- Problem dimensionality: one, two and three dimensions.
- Time dependence: steady state and transient processes.
- Grid systems: Cartesian, cylindrical-polar and curvilinear co-ordinates; rotating
co-ordinate systems; multi-block grids and fine grid embedding.
- Compressible/incompressible flows.
- Newtonian/non-Newtonian flows.
- Subsonic, transonic and supersonic flows.
- Flow in porous media, with direction-dependent resistances.
- Convection, conduction and radiation; conjugate heat transfer, with a library
of solid materials and automatic linkage at the solid fluid interface.
- A wide range of built-in turbulence models for high and low-Reynolds number flows;
LVEL model for turbulence in congested domains and a variety of K-E models, including
RNG, two- scale and two-layer models.
- Multi-phase flows of three kinds with a variety of built-in interphase-transfer models:
- Inter-penetrating continua, including turbulence and modulation;
- Particle tracking, including turbulence dispersion effects;
- Free-surface flows.
- Finite-volume approach on staggered or collocated grids, with 13 choices of
discretisation schemes for convection.
- Combustion and Nox models, with a range of diffusion and kinetically controlled
models including the unique Multi-Fluid Model for turbulent chemical reaction.
- Chemical kinetics including multi-component diffusion and variable properties.
Built-in interface to the CHEMKIN chemical database.
- Advanced radiation models, including surface-surface model with calculated view
factors, a six-flux model and composite radiosity model for radiative heat transfer,
known as IMMERSOL
- Mechanical and thermal stresses in immersed solids can be computed at the
same time as the fluid flow and heat transfer.
