HELYX-Coupled is an extension module for HELYX and ELEMENTS featuring the following solver components:
- Fully implicit, pressure-based, block-coupled solver for incompressible and compressible flow applications in the sub-sonic, transonic and supersonic regimes.
- Fully implicit, density-based, block-coupled solver for compressible flow applications in the sub-sonic, transonic and supersonic regimes.
The coupled solver technology in HELYX-Coupled has been extensively tested and validated to simulate a wide range of devices, including vehicle external aerodynamics, projectiles, turbomachinery, etc. The block-coupled approach provides considerable benefits over equivalent segregated solvers in terms of convergence speed and robustness, making this add-on a must when turnaround times are critical.
