The next version of Symscape’s Caedium (v4) will allow users to exchange geometry and flow data with ixForten 4000 for an enhanced tensile membrane design process.
Using the upgraded software, users will be able to perform a CFD simulation of a tensile membrane structure and then export surface pressure coefficient (Cp) data for structural analysis in ixForten 4000. This development will allow ixForten 4000 users to perform non-linear stress analysis to better determine membrane displacement with more precise wind pressure loads than previously available, leading to more cost efficient structures and supports.
