Mentor Graphics has launched a general-purpose software solution that combines 1D and 3D computational fluid dynamics (CFD). This is an industry first says the company, providing a tight coupling of 1D and 3D software technologies engineered to work natively together with integrated source code.

The solution is based on 1D Flowmaster, recently acquired by Mentor Graphics, and 3D FloEFD Concurrent CFD.The Mentor Graphics 1D-3D product line will be available for shipping the second half of the year.
