Future Facilities has launched Release 16 of its Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) software and digital twin technology, 6SigmaDCX.
The updates will deliver improved performance, accuracy, and speed to support a broad range of data centre teams in decision making and achieving sustainable success.
The new 6SigmaDCX offers a range of features to enhance data centre design and operations. The key design highlights include:
— Enhanced View developments which enable users to showcase photorealistic results in reports and facilitate animation creation
— Improvements to the 1D Flow Network to ensure fast, detailed thermal flow analysis of the liquid and air flow routes
— New result views and object configurations, such as Isosurfaces, which deliver innovative ways to visualise external models and empower risk analysis at any stage of design
— The ability to import BIM models directly into 6SigmaDCX for faster model creation
— Performance improvements, namely Future Facilities’ new back tracing method, ensuring solar radiation calculations solve up to 30 times faster.
With these new features, 6SigmaDCX is designed to better support a wide range of industry sectors. Commenting on the new release, Mark Fenton, Product Manager at Future Facilities, said, “The aspirational goal for Release 16 was to deliver software that satisfied the want of our customers. We collaborated with users across all sectors to dig into the features that would make a difference in their day-to-day lives, whether that meant easier model builds, quicker solution times, automated and customisable reporting, or just the good feeling you get from using great software.”
