CONSELF Overview

What is CONSELF?

CONSELF is a cloud-based simulation software which allows users to exploit Finite Element Analysis (FEA) and Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) to improve the design of their products by minimizing drag and fluid dynamics losses, maximizing heat exchange performances, increasing efficiency, estimating pressure loads, evaluating components shape deformation, verifying material resistance, calculating natural frequencies and modes, and more.

CONSELF can be used across a range of industries, including aerospace & defense, automotive, construction, consumer goods, energy, healthcare, chemical, and industrial equipment.

Challenging for those new to CFD like me, but super-amazing customer service!

Being able to create a new design on CAD, and then CFD test it, is, while expensive for a small business like mine, much cheaper than making a prototype and then performing wind/water tunnel testing. When I compared my results to other wind/water tunnel test results, I found good agreement, which gave me a lot of confidence in the CONSELF results.

I use CONSELF to perform small simulation, with low computational cost.

Great and practical

Extremely usefull and cost-optimizing.

Carry out a simulation project that seldom crosses our way without having to adquire a new software.

Pros

I needed a lot of help, but was able to produce some great quality results. LOTS of options to choose from on geometry, mesh and CFD configurations. Customer support was above and beyond, 5 stars plus! If you are an inexperienced user like me, they will get you up and running.

Cons

Sometimes the system crashed a little more than I expected, but CONSELF never charged me for those runs.

Pros

One of the most interesting characteristics of the software is the simplicity and the immediacy with which the application can be used by everyone, with a simple interface. Dedicated tutorials are present and are very useful because introduce the user step by step to the various features of the application. The revolutionary point is that even someone with little or no experience in the CFD field can run a complete simulation in few steps. The results obtained in my experience are very good and reproduce the reality. One of the positive points of the application is surely the availability of the CONSELF teamwork to give advice and help you in case of need. Moreover, the flexibility to modify the CFD code, to create particular boundary conditions by request is certainly a strength of CONSELF. Furthermore, periodical software updates, which improve the application, are continuosly released.

Cons

The presence of some bugs, above all in the mesh phase creation, represent a negative point that can slow down the analysis, but are solved with the following application update. For a user with a certain experience in the CFD field, the impossibility to modify the code, working on the numerical and algebraical methods or other specific parameters can represent a downside. Furthermore, only the residual chart is present and in some cases, it is not easy to know when to stop the simulation looking only at this one; maybe a monitor chart should be added.

Pros

It is a user friendly software, and it is possible initialize a simulation in a few minutes.
The results are availables in a few minutes.

Cons

The meshing and post-processing tools need to be developed, due to the low level of the tools it is no possible to perform a complex problem.

Carry out a simulation project that seldom crosses our way without having to adquire a new software.

Pros

The practically unlimited computing/meshing power without having to invest in hardware or licenses. This allows saving money when there are no simulation projects (in my case).

Cons

Some logical limitations in the complexity of the physic models included. I work with CFD, and there are related physics included in other commercial packages that would come very handy (such as particles trasport, spectral behaviour of glasses, etc)
