HiFUN is a state-of-the-art, general-purpose CFD solver that’s robust, fast, and accurate, providing aerodynamic design data in an attractive turnaround time. Its usefulness stems from its ability to handle the complex geometries and complicated flow physics in a typical industrial environment. Using unstructured data capable of handling arbitrary polyhedral volumes gives HiFUN the ability to simulate complex geometries with relative ease. Plus, the use of a matrix-free implicit procedure results in rapid convergence to steady state―making the solver both efficient and robust.
The accuracy of HiFUN has been amply demonstrated in various international CFD code evaluation exercises such as the AIAA Drag Prediction Workshops and AIAA High Lift Prediction Workshops. HiFUN has been successfully used in simulations for a wide range of flow problems, from low subsonic speeds to hypersonic speeds.
Simulation and Innovation Engineering Solutions - Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) has redefined the aerodynamic design in the 21st century. The advancements in the CFD algorithms coupled with the availability of faster computing platforms have primarily contributed to this paradigm shift. Exploiting these advancements, Simulation and Innovation Engineering Solutions (SandI), resulting from the research initiatives at the Computational Aerodynamics Laboratory (CAd Lab), Department of Aerospace Engineering, Indian Institute of Science (IISc), has evolved a robust, fast and accurate CFD tool, High Resolution Flow Solver on Unstructured meshes (HiFUN), for use by the aerodynamics community. Using the CFD tool HiFUN, SandI offers high standard CFD services to both the aerospace and automotive industries. The user friendly CFD tool, HiFUN, scaling over several thousand processor cores, offering CFD solutions in very short turn around times, is also available to the CFD community at highly competitive prices
