News Blue Ridge Numerics, Inc., the leader in upfront CFD software, has announced the full integration of CFdesign 2010 with Autodesk Revit.

This revolutionary development allows architecture and MEP engineers for the first time to run computational fluid dynamic (CFD) studies seamlessly from the Revit environment. Previously, traditional CFD software presented too many technical and time consuming barriers to be used by engineers at AEC firms.

CFdesign provides a straightforward flexible workflow with full associativity to the Revit model. This integration means Revit users won’t have to export/import their models. Now real world validation can be conducted on models at their desktop to understand how design changes can help achieve environmental objectives and energy certifications.

“The CFdesign and Autodesk Revit integration opens new doors for AEC firms. Never before have architecture and MEP engineers been so empowered to look at multi-scenario comprehensive fluid flow and heat transfer studies that seamlessly integrate with the Revit environment,” explains Derrek Cooper, product manager, Blue Ridge Numerics. “CFdesign 2010 enables engineers to quickly create and compare different models and make important design decisions early in the development process. AEC firms now have the ability to offer their customers more effective design options with greater efficiency and with less risk.”

With CFdesign architecture and MEP engineers can both validate and explore their Revit models for thermal comfort, energy audits, solar loading, smoke egress/ LMA, occupancy safety, and external wind loading. In addition, CFdesign allows you to perform simulations for data center cooling and clean room design.
