Computational fluid dynamics simulation software, helping engineers improve product design and development.
Using PowerFLOW fluid dynamics simulation software, engineers can evaluate product performance early in the design process, minimizing the need for costly changes further down the line.
Use PowerFLOW to help solve challenges in aerodynamic efficiency, vehicle handling, panel deformation and more.
Solve design issues involving greenhouse wind noise, underbody wind noise, whistle and tonal noise, sunroof and window buffeting and more.
Quickly pinpoint thermal management issues such as cooling airflow, thermal protection, brake cooling, drive cycle simulation, and electronics and battery cooling.
Understand and solve challenges around cabin comfort, HVAC unit and distribution system performance, HVAC system and fan noise, defrosting and demisting.
Find and resolve powertrain challenges involving drivetrain cooling, exhaust systems, cooling jackets and engine blocks.
Identify issues caused by ‘A’ pillar overflow, dirt and dust accumulation and tire spray.
PowerFLOW’s ability to simulate true rotating geometry enables practical and accurate prediction of noise and performance of HVAC and cooling fans – something that’s simply not possible using standard rotating reference frame models.
It also improves accuracy for any application that has rotating components and is transient in nature.
PowerFLOW seamlessly couples with other SIMULIA applications to perform expanded applications.
PowerFLOW is designed from the ground up for operation in high-performance computing environments. It provides the fastest possible simulation times – delivering near-linear scalability up to hundreds of processor cores.
One model, many simulations
Once a surface mesh model is prepared, our best practices detail how the same model may be used to perform additional simulations (such as thermal or aeroacoustic) using SIMULIA’s integrated suite of products.
