Cradle V2020 now Released

Cradle V2020 now Released

We are proud to announce the new release of Cradle CFD V2020 solutions for wider audience.


    • scFLOW: New generation unstructured mesh CFD software
    • scSTREAM: Long-established, powerful structured mesh CFD software
    • scPOST: Remarkable postprocessor able to visualize multi-physics simulation effectively

In this new version, we have reinforced “Multi-Physics” and “Multi-Phase” capabilities with the intention to make CAE simulation for more realistic.

Aero-acoustics embedded in scFLOW, powered by Actran. Flow-induced noise simulation becomes now available remaining in the scFLOW environment. This is achieved through a dedicated plug-in (scFLOW2Actran) that connects scFLOW with Actran, the acoustic simulation solver of MSC Software. As well as being accessible to any level users, the function also minimizes users’ stress for learning operation of two different software to perform aeroacoustics.

Cradle CFD v2020

Cradle CFD v2020 is more connected to MSC Software solutions, like MSC Nastran, Marc and Adams through MSC CoSim Engine. Graphically powerful results can be generated by our postprocessor scPOST to visualize FEM, MBD, Acoustics on one screen for users’ ease.

HeatPathView is a tool to specifically visualize heat paths calculated in Cradle CFD. In v2020, it is made capable of connecting to 1-D simulation tool. This function enables users to not only solve thermal problem, but also construct entire product model for simulation by connecting to mechanical, electrical and/or the other 1-D simulations.

DEM and CFD coupling feature

DEM and CFD coupling feature has been available in scFLOW v2020 for the first time, together with additional improvement impelemneted in scSTREAM v2020. Using our DEM feature, it is possible to evaluate heat transfer, filtering and consolidation with/without CFD analysis. DEM and CFD calculation can also be connected to FEM and MBD solutions though MSC CoSim Engine.


“We provide Cradle CFD solutions pursuant to the spirit of crafting Japanese KATANA sword. In another word, we aim to offer pragmatic solutions for CFD calculation.” said  Makoto Shibahara, Software Cradle President and CEO. “We will continue to improve quality of each function. Our total solution is not only limited to CFD but all of CAE solutions in MSC Software portfolio, which will lead to smarter simulation, for more practical and realistic results.”
