Advanced Physical Models
The challenges of reality
In an internal combustion engine, compressor, or gas turbine, complexity reigns supreme. To obtain accurate results, your CFD software must contain robust physical models, and it must couple those models so that it can account for the fact that in many systems multiple physical processes occur simultaneously.
Many options to meet your needs
CONVERGE includes state-of-the-art physical models for a wide variety of phenomena, including chemistry, turbulence, multiphase fluid flow, spray, and radiation, and it automatically couples these models so you don’t have to. If you’re looking for a shorter runtime, you can choose one of CONVERGE’s simplified combustion models. If accuracy is paramount, CONVERGE’s detailed chemical kinetics solver will help you obtain the results you need. For turbulence modeling, you can choose from a host of both RANS and LES models. For spray modeling, CONVERGE can capture physical processes from liquid injection and spray breakup to drop/wall interaction and evaporation. CONVERGE also includes several volume of fluid modeling options to simulate multi-phase flows.
Our software engineers are constantly adding and refining the physical models in CONVERGE, and we partner with other organizations to ensure that the physical models in CONVERGE are always state-of-the-art. For example, we’re in the midst of a multi-year collaboration with IFP Energies nouvelles to update and add combustion, spark, and aftertreatment models to CONVERGE. We continue to push the envelope to ensure that CONVERGE can deliver accurate, predictive simulation results in the shortest possible time.
