Simulate the fluid flow, heat transfer, and fluid forces that are critical to the success of your designs.

SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation 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 or through components. Design variations can quickly be compared to make better decisions, resulting in products with superior performance.

Why Choose SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation?

SOLIDWORKS® Flow Simulation is an intuitive Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) solution embedded within SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD that enables you to quickly and easily simulate liquid and gas flows through and around your designs to calculate product performance and capabilities.

Key Benefits:

Evaluates product performance while changing multiple variables at a rapid pace.

Reduces time-to-market by quickly determining optimal design solutions and reducing physical prototypes.

Enables better cost control through reduced rework and higher quality.

Delivers more accurate proposals.
