Our Tools

Biscarri Consultoria provides CAE services using state-of-the-art CAE Open Source Tools. The use of open-source software offers many advantages:

  • Source Code availability and GPL/LGPL Free Cost Licensing
  • Model Parametrization and Proces Automatization at Meshing, Analysis and Postprocessing Tasks
  • Multiphysics Integration / Multivariable Optimization / Easy Acces to HPC (no extra license cost to run in parallel with many processors)
  • User’s Communities highly active on the internet: plenty of users and developers sharing knowledge selflessly at the forums, with collaborative attitude

OpenFOAM – Computational Fluid Dynamics

OpenFOAM is a CFD software package developed by CFD Direct and other contributors. It has a large user base across most areas of engineering and science, from both commercial and academic organisations. Learn more at www.openfoam.org.

Dakota – Mathematical and statistical methods to help scientists and engineers asses and improve the accuracy of computational models

The Dakota toolkit provides a flexible, extensible interface between analysis codes and iterative systems analysis methods. Dakota contains algorithms for:

  • Optimization with gradient and nongradient-based methods;
  • Uncertainty Quantification with sampling, reliability, stochastic expansion, and epistemic methods;
  • Model Calibration with nonlinear least squares methods;
  • Sensitivity/Variance Analysis with design of experiments and parameter study methods.

These capabilities may be used on their own or as components within advanced strategies such as hybrid optimization, surrogate-based optimization, mixed integer nonlinear programming, or optimization under uncertainty. Learn more at https://dakota.sandia.gov.

Elmer – Multiphysics

Elmer is a multiphysical simulation software mainly developed by CSC – IT Center for Science (CSC). Elmer development was started 1995 in collaboration with Finnish Universities, research institutes and industry.  Elmer includes physical models of fluid dynamics, structural mechanics, electromagnetics, heat transfer and acoustics, for example.

Octave – Numerical analysis

GNU Octave is a high-level language, primarily intended for numerical computations. It provides a convenient command-line interface (CLI) for solving linear and nonlinear problems numerically, and for performing other numerical experiments using a language that is mostly compatible with MATLAB. It may also be used as a batch-oriented language. Visit Octave’s page.
