What is Altair nanoFluidX?
nanoFluidX is a particle-based hydrodynamics (SPH) simulation tool to predict fluid flow around complex geometries under complicated motion. It can be used, for example, to simulate oiling within conventional high-performance or electric vehicle powertrain systems comprising rotating shafts or gears, and analyze forces and torques on individual components of the system. In addition, sloshing can be predicted in tanks experiencing transient motions.
Conceived and optimized for use on clusters of Graphical Processing Units (GPUs), the software is extremely fast. For such typical gear-train applications, without the need to simplify geometries, the code can run an order of magnitude faster than a Finite-Volume code.
