54th NIA CFD Seminar:
RECENT APPLICATIONS OF OVERSET MESH TECHNOLOGY IN SC/TETRA

Tomohiro Irie, Software Cradle Co., Ltd.
October 6, 2014, 1:00 pm, NIA, Rm 101
Hosts: Boris Diskin and Hiro Nishikawa (NIA)

Abstract:
Software Cradle has introduced overset mesh technology to SC/Tetra since 2007, and we are dealing with a lot of demands from industries using the technology. This is a necessary function for flow simulation with moving components in complex geometries, which is not uncommon in real products. SC/Tetra’s overset technology has been improved continuously, and is now able to be coupled with free-surface analysis, flow-structure interaction and dynamical moving components (6DOF). In the latest version, a special treatment for analyses of the flow in piston engines was introduced. The treatment achieves practical accuracy for mass conservation in the cylinder.

Speaker Bio:
Dr. Tomohiro Irie is Assistant Manager of Software Engineering Department at Software Cradle Co., Ltd. in charge of SC/Tetra‘s solver component.
