SOLIDWORKS

Flow Simulation

A CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) solution geared to guide you on the fluid flow and thermal performance of your products throughout your design process.

The Advantages

  • Flow Simulation is 100% integrated into SOLIDWORKS, so there’s no necessary translation and no accompanying loss of geometrical fidelity. Design and CFD models stay in sync, reducing re-synchronization effort and the potential for errors. 
  • Flow Simulation includes Automated Boundary Meshing, which means no manual meshing time, and no required CFD expertise. Benefit from drastically reduced execution times without sacrificing accuracy. 
  • Built-in Solution Convergence reduces the number of re-runs needed due to lack of convergence and eliminates CFD specialist tweaks that would’ve been needed to attain it. Short run times enable the staging of multiple variant scenarios. 
  • The exclusive Turbulence Model automatically determines laminar, transitional, and turbulent flow regimes without the need for you to specify flow characteristics, and directly modeling flow regimes eliminates the need for a CFD specialist. The Turbulence Model offers shorter setup times and increased model accuracy compared to traditional approaches. 
  • The Wall Function for Boundary Layers provides accurate simulations, including near-wall boundary condition effects. This function reduces the trial and error associated with near-wall setup when utilizing traditional CFD approaches. 
  • Its intuitive interface reduces setup times and delivers comprehensive results analysis and best-in-class visualization capabilities.
