Try the latest thing in CFD – Free!

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.

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
