Blue Ridge Numerics Introduces CFdesign Academic Instruction Program

CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- Jun 19, 2006 -- Blue Ridge Numerics, the worldwide leader in the emerging Upfront CFD software category, today announced the immediate availability of a special program designed to provide engineering students and faculty with affordable access to CFdesign for effective, hands-on instruction of fluid flow and heat transfer topics within existing MCAD-centric courses.

The CFdesign Academic Instruction Program was unveiled at the American Society of Engineering Educators annual conference currently in progress at the Chicago Hyatt. Blue Ridge developed the program around the needs and requirements expressed by university faculty involved primarily with the education of undergraduate mechanical engineers in Asia, Europe, and North America.

Already in use at dozens of universities around the world, CFdesign is often first implemented for senior design projects and later used to enhance existing courses. Harry S. Wildblood, Chairman of Project Design Activity at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign summarizes his experience with CFdesign, "We have used CFdesign successfully in our Senior Engineering Project Course for about four years. Its ease of use and associativity with native Autodesk Inventor 3-D models makes it especially applicable to our program in which students must get up to speed quickly to do customized analyses for design purposes. The cost, capability, easy management of licensing, and responsiveness of technical support personnel, has all made CFdesign a valuable asset to our project program."

Full Spectrum Simulation for Upfront Design Engineering

The CFdesign Academic Instruction Program includes native MCAD integration with all major systems (Autodesk Inventor, Catia, CoCreate, Pro/ENGINEER, SolidWorks, Solid Edge, and UGS NX) along with full mode heat transfer and full spectrum flow simulation functionality, including the ability to optimize 3-D designs involving flow-driven motion (turbines, for example) and motion-driven flow (pumps, for example).

Licensing and Pricing

CFdesign is available with an annual licensing option or perpetual licensing that includes five years of support and upgrades. North American pricing begins at $2500 for network implementation that supports as many concurrent users as necessary. Pricing and availability outside the U.S. varies.
