AutoSeal (HEXPRESS™/Hybrid)

HEXPRESS™/Hybrid includes the new tool AutoSeal that automatically creates surfaces to close holes and gaps for any given configurations. It both repairs tolerance gaps between non-conformal parts as well as topological holes such as bolt drilling. 

This automatic tool allows preparing a simulation-ready geometry in a few minutes when it usually requires weeks of engineering effort.

Where a skilled engineer typically needed one full week to close all the holes of the cabin space before, now this whole process was brought down to just about one hour with AutoSeal. And the robustness of the technology was definitely proven: They had a 100% success rate on 10 different vehicle models.

Distributed parallel version of HEXPRESS™/Hybrid

HEXPRESS™/Hybrid can now be launched on thousands of cores leveraging its distributed memory parallel mode with either Open or Intel MPI libraries. A 1 billion cells mesh can be generated in ~10 minutes.

Information for combustion table generation (FINE™/Open)

Specifications of the combustion table generation are now displayed in the graphical interface. The table types, and fuel and oxidizer settings used to generate the combustion table are directly available in the FINE™/Open interface. This information is also stored in the table file.
