SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation (CFD)

OVERVIEW

SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation software is a powerful tool that takes the complexity out of computational fluid dynamics (CFD) for designers and engineers.

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

What’s New in SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation

The newest release of SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation delivers new user-requested enhancements that make it even easier and faster to determine the impact of a liquid or gas flow on your product designs during the design phase. Here are few of the new enhancements that you will find in SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation 2017.

Conditions from low-level component: Import condition in model

Ability to import from the model conditions defined for other projects (such as material properties, heat power, etc.). This can dramatically simplify project definition by creating a library of models with conditions pre-defined.

Instant switching between transient time moments

A new transient post-processing mode allows you to explore transient results without waiting for a time moment to load. You move a slider and results are updated immediately.

Multi-parameter optimization

Multi-parameter optimization is added to the Parametric Study. You can now conduct an optimization study for more than one input variable. You can select geometry or simulation parameters as variables. For each variable, you define the range of variation and the target optimization goal, such as maximize, minimize, or match a Value.
