Mentor Unveils 2017 FloEFD Frontloading Computational Fluid Dynamics Award Winners


Reading time ( words)

Mentor, a Siemens business, has announced the winners of its second annual FloEFD Frontloading Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) Award. This award recognizes individuals who have successfully implemented the practice of moving CFD simulation early into their design process using the Mentor® award-winning FloEFD™ technology. This methodology reduces the overall simulation time by as much as 65-75 percent and offers x2 to x40 user productivity enhancement relative to traditional CFD approaches. 

A panel of judges selected the finalists based on submission criteria. Entrants were required to demonstrate the application of frontloading CFD with quantifiable results through published or publicly presented documentation. This included published technical and conference papers, PowerPoint presentations, articles, videos and/or website content that is accessible to the public. All winners were presented with their awards at the 2017 FloEFD Simulation Conference held in Berlin, Germany.

The First Place Award winner is Paul-Henri Matha from Renault in France for his presentation, Why Is Thermal Management Important for Automotive Lighting Systems, which was delivered at the 2016 FloEFD Simulation Conference in Frankfurt, Germany. Mr. Matha received a trophy and a $1,000 (USA) Amazon gift card.

Two runners-up were also selected. Koen Beyers, Voxdale, received his award for an article published in Engineering Edge titled, Bike Valley Builds a Wind Tunnel Using FloEFD. The article was based on his presentation at the 2016 FloEFD Simulation Conference as well. The other runner-up was Enrico Lorenz from Dr. Schneider Unternehmensgruppe GmbH for his article FloEFD Helps Dr. Schneider’s Mission: To Make the Car the Best Place in the World published in Engineering Edge.

“Mentor’s FloEFD award-winning frontloading CFD solution provides our customers with the ability to conduct simulation early in the design process for optimum design success,” stated Roland Feldhinkel, general manager of the Mentor Mechanical Analysis Division. “We congratulate our 2017 award recipients who have demonstrated the value of FloEFD by optimizing the performance of their products while saving critical design time.”

Happy Anniversary, Gerber Format: Looking Ahead to Digital Innovation

01/25/2019 | Patrick McGoff, Mentor, a Siemens business
This year, we celebrate the 55th anniversary of the introduction of the Gerber machine language format. We can thank H. Joseph Gerber, the man who took manual PCB design to the next level with the automated photoplotter, for giving us this format in 1964. Gerber immigrated to the United States in 1940 with his mother following the death of his father during the Holocaust. Gerber started Gerber Scientific Instrument Company in 1948 to commercialize his first patented invention—the variable scale.
