January 24th, 2017 - After taking a hiatus from blogging while we dealt with "too much to do and not enough time" syndrome, we're back!  2016 was not an idle year at ADS CFD and here are some of the things we've been doing:
  • Released version 6.8
  • Added some serious experience to the team
  • Completed the SBIR phase II work on Flutter and Aerodamping analysis
  • Improving the parallel efficiency of our multi-threaded solver from 2.5X to 2.9X for 4 processors
Also we wanted to share with you some of the items we are working on 2017:
  • Aerodamping and flutter analysis in the design cycle
  • New technologies like real gas and new turbulence models
  • Improved 3rd party software integrations
  • User defined functions
  • GPGPU support with OpenACC
  • New turbomachinery classes
