Powerful, easy-to-use, cloud-connected CFD for designers & analysts

Cloud Enabled Validation

3DEXPERIENCE FLUIDS provides users with the ability to validate fluid and thermal performance for internal/external flows and conjugate heat transfer problems. A focus on turbulence models and boundary layer representation improves accuracy for those optimizing flow distribution and thermal management, predicting lift and drag, and more. With a CAD-enabled CFD approach, explore and compare design changes with only a few clicks.

As a 3DEXPERIENCE solution, all team members work with a single cloud data source and on-demand cloud computing resources, meaning CAD and CAE teams can work closer together and faster than ever.

“We chose a 3D EXPERIENCE Works Simulation solution because it’s cloud-based, which supports our remotely located engineering organization, works seamlessly with SOLIDWORKS design data, and incorporates the Abaqus Explicit solver, which is best suited for the types of simulation studies that we need to conduct on our parts, which can involve hyperelasticity, creep, fatigue, and contact.”

– Thomas Morgan
Design Engineer
