Computer-aided design (CAD) is the use of computer systems to assist in the creation, modification, analysis, or optimization of a design. CAD software is used to increase the productivity of the designer, improve the quality of design, improve communications through documentation, and to create a database for manufacturing.

CAD software for mechanical design uses either vector based graphics to depict the objects of traditional drafting, or may also produce raster graphics showing the overall appearance of designed objects. However, it involves more than just shapes. As in the manual drafting of technical and engineering drawings, the output of CAD must convey information, such as materials, processes, dimensions, and tolerances, according to application-specific conventions.

CAD may be used to design curves and figures in two-dimensional (2D) space; or curves, surfaces, and solids in three-dimensional (3D) space.

Computer-aided design is one of the many tools used by engineers and designers and is used in many ways depending on the profession of the user and the type of software in question.

CAD is one part of the whole Digital Product Development (DPD) activity within the Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) processes, and as such is used together with other tools, which are either integrated modules or stand-alone products, such as:

- Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) is the process of managing the entire lifecycle of a product from its conception, through design and manufacture, to service and disposal.

- Computer-aided engineering (CAE) is the broad usage of computer software to aid in engineering tasks. CAE tools are being used, for example, to analyze the robustness and performance of components and assemblies. The term encompasses simulation, validation, and optimization of products and manufacturing tools.

- In mathematics, finite element method (FEM) is a numerical technique for finding approximate solutions to boundary value problems. It uses variational methods to minimize an error function and produce a stable solution.

- The computer numerical control (CNC) programs produce a computer file that is interpreted to extract the commands needed to operate a particular machine via a postprocessor, and then loaded into the CNC machines for production.

- Product data management (PDM) is the use of software or other tools to track and control data related to a particular product. The data tracked usually involves the technical specifications of the product, specifications for manufacture and development, and the types of materials that will be required to produce goods.

It's similar to SolidWorks Flow Simulation (SolidWorks Flow Simulation is part of SolidWorks Premium), but has more flow & thermal simulation options than last one.

FloEFD is a full-featured 3D fluid flow, heat transfer analysis package that is both fast to learn and to use because it doesn’t come with the numerical complexity and meshing overheads of traditional high-end CFD.

The award-winning FloEFD is part of a new breed of CFD tools called Concurrent CFD. FloEFD is a full-featured general purpose CFD tool serving the needs of Inventor, Solid Edge, SolidWorks as well as other popular MCAD systems. FloEFD combines all simulation steps - starting with use of your 3D CAD data for model preparation, to mesh generation, solving and results visualization - in one easy-to-use package.

Concurrent CFD can reduce simulation time significantly in comparison to traditional CFD tools and enables users to optimize product performance and reliability while reducing physical prototyping and development costs without time or material penalties.

Unlike other 3rd party CFD programs, FloEFD for Creo, FloEFD for CATIA V5 and FloEFD for NX work directly with native Creo Parametric, native CATIA V5 and native Siemens NX geometry, respectively – with no translation or copies – in order to keep pace with on-going design changes. FloEFD for Creo, FloEFD for CATIA V5 and FloEFD for NX have the same “look and feel” so you can focus on solving your problem instead of learning a new environment.

These versions directly use Creo Parametric and Wildfire, CATIA V5 and Siemens NX geometry and solid model information such as features and parameters to help you simulate your designs in real-world conditions. Direct use of native geometry is an extremely powerful feature since it provides you with functionality that is not easily offered by other CFD programs.

Since you’re using the same exact geometry for CAD and analysis, you maintain one set of data across your product design process, and your analysis is always in tune with your design.

Mentor Graphics Corp., announced its next-generation FloTHERM product featuring a new native Windows graphical user interface (GUI) to handle pre-processing and large models with ease, targeting today’s most advanced electronic designs. The latest release continues the product line’s 25 year history of technical product innovation and was developed based on extensive user feedback.

The new FloTHERM product was developed from user feedback via the company’s IDEAS website, soliciting requests on software enhancements and features that Mentor customers recommended and voted on as the most popular. Over 40 IDEAS requests were fulfilled, resulting in the new Windows-compliant GUI, parallel CFD solver and efficient handling of massive models for pre-processing, solving and post-processing.

