Simcenter FLOEFD Products

The fastest CFD solution from MCAD model to manufactured product

Simcenter FLOEFD is a full-featured 3D computational fluid dynamics analysis solution built into major MCAD systems such as Creo, CATIA V5, Siemens NX, Solid Edge and SolidWorks. It tightly integrates with Inventor.


As an award-winning frontloading CFD solution, Simcenter FLOEFD enables users to move CFD simulation early into the design process where it can help engineers examine trends and dismiss less desirable design options. Fast to learn and easy to use, Simcenter FLOEFD eliminates the workflow complexity and meshing overheads of old-school CFD software.

Upfront and concurent CFD

Simcenter FLOEFD is the only fully CAD-embedded CFD software on the market


Simcenter FLOEFD helps design engineers conduct up-front, concurrent CFD analysis using the familiar MCAD interface. This reduces design times by orders of magnitude when compared to traditional methods and products.


Concurrent CFD can reduce simulation time by as much as 65 to 75 percent over traditional CFD tools. It allows optimization of product performance and reliability while also reducing physical prototyping and development costs, without time or material penalties.
