Flow Simulation

Save valuable time analyzing fluid flow, heat transfer, and fluid force.

If you need to understand fluid flow, heat transfer or understand fluid forces on your design, you need to work with SolidWorks Flow Simulation. The computational fluid dynamics tool enables you to easily simulate liquid and gas flow in real world conditions and measure their effects on immersed or surrounding components.

Flow with HVAC Module

Simulates fluid (either liquid or gas) passing through or around an object.

Thermal Comfort Parameters

Create a thermal environment that satisfies the maximum possible percentage of people taken as a group in a given environment.

Advanced Radiation Simulation

Analyze absorption of radiation in solid bodies and definition of the radiation spectrum for a more accurate radiation simulation.

Concurrent Engineering

Evaluated design is an evolutionary process that begins during the design phase. As changes are decided upon, analysis can be performed concurrently to decide which direction is best for the design.

Post Processing

Interpret digital testing results using post-processing tools and outputs. This includes visualization and animation of many output parameters including stress, displacement, vibration modes and Contacts behavior.

Design Comparison Studies

Enables you to evaluate multiple scenarios for your design—you specify discrete values for each variable and use sensors as constraints.

Fluid Flow Simulation

Simulates fluid (either liquid or gas) passing through or around an object.

Thermal Flow Simulation

Enables analysis of conjugate heat transfer (thermal conduction in solids, convection between fluid and solid, and radiation) using computational fluid dynamics (CFD).

Rotating Regions

Enables designers and engineers to quickly and efficiently analyze Fluid Flow impact while they create their design.

Flow with HVAC Module

The HVAC module offers industry-specific tools and methodologies offering unrivaled user-friendliness, control and efficiency. The HVAC module allows designers to monitor and optimize the regulation of airflow and temperature in work and living environments.

Thermal Comfort Parameters
