Flow Simulator model of a GE aircraft engine

Altair and GE have signed a multi-year software agreement making the former the exclusive distributor for GE’s Flow Simulator software.

The comprehensive engine system modeling software provides the functionality of numerous tools for fluid systems to enable multi-disciplinary analyses, which Altair will leverage its expertise in commercial software deployment to expand the technology’s adoption.

Developed internally by GE, Flow Simulator is a robust multi-grid based solver dependent on the continuity-based Newton-Raphson method, which encompasses several numerical techniques that conquer the robustness issues of stiff fluid system designs.
