United Kingdom,United States : CD-ADAPCO inks collaborative development deal with JSOL

July 21, 2014

The major privately owned CFD focused provider of Computer Aided Engineering software, CD-adapco , has inked a collaborative development deal with JSOL, the authors of the JMAG electromagnetics code, to co-develop joint simulation methods in the domain to coupled thermal & electromagnetic simulations.

The two sides forged the partnership in 2013 when setting up a data transfer process between their simulation codes, passing electromagnetic loss distributions and component temperature distributions.

The collaborative deal builds on this current process and will enable a tighter coupling to be accomplished.

The performance of parts within most electromagnetic devices are temperature dependant hence finding the final 5% of an optimum design calls for the co-simulation of such processes. Doing so within a productive climate will release the final 5% to product designers.

An initial release would occur in 2015 and example problems are now being tested.

CD-adapco Senior Vice President Product Management, Jean-Claude Ercolanelli, said : "Enabling the co-simulation of both thermal and electromagnet phenomena using best-in-class tools will allow users to truly optimise product designs. This collaboration builds on the existing relationship and data transfer methods already being used between our flagship product, STAR-CCM+, and JSOL's JMAG code"

Takashi Yamada, Ph.D., Manager of the Electromagnetic Engineering Group at JSOL, added : "We are very pleased to be partnering with CD-adapco and to introduce co-simulation methods between these best-in-class technologies. We hope that together we can provide smooth and reliable multi-physics/multi-disciplinary simulations with STAR-CCM+ and JMAG for that will benefit our joint customers."
