IN-FORM allows the user to add new physical and numerical
features on a case-by-case basis. This includes the input
of problem-defining, solution-controlling and results-
presentation data using the VR Editor. The user can do this
by way of easy-to-write formulae which are interpreted by
the code which then performs the specified computation
MOFOR (MOving-Frame-Of-Reference) models flows induced by
bodies in motion. Uses for MOFOR range from the study of
rotating machinery to the air flow over a ski jumper to
help optimise posture for the reduction of drag and
therefore maximise jump distance.
PARSOL (PARtial SOLid) enables PHOENICS to provide accurate
flow simulations without the need to create time consuming
unstructured grids. This makes PHOENICS accessible to the
non-CFD expert as it obviates the need to learn the tools
to create such grids.
A guaranteed automatic convergence algorithm has been
developed and included in the latest version of PHOENICS.
Most CFD-code (ie not just PHOENICS) users have, until now,
had to adjust convergence and relaxation parameters to
achieve a converged solution. This development removes the
need to run a case overnight to find that it shows no sign
of convergence the following morning.
PHOENICS PLUS (GROUND coding) allows users to create
customised environments to suit specific needs. Where an
organisation does not have the resources, or inclination,
to undertake development CHAM consultants will use PHOENICS
PLUS to carry out the necessary work. If problems involve
unique or ground-breaking physics this may not be included
in the core of PHOENICS.
PHOENICS PLUS allows new physics to be added to augment or
replace standard definitions. IN-FORM achieves this on a
case-by-case basis whereas additions made using PHOENICS
PLUS are available for all cases.
