Tuesday, 11 September 2012

CONCORD, MA, and HUNTSVILLE, AL, September 11, 2012 – SpaceClaim the leading provider of flexible and affordable 3D for engineering design and manufacturing, and Simerics, Inc., creators of the 3D CFD simulation tools Pumplinx and Simerics-MP for high fidelity virtual testing of complex fluid systems, announced today a direct integration between SpaceClaim Engineer and PumpLinx/Simerics-MP.

PumpLinx and Simerics-MP provide unsurpassed speed, accuracy, and numerical strength in simulating the heat transfer and fluid dynamics of complex systems. PumpLinx focuses on fluid pumps, motors, valves, compressors, and cavitation. Simerics-MP offers the same core strengths (e.g., automated meshing, speed, accuracy and physical models) for multi-purpose applications. “The integration with SpaceClaim Engineer provides an ideal tool for our customers to prepare complex geometry for our CFD solutions.” said Sam Lowry, President of Simerics. “The combination is extremely cost effective, easy to use and deploy.”

PumpLinx and Simerics-MP set-up and simulation times are typically an order of magnitude faster than other options on the market with no compromise in accuracy. The predictions consistently match physical hardware test results within experimental error. “Coupling the direct modelling capabilities of SpaceClaim Engineer with the CFD simulation strengths of PumpLinx/Simerics MP provides the design engineer a cost-effective, comprehensive CAE design and testing solution,” said Rich Moore, VP of Business Development, SpaceClaim.
