Analytical Methods, Inc. (AMI)

[index] [up] [down]

AMI has a web page at

AMI was incorporated in 1971 to conduct research and development in
aerodynamics and hydrodynamics for government and industry.  Since
then AMI has developed a series of robust CFD codes that can be
applied to a wide range of practical problems.  AMI also markets and
provides technical support for some CFD codes written by others under
cooperative agreements with the original authors.  AMI headquarters
is located in Redmond, WA.  The Arlington, VA office specializes in
hydrodynamic applications of CFD technology.  AMI has marketing and
support agreements with companies in Europe, Asia, and Australia.
Some of the codes available from AMI include:

-VSAERO: A full configuration, subsonic aeroynamics analysis method that 
        solves the linearized potential flow equations.  VSAERO uses 
        piecewise constant singularity strengths on surface panels to 
        represent arbitrary three-dimensional configurations.  Boundary 
        layer calculations can be performed along on-body streamlines and 
        the resulting boundary layer thicknesses can be used to iteratively 
        correct the inviscid flowfield (using surface transpiration).  
        Compressibility corrections are available within the program 
        for higher subsonic Mach number cases.  Wake geometry is determined 
        by an iterative wake shape calculation procedure.  Special purpose 
        modules such as; FSWAVE, ROTOR and PROPFAN expand VSAERO's 
        capabilities. These modules calculate the nonlinear hydodynamic 
        wave effects on surface piercing vessels, helicopter rotor/fuselage 
        interactions and propeller/fan performance, respectively.

-FSWAVE:  A free-surface module developed for VSAERO which uses 
        desingularized source panels raised above the free water surface 
        combined with normal VSAERO (source and dipole) panels on the ship 
        hull surface to predict the steady flow past submerged or floating 
        vehicles.  Provisions are made for predicting the change in the 
        draft and trim of a ship resulting from its forward speed, to model 
        the flow past a transom stern, to model the flow past a ship 
        traveling in shallow water, and to model the flow past lifting 
        surfaces near a free surface.  The program satisfies the nonlinear 
        boundary condition on the free water surface.  This is done in an 
        iterative manner, where during each iteration the linearized 
        solution about the flow resulting from the previous iteration is 
        computed using an approach similar to that originally developed by 
        Dawson. The first iteration solves for the flow linearized about 
        the free stream flow.

-USAERO: This program calculates the transient aerodynamic 
        characteristics of complex configurations in arbitrary motion.  
        It is based on a time-stepping procedure which allows relative 
        motions of configuration components.  USAERO simulations include 
        manuevering aircraft, gust response, rotor/body interactions and 
        stores separation from aircraft.  Special application modules FPI 
        and FSP couple with USAERO to provide flight-path integration 
        calculations with six degrees of freedom and ship motion calculations 
        with nonlinear free-surface simulation.

-MGAERO: A 3-D Euler method for computing flow about arbitrary 
        configurations in the subsonic through supersonic flight regimes.
        It uses a multigrid approach with an equally-spaced Cartesian 
        mesh structure including local refinement.  Swept, unswept and 
        rotated grids may be used to develop local computational domains 
        which may be overlapped with either the surface or other multigrid 
        levels.  The ease of geometry and grid input allows for rapid 
        turnaround of results for complete aircraft, including nacelles. 

-OMNI3D: A color graphics visualization program which displays simulation 
        results in 3-D and arbitrary 2-D slices.  It shows surface pressure, 
        velocity and Mach number contours on the body and in the flow field, 
        streamline and boundary-layer parameters along on- and off-body 
        streamline trajectories and wake geometry data.  Time steps and 
        iterations may be animated or stepped through.  OMNI3D's mouse-driven 
        interface and fast graphics permit rapid assessment of results on 
        complex configurations.

-ICE: This code calculates particle trajectories in the vicinity of an 
        arbitrary aircraft for use in icing and sand-ingestion analyses.  The 
        efficient trajectory calculation and prescribed velocity field result 
        in a very fast calculation.  ICE reads the aircraft geometry and 
        flowfield velocity from an OMNI3D graphics file.

-XFOIL: An interactive program for the design and analysis of subsonic 
        airfoils.  It consists of a collection of menu-driven routines which 
        perform functions such as; viscous (or inviscid) analysis of an 
        existing airfoil, airfoil design and redesign by interactive 
        specification of a surface speed distribution, airfoil redesign by 
        interactive specification of new geometric parameters.  XFOIL is 
        based upon a linear-vorticity stream function panel method, coupled 
        to a two-equation, lagged dissapation integral boundary layer 

-MSES: A coupled viscous/inviscid Euler method for the analysis and 
        design of multi-element (and single-element) airfoils.  A 
        streamline-based Euler discretization and a two-equation integral 
        boundary layer formulation are coupled through the displacement 
        thickness and solved simultaneously by a full Newton method.  MSES 
        is capable of multi-point optimization of single- and multi-element 
        airfoils.  The full Newton solution method of the solver permits 
        effectively "free" calculation of the flowfield sensitivities to 
        predefined element shape deformation modes and element translation 
        and rotation modes.

