Flow, Pressure, Cavitation! Use "X-Ray Vision" to Avert a Design Disaster
On-demand Web Seminar
In this web seminar we will discuss the typical challenges an engineer faces when designing Process Plant flow control devices such as valves and piping. We will see how an MCAD an embedded Concurrent CFD approach can dramatically improve workflow during the design process, leading to better products in far less time, maximizing both output and profits.
To illustrate this, the presenter will demonstrate how easy it is with Concurrent CFD software to prepare a valve design for analysis, analyze it and then evaluate the results, The presenter will then go on to show you how to perform “what-if” analysis by simply modifying the MCAD geometry and viewing the Concurrent CFD simulation results for the new model.
What You Will Learn
- Perform analysis using a FloEFD wizard and familiar CAD interface
- Visualize pressure and flow distributions in a virtual 3D environment
- Understand the impact of design changes and how it can effect pressure
- Efficient ways to share results with design teams and customers
About the Presenter
Chris is a Senior Applications Engineer and Thermo-Fluid Engineering Supervisor for the Mechanical Analysis Division (formerly Flomerics) of Mentor Graphics. He is responsible for technical leadership of Mentor’s FloEFD product line in North America.
Prior to Mentor Graphics, Chris worked for NIKA and CD-adapco, starting his career in the commercial CFD industry in 1995. His engineering roles through the years have included consulting and technical support, but his main role and interest is in pre-sales application engineering to assist the sales teams.
