Coupling between PAM-FORM and PAM-RTM: multiple part mapping
Coupling between PAM-FORM 2G and PAM-RTM is done through a .DSY file. Thus, pre-forming process is simulated with PAM-FORM 2G and resulting fiber orientations that will affect permeabilities are transferred to PAM-RTM model setup.

Model clipping feature in CFD-VisCART and CFD-GEOM
For better visualization of the geometry and mesh, a model clipping feature was introduced in CFD-VisCART and CFD-GEOM V2013.0. The following sections illustrate the usage and benefits of this feature.

Improve Productivity Using Scripts [Video Format]
As simulations become more integrated with the design process, engineers often spend time on repeated operations that do not contribute to their productivity. There is a need for tools that could capture, preserve and transfer the knowledge within the organization or...

Boundary layer meshing with CFD-ACE+  [video format]
The accuracy of a CFD solution is strongly dependent on how well the mesh resolves geometry and flow features. This is especially true for near wall regions (boundary layer) where viscous forces are not negligible compared to inertial forces.

How to check what software version you are running
There is a very fast and easy way to verify what software version you are running for your ESI CFD applications. You most likely know that this information is available for the GUI by clicking on 'Help → About ...', and for solvers by looking...
