What is a geometry database?

The starting point to conducting CFD simulations is to have a representative geometric model of the installation to be considered. Whether you import the geometry from files previously generated in CAD software or build the geometry in CASD, it will be stored in a geometry database for FLACS. A geometry database is an organised collection of all information about the considered geometry…

Working with a geometry database

Some installations, especially old ones, do not have any existing geometric (CAD) model in digital format. To be able to conduct CFD modelling for such installations you need to generate a representative geometric model. The most common way to create a new geometry is to build it manually based on all the information available, such as general layouts, drawings and…

How to define materials in a geometry

Materials in CASD are used to differentiate objects according to their type or their discipline. The different materials will have different colours which can be defined by the user. For a general description of the geometry database and how to work with it, please refer to the article What is a geometry database? and Working with a geometry database, respectively. Define a new…
