Mentor Graphics FloEFD™ is “Concurrent CFD”:
Analyze as you design and speed up your workflow.
FloEFD is part of a new breed of CFD tools called Concurrent CFD. FloEFD is a full-featured general purpose CFD tool serving the needs of Pro/ENGINEER, Inventor, Solid Edge, SolidWorks as well as other popular MCAD systems.
FloEFD combines all simulation steps – starting with use of your 3D CAD data for model preparation, to mesh generation, solving and results visualization – in one easy-to-use package.
Concurrent CFD can reduce simulation time significantly in comparison to traditional CFD tools and enables users to optimize product performance and reliability while reducing physical prototyping and development costs without time or material penalties.
Combined with your MCAD software, FloEFD provides you with a powerful simulation tool to:
- Improve product performance, functionality and reliability
- Reduce physical prototyping and production costs
- Minimize risk of making design mistakes
FloEFD Pro is the only fully embedded Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) tool for Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire®. As a Pro/TOOLKIT application, FloEFD Pro enables you to analyze and optimize complex fluid flow and heat transfer effects on your designs directly inside Pro/ENGINEER.
FloEFD Pro has the same “look and feel” as Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire so you are not forced to learn a new interface simply to use the software. And unlike other CFD programs, FloEFD Pro interacts directly with the native 3D CAD data defined by Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire – with no translation or copies – in order to keep pace with on-going design changes.
Concurrent CFD can reduce simulation time by as much as 65% to 75% in comparison to traditional CFD tools and enables users to optimize product performance and reliability while reducing physical prototyping and development costs without time or material penalties. If you use Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire, you ought to take a closer look at FloEFD Pro – the only fluid flow and heat transfer simulation tool that fits into your design process without requiring you to change the way you design products.
