Blue Ridge Numerics Launches CFdesign V9 for CoCreate

Upfront CFD Empowers CoCreate OneSpace Modeling Engineers With Flow and Thermal Tools to Prove Out Design Concepts Early in the Design Cycle

CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- February 6, 2007 -- Blue Ridge Numerics is officially releasing CFdesign® upfront CFD software for the thousands of high tech electronics and machinery companies using CoCreate's 3D product development platform.

As an integrated and fully associative extension of CoCreate OneSpace Modeling, CFdesign is an interactive 3D flow bench and thermal test rig providing engineers with the total product performance picture without the time and expense of building and testing physical prototypes. The ability to conduct extensive trade-off studies upfront in the process leads to substantial downstream benefits including increased quality and innovation while reducing time-to-market, Cost of Goods Sold (COGS), and warranty exposure.

Geometry changes made within OneSpace Modeling are automatically reflected in CFdesign without any translation or conversion process, eliminating the time-consuming and confusing process of creating and managing multiple geometry models during a project lifecycle. With CFdesign there is always only one product model, and it is updated and managed within the CoCreate environment.

"We hold the CoCreate team in high regard and we are very pleased to deliver the first upfront CFD solution for OneSpace Modeling customers," stated Blue Ridge president Ed Williams. "Those companies engaged in the development of high tech electronics and machinery will especially derive great value from our collaboration."

"Blue Ridge Numerics develops easy to understand and easy to implement simulation tools to support the design engineering phase of PLM," explained CoCreate CEO William M. Gascoigne. "We view CFdesign as synergistic with CoCreate's 3G PLM approach to enable companies to achieve a new level of success in adopting lean product development, and reaping its benefits."
