Caedium CFD Accelerator
A beta release of the on-demand Caedium CFD Accelerator cloud product, the first of two Caedium-based computational fluid dynamics (CFD) service products running on Microsoft’s Windows Azure cloud platform, is now available. It is a complete desktop CFD workflow environment with a graphical user interface integrated with OpenFOAM CFD solvers. Use is extended beyond the desktop to the Windows Azure cloud with on-demand access and pay-as-you-go billing. Examples of CFD models frequently analyzed with the software include airflow over a moving car or an aircraft wing, water flow around watercraft, and water flow through pipes. Beta users will have access to a free shared trial deployment for the first month of the beta program for initial evaluation. Beta users also may order a dedicated pay-as-you-go Azure deployment. Each cloud deployment supports queuing of simulation jobs for sharing across a project team.
