Wilsonville, OR, United States, 2016/06/02 - Mentor Graphics Corporation today announced the call-for-entries for its first annual FloEFD™ Frontloading Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) Award - Mentor.com. NASDAQ: MENT
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. All entrants must be a user of the Mentor Graphics® FloEFD product, the award-winning, full-featured 3D computational fluid dynamics analysis solution. A panel of expert judges will review the submissions and select a final winner and two runners up, who will receive cash prizes and a plaque.
