Capabilities

HVAC Analysis

Easily analyze and optimize HVAC (heating, ventilating, and air conditioning) systems with CAD-embedded SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation, augmented with the HVAC Applications Module. You can ensure thermal performance and design quality at the start – and avoid costly rework later on.

 

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.

 

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.
