Simulating and Optimizing Heat Transfer in Product Design using CFD
On-demand Web Seminar
Join us for a complimentary 45-minute web seminar, where the presenter will discuss the complexities of designing and integrating cooling into injection mold tooling while still managing heat and what this means for the overall design of the finished produced product.
To illustrate this, the presenter will demonstrate how easy it is to prepare a MCAD design for CFD analysis, analyze it and then evaluate the results using Mentor Graphics award winning CFD software FloEFD. The presenter will then go on to show you how to create detailed reports for your management/design teams in Microsoft Word and Excel with a simple in-built wizard. She will then demonstrate how to perform “what-if” analysis by simply modifying the MCAD geometry and viewing the simulation results for the new model.
The overall goal is to help you design better quality products with fewer reliability problems quicker than ever before, helping you and your team to reduce costs and improve return on investment.
What You Will Learn
- How CFD software can help you improve your existing equipment design processes
- How to quickly perform analysis using a FloEFD wizards
- Visualize heat distribution in a virtual 3D environment
- Understand the impact of design changes and how it can affect temperatures
- How you can analyze ‘what if’ designs before prototype build in the upfront stage
- How easy it is to provide detailed Word and Excel reports to your design and management teams
About the Presenter
Alexandra Francois-Saint-Cyr is the Applications Engineering Manager for North America at Mentor Graphics, Mechanical Analysis Division (Previously Flomerics). For the past 8 years, she has been working on promoting the use of the Mentor Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) software by conducting training classes, seminars and software demonstrations.
After graduating from ESSTIN, France’s State Graduate School of Engineering back in 1997, Alex studied to improve passenger comfort in the trains at Alstom Transport by using CFD software FloVENT. In 1999, she moved to the United States where she received her MSME from the University of Central Florida. There she worked on a meso-scale centrifugal compressor project, her research leading to the ‘Best Technical Paper’ award in the Advanced Energy Systems Division at the International ASME show in 2000
