New NOGRID points software release 6.1.0

27 June 2016

The release NOGRID points 6.1.0 is launched! Beside stability and usability improvements this release contains lots of new features. As usual the user can find all new features and changes in the corresponding release notes in the online help.

The following list contains some new features:

  • Fully automatic adjustment of the finite point density to the geometry and to the thickness of the fluid including detection of gaps and small parts.
  • VRML format was implemented as a new output format usage within the keyword SAVE_format.
    The VRML (short for Virtual Reality Modeling Language) is a standard file format for representing three dimensional vector graphics. Accordingly it is only available for three dimensional models. In FPM the VRML format has been extended to additionally store data describing the transient nature of typical flow simulations as well as physical data specified by SAVE_ITEM and SAVE_ITEM_BE statements..
  • Dry Run for boundary elements was implemented. This launches a dry run over the given time period considering all move and active statements. This new feature helps to check if all boundary movements are correct and if the boundary elements are activated or deactivated at the right time.
  • Inflow boundaries during simulation can now be activated during simulation.
  • The recently added support for a coupled pressure-density model has been further improved.
