Simulating and Optimizing Mixing Processes Web Seminar
On-demand Web Seminar
Join us for a complimentary 45-minute web seminar, where the presenter will discuss the challenges vehicle manufactures face when designing manifolds for engines.
Some of the challenges inherent with manifold systems are high temperatures and the uniform mixing of two gases. These issues will be analyzed simultaneously through simulation using Mentor Graphics' CFD analysis software for mechanical engineers FloEFD. The presenter will show that expensive prototypes, test equipment and time to market can all be reduced dramatically with the early implementation of embedded CFD software into a users existing MCAD system. In addition to the speed at which the designer can complete the design, the ultimate product will be less expensive while maintaining optimal performance.
To illustrate this, the presenter will demonstrate how easy it is to prepare a product design for analysis, analyze it and then evaluate the detailed 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 simulation results for the new model.
What You Will Learn
- Perform analysis using a FloEFD wizard and a familiar CAD interface
- Visualize mixing processes in a virtual 3D environment
- Understand the impact of design changes and how it can effect the mixing of fluids/gases
- Export detailed reports to Microsoft's Word and Excel
About the Presenter
Joe Proulx has worked for Mentor Graphics Mechanical Analysis, formerly Flomerics, as a consultant engineer since July 2005 and is currently an application engineer. He also participates in training, customer support and consulting.
Joe's prior employment was with Sycamore Networks where he was responsible for all aspects of designing the cooling of the company's products. Along with the use of thermal simulation software, Joe was able work in a thermal lab complete with a thermal imaging camera, wind tunnel, multiple hot wire anemometers, thermocouples and other ubiquitous lab equipment.
Before that, Joe was employed by Degree Controls as thermal consultant. Degree Controls is a complete thermal solutions provider. Joe was responsible for handling customer's thermal needs from computational thermal analysis to physical flow and temperature measurement.
Prior to his position at Degree Controls, Joe was employed by Cabletron Systems in Rochester, NH. While there, Joe worked as a thermal analyst utilizing FloTherm and a complete thermal lab.
Joe graduated from the University of New Hampshire in 1995 with a Bachelor of Science degree in mechanical engineering.
