Mentor Graphics Announces New FloEFD Product with Unique Capabilities

Mentor Graphics Corporation announced the newest release of its leading frontloading computational fluid dynamics (CFD) FloEFD™ product targeting complex design challenges. Frontloading CFD refers to the practice of moving CFD simulation early into the design process, enabling design engineers to examine and evaluate design options, resulting in optimized product performance and reliability. The new FloEFD product provides the industry’s first simulation solution for water vapor absorption alongside several other lighting related functionalities.

With the latest version of FloEFD software, users can now simulate the sorption (when one substance permeates another) and desorption (changing from an adsorbed state to a gaseous or liquid state) processes. For example, plastic absorbs water and then releases it when environmental conditions change. This functionality is important for several key markets such as automotive lighting design where moisture needs to be minimized in light housings. Other automotive lighting related capabilities include radiation and spectrum for direction source modeling, and LED thermal-optical modeling to simulate LEDs with non-linear dependence of parameters on temperature.
