Key Benefits

Optimize your Design for Fluid Flow and Heat Transfer

  • Visualize fluid flows internal to, or around your product.
  • Understand heat transfer through conduction, convection, and radiation to optimize heating or cooling of your design.
  • Verify pressure drops, temperatures, flow rates, velocities, and so much more.
  • Identify potential flow problems such as recirculation, cavitation, or improper mixing before creating a prototype.
simulation flow training


Internal Flow Analysis

Learn to set up a simulation of fluid flow internal to an assembly. Identify pressure drops, fluid velocities, and visualize flow patterns.

Thermal Analysis

Utilize fans to create convective effects on an internal fluid analysis. Learn how to optimize cooling inside electronics enclosures, among other applications.

Transient Analysis

Simulated heat transfer, or fluid flow as a function of time. Identify time dependent effects such as rate of temperature increase, or vortex shedding.

Porous Media Simulation

Utilize Porous Media simplification models to simulate numerous semi-permeable materials, defined based on porosity or pressure drop.

Rotating Reference Frames

Understand and implement rotating reference frames to simulate flow around fans or rotors.

Transfer Fluid Results to FEA

Learn how to transfer fluid flow fields (such as drag forces, or thermal loading) to a SOLIDWORKS Simulation study, and understand part deformations and deflections.
