled to finite element analysis (FEA) tools for fluid structure interaction (FSI) studies. Standard formats are supported for import of CAD geometries and meshes, and for export to external visualization tools. Intuitive and easy-to-use tools provide interactive assistance to users (especially for data setup) and ensure a quick ramp-up.
Nextflow Software is an Independent Software Vendor (ISV) based in Nantes, France.
