For FlowVision 3.12.01 release we made a breakthrough in the development of processes in dispersed phases. As a result, it became possible to simulate the icing of surface. Today you can apply the both icing modes to your tasks - dry icing mode and wet one. What is the difference between these modes? How to simulate icing processes correctly? What results will be obtained in FlowVision? You will find all answers in this article.

A set of sensors is a measuring object which can be placed anywhere in the calculation domain.

Previously, to obtain a variable at a certain point of computational domain, it was necessary to create a small object with dimentions closed to the cell size and set a characteristic on this object. It became much more convenient with the help of sensors. You can simply select a point or even several points in space, create there the sensor set and receive data in one glo-file.

To obtain the exact solution in numerical simulation, the reference values should be set correctly. Find out from this article how to set the reference values and how they affect the accuracy of the solution. We also examined two cases that our users usually face. Forewarned is forearmed.

Today we will talk about minimization of the computational mesh in a two-dimensional calculation. In general, FlowVision is a three-dimensional CFD software. But the 3D calculation becomes 2D if  there is only one calculation cell in one direction. Unfortunately, two-dimensionality disappears when adaptation is enabled. User of FlowVision from JIHT figured out this issue.

Sometimes the situations appear, when the co-simulation may be interrupted for a number of reasons:

1. Lack of memory (both operational and physical);
2. Restarting the machine on which the calculation has been carried out.
3. The necessity  to stop the calculation for project modification.

If the simulation is carried out only in FlowVision, the problem is easily solved by continuing the simulation from the last save. In the case of a joint simulation, the procedure is more complicated.
