Measuring and Optimizing Pressure Drop
On-demand Web Seminar
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
About the Presenter
Chris is a Senior Applications Engineer and Thermo-Fluid Engineering Supervisor for the Mechanical Analysis Division (formerly Flomerics) of Mentor Graphics. He is responsible for technical leadership of Mentor’s FloEFD product line in North America.
Prior to Mentor Graphics, Chris worked for NIKA and CD-adapco, starting his career in the commercial CFD industry in 1995. His engineering roles through the years have included consulting and technical support, but his main role and interest is in pre-sales application engineering to assist the sales teams.
Chris received his BS in Aerospace Engineering from the University of Texas at Austin, and his MS in Mechanical Engineering from Texas A&M University.
