Latest release enhances industry-leading capabilities and expands the analysis domain for ADS CFD 

Danville, Calif. - March 1st, 2018 - AeroDynamic Solutions, Inc. (ADS CFD) today announced the availability of ADS CFD 7.0, a significant update to its CFD solution suite.  Some major new features include:

  • Ludicrous Speed Resonant Stress and Aerodamping analysis for turbomachinery applications. Release 7.0 takes the speed and accuracy of aerodamping and resonant stress analysis up a notch.  With improved capabilities for aerodamping and flutter analysis calculation times can be dramatically shortened from a week or more, to turning around several calculations in 1 day.  
  • Exit Mass Flow Control.  New in Release 7.0, users will be able to specify an exit mass flow target.  Code LEO will then modulate the exit static back pressure until the flow rate is achieved.
  • Paraview Integration.  Release 7.0 also features improved integration with the open source visualization tool, Paraview (  By clicking a button, the ADS workbench can generate a 360 degree view, show slice views and blade views.
  • OpenMP integration.  Release 7.0 features the ability to apply additional threads to speed up the execution of a block.  Speedups of nearly 3X have been achieved for 4 threads.

  • User defined Turbulence Modeling.  New in Release 7.0 is the ability to add your own turbulent viscosity model.  Implemented as a dynamically load library, a user can develop their own turbulent viscosity module and replace the ADS provided one, simple as that!
