One of the things I’m responsible for in the Mechanical Analysis Division is promoting the use of our software in education. It’s something I care passionately about and see great potential for our mechanical CAD-embedded tools to revolutionize the way fluid dynamics is taught, particularly at undergraduate level.
In part it’s because I believe that if engineers knew what CFD can do in terms of providing insight into how a design performs they’d be converts – just like me :). Obviously it’s great to catch people during their education, but for practicing engineers already in industry that opportunity has passed.
Well, I’ve just found out about a great opportunity that will allow practicing mechanical engineers to increase their skill set and maybe identify how CFD can help their companies through the recession – a free demo version of FloEFD.Pro! Clicking on the Try FloEFD button on this page.
FloEFD.Pro works inside PTC’s Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire product, so it’s perfect if you’re a Wildfire user already. If not, then there’s another opportunity as it looks like you can also get a Tryout Version of Wildfire 4 through a link on the FloEFD.Pro demo version page.
The FloEFD.Pro demo version is fully featured and is supplied with a range of cases you can use to become familiar with the software. Why not give it a go?
Of course if you’re not quite ready to take a trial, you can get a good feel for what FloEFD is all about by watching the on-line Technology Overview, or the on-line demos showing FloEFD applied to common Engineering Challenges.
