    Industry focus

  • Architectural and MEP applications

    Improve occupant comfort, increase operating efficiency, and optimize building design. Access a wide range of CFD features to understand airflow and thermal behavior for architectural and mechanical, electrical and plumbing (MEP) applications. Model radiant heat transfer and solar effects on occupant comfort. 

  • Industrial flow control applications

    Design to reduce pressure drop or optimize flow distribution. Advanced capabilities include the ability to simulate fluid and solid interactions to help reduce valve chatter. Visualize flow fields and model complex cavitation, free surface, and erosion. The intuitive interface works directly with your Inventor or other 3D CAD models. Easily visualize key performance characteristics such as velocity profiles and pressure drop, and compare the results of different designs in a single interface.

  • Thermal management

    Use digital prototyping for your thermal management designs to create one physical prototype for validation. Thermal management solver capabilities in Autodesk CFD include all modes of heat transfer from solid to solid or solid to fluid. The finite element approach solves for the temperature at the surface, allowing easy and accurate mapping to Simulation Mechanical software or another vendor's FEA tool.

  • Simplified heat sinks

    Use heat sink materials to simulate the performance of your heat sink components with geometrically simple models. In models containing heat sinks with large aspect ratios (the ratio of fin height to fin spacing), meshing components requires many elements, and a full system analysis can be expensive and time-consuming. The heat sink material significantly reduces mesh counts and improves run times.
