Simcenter FLOEFD for CATIA V5

Simcenter FLOEFD for CATIA V5 is the only computational fluid dynamics (CFD) analysis tool that is truly embedded into CATIA V5. It enables design engineers to frontload CFD by moving simulation early into the design process where it is more cost effective to identify and fix problems and enhance productivity by x2 to x40. It is also the only CFD software delivering local user interfaces in Japanese, Chinese, Korean, French, German and Russian.

Experience streamlined workflows, faster results, and increased productivity with FLOEFD. 

CATIA V5-embedded CFD Simulation

CAD-embedded simulation enables engineers to conduct analysis in the same user environment as design. Therefore, engineers can use the latest CATIA V5 geometry for analysis to conduct multiple design studies and evaluate how the modifications influence the performance of the design without the hassle of data translation.

Parametric Study and Design Comparison Functionality

The compare configuration and parametric study capability inside Simcenter FLOEFD enables engineers to understand the influence of changes in the geometry or boundary conditions on the results. Users can evaluate the design envelope by assessing results by numerical values, by graphs and by visual images and animations and thereby compare a wide range of project permutations.

Fast and Automated Meshing Technology with SmartCells™

Simcenter FLOEFD uses meshing technology which is recognized as the most efficient framework for simulating fluid flows, heat and mass transfer. In addition, the meshing process can be automated easily for even the most complex CAD geometries with the aid of SmartCells technology.

SmartCells are unique technology that combine robust Cartesian meshing with highly efficient analytical or semi-empirical solver models; thus providing high levels of simulation accuracy with fewer number of mesh cells than in traditional CFD. SmartCells typically reduce the manual time spent by traditional CFD tool users in meshing even complex geometries by an order of magnitude on average thus dramatically reducing a historical bottleneck to CFD user productivity.

Instinctive User Experience

Simcenter FLOEFD for CATIA V5 features an easy-to-use GUI with considerable intelligent automation built-in as standard:

  • Operate within CATIA V5 graphical user environment
  • Powerful analysis wizard guides users through the problem set-up
  • Interface uses engineering terms instead of technical jargon therefore users can focus on solving flow problems as opposed to figuring out how to use the software
  • Real-time feedback about the solution progress such as convergence and monitor point values
  • Engineering outputs appear in both a timely and intuitive manner including reports in Microsoft® Excel and Word