-MISES: A coupled viscous/inviscid Euler method for the analysis an 
        design of cascades.  The internal formulation of this code is 
        much like that of MSES's.

-CAMRAD II: An aeromechanical analysis of helicopters and rotorcraft that 
        incorporates a combination of advanced technology, including 
        multibody dynamics, nonlinear finite elements, structural dynamics 
        and rotorcraft aerodynamics.  For the design, testing and evaluation 
        of rotors and rotorcraft, CAMRAD II calculates performance, loads, 
        vibration, response and stability.

-INCA: A compressible Navier-Stokes flow solver with turbulence and 
       chemistry modelling options.  An advanced solution procedure is
       used to solve the equations on multi-block, body-fitted, 
       finite-volume computational grids.  Subsonic, transonic, 
       supersonic, and hypersonic viscous flows can be calculated for 
       complex geometries.

From Eric J. Fuller /
Date: Wed, 5 Nov 1997

AeroSoft currently markets and supports the state-of-the-art, computational fluid dynamics code, General Aerodynamic Simulation Program (GASP). GASP is well suited for a wide range of fluid dynamics applications, and in particular for military applications due to its extensive thermo-chemical library. GASP's thermo-chemical library allows users to model complex fluid dynamic phenomena including frozen, equilibrium, and finite-rate chemistry as well as non-equilibrium thermodynamics. The extensive variety of physical models incorporated into GASP provides a complete tool for modeling complex three-dimensional steady or time-dependent flows throughout the performance envelope. Because of the broad flexibility inherent in this software, and its wide acceptance and use by the defense industry, GASP is an ideal target for the scalable parallel computing environment.

AeroSoft's next generation of simulation tools is based on an unstructured finite-volume formulation. In the General Unstructured Software Toolkit (GUST) the majority of physical modeling capabilities currently distributed with GASP are also supported. Both the structured and unstructured packages share a common library of routines used to calculate such quantities as thermodynamic and transport properties, inviscid fluxes, and source terms for the finite-rate chemical reactions. GUST is capable of accurately simulating time-dependent problems whose domain can be described with a single grid and single connectivity array. The unstructured code is highly optimized for vectorization on Cray supercomputers and parallelization via decomposition on distributed memory multiprocessor architectures.

If the objective is to model shocks and detonations in complex 2-D
and 3-D geometries, the FE approach is NOT the only way to go.
We (Combustion Dynamics) developed an Euler code using FCT 6th
order in a rectilinear grid. Complex solid shapes can be defined
in the calculation domain. We then detect all solid surfaces and
use Reimann solvers across the boundary and impose free-slip
conditions at the surface. The benefit being that the whole
problem setup only requires several minutes... really :^) and 
you do not need complex grid generators. For a detonation model,
we currently have one-step and two-step combustion models.

For equilibrium or chemical kinetic modelling of shocks and
detonations (i.e. ZND profile, CJ parameters, reflected shocks, etc.)
you can let your big cheese (Geraint) know that a beta version of
"SuperSTATE" will be heading his way shortly (depending on your
definition of short :^)  ).

Gridgen is capable of building multi- or single-block grids, abutting
or overlapping blocks, surface or volume grids, and 2D or 3D grids.
Gridgen consists of two codes, Gridgen (interactive) and Gridgen3D

Gridgen is a visually oriented and interactive code in which user
control is maintained through menu button selection, mouse
point-and-click, and occasional text input.  On-line help may be
accessed anywhere within the code, providing both specific and general
information to facilitate code usage.  A User's Manual is also
available with sections covering the theory, how-to, and a tutorial.

The Gridgen process begins with import of the geometry model about
which the grid is to be generated.  The geometry model may be imported
in a variety of formats including IGES.  Imported geometry may be
supplemented by geometry created in Gridgen.  Next, the user
interactively creates the curve, surface, and volume grid components.
Curves are constructed first as free space or model-constrained curves
of various mathematical forms.  Grid points are distributed along the
curves using any of several clustering functions that allow for
clustering anywhere along the curve's length.  Surface grids are then
initialized automatically after the user selects the curves that
define the surface's perimeter.  Surface grid point refinement may be
achieved by applying a suite of techniques from Gridgen's broad
algebraic and elliptic partial differential equation functionality.
Volume grids are constructed in a similar manner, by interactively
selecting the surface grids that comprise the block boundary.  Volume
grid points are initialized automatically and may be refined by
accessing Gridgen3D, a 3D partial differential equation code run in
batch mode.

and INCA analysis codes are included in Gridgen.  These interfaces
allow users to set solver-specific boundary conditions on the surfaces
of the blocks in the system.  The final products of Gridgen, the grid
and connection/boundary condition input decks, can then be exported in
the exact form required by the flow solvers.

Gridgen runs on all Silicon Graphics workstations including those
with 8-bit graphics.

Now 11 years old and 300+ users strong, Gridgen development and
support today is maintained by its two original authors, John
Steinbrenner and John Chawner, of Pointwise, Inc., Bedford, Texas.

FLOTHERM is designed to provide an analysis tool for all aspects of
thermal problems arising in electronic equipment.

