Convergent Science has updated its CONVERGE CFD (computational fluid dynamics) software. Apart from fixes in the detected issues, this version hosts a couple of noteworthy enhancements as well.

CONVERGE 2.4.19 is a minor release that includes enhancements and bug fixes.
Bug fix: Fixed an error that caused CONVERGE to crash in simulations with bothenergy_solver_f lag= 2 (i.e., the total energy solver) and species_dif f usion_model = 1 ininputs.in.
Bug fix: The steady-state solver imposes upper and lower limits on sensible internal energy(sie), but CONVERGE did not correctly determine these limits for cases with tabulatedfluid properties (tabular_f luid_prop_f lag = 1 in inputs.in). This bug has been fixed.
Bug fix: Fixed a bug that caused occasional crashes for simulations with both the MUSCLscheme and at least one FLOW_THROUGH boundary.
Bug fix: Previously the SOR algorithm did not always exit correctly due to an error in theomega cutting mechanism. This bug has been fixed.
Bug fix: Fixed a bug related to bound_or_vector in dynamic.in. Previously CONVERGEchecked for a boundary ID even when bound_or_vector = 1, and this erroneous check couldcause the simulation to crash.
Bug fix: If there is an imbalance of elements between the reactants and products in anychemical reaction, CONVERGE now prints a warning message to alert you to theimbalance. Previously a bug prevented this warning from being written.
Bug fix: For NASA 7-formatted therm.dat files, CONVERGE now verifies the upper andlower temperature limits. Previously this check did not exist, which sometimes led to anout-of-bounds error.
Output/ Post-Processing
Enhancement: CONVERGE now writes more detailed screen output, including the meanand standard deviation of the monitored variables, for the steady-state monitor.
Enhancement: CONVERGE writes additional Reynolds stress quantities to turbulence.out.For simulations that have a different turbulence model, these quantities will have a valueof -1.
Bug fix: For parallel simulations, if some processors did not have wall cells for a given wallin wall_output.in, CONVERGE would crash. This bug has been fixed.
Bug fix: Some CONVERGE 2.4.18 simulations that contained monitor points and thatwere run on a Windows machine crashed. This bug has been fixed.
Bug fix: Fixed a bug that caused incorrect energy residuals for solid regions to be writtento residuals.out.
Bug fix: Fixed a bug that caused the firstpost*.out file to have the wrong time (in itsfilename) for steady-state cases that had been restarted.
Enhancement: Added the Carreau model for non-Newtonian fluids.
Enhancement: CONVERGE can now simulate compressible composite liquid species.Previously composites were not allowed for compressible liquids.
Enhancement: CONVERGE now automatically issues a warning regarding boundariesthat should be set as RELOFT boundaries. In addition, RELOFT boundaries now supportnormal motion via the new depend keyword.
Bug fix: For moving WALL boundaries with a 1D CHT temperature boundary condition,CONVERGE did not always maintain the correct coordinates for points on the boundary.This bug led to incorrect temperatures in the post*.out files.
Bug fix: Fixed a bug that caused some cases with both INTERFACE boundaries and fixedembedding at the INTERFACE to crash.
Bug fix: Fixed a memory access problem that caused CONVERGE to crash when aFLOW_THROUGH boundary coincided with a processor boundary.
Bug fix: Added checks and a warning message if the surface from a spatially varyingboundary condition is offset from the corresponding boundary.
Regions and Initialization
Bug fix: Fixed a bug that caused some cases to crash after region initialization.
Bug fix: For simulations with both the ELSA model and the cavitation model, CONVERGEdid not correctly identify the liquid species. This bug has been fixed.
Bug fix: Fixed a bug that caused some simulations with parcel_evap_model= 0 to crash.
Bug fix: The LISA breakup model gave incorrect spray parcel diameters for cases thatinvoked the steady-state solver. This bug has been fixed.
Bug fix: Fixed an error that very slightly affected the evaporated mass calculation in the Discretized Temperature Model.
Combustion and Emissions
Enhancement: CONVERGE now rereads the issim.in file during a restart if the start timefor the restarted simulation is prior to the start time of the spark specified in issim.in.
Enhancement: The ECFM combustion model can now run cases with multi-componentfuels.
Bug fix: Fixed several bugs in the detailed decomposition of urea model. These fixesimprove the computational efficiency of this model and make it more physically realistic.Results may change slightly.
Bug fix: Fixed a bug that led to incorrect soot predictions from the PM and PSM detailedsoot models for simulations that also used the user_mech_rate.c user-defined function.
Bug fix: Fixed some bugs in the ECFM combustion model that caused incorrect flamespeed values.
Bug fix: Fixed a bug that caused incorrect output temperatures (written to the post*.outfiles.) after super-cycling.
Bug fix: Previously CONVERGE erroneously allowed any type of boundary to be assignedto the super-cycling boundary group, and this error occasionally led to crashes. Newchecks have been added to ensure that each super-cycling boundary is INTERFACE orWALL (if WALL, the boundary must have a temperature boundary condition of convectionor Neumann) and that both the f orward and reverse sides of an INTERFACE boundary areassigned to the same stream.
Bug fix: Fixed several bug related to mass conservation for incompressible VOF modeling.
Enhancement: The FSI spring model can now accommodate a variable spring constant. Toinvoke this new option, specify a file name instead of a number for spring_constant inf si_spring.in and include a file that contains the spring constant data.
Enhancement: CONVERGE now calculates pressure boundary conditions by interpolatingbetween GT-SUITE's supplied pressure data and CONVERGE's region-average pressurefor gti_flag=3 and 13. This enhancement is an extension of the GT-SUITE enhancement in 2.4.18.
Enhancement: The CKWYP routine in user_mech_rate.c has been renamed.
Bug fix: Fixed a bug in the user_combust_rif .c routine. This bug prevent scalar_diss_rate.outfrom being written and it may have led to incorrect data in thermo.out.
Bug fix: Fixed a bug in the user_points_data.c routine that caused incorrect equivalenceratio data for the UDF monitor points.
Bug fix: CONVERGE incorrectly invoked user_spray_colide.c (instead of the correspondingsubroutine in the main code) when user_coalesce_f lag = 0 in udf .in. This bug has been fixed.
Bug fix: Fixed a bug in the Windows UDF code that caused a problem with the libraries.

