How Simulations Works with Ingrid Cloud

1. Register

Register for a free account. Get one simulation for free. No fixed fees, and you can cancel the account at any time.


2. Set up

Select an application and upload a 3D-model. Select three parameters and start the simulation within minutes.

Set up

3. Evaluate

We simulate the flow with smart algorithms on a supercomputer. You will receive high resolution images, time-step videos and relevant plots.

Questions and answers

  • Do I need experience in CFD – Computational Fluid Dynamics, in order to use Ingrid Cloud?
    No. Anyone can use Ingrid Cloud.
  • What kind of model do I need to use Ingrid Cloud?
    You need a 3D-model in STL-format. You can easily convert your CAD-file to STL in the CAD/Design-software that you use
  • How long does it take to initiate a simulation?
    It doesn’t take more than a few minutes. You upload the model and set a few parameters. The rest is handled by our intelligent algorithms.
  • I am an experienced CFD-engineer with a PhD in fluid mechanics. Is Ingrid Cloud be sophisticated enough for me?
    Ingrid Cloud can meet many needs of an experienced CFD-engineer within each specific application. The fully automated work flow eliminates a lot of time which allows the engineer to spend time on analyzing the results instead of spending it on setting parameters and refining the mesh. Moreover, each application will have an advanced mode for some parameters of interest.
  • Can I really trust fully automated flow simulations to work? Doesn’t it require the hand of an expert?
    There are, of course, some cases which are not suitable for automation. And there will always be use cases which requires hands on work by a CFD-expert. Our aim is to introduce automated simulations on area/application at a time, making sure that we have validated the use case against experiments and benchmark cases. This allows us to confidently say that you can trust that our automated simulations are accurate and reliable.
  • Some of our models are highly confidential. Is your cloud solution secure to use?
    Yes, our cloud solution uses high security standards which have been accepted by industry leaders. All of our staff is bound by strict confidentiality governed by contract as well as law.
  • What is the difference between your cloud based solution for CFD Simulations and other cloud based simulation services?
    Most of the cloud simulation services available on the market are based on the open source software Open Foam. Unlike Ingrid Cloud, these services do not offer fully automated high-fidelity simulations. Moreover, they do not enable mesh refinement based on error estimation, or scale on thousands of cores.
  • Can I analyze other fluids than air with Ingrid Cloud?
    Yes, while the default is air, you can easily set the viscosity and density in the application to analyze other fluids.
  • Can I analyze aeroacoustics (sound sources) with Ingrid Cloud, or is only aerodynamics included?
    Ingrid Cloud will during 2018 add functionality for aeroacoustic analysis such as sound sources and sound propagation.
  • I want to compare different designs. Can I do that easily?
    We plan to add this as a special feature, but in the meanwhile, you can just conduct a simulation with each model with the same parameters and compare the results.
  • I need help to analyze the results of the simulation. Can you help me with that?
    Yes, if you contact, our engineers can provide you with some pointers on how to interpret the simulation.
