FloEFD for PTC Creo is the only computational fluid dynamics analysis tool that is truly embedded into Pro/ENGINEER and Creo.
It enables engineers to directly work on their CAD model for preparing and evaluating their concurrent CFD simulation:
It is the only CFD software delivering local user interfaces in Japanese, Chinese, French, German and Russian.
CAD-embedded simulation enables engineers to conduct analysis in the same user environment as design. Therefore, engineers can use the latest Creo CAD geometry for analysis to conduct multiple design studies and evaluate how the modifications influence the performance of the design without the hassle of data translation or reapplying boundary conditions and material properties.
The compare configuration and parametric study capability inside FloEFD enables engineers to understand the influence of changes in the geometry or boundary conditions on the results. Users can evaluate the design envelope by assessing results by numerical values, by graphs and by visual images and animations and thereby compare a wide range of project permutations.
FloEFD uses Cartesian meshing technology which is recognized as the most efficient framework for simulating fluid flows, heat and mass transfer. In addition, the meshing process can be automated easily for even the most complex CAD geometries. When coupled with an immersed boundary cut-cell approach, this form of preprocessing inside FloEFD gives unprecedented speedup in the overall design process.
FloEFD now includes sliding mesh modeling, letting you create more realistic simulations of rotating equipmentand transient flow behaviors, such as when fluid quantity is highly non-uniform around a rotating part.
FloEFD for Creo features an easy-to-use GUI with considerable intelligent automation built-in as standard:
