Usability Improvements

  • The Leak Tracker tool is available at the bottom of the graphical screen for better visibility. You can locate holes or displacement gaps in the model by visualizing the route from an internal face to an external face of the component.


  • You can modify boundary and heat source conditions from a single PropertyManager, which accelerates the setup of the CFD analysis for large projects.

  • You can define goals for surface area and volume with the Equation Goal tool. You can add surface area and volume as reference geometries into the Equation Goal. The tool is located in the model View, at the bottom of the graphical area, improving its visibility.
  • You can specify ambient velocity via aerodynamic angles (angle of attack and angle of sideslip) instead of a 3D vector. This improvement makes it easier to perform a Parametric study.
