SolidWorks Flow Simulation

SolidWorks® Flow Simulation is the first and easiest fluid-flow simulation and thermal analysis program fully embedded within SolidWorks software.

SolidWorks Flow Simulation eliminates the need to modify your design for a different computational fluid dynamics (CFD) application saving considerable time and cost.

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.)

SolidWorks Flow Simulation capabilities:

Radiation heat transfer analysis of heat transfer between high-temperature surfaces. Also calculates solar radiation.

Internal flow analysis of liquids and gases through valves, regulators, and ducts.
Rotating reference frame analysis for understanding 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.
