The answer to this question will be widely varied depending on who provides it. Carrier uses Fluent (ANSYS) for CFD projects here in Charlotte. The process is; first the CREO models are translated to a STEP file, then meshed with Hypermesh, then loaded into Fluent.
We had 6 or 7 energetic teams focused on solving this challenge. Two (Newell-Rubbermaid and Team Britax) tied for the win by solving the shape control portion of the contest. See PowerPoint for the challenge definition and the two model files attached here.
