PDM Analysis ltd is pleased to announce the release of the new version v5.8 of software SCORG.
With this release, SCORG extends its capability to use OpenFOAM solver with fully parallel implementation for CFD analysis of machines such as Roots Blower, Vane Compressors and Expanders. New ANSYS FLUENT parallel UDF has been improved to enable reliable and fast calculation on multicore computers. The combination of analytical and differential grid generation results in the best numerical mesh in the market for rotary positive displacement flow machines with helical screw rotors or gears.
New features in v5.8 related to Geometry and Thermodynamic models are: geometry of roots blowers and geometry of screw pumps for thermodynamic calculation, rotor profiling for pumps and Roots blowers. Improvements have also been made in calculation of SCORG Thermodynamic Multichamber model for screw machines.
Release v5.8 also features new templates with capability of calculating bearing losses using GT-Suite solver from Gamma Technologies. GT-SUITE is used as a performance solver and allows calculation and presentation of results directly within SCORG GUI.
SCORG, can now be used on Microsoft Azure virtual machines with our brand new SCORG alto cloud platform. You will receive further information about this development in a separate email.
