FloTHERM V10.0 - What's New
On-demand Web Seminar
Mentor Graphics is pleased to introduce the latest version of FloTHERM, V10.0. A major release that satisfies over 40 software enhancement requests posted on the Mentor IDEAS site. The Project Manager and Drawing Board application windows have been combined into a single Windows compliant interface, stage one of a full GUI update program. The CFD solver has been re-implemented resulting in substantial speed-ups ranging from an average of 2 to 3 times to over 10 times faster than previous versions. FloTHERM temperatures can now be exported in a form that is ready for interpolation onto FEA meshes to act as boundary conditions for a thermo-mechanical simulation in other FEA tools. These and many other exciting changes to FloTHERM will be introduced by the FloTHERM Product Manager.
