New FloWorks Modules Available

News NIKA has announced two new modules for its FloWorks product. The FloWorks software works within the SolidWorks design software allowing for greater integration of CFD in the design phase.

The new FloWorks Basic module provides fundamental fluid flow analysis capabilities such as internal and external flow, incompressible and compressible flow, laminar and turbulent flow as well as steady state flow and heat transfer analysis. The module is priced at $3,995 per seat in North America.

The new FlowWorks PE module expands on the basic module with more control of the mesh and solver settings in order to further optimize analysis effort and computation time. The PE module also includes their novel EFD zooming feature.

EFD zooming allows the engineer to use the analysis results of a complex model as boundary conditions for a local region within the same model. The system will then perform more detailed analysis on the local region (smaller mesh size and tighter convergence criteria). This feature thereby allows the engineer to use a coarse mesh for the entire model and a much finer mesh in the regions of interest.
