Structure

This version of the code solves the single- and multi-fluid/component Navier-Stokes equations with addition of various models to account for fluid flow with complex physics ubiquitous to specific industry verticals, like oil & gas, microfluidics, etc. This version of the code uses multiblock grids as well, in both the IST/BMR and the BFC contexts, and is parallelized on HPC systems using MPI. TransAT Multiphysics© is an upgrade of TransAT Multiphase©, in that the multiphase flow module is incorporated here, too, with all its modelling features.

Complex physics models

TransAT Multiphysics© deals with intricate fluid-flow situations involving multi-components, conductive, convective transfer, reactive flows, microfluidics flow, Non-Newtonian flows, sedimentation, hydrates, porous media; see detailed list. Expand
