News Machine Design has posted an article introducing CFD to engineers familiar with structural analysis but not fluid dynamics analysis. The article argues that CFD is becoming more important because "even bench-level engineers can apply Cosmos-FloWorks [CFD software] to frequently encountered engineering problems".

The article further states that "after examining the software, engineers will find the CFD is easy to use thanks to a close link with CAD software and a wizard that speeds model setup".

Finally, the article discusses the concept of goal based simulations which "let users assign a sort of digital sensor to a component or surface of interest".
