Posted By: Ulrich Heck
Date:Thu, 11 Nov 2010, 10:32 a.m.

DHCAE Tools announced that the latest version of the company’s meshing and preprocessing tool CastNet 2.3 is available now. The new release of 2.3 CastNet includes the following additional features:

- Additional solvers for OpenFOAM®, in particular conjugate heat transfer solvers: Compared to the manually case setup, the setup for conjugate heat transfer problems is considerably simplified: Parts of a CAD assembly can be picked directly in CastNet and the fluid and solid region settings can be assigned directly. Local schemes, solution or material settings can be associated with the regions. The complete case and directory setup are conducted automatically.

- Support of OpenFOAM® version 1.7: CastNet now supports the latest OpenFOAM® version provided by OpenCFD.

- Increased functionality: CastNet 2.3 provides access to more schemes, solver settings and material properties.

- Neutral file support: Beside the cas/msh-file export, meshes, patches and regions can be exported to other CFD solvers (e.g. Code Saturne) by using the neutral file export.
