New Version of Mentor Graphics FloEFD Concurrent Computational Fluid Dynamics

Mentor Graphics introduced the latest version of their FloEFD concurrent computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulation tool. FloEFD is now available with two new optional modules: (1) Advanced Module for combustion and hypersonic flows and (2) HVAC Module for radiation flow and comfort parameters. The new version of FloEFD now supports more languages (such as German, French, Japanese and Chinese). FloEFD helps mechanical engineers who may not be experts in general fluid dynamics or thermal simulation to effectively conduct analyses and to create better products faster.

Mentor Graphics FloTHERM 9 3D Computational Fluid Dynamics Software

Mentor Graphics introduced version nine of their FloTHERM 3D computational fluid dynamics (CFD) software for electronics cooling applications. FloTHERM v.9 features Bottleneck (Bn) and Shortcut (Sc) fields that help engineers identify where heat flow congestion occurs in the electronic design and why. It also identifies thermal shortcuts to quickly and efficiently resolve the design problem. Bn and the Sc fields elevate the use of simulation from an observation tool to a thermal design problem-solving tool. The FloTHERM v.9 product is available now.
