FloEFD™ 3D Computational Fluid Dynamics Software
FloEFD™ is “Concurrent CFD”. Analyze as you design and speed up your workflow. FloEFD is the ONLY computational fluid dynamics analysis tool that is truly embedded into major MCAD systems. These include Creo, CATIA, Siemens NX and SolidWorks; and tight integration with Inventor and SolidEdge. FloEFD is a full-featured 3D fluid flow, heat transfer analysis package that is both fast to learn and to use because it doesn’t come with the numerical complexity and meshing overheads of traditional high-end CFD. Features and Benefits Easy-to-use CAD embedded Concurrent CFD For analysis to become an integral part of the design process, it must be easy to use and able to adapt readily to your design process. Developed for engineers, FloEFD turns CFD analysis into a plug-in for CAD. Because of its intuitive interface, FloEFD is extremely easy to use – in fact, most design engineers report that they can use FloEFD with less than 8 hours of training. Better Products, Faster Award winning FloEFD is ‘Concurrent CFD’, fully embedded CFD analysis software that enables Design Engineers to create better products, faster. Industries around the world such as aerospace, automotive, medical devices, industrial machinery, pumps/ valves etc, use 'concurrent' FloEFD to: Improve product performance, functionality and reliability Reduce physical prototyping and production costs Minimize risk of making design mistakes Save both time and money by reducing design times and speeding up workflow Effortless what-if testing Perhaps the most powerful feature of FloEFD is the ease with which you can conduct “what-if” analysis. Easily modify your models and immediately analyze them: FloEFD helps you create multiple variations of your designs by modifying your solid model without needing to reapply loads, boundary conditions, etc. Simply compare your many design options and choose the best one for your final design! In addition, FloEFD includes a Parametric Study tool which significantly increases the speed of parametric analyses such as varying boundary conditions or mesh settings. And using the Compare Tool, which makes identifying the best design variant faster, you can compare plots and numerical data across multiple projects to select the best possible option. Multi-physics analysis Multi-physics simulation is now required for many products. FloEFD’s generic interface to NASTRAN structural analysis modules allows you to export pressure and temperature data from FloEFD for structural or thermal simulation. Thus analyses for stress, vibration, structural failure and heat transfer can help you develop safer and more reliable designs within shorter time-to-market timelines. Quickly generate reports You can create and distribute your animated results as well as quickly generate reports in Microsoft ® Excel and Word, including all your favorite plots. Analysis wizard FloEFD’s powerful wizard guides you through the problem set-up so you don’t forget any important steps before the solution stepsolving the problem. 1D-3D CFD simulation Mentor Graphics offers a unique combination of 1D and 3D CFD software designed to natively work together providing an opportunity to increase digital prototyping information earlier in the product development process. With this unique combination, you can characterize the more complex components of a system in 3D (FloEFD) and easily insert those components into the 1D system-level model (Flowmaster) for simulation. Thus providing higher accuracy for the components while minimizing the computational resources and execution times at the system level.
