CAD Preparation for your CFD Simulation.
For numerical investigations, the geometry or design of interest, that is going to be analyzed has to be modified for CFD analysis. Depending on the used numerical analysis software, the CAD data preparation needs to be done carefully.
Holzmann CFD offers the re-creation, fixation, and simplification of your CAD model for numerical analysis. If the meshing tool from the open-source software toolbox OpenFOAM is used, well-prepared CAD data are essential to reach the mesh quality parameters.
Holzmann CFD uses different software packages to build your CAD model for your numerical analysis. The pre-processing of the CAD data, as well as the meshing step, are the most crucial operations during a CFD analysis.
Preferred CAD formats for repairing are STEP, BREP, and IGES files. STL files are possible but require much more investigation.
