FloEFD

The fastest CFD solution from MCAD model to manufactured product

FloEFD is a full-featured 3D computational fluid dynamics analysis solution built into major MCAD systems such as CreoCATIA V5Siemens NX, Solid Edge and SolidWorks. It tightly integrates with Inventor.

As an award-winning frontloading CFD solution, FloEFD enables users to move CFD simulation early into the design process where it can help engineers examine trends and dismiss less desirable design options. Fast to learn and easy to use, FloEFD eliminates the workflow complexity and meshing overheads of old-school CFD software.

FloEFD is the only fully CAD-embedded CFD software on the market

FloEFD helps design engineers conduct up-front, concurrent CFD analysis using the familiar MCAD interface. This reduces design times by orders of magnitude when compared to traditional methods and products.

Concurrent CFD can reduce simulation time by as much as 65 to 75 percent over traditional CFD tools. It allows optimization of product performance and reliability while also reducing physical prototyping and development costs, without time or material penalties.

  • Embedded in the leading CAD systems for concurrent design simulation
  • Easy-to-use with full-featured 3D fluid flow and heat transfer analysis
  • Numerous engineering models such as porous media, PCB and LED model
  • Electronics cooling module for detailed thermal modeling of electronic models
  • HVAC module for detailed modeling of HVAC applications, including comfort parameters
  • Automated Cartesian immersed boundary mesher
  • Advanced module for more detailed modeling of advanced flow features such as combustion and hypersonic flow
  • LED module for more accurate thermal modeling of LEDs and other lighting sources with LED thermal model and Monte Carlo radiation model
  • Up to 75% faster simulation cycle with CAD embedded Concurrent CFD

Aerospace & Defense

AerodynamicsFloEFD applications within the aerospace and defense industries:

  • Aerodynamics
  • Anti-icing systems
  • Avionics cooling
  • Cabin comfort modeling
  • Component design – valves, nozzles, pumps, manifolds and filters
  • Contaminant control
  • Engines and engine parts
  • Environment control systems (ECS)
  • Hydraulic systems
  • Lighting/LEDs
  • Subsonic to hypersonic

CFD simulation dramatically reduced the time needed to meet our customer’s demanding specifications. Without CFD, we would have had to go through a minimum of three prototypes, more likely several more. With CFD we moved from the beginning of the project to the development of an acceptable software prototype in only one day.

Automotive

floefd bikeAutomotive related applications for FloEFD are:

  • Aerodynamics
  • Climate control
  • Electronics
  • Exhaust
  • Lighting/LEDs
  • Powertrain
  • Under the hood

FloEFD from Mentor helps us to understand and optimize headlamps. Even very complex geometries and test conditions can be investigated with a minimum of effort. New features such as Monte-Carlo radiation and the LED module are especially helpful in speeding the development of very complex products.

Bronswerk Heat Transfer BV

SUCCESS STORY

Using FloEFD, engineers at Bronswerk Heat Transfer BV were able to make a breakthrough in the design of their powerful cooling fan systems needed to chill the gas or oil as it emerges from the well heads.

Physical measurements were essential to the project’s success, but couldn’t produce the needed data in every case. With simulation we were able to look at static pressure distributions through a flow field and get information on the total pressure, which is a direct measure of the entropy in the system. A loss in total pressure is energy loss, and CFD delivers a color picture of where the losses are. We could never have hoped to measure that with physical measurements alone.

Power

floefd heatexchangeEngineers working in power-related industries can use FloEFD for:

  • Burners
  • Design of heat exchangers
  • Electronics cooling
  • Modeling fixtures, fittings and filters
  • Particulate and contaminant transfer

The information generated by FloEFD…especially for the taxing complexity of cooler aerodynamics is far beyond data obtainable through physical measurement and experimentation.

General Manufacturing

FloEFD can also help engineers with the following applications:

  • Component cooling
  • Extrusion
  • Extrusion tools
  • Injection mold cooling
  • Printer ink burn on
  • Pumps, fans and valves
  • Sail designs
  • Shower and sprinkler head design

Graco

SUCCESS STORY

The spray gun manufacturer uses FloEFD in their CAD environment to cut development time by 66%.

The use of software prototypes made it possible to explore a much wider design space than would have been possible with physical prototypes. It’s important to note that I achieved these results despite the fact that I am a design engineer without any training in CFD.
