Perform fluid flow and heat transfer simulation to improve quality and avoid manufacturing issues
Computational Fluid Dynamics or CFD is a technique that deals with the solution of fluid flow fields through numerical analysis. SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation is a CFD software designed for the everyday SOLIDWORKS user and analyst. It provides dynamic feedback on the fluid flow and thermal performance of their products. With parametric optimization capabilities, users can automate the design and analysis process to discover the best iteration of their design within the familiar SOLIDWORKS CAD environment.
Flow Simulation enables users to simulate a wide variety of liquids and gases for different engineering scenarios. A few common applications are flow through manifolds, heat exchangers, electronics cooling and aerodynamics.
The volume of fluid method (VOF) used to simulate flows with a freely moving interface between two immiscible fluids is enhanced in SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation 2021 enabling you to include rotating regions and solve mixing simulations more accurately. For post processing activities, discover multiple improvements with plots that will reduce plot creation and modification time so you can publish and share meaningful results faster.
