Flow Simulation

If you were taught to only rely on analysis “specialists” or physical prototypes on flow benches to verify designs, it’s time to learn more about testing with today’s Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) tools.

Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) analysis is no longer a discipline reserved only for highly trained practitioners. A new class of CFD analysis software known as “Concurrent CFD” is proving to be greatly effective at performing pressure drop analysis, enabling mechanical engineers to accelerate key decisions at their workstations, without the need for CFD specialists. Embedded into the 3D CAD environment, this intuitive process allows designers to:

  • Optimize a product during the design stages.
  • Reduce manufacturing costs across a wide range of mechanical designs and systems.
