CAESES® is a flexible CAD
platform for fast and comprehensive design studies with simulation
tools. Integrated capabilities for CFD automation and shape
optimization make it an all-in-one design tool for simulation
In traditional CAD tools, the parametric controls are often not efficient and the models are not robust during design studies where geometry needs to be generated fully automated. This is exactly where CAESES® comes into play to drastically accelerate your design process with dedicated capabilities.
Explore and Find Optimal Designs Much
CAESES® also contains capabilities for automation of simulation tools, and integrated strategies for parameter studies and advanced optimization. Together with the variable CAESES® geometry, this allows you to efficiently investigate large sets of new design candidates with your simulation package of choice – in shortest time!
CAESES® is used in various industries, typical areas of interest include ship hulls, turbomachines, ducts and manifolds, engine components, aerodynamic bodies, amongst others. CAESES® is suited for both internal and external flow applications, and it is available for Windows and Linux.
Create smarter parametric geometry for simulation with fewer parameters and with more flow-related control! CAESES® gives you specialized CAD for CFD that is geared towards generation of design variants.
All parametric models in CAESES® are ready for automated meshing and CFD analysis. The geometry is clean, closed and colored in terms of their boundary information. Save time with one-time pre-processing that gets automatically applied for all new design candidates.
CAESES® allows you to integrate and automate your CFD or other simulation software. With this, you can analyze a new design candidate with a single click. Any external tool that can be triggered by means of a batch mode can be immediately integrated and coupled to your geometry model.
Design Exploration and Shape Optimization
Once your geometry is ready and your CFD package is integrated, you can directly run design explorations and shape optimization. CAESES® provides a set of methods for the automated creation of design candidates so that no external optimization software is required.
In addition to the parametric modeling capabilities of CAESES®, you can make use of morphing and shape deformation techniques. These methods are suited for fast shape optimization of existing geometries such as given STL data. This greatly complements the CAD functionality of CAESES® and provides you another tool for the optimal design of your product.
Optimization with Adjoint CFD
The use of adjoint CFD methods has been getting more popular in recent years. As an answer to this, CAESES® allows you to couple the results of adjoint CFD with the geometry parameters of your model. This brings down the number of considered parameters to run faster shape optimizations.
CAESES® is a completely command-based platform where the commands are triggered in the background of the graphical user interface. However, all commands can be directly accessed by yourself to fully script, automate and customize the use of CAESES®.
No time to learn a new software? The variable and robust CAESES® models can be wrapped into an easy-to-use interface for non-experts of CAESES®. Use simple sliders and buttons to control your model, export geometry or even run full optimizations.
We have prepared a showroom with web apps where CAESES® runs in the background. All examples given in our showroom are created with the desktop application of CAESES®. This work is still in a beta phase with rather basic models, but you can already try it out.
