Conference update: 9th ESI OpenFOAM Conference (October 20th, 2021)

Prof. Gernot Boiger, our collaborator at ICP_ZHAW has recently participated in 9th ESI OpenFOAM Conference 2021 and talked about “A Massive Simultaneous Cloud Computing Platform for OpenFOAM”. This talk was basically about our OpenFOAM Kaleidosim platform (app.kaleidosim.com) and focused on some of its many exciting features:

• The instructive web-browser-based user interface (Web Interface);
• How to run and evaluate 160 simulation runs in 20 minutes.
•The Massive Simultaneous Cloud Computing (MSCC) feature which allows the orchestration of up to 500 cloud-based OpenFOAM simulation runs simultaneously;
• The Katana file downloader;
• Python based post-processing;

Announcement Alert : Conference (October 19th, 2021)

Do you want to learn more about the latest developments in Massive Simultaneous Cloud Computing (MSCC) platform Kaleidosim ? Then tune in to Kaleidosim‘s collaborative talk with Prof. Gernot Boiger and ZHAW_ICP at 9th ESI OpenFOAMConference.
Check out the conference here: https://www.esi-group.com/events/2021/9th-openfoam-conference .
October 20, 2021: 4.05 PM “A Massive Simultaneous Cloud Computing Platform for OpenFOAM” -Prof. Gernot Boiger  from ZHAW_ICP at the 9th ESI OpenFOAMConference 2021 online.

Feature update: Kaleidoscope (September 1st, 2021)

The R&D cooperation between ZHAW/ICP and KaleidoSim has resulted in the release of the latest Kaleidoscope feature within KaleidoSim cloud platform, advancing the benefits of MSCC (Massive Simultaneous Cloud Computing). Extremely large parameter studies consisting of 100s of OpenFOAM simulation cases can now be generated, run and evaluated simultaneously in the cloud. This capability was designed to produce very large amounts of simulation data in extraordinarily short amounts of time.

Feature update : Automate Paraview post-processing (August 15th, 2021)

Wondering how to automate Paraview post-processing using KaleidoSim cloud software ?

In this tutorial video, Prof. G. Boiger of ICP -Institute of Computational Physics , ZHAW -Zurich University of Applied Sciences, demonstrates how to activate Paraview’s ‘Python Trace’ function to record, modify, upload and run a Python script in the cloud. The script operated paraview in batch-mode and thus automatically visualizes simulation results and creates screenshots.

Successful 1st workshop held with Wagner International AG (May 6th, 2021-May 10th, 2021)

Simulation- based product Innovation and product development do not have to be time consuming and tedious.

We recently completed the first part of workshop held with Wagner International AG on “Using KaleidoSim to boost simulation in powdercoating“ -online, to help them make the most out of KaleidoSim, our flagship OpenFOAM platform that enables you to run hundreds of simulations SIMULTANEOUSLY.

Get your results within minutes and design quicker.

We are happy to report the results in the words of Eugen Loos, R&D Engineer & Project Leader, Wagner International AG .

“The three day workshop with the experts of KaleidoSim has opened up a wide range of options for our product development. Aided by novel, cloud-supported simulation technology, we are now finally able to visualise essential physical effects and phenomena. The simulation results are dynamically transferred to development. As a result not only costs but also development time for our prototypes is reduced significantly. And all that within an extremely short amount of time.”

Take a look at the happy faces from Wagner International AG who attended our ZHAW-supported workshop

Tutorial update: Motorbiker and 42 angles of attack using MSCC via Kaleidosim (March 15th, 2021)

Using first pimpleFoam for show then simpleFoam, the Motorbiker’s aerodynamic properties were investigated, courtesy of ZHAW/ICP. The mesh of this classic OpenFoam tutorial case was refined up to 1.6 Mio. cells. The angle of attack of onsetting wind-velocity as well as the whole flow channel was rotated over 42 different angles. The whole study comprising 42 cloud-based machines-16 cores each, took no more than 10 minutes to finish, thanks to MSCC Massive Simultaneous Cloud Computing functionality of Kaleidosim.