It is particularly powerful in cases where convective cooling is
domonant or critical. It provides complete analysis of the flow of
cooling fluid (usually air) simultaneously with thermal analysis.

FLOTHERM handles thermal and fluid dynamic behavior for:

* 2D and 3D
* steady and transient
* laminar and turbulent
* forced and natural convection
* convection,conduction and (to an extent) radiation.
* conjugate heat transfer

FLOTHERM is based on techniques of CFD, specifically the 
Finite Control Volume approach. 

* It operates in cartesian coordinates
* Calculation is performed in a rectangular cuboid solution domain
* Solution requires calculation throughout the domain of the variables:

- fluid (air) velocities in the x, y and z directions (u,v and w)
- fluid static pressure (p)
- temperature of fluid and, if required, in solid regions (T)

The variables are in general functions of x,y and z, and time t.

Technical Director : Dr. J-M. Marchal
Customer Support Manager : Mr. B. Hocq
Business Manager: Mr. Y. Rubin
Product Manager: Mr. T. Marchal

The Polyflow s.a. company  -

Polyflow S.A. is located in Louvain-la-Neuve in Belgium and has sales and
technical support offices in the USA, Japan, Korea Taiwan, the Czech
Republic and Israel.  The company, founded in 1988, accelerates technology
transfer through research and development of new software capabilities and
cooperates with universities and research groups to remain at the forefront
of technology in the area of flow modelization and advanced numerical
methods.  It provides industrial technical centers and research and
development laboratories with the latest progresses in finite element
simulation methods in  a user-friendly environment.

Polyflow is the leader in simulations of the processing of complex
materials in industrial flows and is resolutely oriented towards the
industrial applications and the design and understanding of processes where
viscous flows play a major role under isothermal and non-isothermal
conditions, such as flow of plastic, rubber, glass or food stuff.

To date, POLYFLOW licenses have been acquired by more than 155 companies
and academic centers throughout the world, distributed between Europe,
North America and Asia (Japan and Korea mainly), where Polyflow has a
leading position in the field of computer aided processing in the plastics
and chemical industry.

A group of Ph.D. and highly skilled engineers provide consulting and
maintenance activities to all users and customers.  They don't hesitate to
travel and to visit customers in order to establish a relationship based on
confidence and user satisfaction.

Product names:

The main product is the POLYFLOW package, which comprises its own mesh
generators, parameters input module, the solver and graphical
post-processor.  Several modules are available for the solver such as the
Viscoelastic or Blow Molding simulation capabilities and for interfaces
with existing pre- and post-processors, such as Patran, I-Deas and more.
Third-party products such as the Polycem CAD/mesh generator product and the
CFView-PF graphical post-processor are also available with POLYFLOW.


The POLYFLOW package runs on most platforms, from Unix workstations
(Silicon Graphics, IBM, Hewlett-Packard, Sun, DEC), up to major
supercomputers, such as Convex or Cray computers.

Presentation of the company's activities and strategic vision

The POLYFLOW product is international by nature and distributed worldwide
to major plastics, rubber and resins producers, glass industries and
plastics and rubber transformers in the fields of construction (e.g. window
profiles), automotive industry and consumer goods (e.g. rubber profiles,
gas tanks, seals, bottles with handles) and medical supplies (e.g.
catheters), among others.  The market for POLYFLOW is distributed almost
evenly between Europe, where Polyflow S.A. markets its product, North
America (through a distrbutor) and Asia (also through distrbutors, mainly
in Japan, Korea and Taiwan), and new markets begin to emerge such as
Australia and China.

Among the typical customers of POLYFLOW thus far are companies like Daikin,
Solvay, Glaverbel, Dow, General Electric, Allied-Signal, Owens-Corning
=46iberglass, Sumitomo, Mitsubishi Chemical, the tire industry, to name a
few.  For its work in the numerical modelling of fluids in industrial flows
to provide a tool for a better understanding of the physics of the process
and the optimization of the geometry and operational conditions, Polyflow
S.A. has been awarded in 1990 the Gold Prize for Technological Innovation
granted by the Walloon Region.

POLYFLOW is already sold in large industrial groups on the three main
geographical areas, and the company plans to reinforce its activities in
the field of consulting for smaller size companies who do not wish to
maintain permanently a study group but would certainly benefit from the
numerical simulation capabilities offered by POLYFLOW and its experienced
team of engineers, without having to invest in the acquisition of the
program or initial training in this technology.  In this way, Polyflow S.A.
will be able to make POLYFLOW simulation available to a larger number of
companies and providing an answer to day-to-day industrial problems,
especially in the extrusion and blow molding processes and for flows in the
confined domains of extrusion equipment.

The goal of the Polyflow company is also to solve industrial problems,
participate in a larger acceptation of Computer Aided Processing in the
industry and highlight the important savings for industries through the
reduction of costly trial and error procedure; these savings may come from
less manufacturing and testing of new dies, the reduction of idle time for
the production line and wasted material, which is often not (easily, if at
all) recyclable, another ecological aspect more widely accepted nowadays
than ever before.
