Mentor Graphics Announces FloEFD for PTC Creo

Mentor Graphics Corporation (NASDAQ: MENT) today announced the availability of its FloEFD™ v11.3 Concurrent Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) technology, the industry’s fully embedded solution for PTC’s Creo Parametric, Creo Elements/Pro, and Pro/ENGINEER® Wildfire® design software. Unlike other CFD software, Mentor Graphics® FloEFD for Creo works directly with native PTC product geometry to keep pace with ongoing design changes. Since designers are using the same geometry and a common user interface for CAD and analysis, FloEFD for Creo allows users to maintain a single set of data across the entire project design flow.

A key benefit in using Mentor Graphics FloEFD for Creo is “Concurrent CFD,” which can reduce simulation time by as much as 65 to 75 percent in comparison to traditional CFD tools. Concurrent CFD enables users to optimize product performance and reliability while reducing physical prototyping and development costs without time or material penalties.

PTC customers using FloEFD for Creo will realize a wide range of physical simulation capabilities for fluid flow, heat and mass transfer, including a special module for electronics cooling applications with extensive property libraries.

“As a ‘Platinum’ member of the PTC PartnerAdvantage™ Program, Mentor’s Mechanical Analysis Division provides advanced CFD products that are seamlessly integrated with our products,” stated Brian Thompson, vice president of MCAD Product Management from PTC.  “Mentor’s full support of FloEFD for Creo will help our customers eliminate design errors, reduce costs, and optimize designs involving heat transfer and fluid flow before physical prototypes.”

The FloEFD for Creo product is available and designers can download a free CFD software version at: www.mentor.com/products/mechanical/products/floefd/floefd-creo-trial-eval
