FloEFD CAD Embedded CFD Hands On Workshop – at NIAR




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 Aviation Research (NIAR) , Wichita State University.

Fully CAD Embedded CFD offers significant simulation process time advantages to the engineers in aviation 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.

What You Will Learn

  • Setting up a simulation in the FloEFD CAD Embedded Interface:
  • Automated Meshing
  • Guided Simulation set up – boundary conditions, heat transfer etc
  • Selecting Fluid Properties
  • Accessing and Interpreting simulation results to make decisions
  • Running a parametric study for evaluating design changes or conditions rapidly
  • Discuss extended use of FloEFD for attendee applications

Demonstration Examples:

  • Ball Valve - Pressure Drop Analysis
  • Heat Exchanger – Efficiency study
  • Electronics/Avionics Enclosure – Cooling study
