SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation gives product engineers access to powerful CFD (computational fluid dynamics) analysis capabilities that help enable them to speed up product innovation and enables true concurrent CFD, without the need for advanced CFD expertise.
SOLIDWORKS FLOW SIMULATION INCLUDES:
Ensuring the correct volume of cooling flow to all components is a key engineering challenge. Users can optimize the airflow through moving components/creating air baffles and ducts.
PRODUCT THERMAL DESIGN
Users will have accurate results of overall thermal behavior to ensure correct product performance, including heat-up/cool-down cycles and maximum temperature under load.
ENHANCED ENGINEERING DATABASE
A comprehensive engineering data base including a wide range of new solids, fans, thermoelectric coolers, and two-resistor components is included to take the guesswork out of choosing the most optimal design materials.
Optimize your design for real world conditions and reduce painful design reiterations by accurately examining internal and external flow through your products
HEAT TRANSFER ANALYSIS
Visualize and understand temperature distribution in and around your products with time and coordinate-dependent boundary conditions and heat sources
ANALYZE FLUID RESULTS
Compare the Fluid Flow results for various configurations with the Compare Mode and measure results at any location with the point, surface, and volume parameter tool
