Measuring and Optimizing Pressure Drop



During this webinar we will discuss the complexities of designing a valve while controlling pressure drop and what this means for the overall design of the finished product.  

To illustrate this, the presenter will show you how easy it is with FloEFD to prepare a valve design for analysis, analyze it and then evaluate the 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 familiar CAD interface
  • Visualize pressure and flow distributions in a virtual 3D environment
  • Understand the impact of design changes and how it can effect pressure
  • Export detailed reports to Microsoft’s Word and Excel
