Flow Simulation

Easily simulate fluid flow, heat transfer, and fluid forces that are critical to the success of your design with SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation. Fully embedded with SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD, SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation intuitive CFD (computational fluid dynamics) tool enables you to simulate liquid and gas flow in real world conditions, run “what if” scenarios, and efficiently analyze the effects of fluid flow, heat transfer, and related forces on immersed or surrounding components. You can compare design variations to make better decisions to create products with superior performance. Driven by engineering goals, SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation enables Product Engineers to use CFD insights for making their technical decision through a concurrent engineering approach. Additional HVAC and Electronic Cooling modules offer dedicated fluid flow simulation tools for detailed analysis.

  • Product Details

    With its CFD analysis capabilities, you can simulate liquid and gas flow in real world conditions, run “what if” scenarios, and quickly analyze the effects of fluid flow, heat transfer, and related forces on immersed or surrounding components. Fluids of interest for analysis range from air, water, liquid chemicals, and gases to juice, ice cream, honey, plastic melts, toothpaste, blood, and others. Featured SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation capabilities: Radiation heat transfer analysis: See how heat is transferred between high-temperature surfaces. You can also calculate solar radiation. Internal flow analysis: See liquids and gases through valves, regulators, and ducts. Rotating reference frame analysis: It's easy to understand complex rotational flows inside turbo machinery (i.e., pumps and impellers). Transient flow analysis: For simulating unsteady flow over time. Conduction and convection heat transfer analysis: See how heat flows through an object.

     

    • External flow analysis of liquids and gases around solid bodies (i.e., air flow over an airplane wing or water flow around a submarine).
    • Turbulent flow analysis using the K-E model to illustrate flow domain turbulence (i.e., gases from an aircraft engine nozzle).
    • Real gas simulation for accurately solving high-pressure or low-temperature gas applications.
    • Compressible flow analysis for gas flows in subsonic, transonic, and supersonic speed zones.
    • Calculation of pressure drop on pipes using surface roughness values.
    • Design optimization using CFD-based flow and dimensional parameters.
    • Flow analysis of non-Newtonian fluids (i.e., blood, toothpaste, and plastic melts).
    • Moving wall flow analysis for studying flows relative to a moving reference frame.
    • Cavitation analysis for identifying areas in a model where cavitation will occur.
    • Humidity analysis for calculating relative humidity inside enclosures for climate control applications.
