Phoenics, CFD Software for Thermal Design Engineers
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.
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:
1. Inter-penetrating continua, including turbulence and modulation;
2. Particle tracking, including turbulence dispersion effects;
3. 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.
