Mentor FloEFD is a concurrent CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) software for use in early-stage product design and is embedded within MCAD systems such as Creo, SolidWorks, CATIA and Siemens UG NX.
Mentor 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.
The FloEFD concurrent CFD approach spans up-front conceptual design from working prototypes to finished product. Fast to learn and easy to use, FloEFD eliminates the workflow complexity and meshing overheads of old-school CFD software.
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.
