Release of GAMBIT 2.2 takes CAD cleanup and CFD meshing to a new level

Fluent : 15 December, 2004  (New Product)
GAMBIT 2.1's semi-automatic Cleanup tools have been enhanced now in v2.2. Fully automatic cleanup options are available for the most critical bottlenecks like slivers, short edges and sharp angles. A new "Cleanup Duplicate" geometry functionality has been added helping to provide full Cleanup toolkit for rapid geometry conditioning. New smoothing and enhanced "Healing" operations also continue to produce higher quality geometries. Holes can easily be covered with an extended wire frame operation and flow domains can be created using the new, fully automatic, multi-volume stitch algorithm.
Fluent Inc. the worldwide leader in computational fluid dynamics, CFD, announces the release of GAMBIT 2.2, a major upgrade to Fluent's geometry and mesh generation software. This version provides several new key functionality benefits to CFD users:

Improved Geometry Construction and Clean-up Tools
State-of-the art Meshing Size Functions
Improved Quad paving and Boundary Layer Meshing

GAMBIT 2.1's semi-automatic Cleanup tools have been enhanced now in v2.2. Fully automatic cleanup options are available for the most critical bottlenecks like slivers, short edges and sharp angles. A new "Cleanup Duplicate" geometry functionality has been added helping to provide full Cleanup toolkit for rapid geometry conditioning.

New smoothing and enhanced "Healing" operations also continue to produce higher quality geometries. Holes can easily be covered with an extended wire frame operation and flow domains can be created using the new, fully automatic, multi-volume stitch algorithm.

GAMBIT 2.2's Meshing Size Function feature has been praised by many beta testers as the leading mesh distributing technology on the CFD market. With a drastic speed increase and a new exciting "Meshed" Size Function, Gambit 2.2 provides a high quality mesh on virtually any geometry model. In addition, several quality and flexibility enhancements have been added to the Boundary Layer mesher and the code's unique Quad Paver. Antonio Bennardo, an engineer from EniTecnologie in Italy comments "I was impressed by the speed-up of the Size Function in Gambit 2.2. Besides, the unstructured quad mesher has been improved resulting in a mesh with better size transition and quality."

Erling Eklund, Fluent's GAMBIT Product Manager notes that, "Besides our standard QA testing, Gambit 2.2's file import, healing, cleanup and size function capabilities have been thoroughly tested on an additional 40-50 challenging industrial geometries. Our aim is not only to improve efficiency in CFD preprocessing but also to provide higher quality products."