CONVERGE Studio v2.4_062018 is a minor release that includes enhancements and bugfixes.
Enhancement: Made several improvements in the clarity, detail, and format of tooltips anddescriptions throughout CONVERGE Studio.
Bug Fix: Fixed a bug in which function keyboard keys (e.g.,F1) could not be mappedproperly to keyboard shortcuts (Edit > Keyboard Shortcuts).
Case Setup Module
Enhancement: Improved the Set Valve Lift tool capability in Boundary Conditions >Boundary. Now the tool runs faster and shows a progress bar.
Enhancement: Updated the Physical Models > Spray modeling >Urea dialog box. Now youcan import and export coefficients, clip items, and scaling factors for the molten solid ureaand detailed decomposition approaches.
Enhancement: For transient simulations, added the capability to perform calculationsbeyond just nozzle diameter and injection velocity in the Spray rate calculator (PhysicalModels > Spray modeling > Injectors > Tools).
Enhancement: Added a user-defined function (SAGE soot model) to UDF selection.
Bug Fix: Fixed a bug in Boundary Conditions > Boundary. Previously, deleting a boundary inGeometry > Boundary > Flag while the Case Setup > Boundary Conditions > Boundary dialogbox was open caused CONVERGE Studio to overwrite the configuration of the subsequentboundary with the configuration of the deleted boundary.
Bug Fix: Fixed a bug in Initial Conditions & Events > Mapping variables. Previously,importing a map.in file via the Import data from map.in button could cause CONVERGEStudio to crash.
Bug Fix: Fixed a bug in Physical Models > Spray modeling > Urea. Previously, importingearlier versions of urea.in could cause CONVERGE Studio to show an unnecessary errormessage.


About CONVERGE. CONVERGE is a revolutionary computational fluid dynamics (CFD) program thateliminates the grid generation bottleneck from the simulation process. CONVERGE wasdeveloped by engine simulation experts and is straightforward to use for both engine andnon-engine simulations. Unlike many CFD programs, CONVERGE automaticallygenerates a perfectly orthogonal, structured grid at runtimebased on simple, user-definedgrid control parameters. This grid generation method completely eliminates the need tomanually generate a grid. In addition, CONVERGE offers many other features to expeditethe setup process and to ensure that your simulations are as computationally efficient aspossible.
In this demonstration reel, we show the simulation of a number of different compressors, where CONVERGE CFD easily handles complex geometries, moving boundaries, and fluid-structure interactions (FSI). Adaptive Mesh Refinement (AMR) ensures that flow is resolved sufficiently, especially around valves.
