New Functionality in Version 4.2a

New Physics Interfaces

  • The physics interfaces for turbulent flow now includes the k-ω turbulence model.
  • A new Euler-Euler Model interface for modeling laminar flow of two continuous and fully interpenetrating phases.

Single-Phase Flow

  • A new boundary condition, Interior Wall, in the Single-Phase Flow physics interfaces. It makes it possible to define a wall condition between two fluid domains. This is especially useful to model thin walls as boundaries. You no longer need to define a solid domain with a wall boundary condition on both sides, which can result in a dense mesh. This boundary condition is also available in the Fluid-Structure Interaction multiphysics interface (requires the Structural Mechanics Module or the MEMS Module).
