What’s New in Solid Edge 2022: Simcenter Flomaster for Solid Edge

By Jayne Scheckla

Best-in-class thermo-fluid simulation for the mainstream market

Piping systems need to be designed to meet flow velocity, temperature and pressure drop performance requirements. Engineers need to understand their behavior under all conditions to ensure safety and maximize efficiency. However, many simulation products are too complex for engineers who just need to quickly verify their designs.

Based on a leading 1D computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulation tool for fluids engineering, Simcenter™ Flomaster™ for Solid Edge® software allows users to easily model and analyze the fluid and thermal flows in their piping systems. Being able to size and balance thermo-fluid pipe systems early in the design stage and to model different operating conditions can ensure maximum operating efficiency and safety.

Simcenter Flomaster for Solid Edge, included as part of our recent Solid Edge 2022 release, provides a streamlined workflow and improves productivity, without requiring expertise in simulation studies.

This product can help you reduce energy and resources consumption, reduce costs and increase profitability, and reduce risks and improve safety. It allows you to quickly compute and visualize requirements by automatically creating a simulation model from computer-aided design (CAD) 3D geometries. This automation can cut the time required to build a simulation model up to 90 percent.

This simulation product includes a fast and reliable static solver, advanced results visualization, and best-in-class flow balancing. Models can be reused for different simulations with only minimal changes. This allows you to study failure and emergency scenarios, immediately identify critical areas and ensure safety.
