Supported AcuSolve Entities

Entities used to set up a case to run a CFD analysis using AcuSolve.

Contains the physical description of the case, for example, laminar/turbulent and numerical parameters, such as convergence tolerance.
Define the frequency of different outputs: Derived Quantity Output, Nodal Output and Restart Output.
Components with Fluid and Solid card images are grouped in this folder.
Components with Inflow, Outflow, Wall, Slip, Symmetry and Far Field card images are grouped in this folder.
Components With No Card Image
Components with no card image will not be exported with the solver deck. By default, all of the components will not have a card image. You have to choose the appropriate card image for the component and the component will be moved to the Surfaces or Volumes folder accordingly.
Nodal Boundary Condition
Define boundary conditions on nodes apart from surface boundary conditions.
Contains material definitions.
Body Force
Define gravity and heat source for volume components.
Periodic Boundary Condition
Define periodic or axisymmetric boundaries along with the transformation definition.
Reference Frame
Define rotational reference frame for the model.
Mesh Motion
Define translation and rotation for the mesh.
Emissivity Model
Define emissivity model for radiation surface.
Multiplier Function
Define multiplier functions (Constant, Piecewise Linear, Cubic Spline, Piecewise Log Linear) and utilize multiplier functions to ramp up supported parameters, for example angular velocities of reference frame.
Parameters can be utilized to run solver parameter based studies.
For example, if you want to run a series of simulations with inlet velocity values of 0.5 m/s, 0.75 m/s, 1 m/s respectively, you can define a parameter on inlet velocity with the desired values. Using the HyperStudy Job Launcher DOE studies can be performed.
