Boeing 757 Air Flow Analysis using FloEFD
On-demand Web Seminar
This web seminar demonstrates the unique capabilities of FloEFD, Mentor Graphics' stand-alone, CAD-integrated computational fluid dynamics (CFD) software. The web seminar will highlight key technologies that make CFD analysis practical and valuable to mechanical design engineers: Time savings through automated adaptive meshing, The impact of design variant analysis, Ease-of-use through the engineering user interface.
These features will be highlighted in the context of a Boeing 757 aerodynamic analysis example.
This web seminar demonstrates how to perform an external aerodynamic analysis of air flow around an aircraft, using a Boeing 757 as an example. It demonstrates how to set up and solve the case, highlighting key technologies that make CFD analysis practical and valuable to mechanical design engineers.

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.
