SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation

Study critical analysis like fluid flow, heat transfer, and fluid forces for the success of your designs


Simulate Fluid Flows with Confidence
SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation is a CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) solution that helps you quickly and easily simulate liquid and gas flows through and around your product designs, so you may accurately calculate product performance and capabilities.At CADVision Systems, our team is here to help take the complexity out of CFD so that you can quickly go from concept to product, with innovative designing and in-depth analysis happening at the same time.


CFD Software integrated in SOLIDWORKS

Bridging the gap between fluid flow analysis and design innovation to enable better engineering decisions earlier and avoid reworks.

SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation

SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation provides you powerful fluid flow analysis with a general parametric flow simulation that uses the Finite Volume Method (FVM) to predict product performance.

  • Enables your team to simulate liquid and gas flow through and around your designs.
  • These 'what if' studies allows you to perform validation and optimization using the results.
  • A complete fluid flow and heat transfer tool that simplifies visualization, identification, and communication of complex thermal management challenges.

HVAC Module

An Add-on module dedicated to heating, cooling, and ventilation tools for simulating HVAC systems and radiation phenomena.

  • Optional module that builds upon SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation.
  • Consists of an enriched HVAC engineering database library and thermal comfort parameters.
  • Evaluate air and gas flow in human working and living environments.

Electronics Cooling Module

An Add-on module dedicated to thermal management study simulation tools for accurate thermal analysis of electronic Printed Circuit Board (PCB) and enclosure designs.

  • Optional module that builds upon SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation.
  • Study Joule heating and heat pipe with extended database library and PCB generators.
  • Providing designers and engineers a great toolset to handle tough challenges of electronic packaging.
