Optimus interface for Ricardo Wave
30 April 2012
Noesis Solutions and Ricardo Software
Noesis Solutions and Ricardo Software have jointly announced the availability of a new Optimus interface for Wave, the 1D engine and gas dynamics simulation software package from Ricardo Software. From early concept studies through to detailed investigations of production engines, Wave is used throughout the engine design process. The Optimus integration component automatically extracts the parameters from any Wave model and can automatically parse Wave’s results to extract responses from both the ASCII and binary files.
‘Optimus is known for capturing and automating simulation workflows without any programming skills,’ commented Hans Wynendaele, CEO at Noesis Solutions. ‘With the new interface for Ricardo Wave, Optimus users can easily parameterise any engine model and automate the execution of advanced performance simulations. It frees engineers from repetitive tasks so that they can find better designs in a fraction of the time required with conventional methods. This approach strengthens manufacturers’ competitive edge by delivering the best engine design in the shortest time possible, while saving tremendously on engineering, manufacturing and material cost.’
