Flow Simulation

Our Flow Simulation product takes away the excessive complexity and high cost historically required for computational fluid dynamics (CFD) analysis, allowing you to quickly and easily simulate fluid flow, heat transfer, and fluid forces that are critical to the performance of products you design.

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. Design variations can be compared to make better decisions and result in products with superior performance.

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.


Simulation Visualization

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

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.


Thermal Fluid Analysis

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