Application CEEMO Engineering used EFD.Lab, an easy-to-use general purpose engineering fluid dynamics software from Flomerics Ltd., to test and optimize a new concept car. The entire design optimization process for the 2-seater chassis took about eight weeks despite the design engineer being a novice in the use of fluid analysis software.

“I am an aerospace engineer by background but I had never used CFD software so we did an exhaustive search to find the right tool for the design engineer,” said Evan van Wolfswinkel, an Engineer at CEEMO.

Application Eclipse Combustion used EFD.Lab, a general purpose engineering fluid dynamics software from Flomerics Ltd., to quickly design and optimize a large industrial air heater with burner in record time.

“EFD.Lab helped us design a better air heater. Based on the analysis results, we even took out some of the parts we normally used as extra reserves to cover any eventuality,” said Ad Heijmans, development manager at Eclipse. The entire design and verification process took less than two months: two weeks for analysis and the rest on communicating with their customer.
