Altair and GE have signed a multi-year software agreement making Altair the exclusive distributor for GE’s Flow Simulator software. The engine system modeling software has a number of tools for multi-disciplinary analyses of fluid systems.
This software helped guide GE to design world record efficient gas turbines and the more advanced aircraft engines in the industry.
Developed internally by GE with a modern Graphics User Interface (GUI), GE’s Flow Simulator is a multi-grid based solver. It uses the continuity-based Newton-Raphson method, using several numerical techniques that conquer the robustness issues of stiff fluid system designs. It currently serves more than 1,500 users as a single-fluid system modeling tool across the aerothermal and combustion engineering design communities at GE.
