SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation 2017

The newest release of SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation 2017 delivers new user-requested enhancements that make it even easier and faster to determine the impact of a liquid or gas flow on your product designs during the design phase. Here are few of the new enhancements that you will find in SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation 2017.

Import Condition Model

Ability to import from the model conditions defined for other projects (such as material properties, heat power, etc.). This can dramatically simplify project definition by creating a library of models with conditions pre-defined.

Transient Post-Processing

Instantly switch between transient time moments. A new transient post-processing mode allows you to explore transient results without waiting for a time moment to load. You move a slider and results are updated immediately.

Multi-Parameter Optimization

Multi-parameter optimization is added to the Parametric Study. You can now conduct an optimization study for more than one input variable. You can select geometry or simulation parameters as variables. For each variable, you define the range of variation and the target optimization goal, such as maximize, minimize, or match a Value.

HVAC Module

Product Engineers can efficiently evaluate gas movement and temperature in working and living environments, as well as lighting applications, concurrent with design using the HVAC applications module.

Electronic Cooling Module

Product Engineers can optimize the cooling strategy for electronic components concurrent to the design process using the Electronic Cooling Module.
