CD-adapco, a provider of CAE software focused on CFD (computational fluid dynamics), has signed a development agreement with JSOL, authors of the JMAG electromagnetics code. The agreement is focused on developing co-simulation methods in the domain of coupled & thermal electromagnetic simulations.
The partnership was started in 2013 when establishing a data transfer process between company simulation codes, passing electromagnetic loss distributions and component temperature distributions. This new agreement builds on this process and will allow a tighter coupling to be achieved, the company states.
“We are very pleased to be partnering with CD-adapco and to introduce co-simulation methods between these best-in-class technologies,” said Takashi Yamada, manager, Electromagnetic Engineering Group at JSOL. “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.”
The first release of a program developed by both companies is expected to release in 2015.
