Using a template CDL file for quick case set up in CFD-CADalyzer
If your simulations with CFD-CADalyzer typically include the same or similar type of physics, materials and boundary conditions then you can make the case setup process very efficient and quick with the use of a template file - a CDL file that includes the typical...

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.
