Blue Ridge Numerics Releases Upfront CFD Buyer’s Guide

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — July 22, 2010Blue Ridge Numerics, Inc., the leader in upfront computational fluid dynamics (CFD) software, today released for immediate download an Upfront CFD Buyer’s Guide for engineers and managers seeking information before purchasing CFD software. This Free Guide discusses the advantages of using upfront CFD early in the design process where companies have discovered time and cost savings gained using product simulation.

Wading through tons of information on flow and thermal simulation software tools can be a challenge. Many traditional CFD options in the market will not support a company’s CAD-driven product development process or the engineering staff’s time commitment to one task. Engineers downloading this guide will be introduced to a shopping list of specific capabilities that will ensure the best upfront CFD solution is purchased.

A Few of the Key Elements Needed in an Effective CFD Solution:

  • Simulate multiple design options – the ability to simulate multiple designs and view them at one time to make direct comparisons, upfront in the design process where it is most effective.
  • Make faster, more accurate decisions - leverage native geometric models while working in a familiar CAD-environment and seamlessly integrating with the CFD-environment to run fluid flow and thermal studies.
  • Achieve the innovation – the ability to cut the time and expense associated with physical prototyping which frees engineering resources to create more innovative products that are associated with today’s successful companies.

“The upfront CFD Buyer’s Guide is a must-have for engineers, managers, and executives seeking information on improving their company’s design processes and developing a more effective path to innovative product design.” says Paul Whalen, Marketing Manager, Blue Ridge Numerics. “Today’s volatile business environment demands that new product centric companies must have engineering software tools that lead them to a distinct competitive advantage and solid profits. Accepting a trade-off between process and solution capabilities means they could end up with expensive shelfware.”

About CFdesign

Using CFdesign engineers are able to make insightful design decisions based on fluid flow and heat transfer simulations while continuing to work in their CAD environment. The simulations begin from within the CAD package using the design study manager, and the native model along with its associative information is opened within the CFdesign design study environment. The unique multi-scenario design study environment in CFdesign 2010 allows engineers to view multiple designs at one time and visually compare the different results. CFdesign enables engineers to obtain accurate simulation results early in the development process where the value of true upfront computational fluid dynamic (CFD) software is greatest.
