Upfront CAE-System Empowering Simulation

 

CAESES® is the free version of the commercial CFD integration platform FRIENDSHIP-Framework which has been developed for simulation-driven design of flow-exposed surfaces.

CAESES® addresses 

  • Users of both open source and commercial CFD codes to bridge the gap between geometric modeling, geometry variation and CFD analysis
  • Developers of CFD tools and researchers in fluid dynamics to use CAESES® as their front end for code validation, result comparison and parametric studies of CFD settings and design variants
  • CFD consultants to utilize CAESES® as a convenient environment to showcase the product improvements they could achieve
  • CFD users to accelerate their CFD preprocessing tasks
  • Entrepreneurs to generate new business by developing parametric models, optimization set ups and automation features and, thus, position themselves as consultants to users of the Pro Edition of CAESES®, the FRIENDSHIP-Framework.

CAESES® Forum

Check out the community forum for CAESES®-related questions and support issues. See also the PDF tutorials that are shipped with the software. This video section gets updated regularly with new tutorials.

 

Project Exchange

Naturally, projects created in CAESES® can be exchanged with other CAESES® users. Projects from FRIENDSHIP-Framwork can also be read by CAESES® (automatic conversion). Here is a summary of project exchange among our different product editions:

Reasons to upgrade to FRIENDSHIP-Framework:

  • Automated and unlimited generation of design variants for DoE studies
  • Optimization algorithm library (single and multi-objective)
  • SSH Resource Manager for configuring remote or distributed cluster computing
  • Batch mode for specialized and automated workflows, e.g. for using other external optimization software
  • Professional and timely support from FRIENDSHIP SYSTEMS and our agents
  • File compatibility and free exchange with professional users

We believe that providing a free edition will facilitate the dissemination of simulation-driven design to the wider engineering community. All of the buzz about up-front simulation and optimization is not just hype, but providing the right tools within streamlined processes remains a challenge. At FRIENDSHIP SYSTEMS, we are dedicated to providing best-in-class tools to make this a reality.
