Flexible Automated Meshing Environment


Automated generation of high quality grids for CFD analysis.

AVL Approach

Within its flexible automated meshing environment (FAME™) AVL FIRE™ offers multiple options for automated grid generation enabling fast, reliable and accurate discretization of complex three-dimensional domains with or without moving system boundaries. All grids feature grid boundary layers. Grid refinement is performed either automatically depending on model curvature or on user request. Solution dependent adaptive grid refinement is available too.

Benefits at a Glance

  • Simple setup and fast execution
  • Applicable to all common CFD Tasks including moving boundary problems
  • Import filter for access data in standard CAD Data exchange formats and common native formats

FAME™ Hexa

From a numerical perspective, hexahedrons are the optimum element to discretize the 3D space of interest. The development of FAME™  Hexa was therefore driven by the desire to create a tool that generates computational grids assembled out of as many hexahedral elements as possible, while still supporting local grid refinement and enabling grid boundary layers.

Applying advanced hybrid grid generation techniques the solution offered today provides high quality computational grids for a nearly unlimited range of applications, fast, with low memory requirements and with little effort on surface/CAD Data preparation and repair.

FAME™ Engine Plus

FAME™  Engine Plus is a GUI Driven environment for setting up and executing the process of generating computational grids required to simulate flows in internal combustion engines. Linked to FAME™ Hexa it applies the settings of a preceding FAME™ meshing process to online adopted CAD data and generates fully automatically the grids necessary to simulate a desired crank angle range. This way FAME™ Engine Plus shifts the typically significant effort required for generating a simulation model from the user to the computer, giving the engineer the opportunity to focus on his actual task: analyzing and optimizing designs. To speed up the process FAME™ Engine Plus can be used in a distributed mode, utilizing a virtually arbitrary number of processors.
