Flomerics Ltd. has announced the release of the latest version of
its popular Engineering Fluid Dynamics (EFD) analysis software
suite. Version 7.3 includes: 64-bit processor support for increased
analysis power, speed and user convenience; support of CATIA V5 R17
in both 32- and 64-bit formats; and an integrated interface with
MSC Patran for finite element analysis. The new capabilities are
now available for EFD.Pro - a fully embedded CFD solution within
the Pro/ENGINEER environment; EFD.V5, - a fully embedded CFD
solution within the CATIA environment, and EFD.Lab – a
general-purpose fluid analysis tool that includes a built-in solid
modeler. The EFD product family is used by best-in-class
manufacturers to develop and optimize various products within
aerospace, automotive, HVAC, valves and regulator, medical device
as well as fire protection industries.
“We strongly believe that for fluid flow analysis to become an integral part of the design process it must use native 3D CAD data and not force you to change your design process” said Ivo Weinhold, line of business manager, Engineering Fluid Dynamics, at Flomerics. “By offering access to the right information at the right time, version 7.3 empowers the engineer to focus on developing good quality products as opposed to transferring data back and forth.”
Technical Notes for Version 7.3
Among the most significant features of version 7.3 are:
• 64-bit processor support: The EFD family can now be run on 64-bit machines. As a result, users will be able to analyze very large problems, those generally regarded as too large or too time consuming, directly on the desktop. With a scalable solution that can readily adapt to user needs, the EFD suite can now be deployed across the enterprise.
•Integrated interface with MSC Patran: To help engineers solve design problems involving both fluid and structural issues, EFD results can now be applied as loads for structural analysis inside Patran, the popular MSC pre- and postprocessor. Fully integrated into Patran, the automated interface drastically reduces the amount of time necessary for updating analysis models.
•Support of CATIA V5 R17: To ensure full compatibility with the latest release of CATIA, EFD.V5 now offers full support of CATIA V5 R17 in both 32- and 64-bit formats. Therefore organizations who have standardized on CATIA V5 R17 can maintain an up-to-date development platform.
EFD 7.3 is available for immediate shipment. Interested readers may download their choice of free EFD software demos at: www.nika.biz
Flomerics is a world-leading developer of engineering simulation software and services for analysis of fluid flow, heat transfer and electromagnetic radiation. Flomerics' business model, called "Design-Class Analysis" is drastically different from traditional analysis because its software is designed to be embedded deeply into the design process and used by mainstream design engineers, not just by analysis specialists.
