Software Cradle Releases scFLOW, SC/Tetra, scSTREAM, scPOST v14

OSAKA, Japan, May 21, 2018 – Software Cradle Co., Ltd. announced the latest version, v14 release of scFLOW, SC/Tetra, scSTREAM and scPOST.

CAE is now an essential tool in design and development for manufacturers. Computer Fluid Dynamics (CFD), is the most complexed calculation which requires time in CAE. Expectation towards CFD is to get complexed phenomenon solved with high accuracy in high speed.

Software Cradle updates products so that the user would feel the difference in features, operability and high speed of the calculations in daily operation, and lead the user to have confidence in their contribution to the development and design.

scFLOW has succeeded almost all the features of SC/Tetra with higher speed and more accuracy. With a new function of Discrete Element Method (DEM), scSTREAM has enabled to calculate behavior of particles or powder in fluid, including the interactions among particles such as solid particles in a fluidized bed.

This version has been enhanced for integration with MSC Software products. MSC Co-simulation provides seamless co-simulation with Marc or Adams, which will be released later this year.


Using the improved overset mesh function, overlapped mesh elements can be generated with more stability and accuracy. The memory usage in parallel processing has become more efficient, which is now half of what was required for the previous version of scFLOW. Diverse range of phenomena can be simulated with unique functions including free surface, cavitation, liquid film, compressible fluid, and turbulence models.


CAD data with a considerable number of electronic parts can be imported twice faster than the previous version. New functions include DEM (Discrete Element Method), induced motions of an object by fluid force, and calculation of heat stress risk indices (WBGT). Enhancements have also been made to existing features such as solar radiation effect on surface, angled blower fan and many more.
