Preparing for a Fluid Simulation

Print version Email story Tweet story
News CFD software is now easier to use, faster, and more effective. That is the conclusion of an article by Algor's Bob Williams on Preparing for a Fluid Simulation.
CFD analysis is much easier to complete thanks to the automatic modeling of fluids based on CAD designs. While structural models transferred easily from CAD into FEA, flow analysts previously had to model the fluid part of the system in FEA. Now, the software models the fluid based on the geometry of the structure.

The full article appears in Machine Design.
