Mentor Graphics FloEFD for Siemens NX PLM Software

Mentor Graphics introduced Mentor Graphics FloEFD for Siemens NX technology. The new FloEFD features concurrent computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulation. It is seamlessly integrated with the Siemens NX product lifecycle management (PLM) software. FloEFD for Siemens NX software works directly with native NX geometry using Finite Volume mathematical techniques, which results in more robust and faster simulations.

Mentor FloEFD for Siemens NX Features

  • Seamlessly integrated with the Siemens NX product lifecycle management (PLM) software
  • Does not require translation or copies (single set of data across the entire project design process)
  • Directly uses Siemens NX geometry and solid model information such as features and parameters to help simulate designs in real-world conditions
  • Concurrent computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulation
  • Reduces simulation time by as much as 65% to 75% compared to traditional CFD tools
  • Finite Volume mathematical techniques for more robust and faster simulations
  • Uses a unique hexahedral immersed boundary meshing approach
  • More accurate and computationally efficient simulations compared to tetrahedral and prismatic elements found in other tools
  • Supports a full range of physical simulation capabilities: highly turbulent flow fields, compressible flows, combustion and cavity modelling
  • Optimizes product performance and reliability while reducing physical prototyping and development costs without time or material penalties
  • Ideal for specialist CFD analysts, multi-tasking engineers and designers
