SolidWorks Flow Simulation

SolidWorks Flow Simulation takes the complexity out of computational fluid dynamics. You can quickly and easily simulate fluid flow, heat transfer, and fluid forces that are critical to the success of your 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, resulting in products with superior performance. Specific modules simplify the specialized analysis of HVAC and electronic cooling.

  • SolidWorks Flow Simulation Capabilities
  • SolidWorks Flow Simulation Advantages

Inspect and optimize complex flows
Examine complex flows through and/or over your components via a combination of internal and external flows
Find the best dimensions or flow conditions, such as pressure drop, that satisfy design goals
Detect turbulences and recirculation issues with animated bands, 3D arrows, pipes, or spheres using flow trajectories visualization
Understand the flow of non-Newtonian fluids, such as blood and liquid plastic
Compare and assess the impact of impeller and fan motion, using rotating coordinate frames
Include sophisticated effects like porosity, cavitation, and humidity
Reduce the risk of overheating phenomena in your designs
Visualize and understand temperature distribution in and around your products
Couple flow with thermal analysis, simulating convection, conduction, and radiation effects
Apply time-and-coordinate-dependent boundary conditions and heat sources
Find the best dimensions that satisfy your design goals, such as heat exchange efficiency
Optimize the thermal performance of your PCBs and electronic components
The Electronic Cooling Module includes Joule heating simulation, a two-resistor component compact module, a heat pipe compact module, and a PCB generator to evaluate thermal properties and cooling requirements for electronic components.
Predict and optimize airflow and comfort parameters in working and living environments
The HVAC Design Module includes advanced radiation modeling, comfort parameters, and a large database of building materials to evaluate gas movement and temperature in working and living environments.
Gain valuable insights with powerful and intuitive results visualization tools
Utilize Section or Surface plots to study the distribution of resultant values, including velocity, pressure, vorticity, temperature, and mass fraction
Measure results at any location with the Point, Surface, and Volume Parameter tool
Graph results variation along any SolidWorks sketch
List results and automatically export data to Microsoft® Excel

SolidWorks Flow Simulation not only improves our productivity and efficiency, but also lets us tackle heat transfer challenges that we would not be able to resolve without it
