SimWorks Manager is a professional CFD software including a simulations manager specifically designed for the industrial process:
Latest release: 21.06
You can either download SimWorks Manager directly or update SimWorks to get a free 14-day trial licence, see the update section below.
SimWorks Manager is a professional CFD software extending SimWorks with additional functionalities specifically designed with the industrial process in mind. From model preparation to results analysis, SimWorks Manager is designed for handling multiple simulations at the same time. Reusing modelling parameters from previous simulations, the software helps you reduce the time spent setting up new simulations and provides an effective way to efficiently loop through design iterations, hence accelerating the entire development process.
SimWorks Manager allows the user to organise the simulations in sets of geometries and projects. With cut, paste and duplication capabilities, SimWorks Manager streamlines and speeds up the creation of simulation programmes. For a given geometrical configuration, SimWorks Manager offers the functionality to create simulation sweeps of different testing conditions with the click of a button.
SimWorks Manager is under active development and additional features will be added soon, please contact us for more details or to request new features, suggest improvements or to get support.
SimWorks Manager allows the simulation of the transport of a passive scalar. This can be used to study how a volatile substance spreads in a space subject to convection and diffusion by a flow field.
This approach can be used to check the spreading of pathogens and diseases indoor (like the COVID-19) and to check pollutant distribution outdoor. For example to verify the effectiveness of fumes extraction solutions.
The distribution of the passive scalar can be shown with isosurfaces of difference concentration levels.
SimWorks Manager supports transient simulations. This can be used with unsteady turbulence models, from URANS to LES and DES
Time dependent simulations allow to capture all the aerodynamic structures that evolve in time, like aerodynamic wakes. Knowing the level of unsteadiness of the flow provides a good idea of the overall aerodynamic stability of a design.
See the delta wing aerodynamics tutorial for reference about transient simulations
SimWorks Manager supports the analysis of the results of multiple simulations concurrently.
It is possible to create delta plots to see and evaluate the difference in flow fields between cases
Delta plots can be shown on movable 2D sections, which show the difference in the flow field surrounding the geometry, and directly on the 3D surface of the geometry
It is also possible to get numerical values and their local and average difference in certain areas of the flow field with the probing functionality which supports single point, line and a square probing
See the truck side skirts tutorial to see how to create delta plots
The new sweep functionality creates automatically a full sequence of CFD cases changing an individual parameter defined by the user
For example, the sweep functionality allows to create automatically an aerodynamic mapping of a given geometry
See the glider stall angle investigation tutorial to see how to create a sweep for a given CFD simulation
With an intuitive user interface and the capability of handling multiple simulations at the same time, SimWorks Manager is the ideal choice for companies who already use CFD in their development cycle but want to fully integrate it into their design process.
SimWorks Manager is also aimed at professionals who want to add CFD simulations to their services and engineering companies that want to include engineering simulations to their development process. It also comes with technical and engineering support.
Please contact us for more details and to get a free 30-day trial licence of SimWorks Manager.
Every company and each professional has different needs therefore we aim to provide bespoke solutions for our customers by tailoring SimWorks Manager to suit specific and advanced requirements.
Whether it is a different user interface, a specific application/model for advanced analysis or a bespoke post-processing feature, we aim to adapt and extend our software according to your needs. Being built on industry-standard OpenFOAM* capabilities, SimWorks Manager is capable of handling almost any CFD modelling needs.
Moreover, leveraging 20+ years of combined experience in design and simulations, we can help you fine-tune the setting and parameters to get the most out of your simulations.
If you have already installed SimWorks you can automatically update it to SimWorks Manager and activate a free 14 days trial licence which does not require any committment or payment details by clicking on the main menu Licence entry and selecting Upgrade… :
You will then be presented with a GUI showing all the required info to activate the licence. The next time SimWorks is started SimWorks Manager will automatically be enabled for the trial period, once that is expired it will automatically revert back to SimWorks.
We offer SimWorks Manager free for academic use provided that the user meets certain criteria, we also can offer extended free trial licences for other purposes, please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any queries.
