News Fluent Inc., the worldwide leader in computational fluid dynamics (CFD) software and services, announces the immediate release of FloWizard V2.1. This is the product's third release in one and a half years, ensuring that it is firmly established as the leading rapid flow modeling and thermal analysis engineering software for engineering designers available today.

FloWizard V2.1 introduces important new capabilities to designers, such as new CAD connections for Pro/ENGINEER, SolidWorks, and UGS' NX, allowing users to send their models to FloWizard with the click of a button. These connections include unique model preparation and model checking tools that assist users in efficiently transforming their CAD models into CFD results.

CAD connections also ensure that FloWizard fits seamlessly into today's virtual design processes within global engineering organizations.

The software also includes a new rotating machinery model to predict the flow and pressure field in pumps, fans, turbines, and impellers. This dramatically expands the scope of problems that designers can analyze with FloWizard. Additional enhancements include improvements in geometry processing, mesh generation, solver efficiency, and post-processing.

"We have been very pleased with the success of FloWizard internationally, especially in Japan" said André Bakker, the FloWizard Product Manager at Fluent Inc. "And, in order to be able to serve customers better in this important market, FloWizard V2.1 now offers the user a choice between a new Japanese language interface and the original English language interface. This is expected to greatly expand the adoption of FloWizard amongst equipment designers in Japan."

Rapid flow modeling is an approach to CFD simulation aimed at reducing overall product design time while increasing efficiency by allowing for quick engineering design validation throughout a product's lifecycle. FloWizard makes use of a high level of automation that is the key to its success and tasks that conventionally require a lot of manual intervention including meshing, solution steering, and reporting, are performed automatically by FloWizard.

The product is fully upwardly compatible to the popular software, FLUENT 6.2, the world's most widely used CFD tool. FloWizard therefore permits design engineers to do more and better CFD analyses, faster than ever before.

Paul Bemis, Fluent Inc.'s Vice President of Marketing, said of this release, "Rapid Flow Modeling represents the result of encapsulating thousands of man-hours of our CFD knowledge into a tool that is easy to use, and quick to learn. FloWizard is an excellent tool for supporting early design decisions with fast, thorough analysis thereby reducing costly design errors, improving product quality and time to market."

FloWizard V2.1 is available for immediate shipment. For information on product configuration and pricing please contact a Fluent sales representative (Phone: (603) 643-2600 in the U.S.) or visit the FloWizard website to request a one-on-one product demo or to find your local contact.