New FloTHERM product capabilities include:

- The new Windows-compliant user interface can handle models with thousands of objects. A query-based search function, together with data columns integrated with the model node tree, provides critical model checking capabilities to define data, identify errors and to further enhance the FloTHERM user experience.
- A new parallel solver provides scalability and fast performance for multi-processors. This capability was the #1 requested functionality from the Mentor customer-feedback portal, and makes this FloTHERM release on average two to three times, and up to 14 times, faster than previous versions.
- The addition of new modeling objects to represent racks of equipment and data center cooling devices enables users to simulate and optimize everything from a chip to an entire room.
- The transient thermostatic control modeling functionality allows model inputs to be varied in time and as a function of the temperature during a transient simulation. A key benefit from this feature is the ability to reduce component power dissipation, either the component’s own temperature, or those from external stimuli. Customers involved with thermostatic control systems, such as consumer electronics, computing and hand-held telephony and tablets find this new functionality helpful.
- The FloTHERM product now also supports fluid-structure interaction through a mesh-based parallel code coupling interface (MpCCI) bridge developed at the Fraunhofer Institute SCAI. Now engineers can export CFD analysis data for finite element analysis (FEA) with a wide range of popular structural simulation programs thereby enabling users to conduct multi-disciplinary analyses.

 

FloTHERM XT software enables the industry's first integrated MDA-EDA electronics cooling simulation solution--from conceptual through detailed design--to dramatically shorten the process.

This solution addresses two of today's trends which are electronic challenges and geometric complexity. The electronic challenges are driven by increasing speed, density, and power consumption of ICs, PCBs and electronic systems. The increasing geometric complexity is driven by decreasing size and the increased influence of industrial design which requires handling of complex shapes. The FloTHERM XT technology efficiently interconnects mechanical design automation (MDA) and electronic design automation (EDA) domains and addresses the needs of design engineers as well as thermal specialists.

This electronics cooling simulation solution enables earlier virtual prototyping, fewer design iterations, and advanced "what-if" analysis for improved product quality and faster time-to-market benefits. Key markets where the FloTHERM XT product can benefit design teams from components to systems of electronic applications are industries such as automotive, aerospace, telecommunications, computing, industrial automation and consumer electronics.

Combining the electronics cooling DNA from the Mentor Graphics(R) Corporation's market-leading FloTHERM(R) thermal analysis software, and Concurrent Computational Fluid Dynamic (Concurrent CFD) technology from the FloEFD(TM) product, the FloTHERM XT solution offers the power and performance to solve complex electronics systems design problems. The product's easy-to-use interface is fully configurable so new users can customize the functionality features on the screen, providing a scalable user experience that can be adapted as the needs of the design project change.

Imported or CAD-generated geometries work seamlessly with the FloTHERM XT's SmartPart library of models, and automatic meshing and data convergence provide significant reduction in execution times. It also provides an easy and intuitive direct interface to enterprise platforms such as the market-leading Mentor Expedition(R) Enterprise solution. The direct integration of the FloTHERM XT product with PCB design flows will reduce time-consuming data translation and costly errors. As a result, FloTHERM XT is the only solution on the market that allows engineers to work effortlessly with geometry created in the MDA or EDA world.

FloVENT, is powerful computational fluid dynamics (CFD) software that predicts 3D airflow, heat transfer, contamination distribution and comfort indices in and around buildings of all types and sizes.

Flowmaster - simulation software solution for thermo-fluid systems. The latest release contains several significant features for pre-processing, simulation, data management, and design collaboration.

Mentor Graphics Flowmaster 7.9.1 $45

 

Mentor Graphics Corporation announced several new capabilities for its Flowmaster 7.9.1 simulation software solution for thermo-fluid systems. The latest release contains several significant features for pre-processing, simulation, data management, and design collaboration.

The new Flowmaster “experiments” capability harnesses the power of robust simulation within an exploratory methodology. It allows users to create response surfaces and export meta-model data as either standard ANSI C code or as S-Functions for use in a real-time environment providing support for hardware-in-the-loop simulations. Using a Latin Square algorithm helps users generate unique combinations of distributed input values between specific bounds. This ability creates an ideal foundation for designing experiments, and the creation of meta-models and response surfaces that characterize a Flowmaster system response.

Additionally, Monte Carlo simulations can be performed to produce simulation results based on a probability distribution generated from a mean and standard deviation for selected input parameters. This allows the effect of small variations in input values to be examined and allows the Flowmaster product to be used in risk analysis and quality control environments such as Design for Six Sigma (DFSS).

With this latest release, systems engineers can now implement an integrated native 1D-3D solution by leveraging the power of the Flowmaster and FloEFD products. Computational Sciences Expert Group (CSEG) provides simulation services to automotive and aerospace OEMs by providing predictive analytical capability in the product design cycle.

Additional capabilities found in this latest Flowmaster product release, targeting aerospace and automotive systems design applications, include:

- Improved thermal bridge for heat transfer analysis which automatically recognizes the transition between different flow regimes
- Dynamic journal bearing based on the popular Booker and Martin modeling for fluid flow analyses
- Advanced heat exchangers used to predict pressure drop and heat duty for single phase, cross-flow, compact heat exchangers
- Traceable data management for project sharing and effective project management.
