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.

Web Seminar: CFD Analysis for MCAD Designers – Better Products, Faster

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 …”

About John Parry

John ParryI started my career in the consultancy group at CHAM Ltd., using PHOENICS for a variety of CFD applications. From the consultancy group I moved into support, helping customers debug models, and figuring out how to model new applications. That broadened into delivering training courses and creating training material. I was invited to join Flomerics when it started in 1989 to head up Customer Services, and I jumped at the chance to work for a startup. After a few years supporting customers using FloTHERM I moved across into research, developing thermofluid models of common electronic parts, like fans and IC packages, later managing the DELPHI and SEED projects. More recently I worked with Flomerics’ Finance Director on the acquisition of MicReD, helping to integrate MicReD’s business into Flomerics Group which was great fun. Since Flomerics acquired Nika, I’ve been responsible for promoting the FloEFD suite in education, and moved into marketing. I now work as part of the Mechanical Analysis Division’s Corporate Marketing group, responsible for ElectronicsCooling Magazine and the division’s Higher Education Program. Expertise: I’m a chemical engineer by training and did a PhD in reactor design before getting involved with CFD more than 25 years ago. Visit John Parry’s Blog
