What is Next Generation CFD?

January 21, 2019

Let’s get right to it: it’s called next generation CFD because developers have actually beaten the program into an engineering workable process where you can take your model and you can change various geometric parameters.

Join us on this brief 5 minute journey as we walk through the capabilities of CFD over the years and discover where we are now and how we’ve gotten here.


If you’ve been working in CFD for lots of years, these are exciting times. Changing geometry has always been difficult. But now you can parameterize many geometric variables and optimize to a solution, optimize to a temperature, optimize to a velocity, optimize to a chemical reaction capability. And it works. That’s really what next generation CFD is about. We’ve really sort of crossed over to a new method.

Now we understand that there’s still uncertainty and doubt, that someone says, oh this is easy, you can do it, but if you look behind the curtain, there’s 15 engineers with massive experience banging away on it. But what we what to emphasize is it doesn’t take a huge team and months to do it.
