“Because SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation allowed me to refine the aerobar profile aerodynamics before we visited the wind tunnel, we validated the design’s performance in a single round of testing… It would have taken at least four trips to the wind tunnel... From that standpoint, our savings on the first project paid for the software.”

Engineering Challenges Tackled with SOLIDWORKS Simulation Solutions 

SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation Solutions enable product engineers to perform a complete performance test in a single user interface with the smoothest and most efficient engineering workflow. SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation's intuitive Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) enables designers to simulate liquid and gas flow in real-world conditions, run "what if" scenarios, and efficiently analyze the effects of fluid flow, heat transfer, and related forces on immersed or surrounding components. Early in the design process, designers can easily simulate fluid flow, heat transfer, and fluid forces that are critical to the success of the design. 

For products subjected to fluid flow and heat transfer, you can simulate the fluid flow around your product for velocity, pressure, and thermal insights with CFD simulation, use the thermal results in a thermal stress simulation to assess dilation risk, and measure the response of your product to random vibration in structural dynamic analysis. All this in one environment enables a unique and productive workflow. 

With powerful and intuitive SOLIDWORKS Simulation solutions, product engineers can virtually test new ideas, quickly and efficiently evaluate performance, improve quality, and get knowledge for product innovation. Help product engineers reduce the risk inherent with innovation and get their products to market faster with less physical prototyping to decrease costs. With the consistent, powerful, intuitive set of simulation capabilities, all fully embedded with SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD, designers can understand product performance early in the design process and avoid costly over-engineering.
