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, because it is created during the runtime and rejuvenated with each time step.”
PSA Peugeot Citroën has been using past iterations of the package for more than four years and the group’s manager for the modeling of energetic and combustion systems, Clément DUMAND said this self-meshing capability has substantially improved productivity.
