Container Fill Predictor SaaS Plan

The Container Fill Predictor (CFP) is a web application that simulates the filling of a container with a fluid. The CFP allows a user to upload a computer aided design (CAD) file describing the container geometry which may have an arbitrary number of inlets and outlets. During filling, a user-specified fluid type flows into the container at a user-specified speed at each inlet while air escapes from the container from each outlet. The CFP performs a series of computational fluid dynamics (CFD) calculations to predict the fluid pressure and velocity at different filling times within the container. In addition, the user is provided with interactive visualizations of pressure and velocity distributions within the container. The CFD calculations are performed using OpenFOAM, an open source CFD software package. The CFP was developed by Procter & Gamble, hosted by the Ohio Supercomputer Center, and deployed as an on-demand cloud product by Nimbis Services.

The SaaS Plan: For users that have completed the Container Fill Predictor Startup Package, this software-as-a-service (SaaS) plan offers a monthly pay-as-you-go service. Automatic payments are made or invoices are issued, depending on payment method, at the beginning of each calendar month for actual core hour and software usage over the previous month.
