CAESES® Free is a free version of the commercial CFD integration platform CAESES / FRIENDSHIP-Framework (FFW) which has been developed for simulation-driven design of flow-exposed surfaces. It offers comprehensive parametric CAD functionality, CFD integration and post-processing features. Feel free to use this edition even for commercial work without any limitation.
CAESES is addressed for:
- Users of both open source and commercial CFD codes to bridge the gap between geometric modeling, geometry variation and CFD analysis
- Developers of CFD tools and researchers in fluid dynamics to use CAESES® Free as their front end for code validation, result comparison and parametric studies of CFD settings and design variants
- CFD consultants to utilize CAESES® Free as a convenient environment to showcase the product improvements they could achieve
- CFD users to accelerate their CFD preprocessing tasks
- Entrepreneurs to generate new business by developing parametric models, optimization set ups and automation features and, thus, position themselves as consultants to users of the pro edition CAESES/FFW
- Anyone who is interested in parametric modeling for more complex free-form surfaces
