CFD Support Actiflow
Our CFD engineer has developed an automatic process that enables Lightyear engineers to perform simulations quickly and consistently. The existing simulation set-up was analyzed, after which some improvements were made. In this regard, collaboration with Lightyear’s engineers and with HPC specialists from Lightyear’s cloud computing partner was crucial. By looking at the wishes of the team and the possibilities of the cloud, a process has been set up in which Lightyear’s engineers only have to take minimal manual steps in performing these calculations.
For setting up this process, the experience of our CFD engineer with regard to various software packages, a Linux HPC environment and knowledge of scripting through bash and python has been of great importance. The new process offers the possibility to simulate new designs within hours, so that faster steps can be taken in the process. In addition, the new process can also be used for automated optimizations.
