WindSim 6.2 Released | Download your copy
WindSim 6.0 was launched this summer, a major software release with a new powerful CFD procedure including the GCV (General Collocated Velocity) solver. Now WindSim 6.2 has been released with further improvements to the GCV solver settings, yielding increased robustness and reduced execution time, and also including a parallel version of the GCV solver, see press release.

To demonstrate its superiority concerning robustness we have tested the GCV solver in challenging terrain situations, in total 40 simulations were executed in highly complex terrains. As seen in the below figure the new setting of the GCV solver in version 6.2 performed very well compared with the GCV setting used in version 6.0, and in particular against the Coupled solver, which is now outdated. Simulations are classified in three groups; Converged - where a physical solution is obtained, Diverged - where no physical solution is obtained and Undefined - where the solution has become stable, but not yet fully converged as damped oscillations might exist in areas with high terrain inclinations.
The GCV did not diverge for any of the 40 simulations in highly complex terrains

Often increased robustness has the disadvantage of increasing the execution time. However, this is not the case with the GCV setting in WindSim 6.2. On the contrary we have achieved a reduction in the execution time. In the below figure we have tested three models ranging from 0.8 to 1.8 million cells, in all cases the GCV setting in version 6.2 is the fastest solver.
Execution time
The GCV in version 6.2 is about twice as fast as in the earlier 6.0 version

WindSim 6.2 includes a report export feature, allowing export of a Microsoft Word document for easy editing. The site suitability has been improved with more extensive outputs.
