Frontloading CFD Awards Announced
Posted Wednesday November 29 at 8:12pm
Mentor, a Siemens business, today announced the winners of its second annual FloEFD Frontloading Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) Award. This award recognizes individuals who have successfully implemented the practice of moving CFD simulation early into their design process using the Mentor® award-winning FloEFD™ technology. This methodology reduces the overall simulation time by as much as 65-75 percent and offers x2 to x40 user productivity enhancement relative to traditional CFD approaches.
The Influence of Meshing Strategies on Simulation Efficiency
Posted Sunday November 26 at 7:2pm
Pointwise will host a webinar on The Influence of Meshing Strategies on Simulation Efficiency on 13 December at 10am CST.
Meshing strategies have a direct influence on the accuracy and efficiency of CFD simulations. Once a meshing decision is made, it affects not only the types, number, orientation, and placement of grid elements, but also simulation stability, convergence, and accuracy. The mesh generation process, therefore, plays a critical role in providing accurate, timely results.
