Compare Your Fluid Dynamics IQ to the Average Mechanical Engineer

Compare Your Fluid Dynamics IQ to the Average Mechanical Engineer

(12 September 2007) – A recent Flomerics survey investigating the opinions of mechanical design engineers on Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) analysis revealed that the vast majority (75%) of mechanical designers have heard of CFD. The same survey revealed that 80% of mechanical design engineers are not currently using CFD. The most common reason cited in the survey as to why relatively few mechanical design engineers are using CFD was that “most mechanical design engineers don’t have the necessary expertise and knowledge to use a CFD code.” However, many of them already have a working knowledge of the basic principles of fluid flow and heat transfer but they may not be aware of that fact. To help design engineers test their understanding, Flomerics has developed a Fluids IQ Test. The test consists of 17 questions and on the average requires 10 minutes to complete. Upon completing the Fluids IQ Test, participants will be able to see their score and how it compares against their peers who have also taken the test. They will also be able to request a copy of the correct answers. All mechanical engineers are encouraged to take the Fluids IQ Test for fun at

About Flomerics
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 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.
