Announcements Mentor Graphics will host Simulating and Optimizing Flow Fields - Visualizing Flow Fields In and Around Complex Models on December 09 2009 from 2:002.45 PM US/Eastern

This free 45 minute web seminar will focus on how concurrent Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) is used to visualize flow fields in and around complex objects.

Sponsor CFD Review

Concurrent CFD enables users to conduct CFD analysis entirely within a mechanical CAD (MCAD) environment, where it is used concurrently with all the other tools in the normal menu structure. As a result, mechanical engineers can treat CFD as a routine operation where designs can be analyzed and optimized during the design process and deliver better, more reliable products in a shortened time scale.

A good example to demonstrate the complexities of flow fields and its ultimate influence on temperature management is a convection oven. Convection ovens can offer better cooking quality and lower energy consumption over conventional ovens. The enhanced heat transfer produced from the forced air movement results in reduced oven heating times.

However, airflow patterns within the oven are not uniform because the number of shelves, trays and the loading of items can have a significant impact on the flow patterns within the space and can result in un-even temperatures in different parts of the oven space.

To illustrate this, the presenter will demonstrate how the flow field within the oven may be simulated and visualized in detail, enabling the designer to better understand the oven's effectiveness.

Simulations of various tray-loading scenarios will be examined and design recommendations will be discussed.

What You will Learn:

  • Understand the impact of design or loading changes and how it can effect the flow field
  • Visualize temperature and flow distributions in a virtual 3D environment
  • Perform fluid flow and analysis using a FloEFD wizard and a familiar CAD interface
  • Efficient ways to share results with design teams and customers

Who Should Attend:

  • Design Engineers
  • Mechanical Engineers
  • Product Design Managers
  • Engineers who are interested in a CAD-embedded analysis solution
  • Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire users
