For numerical analysis, LABMCI has several computational fluid dynamics simulation software, structural analysis, chemical kinetics and combustion, as well as simulation programs focused on the automotive industry, the AVL stands out in this group of programs. The LABMCI has an academic partnership for use of this program.
The LABMCI has several computational tools for numerical simulation of combustion processes, internal combustion engines, vehicular aerodynamics, structural analysis as well as several programming languages (C ++, FORTRAN, etc.). The four main programs for simulation are:
- AVL – Advanced Simulation Technologies
- ANSYS FLUENT – ANSYS CFD
- Engineering Equation Solver
These programs are used by students, professors and researchers in their different research areas, at the Federal University of Santa Catarina.
In terms of computational resources for numerical simulations, in collaboration with the Combustion and Thermal Systems Engineering Laboratory – LABCET / UFSC, LABMCI has two DELL T7500 Workstations and an HP XW8600 Workstation, totaling 20 processing cores and 128 GB of RAM.
