“FloWizard is the easiest to use CFD software developed to date,” says Dr. André Bakker, Product Manager for FloWizard. “This is important because FloWizard can now be successfully utilized by a much larger segment of the engineering population making it possible for companies to apply the benefits of CFD analysis to an even broader range of engineering activities.”

FloWizard allows engineers to quickly evaluate fluid forces, temperature fields, and other flow phenomena for a wide variety of industrial applications from their CAD geometries. The advantages of this type of analysis include improved overall design and quality, reduced costs through the rapid elimination of poor designs, and the identification and further optimization of promising outcomes earlier in the design cycle. In addition, FloWizard is customizable so that specialized applications can be developed to meet specific company needs. It is the first CFD software to include peer-to-peer collaboration as a standard feature, enabling geographically dispersed teams of engineers and fluid flow specialists to work together in both performing and reviewing their fluid flow simulations.

FloWizard shares its underlying components with Fluent’s other leading software products. It is powered by the industry standard FLUENT V6 general-purpose CFD analysis solvers to ensure the greatest accuracy. Geometry manipulation and mesh generation components utilize the advanced GAMBIT preprocessing software. This combination ensures full binary compatibility with Fluent V6 the world’s most commonly used CFD software.

FloWizard’s automated flow volume extraction, geometry clean-up and healing, and meshing tools make it very straightforward for an engineer to rapidly turn a CAD model into a fluid flow model without requiring extensive data input. Results are readily visualized with path line and plane cut animations, and, when combined with an automated HTML solution report generation tool, further reduce the time it takes to produce a fully documented CFD analysis from a CAD model.

FloWizard is available for immediate delivery. For information on product configuration and pricing, please contact a Fluent Sales Representative at www.fluent.com/contact/index.htm?type=lead or visit the FloWizard website www.fluent.com/direct/wiz
