OOFELIE::UI - The User Interface


Intuitive Design Flow

OOFELIE::Multiphysics has an integrated industrial CAD/CAE user interface (UI) used extensively in the Aeronautics and Automotive industry. While featuring all elements for a professional CAE design, it takes an intuitive 5 step approach, presenting only the functionality you need at every step.


Intuitive Left-to-Right Design Flow

Use the full CAD interface for parameterized multiphysics modeling of your design. Link into the design flow by importing and manipulating files from various vendors (CATIA®, Solidworks®, STEP, IGES...).
Use the hierarchical UI to assign the different multi physical (multi-dependant, equation based) material properties to each component. Make use of a pre-defined material data base to increase your efficiency. Set loads and constraints.
Define the mesh of your geometry. Take the most accurate and efficient approach by using the full spectrum of mesh shapes (tetrahedron, pentahedron,hexahedron...), mesh orders (linear, quadratic) and mesh generation (Delaunay-Voronoi, Frontal...) methods. Use gluing and mesh contact algorithms to efficiently join separate meshed parts.
In the electro-thermal domain (example), you solve for the transient or static response of your parameterized system. OOFELIE will strongly couple thermal and electrical effects to better model Joule heating. Move from verification to design by linking to optimization scripts or to parametric analyses, design of experiments, multidisciplinary optimization,sensitivity & statistic analysis.
After simulation, examine your results in the solution tree of the hierarchical UI. The results can be 3D plots as well as animations and sound files of the multiple physical fields that are calculated! Finally results are easily exported to other tools for further post-processing.
