I thought I’d put up a brief post about an exciting series of free web seminars that address key engineering challenges in product design. The first of these is a seminar aimed at engineering managers to explain how their mechanical designers can perform a CFD Analysis without leaving the familiar comfort of their MCAD tool.
Historically CFD has been the preserve of the professional analyst, often pushed to the end of the design flow due to the time required to prepare geometry for analysis and define the mesh. FloEFD operates directly with the CAD geometry and its Rectangular Adaptive Mesh technology allows mesh generation to be fully automatic. Consequently designers can perform flow and heat transfer studies on their designs from the outset, making it possible to optimize the design – not just check it performs adequately, which is the traditional use model for CFD analysis. Hence we’re calling the series “Simulating and Optimizing …”
