Free CFD Web Seminar - 'Simulating and Optimizing Flow 
Fields' - Visualizing Flow Fields In and Around Complex 

December 09 2009: 02.00 PM – 02.45 PM US/Eastern

This FREE 45 minute web seminar will focus on how 
concurrent Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) is used to 
visualize flow fields in and around complex objects. 
Concurrent CFD enables users to conduct CFD analysis 
entirely within a mechanical CAD (MCAD) environment, where 
it is used concurrently with all the other tools in the 
normal menu structure. As a result, mechanical engineers 
can treat CFD as a routine operation where designs can be 
analyzed and optimized during the design process and 
deliver better, more reliable products in a shortened time 

A good example to demonstrate the complexities of flow 
fields and its ultimate influence on temperature management 
is a convection oven. Convection ovens can offer better 
cooking quality and lower energy consumption over 
conventional ovens. The enhanced heat transfer produced 
from the forced air movement results in reduced oven 
heating times. However, airflow patterns within the oven 
are not uniform because the number of shelves, trays and 
the loading of items can have a significant impact on the 
flow patterns within the space and can result in un-even 
temperatures in different parts of the oven space. To 
illustrate this, the presenter will demonstrate how the 
flow field within the oven may be simulated and visualized 
in detail, enabling the designer to better understand the 
ovens effectiveness. Simulations of various tray-loading 
scenarios will be examined and design recommendations will 
be discussed. >> Learn More About Concurrent CFD
