Streamline Solutions launches ELEMENTS v3.3.217th June 2021:
Streamline Solutions is delighted to announce the new release of ELEMENTS v3.3.2, an open-source based CFD software suite for vehicle design applications produced by Streamline Solutions LLC.
ELEMENTS combines two simulation environments in one package: a dedicated virtual wind tunnel wizard for modelling external vehicle aerodynamics, and a general purpose CFD interface for solving other vehicle design applications (e.g. UHMT, HVAC, in-cabin flows, aeroacoustics, etc). The default methodology and best practices for external vehicle aerodynamics provided with this version of ELEMENTS have been widely tested and validated to conform to the latest regulations on alternative drag prediction methods proposed as part of the Worldwide harmonized Light vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP).
ELEMENTS 3.3.2 is mainly focused on bug fixes and code refinements to remove known issues found in the previous release 3.3.1. The fixes cover all aspects of the software, including the GUI, meshing tools, setup utilities, flow solvers and documentation. A complete list of changes and additions in this new version of ELEMENTS is provided as part of the Release Notes delivered with the software.
