Are you considering adding CFD analysis to your SOLIDWORKS design process?

Article by Rod Mackay updated July 4, 2018


CFD (computational fluid dynamics) analysis allows designers to understand the effect of moving liquids and gasses on their designs. The CFD analysis SOLIDWORKS add-in is called SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation, and is a general purpose flow analysis tool with a comprehensive range of capabilities. SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation can quickly and easily simulate fluid flow, heat transfer, and fluid forces that are critical to the success of a design.

Now is a good time to consider adding CFD analysis to your SOLIDWORKS package because, for a limited time, the SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation Training eCourse is available for free to SOLIDWORKS Subscription customers. Reviewing the training course will give you a better understanding of what SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation is capable of, allowing you to make a more informed design on a purchase of a CFD analysis SOLIDWORKS add-in product.
