FloEFD, an MCAD-embedded CFD simulation tool, helps engineers frontload computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and carry out parametric studies throughout the complete manufacturing processes. Frontloading refers to the practice of moving CFD simulation early into the design process where it can help engineers examine trends and eliminate less desirable options while also reducing simulation workflow time by as much as 75%.
Most companies rely on their design engineers to hand over their designs to CFD analysts to analyze proposed designs for flow and heat transfer effects. This process is highly inefficient, time consuming and is normally not in an MCAD environment.
FloEFD, however, for both Solid Edge and NX, allows design engineers to quickly test their own designs and discard their bad ones. Let’s take a look at five advantages FloEFD can offer businesses.
