Daat Research Corp. announces new solution visualization tools for its award winning Coolit
family of CFD thermal software for electronics. The new tools will help engineers better
appreciate the implications of their design decisions and guide them toward design
One new tool is solution volume visualization using color fog. Typically, fog depicts
temperature or pressure variations and its opacity can be controlled, allowing the user to
view obscured objects. When combined with sectional view planes, fog helps the user to
quickly analyze complex spatial distributions.
A second powerful tool being introduced is automatic flow visualization and animation. Based
on previously available streamrods and streamribbons, the new one-click option automatically
distributes injectors throughout the solution field and injects particles that show flow
direction, velocity, swirl, as well as the local value of a scalar variable, such as
temperature, at the particle's location.
In addition to the shared improvements, each Coolit member delivers a unique new feature.
Coolit v.11 implements major improvements in its CAD models import capability. Figure 1.
shows the computed results of the new import in a real-life geometry.
Meanwhile, CoolitPCB v.7 adds several new components to its library, such as triangular prisms
and inclined baffles. These components will expand the software's range of possible

Founded in 1992, Daat concentrates on the development of top-performing computational
fluid dynamics (CFD) products for MS Windows. Daat's award-winning Coolit family of CFD products is available across all Windows
platforms and is well-regarded for its remarkably intuitive user interface, a full range
of Windows capabilities, and exceptionally fast solution times that are particularly
valuable for what-if analyses.
