The Engineer Magazine Spotlights the Functionality of CONVERGE

As anticipation builds around the upcoming release of CONVERGE 2.3, Director of Marketing Rob Kaczmarek spoke with UK-based publication The Engineer about how the automated meshing function in CONVERGE actually works. PSA Peugeot Citroën also weighed in on how CONVERGE has improved their workflow. Check out some highlights from Chris Pickering’s article below.  “Some packages have scripted mesh generation, but the second you change one of the parameters that scripting is altered and you get some inaccuracies as a result,” Kaczmarek said. “With our approach, it doesn’t matter how many times the geometry is changed or moved the mesh remains consistent, …

CONVERGE Featured in Desktop Engineering—Tackling the Challenge of Mesh Generation Head On.

CONVERGE CFD was recently featured in an article in Desktop Engineering from contributing Editor Pamela J. Waterman. In the article, Waterman discusses some of the “best kept secrets” in CFD. CONVERGE was featured at the top of her list for how it, “…tackles the challenge of mesh generation head-on.” In her article, Waterman points out how CONVERGE “…uses Adaptive Mesh Refinement to completely eliminate the user time needed to generate a mesh, refine the mesh where it is needed (no need to judge where to increase density) or adapt to moving boundaries — all these steps are automatic.” Read her …


Argonne National Lab and Convergent Science Work Together to Optimize CONVERGE, Resulting in Faster Production Times and Better Engines

Researchers at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Argonne National Laboratory are partnering with Convergent Science, Inc. (CSI), to speed up a key piece of modeling and simulation software to ensure those cycles are used as effectively as possible, reducing product development time and resulting in better engines and savings for consumers. The scale of the speed gains were recently demonstrated when researchers ran the largest engine simulation to date on more than 4,000 computer cores. The research is part of Argonne’s Virtual Engine Research Institute and Fuels Initiative (VERIFI), which is working with CSI to optimize the company’s CONVERGE code, …


Argonne National Lab, Convergent Science, Cummins Featured in Engine Technology International’s Article “The Missing Link”

Wobble: it’s not the most scientific term to emerge from the field of mechanical engineering but it describes perfectly a particularly important event that no other word can. Important because it’s the phenomenon that, to a large degree, helps explain the minute variations between the cycles of an IC engine that have bedeviled engineers for years. Granted, one needs a huge x-ray machine and the world’s fifth-largest supercomputer (see Processing power) to witness it in detail, and then calculate and model its effects on the complex and explosive world of an injection-fed combustion chamber, but doing so gives a much …
