The Mentor Graphics 1D-3D CFD simulation software combination enables engineers to characterize the more complex elements of a mechanical system with full 3D for analysis and easily insert those models into the 1D system-level model for simulation. This 1D-3D CFD solution enables digital prototyping information earlier in the product development process, accelerating design and development cycles. And because engineers and designers can examine more variables across a wider range of design scenarios to arrive at an optimal system definition, it increases productivity and minimizes design risk and re-spins.
