FloEFD CAD Embedded CFD Hands On Workshop – at NIAR
FloEFD for CATIA V5
This complimentary hands on workshop is offered for engineers to experience using FloEFD, a modern CAD-embedded Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) solution. Join this session and experience the step change of working directly with simulation analysis and CAD Geometry directly in a familiar CAD environment.
Session are located at facilities that are part of National Institute of Aerospace Research (NIAR) , Wichita State University. (Please note the session location above)
Fully CAD Embedded CFD offers significant simulation process time advantages to the engineers in aerospace industry and beyond to drive shorter development time by evaluating designs earlier to make the right decisions.
FloEFD has unique automated meshing technology, guided simulation set up and an interface designed for engineers of varied levels of CFD experience to use.

About the Presenter
Travis Mikjaniec received an MS in Aerospace Engineering from Carleton University in 2006, with a research focus on rotorcraft aerodynamics and aeroelasticity. He has been with Mentor Graphics Corporation, Mechanical Analysis Division (formerly Flomerics Ltd) for 6 years specializing in the application of CFD Analysis to the design of electronics equipment. Prior to this he worked for the National Research Council of Canada's (NRC) Institute for Aerospace Research (IAR) Flight Research Laboratory focusing on flight tests and also worked at the NRC's IAR Aeroacoustic and Structural Dynamics Laboratory in experimental testing of smart structures. Travis is currently a Thermal Engineer in the Mechanical Analysis Division engineering team, training and supporting customers doing Thermal Analysis for electronic systems. Travis has experience not only in the use of software, but also of the general design processes and the best way to apply the CFD techniques solve real world problems encountered by engineers.

FloEFD for CATIA Demonstration
This video gives you a short look and explanation of what FloEFD is. In the video you will see the FloEFD for CATIA integration and how post processing results are displayed inside your CAD system.
Cooling of Electrical Machines
You will see how FloEFD can handle the flow and thermal calculations of complex geometries like a large electrical motor.
Understanding Plume Dispersion
Cooling towers are an integral part of power and chemical plants. Their primary function is to reject heat into the atmosphere as a relatively inexpensive and dependable means of removing low-grade heat...
