Latest Release of FloEFD CFD software minimises time and effort

Mentor Graphics has announced the latest release of its leading general purpose, front-loading computational fluid dynamics (CFD) FloEFD solution, said to offer greater accuracy and user productivity.

Updated features in this new version include improved mesh handling, an enhanced transient solver, a robust EDA interface, and an interface to Abaqus Finite Element Analysis (FEA) software for stress analysis. The software is especially suited to engineers in the automotive, aerospace and electronics industries.

The latest version of the FloEFD product offers new capabilities for minimising user time and effort spent on meshing. It can automatically fill gaps of specified size to quickly make the model watertight, thereby eliminating the time and necessity to adjust the original geometry. The equidistant refinement capability lets users build multilevel uniform meshes around the body or surface of the model with one click. And the mesh preview visualisation tool helps users achieve the desired mesh with ease and speed.

The FloEFD product is available as a stand-alone and/or a CAD-embedded tool supporting MCAD platforms including Creo, CATIA V5, and Siemens NX.
