INTRODUCTION TO ICEM CFD

ICEM CFD is primarily a mesh generation tool. There is no CFD solver included; it is designed to be used with existing solvers. It is also not limited to CFD meshing; FEA and EMAG etc are also possible. As a general rule if you need a mesh for any type of simulation ICEM CFD can make it. There are many modules to ICEM CFD, most are mesh generation but there are complete systems for special applications as well as post processing (for CFD only at this present time but this may change).

THE ICEM CFD MODULES


Here are the main ICEM CFD modules, there are more than this but these are the primary ones to focus on. There are a lot of them, its not that simple to explain how they all interact but I will give it my best shot as well as explaining how they appear on the price lists and what a typically installation contains. Please visit www.icemcfd.com for full details on each module.
