Key Features & Benefits
Import Geometry Data
FIRE™ M Users can directly import geometry data from various native and common exchange formats. Imperfect data can be repaired using the offered CAD Repair capabilities.
FIRE™ M offers two meshing tools, FAME™ Poly and FAME™ Block. Both tools allow the generation of boundary fitted meshes with grid boundary layers of user defined thickness.
FAME™ Poly is a fully automated grid generator. It can be applied to discretize geometries of all complexity levels. Additionally FAME™ Poly allows simultaneous meshing of multiple domains.
FAME™ Block is an interactive grid generator, enabling users to generate 2D and 3D block-structured grids of highest quality.
Setting up a simulation model in FIRE™ M is very easy, regardless of the complexity of the problem. The user assigns equations and material data to each individual domain. Property data for a large number of fluids and solids are available in a property database.
The post-processor of FIRE™ M offers displaying data in tables, graphs, plane and surface plots. Streamlines and droplets can be visualized too. Post-processing can be done interactively or based on pre-defined templates. Templates can be used in order to automatically generate problem specific reports.
Minutes of meshing time for a polyhedral grid of an intake port with local refinements and user-defined grid boundary layer.
Polyhedral grid with embedded block-structured turbine and compressor wheels all connected in a conform manner.
