Wizards guide the simulation prep and algorithms control the process. New features include wall recognition and start-up of turbulence, mesh enhancements, and automatic convergence assessment. A Design Review Center allows comparing results of different simulations and easily sending 3D results to others for their examination. A Basic version calculates local wall roughness height and a diffusion coefficient to model transport of mass and offgassing of chemicals into fluids. An Advanced module allows transferring FEA loads from multiple time steps and expanded Joule heating of a conducting material subject to voltage and current. And a Motion module lets components move linearly, rotate, wobble (like a coin on its edge), and orbit (like an unbalanced ceiling fan). A variety of fluid-structure interactions and transient conditions can be studied.
