Flow Fields

In the past, it would take highly skilled Design Engineers—with both expert knowledge and experience—many man hours to understand the complexities of fluid flow behavior surrounding a design.

Save valuable time over physical testing

Today, a technology is available designed purely for the engineering fraternity, aimed at helping engineers to perform these tasks in a ‘3 dimensional virtual’ environment, saving many hours/days of physical testing in facilities such as costly wind tunnels.

Concurrent CFD software FloEFD helps engineers design better, more reliable products, quicker and cheaper.

Virtual 3D testing opens possibilities

Engineers acquire the opportunity to understand the reasons behind product failures, to get ideas on how to improve a products performance using ‘what-if’ scenarios and to gain a detailed insight into a product’s full functionality - something not possible using physical methods.

Decrease time-to-market

Using FloEFD in the early stages of the design process will help eliminate the need for multiple prototypes; it will help increase reliability, save time, save money and get a product to market faster.
