    Plant designers face a wide variety of tough-to-solve ventilation and flow control challenges. How can contaminant releases be controlled more effectively? How can you improve energy efficiency? Can you improve flow uniformity through a filter to improve uptime and reduce costs? Designers routinely face these and countless other challenges but until today have had limited ability to examine them in detail. Plant Design Suite subscribers now have access to Autodesk Simulation CFD 360 cloud-based software, which enables designers and engineers to model flow, thermal phenomena, and fluid mixing in complex plant environments. This class will introduce attendees to what Simulation CFD 360 offers and how they can make best use of it for their design work using geometry that was created in AutoCAD® or Autodesk® Revit® software.

    Key Learnings

    • Use the power of the cloud for simultaneously simulating flow and thermal in multiple design alternatives or conditions
    • Access software and training resources for Simulation 360
    • Describe historical challenges in simulation of plant equipment and how they are being addressed
    • Map out basic workflow for using a CAD model from AutoCAD, Autodesk® Inventor®, or Revit model for CFD analysis
