Cedrat has released Flux version 10.4, a finite element method (FEM)-based software that simulates physical data for electromagnetic and electromechanical phenomena.

This allows users to run laboratory experiments and then collect the response data for their ideas.

Users can prototype virtually on their PC computers, saving time and money with each idea.

Flux applications now contain a unified and scriptable interface.

This scripting capability which is called Pyflux is a combination of both java and python, and allows users to control any aspect of the modelling process from start to finish.

Microsoft Excel for instance can be used to configure the details of a model, control a set of chosen inputs and then record the outputs of each experiment.

The results can then be graphed automatically in Excel or in Flux depending upon the desired result.

Flux V10.4 contains several improvements in data processing, allowing for dramatic reductions in computation time.

One area of improvement pertains to the pre-processing of the data and the formation of the solution matrix.

The second area of improvement pertains to parallel computing.

Flux now allows a user to select the number of the cores that Flux will use for the simulation; users can choose from one core to the maximum available on the given computer.

This release of Flux V10.4 now allows 2D, 3D and Skew applications to be directly coupled for time transient simulation control with Matlab/Simulink.

Flux is the only FEM software to provide this versatile coupling between the device behaviour and the drives and controls.

This capability allows for a more effective overall idea validation as it considers the device as if it truly was in operation.

Several devices with thin walls or plates are better suited to be modelled by shell elements instead of volume elements.

These elements can have material properties and physics phenomena distributed within according to the appropriate response.

Certain applications within Flux V10.4 now allow for shell elements to be directly connected to an external circuit.

Flux now contains the following new capabilities: Local Error Maps to review the effectiveness of a chosen mesh distribution; import of 2D Curves to directly compare solutions with measured data or other solutions; unit control to convert solution data into a more preferred unit; when using symmetry, the geometry can be re-constructed to show the full-scale model; solutions can be shown in a variety of 3D Curves with adjustable legend values; animations can be created when displaying a series of desired results; and reports can be automatically generated which reflect the full modelling process.
