in:Flux Feature improvements:

Version 3.0 is a major update to the in:Flux solver, to improve its capabilities for the wide range of applications for which it is now being used. The improvements particularly affect internal flows (indoor ventilation) and transient releases.

  • Passive inlets and outlets can be set for indoor ventilation simulations.
  • Monitor Regions now show minimum, maximum and average values in the monitor region for all variables. This can be accessed in the new Monitor Region Data window (Project Menu).
  • Custom Volumes can now be set for ventilation simulations and accessed via the tab on the Volume Analysis window (Project Menu).
  • Mesh Refinement Regions allow some user control over meshing, to account for cases where the automatic mesh cannot make a reasonable assumption about the required mesh resolution in certain regions. Refinement regions area available from the “Add Item” tab and should only be used in very specific circumstances.
