Simulation Software - SolidWorks Flow Simulation

Supplier: Solidtec Solutions

Easily simulate liquid and gas flow within SolidWorks.


SolidWorks® Flow Simulation software is a powerful computational fluid dynamics (CFD) tool that enables you to quickly and easily simulate fluid flow, heat transfer, and fluid forces that are critical to the success of your design.

Access a broad range of physical models and capabilities:

  • Examine flow through your components, over your components, or both via a combination of internal and external flows
  • Couple flow with thermal analysis, simulating convection, conduction, and radiation effects
  • Let SolidWorks Flow Simulation find the best dimensions or inlet and outlet conditions that satisfy your design goals, such as force, pressure drop, or velocity
  • Include sophisticated effects like porosity, cavitation, and humidity
  • Solve flow problems involving non-Newtonian fluids, such as blood and plastic
  • Simulate the rotation of impellers and fans using rotating coordinate frames

Leverage an unlimited combination of real-world operating conditions:

  • Apply inlet velocities, pressures, mass or volume flow rates, and fans
  • Simulate temperature changes by applying a surface or volume heat source, and accounting for solar radiation
  • Track the behavior of particles suspended in a flow
  • Apply time- and coordinate-dependent boundary conditions and heat sources

Gain valuable insights with powerful and intuitive results visualisation tools:

  • Utilise section plots to study the distribution of results quantities, including velocity, pressure, vorticity, temperature, and mass fraction
  • Measure results at any location with the Point Parameter tool
  • Graph results variation along any SolidWorks sketch
  • List results and automatically export data to Microsoft® Excel
  • Examine the flow trajectory inside or around the model with animated bands, 3D arrows, pipes, or spheres

Solve large-scale problems quickly and efficiently with two vertical solutions:
Electronics Lab and HVAC

  • Electronics Lab evaluates components’ thermal properties and cooling requirements. Includes Joule heating simulation, two-resistor component compact module, heat pipe compact module, and PCB generator
  • HVAC Module evaluates air and gas movement in working and living environments. Includes advanced radiation modeling, comfort parameters, and a large database of building materials
