Cradle Announces Release of scSTREAM and HEAT Designer Version 10

November 2012/ -- Software Cradle announces the release of scSTREAM and HEAT Designer Version 10 structured grid Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) Software . scSTREAM is the counterpart of Cradle's flagship unstructured grid, general purpose SC/Tetra CFD software. HEAT Designer is a specialized application of scSTREAM used for electronics cooling.

Version 10 contains many new features that provide structured grid users in architecture, civil engineering, HVAC, and electronics cooling enhanced functional capabilities usually reserved for unstructured grid applications. Some of the new features include:

• Direct import of the majority of major Native CAD formats into the scSTREAM and/or HEAT Designer V10 integrated preprocessor including CATIA, Pro/Engineer, SolidWorks, NX, SolidEdge, and Inventor. As always, IGES, VDAS, and ACIS formats are seamlessly imported.

• A new preprocessing option for scSTREAM that greatly enhances BIM (Building Information Model) by directly importing architectural data from Graphisoft ArchiCAD architectural design software into scSTREAM without going through an intermediate file. This includes automatic simplification of the data to adapt it for CFD, cleaning functions, and direct transfer of architectural information, and material and solar properties. scSTREAM also provides these capabilities for Revit.

• Expanded parts library including Peltier Devices, Heat Pipes, and new Air Conditioning (A/C) configurations.

• Feature expansion of moving objects which simulates moving objects entering and moving through the computational domain.

• Accommodates large models containing up to 1 billion elements using parallel computing and HPC (High Performance Computing) edition.

• An optional integrated optimization program called the Multi-Objective Genetic Algorithm, or MOGA, that focuses on optimization of multiple objectives while using a genetic algorithm.

• A heatpath viewer utility that graphically shows the path of heat flow. This greatly enhances post-analysis by visually depicting where the heat comes from and where it flows.

scSTREAM V10 includes many other enhancements that help make it well suited for addressing real world engineering challenges.
