Flux data sheet - .PDF file.

CEDRAT has signed a licence agreement with CD‐adapco. The agreement provides a licence of CD‐adapco’s file formats to CEDRAT and will enable stronger coupling between Flux, CEDRAT’s electromagnetics code, and STAR‐CCM, CD‐adapco’s flow and thermal simulation code.

According to Vincent Marché, CEDRAT’s marketing manager, this coupling will provide a solution to R&D team needs, enabling engineers to obtain the most accurate computations, allowing them to increase efficiency and lifetime thanks to a reduction in heat losses. High temperatures can reduce power and torque, destroy insulators and demagnetise magnets — this should also help to answer the general device size reduction, to make products cheaper and more compact.

This initiative is intended to build on the existing methods of file-based data transfer that exist today between the two codes. The development should improve iterative computations between the two codes. It connects large data exchanges from the electromagnetic losses computations in the Flux environment — which motor parts behaviour are temperature dependant — to the temperature distribution in the STAR‐CCM environment.

The solution will be presented at the next Flux Conference in October and will be available in version 12 of Flux at the end of November 2014.

For over 35 years CEDRAT has been acknowledged as the European leader in simulation technology.
CEDRAT offers a full suite of tools for the design, the analysis and optimization of devices and systems for a wide range of electrical and mechatronic engineering applications.
CEDRAT’s flagship product is Flux 2D/3D, a software suite that specializes in electromagnetic and thermal analysis for modeling and optimizing electrical devices such as motors, transformers, actuators and sensors. Flux software is also relevant to equipment that is used in electric-fields studies, or heat-treatment applications.
4 modeling and simulation tools, 11 international partners, 35 years of experience and more than 50 engineers, developers and consultants. CEDRAT S.A. develops and markets leading computer-aided-engineering (CAE) simulation tools. These tools are used by manufacturers to accelerate and manage precise design solutions for devices such as motors, transformers, actuators, and sensors. CEDRAT has developed GOT-It, for device-and-systems optimisation; InCa3D, for conductor impedance and near-field simulation and Portunus, for mechatronic system simulation.
