SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation
The newest release of SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation delivers new user-requested enhancements that make it even easier and faster to determine the impact of a liquid or gas flow on your product designs during the design phase.
Conditions from low-level component: Import condition in model
Ability to import from the model conditions defined for other projects (such as material properties, heat power, etc.). This can dramatically simplify project definition by creating a library of models with conditions pre-defined.
Instant switching between transient time moments
A new transient post-processing mode allows you to explore transient results without waiting for a time moment to load. You move a slider and results are updated immediately.
Multi-parameter optimization is added to the Parametric Study. You can now conduct an optimization study for more than one input variable. You can select geometry or simulation parameters as variables. For each variable, you define the range of variation and the target optimization goal, such as maximize, minimize, or match a Value.
SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation solutions include:
Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD)
SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation uses Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) analysis to enable quick, efficient simulation of fluid flow and heat transfer. You can easily calculate fluid forces and understand the impact of a liquid or gas on product performance.
Thermal Comfort Factors
Understand and evaluate thermal comfort levels for multiple environments using thermal comfort factor analysis with SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation and the HVAC Application Module.
Evaluate and compare design alternatives with the visualization and reporting capabilities of SOLIDWORKS Simulation. 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 using CAD-embedded SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation. Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) studies provide meaningful insight into the impact of fluid flow, so you can address problems early, reduce the need for costly prototypes, and eliminate rework.
Electronics Thermal Management
Quickly perform complete component thermal analysis on designs incorporating printed circuit boards (PCBs) and electronics with easy-to-use SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation and the Electronic Cooling Module.
Thermal Fluid Analysis
Easily investigate the impact of cooling and design changes on component temperatures using thermal fluid analysis in SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation. You can quickly determine the impact of fluids flowing in and around the design to ensure correct thermal performance, product quality, and safety.
