Aerospace & Defense

FloEFD applications within the aerospace and defense industries:

  • Aerodynamics
  • Anti-icing systems
  • Avionics cooling
  • Cabin comfort modeling
  • Component design - valves, nozzles, pumps, manifolds and filters
  • Contaminant control
  • Engines and engine parts
  • Environment control systems (ECS)
  • Hydraulic systems
  • Lighting/LEDs
  • Subsonic to hypersonic

Aerospace valve manufacturer Shaw Aero Devices, Inc., Naples, Florida, saved at least $9000 and three months in prototyping costs by using Flomerics’ FloEFD computational fluid dynamics (CFD) software... Fluid Simulation Reduces Valve Prototype Development Time from 3 Months to 1 Day

“CFD simulation dramatically reduced the time needed to meet our customer’s demanding specifications. Without CFD, we would have had to go through a minimum of three prototypes, more likely several more. With CFD we moved from the beginning of the project to the development of an acceptable software prototype in only one day.”

Robert Preble, Project Engineer, Shaw Aero


Automotive related applications for FloEFD are:

  • Aerodynamics
  • Climate control
  • Electronics
  • Exhaust
  • Lighting/LEDs
  • Powertrain
  • Under the hood

“FloEFD from Mentor helps us to understand and optimize headlamps. Even very complex geometries and test conditions can be investigated with a minimum of effort. New features such as Monte-Carlo radiation and the LED module are especially helpful in speeding the development of very complex products.”

Peter Jauernig, head of department, Automotive Lighting


Engineers working in power-related industries can use FloEFD for:

  • Design of heat exchangers
  • Electronics cooling
  • Modeling fixtures, fittings and filters
  • Particulate and contaminant transfer

““The information generated by FloEFD…especially for the taxing complexity of cooler aerodynamics is far beyond data obtainable through physical measurement and experimentation.”

Guus Bertels, Bronswerk

General Manufacturing

FloEFD can also help engineers with the following applications:

  • Component cooling
  • Extrusion
  • Printer ink burn on
  • Pumps, fans and valves
  • Sail designs
  • Shower and sprinkler head design

The spray gun manufacturer uses FloEFD in their CAD environment to cut development time by 66%. Graco

“The use of software prototypes made it possible to explore a much wider design space than would have been possible with physical prototypes. It’s important to note that I achieved these results despite the fact that I am a design engineer without any training in CFD.”

Rick Anderson, Graco
