Daikin Initiates Verification of High-Speed Compressor Simulation with RICOS AI-CAE

RICOS Co. Ltd. (CEO Yu Ihara) specializes in using AI and simulation technologies to enhance efficiency and add value to product design. We announce the commencement of a joint project with Daikin Industries, Ltd. (President and CEO: Masanori Togawa) to expedite simulations predicting internal flows in compressors using RICOS original AI. Daikin aims to achieve rapid and accurate internal flow assessments of compressors, traditionally taking up to half a day for analysis, using RICOS’s AI-CAE tool (“RICOS Lightning”). This move is expected to significantly improve design efficiency by reducing computation time and by introducing an AI tool that is user-friendly for various team members, including designers, beyond just the analysis specialists.

■RICOS original AI algorithm – ‘IsoGCN’
RICOS Lightning includes our original AI algorithm called ‘IsoGCN’, which can predict simulation outcomes both rapidly and with great accuracy. Designed specifically for use with simulation data, ‘IsoGCN’ features four key characteristics.

1. High speed: IsoGCN reduces computation significantly compared to traditional simulations, enabling faster simulations.
2. 3D Data Comprehension: It accurately understands 3D shapes, making it suitable for predicting complex product designs.
3. Extrapolation for Shapes: Incorporating methods like fluid, thermal, and structural analysis, IsoGCN delivers reliable results for new product shapes.
4. Easy Operation: It eliminates the need for rigorous meshing work required in traditional CAE simulations, speeding up the process and making it accessible to non-experts.
Using IsoGCN can reduce simulation time from days to minutes while maintaining accuracy, moving closer to real-time product design. Its applications include aerodynamic analysis for automobiles, thermal analysis of electronic components, and thermal fluid analysis of gasses.

RICOS aims to make scientific computation effectively usable in all manufacturing, envisioning a world where optimal performance can be designed instantly.
