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
Product Engineers can import thermal properties from CircuitWorks™ ECAD files to SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation, including dielectric and conductor density, specific heat, conductivity for PCBs, and volumetric heat sources from components. This capability facilitates setting up the CFD analysis for cooling simulation of electronic components to define PCBs and heat sources.
