Structural Research & Analysis Corp. (SRAC), developer of COSMOS/Works, the best selling design analysis program for SolidWorks users, today introduced COSMOS/FloWorks, a computational fluid dynamics software powered by NIKA's popular flow simulation technology.
The only fluid dynamics program that is fully embedded within the SolidWorks user environment, COSMOS/FloWorks provides design engineers with a fundamental analysis of the flow of gases and liquids, heat transfer, and other forces on immersed or surrounding solids. The same qualities that make SolidWorks the industry's leading mid-range CAD system for the design of engines, valves, hydraulics, piping, pumps, HVAC, and other complicated assemblies make COSMOS/FloWorks the perfect tool for analyzing them.
COSMOS/FloWorks ignores the traditional practice of handing off fluid analysis to specialists by translating problems into engineering analysis goals rather than numerical convergence criteria and solver parameters. Leaving the SolidWorks geometry as a solid model, COSMOS/FloWorks empowers engineers who are not analysis experts to succeed in today's design environment.
