SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation
Complex computational fluid dynamics doesn’t have to be difficult. SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation shows you how heat transfer, fluid flow and fluid forces can impact your product design. Your product is put to the test against real life liquid and gas flow conditions. Evaluate multiple design considerations virtually run ‘what if’ scenarios and even compare design variations to ensure your developing the best product possible. Additional add-ins for specialized analyses, such as HVAC and electronic cooling, are available.
With SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation, you’ll be able to:
- Analyze computational fluid dynamics (CFD)
- Evaluate thermal comfort levels
- Visualize the stress and displacement of your assembly
- Simulate fluid (either liquid or gas) passing through or around an object
- Optimize the thermal performance of electronic components
- Investigate the impact of cooling and design changes on component temperatures
