ACUSIM Software has been acquired by Altair Engineering and the AcuSolve software is now part of Altair's HyperWorks product line. Click here to obtain latest information about AcuSolve.


Powerful and Easy Pre-Processing Modeling

AcuConsole™ is a powerful yet easy to use GUI-Based Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) pre-processor for AcuSolve™ and AcuDesktop™. It can work with very complex geometries, build simulations from CAD or Mesh and import 3D CAD models from ProE, Parasolid, ACIS, Discrete, Catia V5, or import an existing mesh in various formats. AcuConsole has a built-in automatic mesh generator with boundary layers and is capable of efficiently solving unstructured meshes with high aspect ratios and badly distorted elements commonly produced by fully automatic mesh generators on complex industrial geometries. These capabilities enable highly accurate results in greatly reduced solution times.

CAE Automation and Vertical Application Customization

Through an intuitive menu structure, AcuConsole helps the user fully set up a problem, generate an input file, and launch its solver. CAE automation is available through the Python scripting language, allowing users to customize menus and functions for specific applications.

Industrial-Strength Post-Processing Capabilities

AcuConsole also comes with an industrial-strength post-processor, an OEM-bundled version of FieldView from Intelligent Light. FieldView is one of the most widely used and powerful post-processors in the CFD industry. AcuSolve and AcuDesktop users can now interrogate and visualize complex flow simulations without leaving the ACUSIM product environment.
