“What if?” It’s the inspiration that fuels innovation. With SOLIDWORKS® Flow Simulation software, you remove the risk and replace it with a 3D workspace to virtually test your new ideas, develop new designs, and help accelerate your products to market.
SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation gives product engineers access to powerful CFD (computational fluid dynamics) analysis capabilities that help enable them to speed up product innovation. Leveraging the familiar SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD environment, this extensive technology isn’t just about making sure your product works, it’s about understanding how your product will behave in the real world.
Backed by the unrivalled support of Australia and New Zealand’s largest team of Certified SOLIDWORKS engineers, SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation includes:
> Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD): quick, efficient simulation of fluid flow and heat transfer
> Thermal comfort factors: Understand and evaluate thermal comfort levels for multiple environments using thermal comfort factor analysis
> Simulation visualisation: increase your ability to make informed design decisions while you ensure product performance and safety
> Fluid flow analysis: determine the impact of a liquid or gas on product performance during the design phase
> Electronics thermal management: quickly perform complete component thermal analysis on designs incorporating printed circuit boards (PCBs) and electronics
> Thermal fluid analysis: determine the impact of fluids flowing in and around the design to ensure correct thermal performance, product quality, and safety
Add-on modules for SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation::
> HVAC Module: offers additional simulation capabilities for advanced radiation and thermal comforts analysis
> Electronic Cooling Module: offers electronic virtual models and an extensive materials library for cooling simulation
Raise the quality of your products and reduce costs for live prototypes, with SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation.
