Fully embedded CFD

  • 06-Jan-2017 10:17 EST


Mentor Graphics Corp. (Wilsonville, OR) offers the only fully embedded computational fluid dynamics (CFD) solution for Solid Edge software, a mainstream computer-aided design (CAD) solution developed by Siemens’ product lifecycle management software business. Solid Edge customers can now use Mentor Graphics' FloEFD frontloading CFD product to simulate fluid flow in their design process. Engineers can operate within their preferred and familiar mechanical CAD (MCAD) interface, thus reducing design cycle times by order of magnitude compared to traditional methods and tools, while increasing design quality. Key features include: robust 3D fluid flow and heat transfer analysis software capable of solving complex real-life engineering problems; fully-embedded in Solid Edge, FloEFD technology allows users to conduct multiple design studies and evaluate how the modifications influence the design performance immediately; and an intuitive user interface with built-in intelligent automation including real-time feedback and timely outputs that can be generated quickly in Microsoft Word and Excel.
