Print version Email story Tweet story
News Desktop Engineering is running an article where they asked several cfd vendors how to increase adoption of "upfront" CFD, that is, use of CFD during the design phase of product development.
Overall, the participants agreed that greater awareness of the potential benefits and the tools available would be important to the next growth spurt. They also agreed that more intelligence built into the software would help drive this market—and that the availability of faster low-cost computer platforms and inexpensive memory were already helping to grow the market.

One vendor was quoted as saying “The upfront tool is meant for initial analyses, using the native CAD model. It does automatic meshing, and this avoids the biggest area of possible error”.
