AcuNexus is a preprocessor specifically developed for AcuSolve models. AcuNexus relieves CFD analysts from time-wasting non-value addition tasks through its three unique capabilities.
- Geometry-independent, re-usable Abstract Models have been used to define and capture CFD simulation parameters.
- Processing CAD model directly avoids geometry conversion and cleanup efforts.
- Automatic mesh creation gives consistent mesh quality independent of user skills.
About Novus Nexus™
Novus Nexus™, Inc. provides software and services to support Simulation-Based Design (SBD) via its unique "abstract modeling technology" with current emphasis on CFD applications.
“AcuNexus is a great way for users of HyperWorks to access the incredible benefits of using abstract modeling to define their CFD simulations with Altair’s CFD software AcuSolve. The automation from CAD models to running on a cluster is incredibly beneficial. They are going to love it.”
–Bruce Webster, President & CEO
Key Features & Benefits
Automation of CFD simulation process
Automated simulation processes assure consistency in results, reduce the potential for human error.
Geometry independent abstract models
Because abstract models are fully independent of shapes, they become truly reusable. They not only capture valuable simulation know-how, but also ensure that results are comparable and best practices are followed.
Assured and consistent simulation quality
Applying the same abstract model for a specific type of simulation assures that the results are of a constant quality which is necessary to make the right design decisions
Model authoring and use separable
While it is recommended that CFD specialists author and test abstract models, the utilization of abstract models does not require any CFD competence. This makes it possible for all engineers throughout an engineering enterprise to initiate CFD simulations creating quality simulation results when needed for decision making.
