Designed for users who would like to become productive faster, this introductory course offers hands-on training on the use of SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation.

Prerequisites: Some experience using SOLIDWORKS.

Who should attend: The two-day training program provides an indepth session on the basics of fluid flow analysis, in addition to covering meshing concerns, modeling concerns, analysis, post-processing, available options and preferences.

Length: 3 days.

Time: 9:00 am to 5:00 pm.

Topics Covered:

  • Basics of Fluid Flow
  • Fluid Flow Definitions
  • Governing Equations
  • Meshing principles
  • Monitoring convergence


  • Meshing concerns
  • Modeling concerns
  • Applying boundary conditions
  • Post-processing (vectors, contours, iso-lines, particle tracking)
  • Global data (mass/energy balance, bulk values, et cetera)
  • Analysis Types
  • Steady State
  • Transient
  • Conjugate heat transfer
  • Open/closed systems

Flow Features
