FloEFD for NX: An Easy-to-Use CFD Tool

You know about FloEFD for Solid Edge. Fully integrated. Easy-to-use. Powerful.

But this accurate Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) analysis tool is also fully integrated in NX. Just as in Solid Edge, FloEFD for NX enables engineers to frontload simulation by moving CFD simulation early into the design process. This allows the design engineers to examine and evaluate design options earlier to obtain optimized product performance and reliability.

FloEFD features intelligent automation at its core to make frontloading CFD a reality:

  • An intuitive user experience—short learning curve
  • Use of native Siemens NX CAD data—no translation or fluid body creation
  • Fast automated meshes—fast and easy SmartCell meshing
  • Unique solver—getting accurate results fast for highly complex geometry
  • Powerful parametric study and design comparison functionality for easier what-if analysis
  • Automatic recognition of model changes—geometry and simulation data are synchronized

FloEFD for NX can be easily inserted into your current design flow without any disruption to your existing process and reduce your overall simulation time by as much as 75%.

Below are some examples of FloEFD working inside the NX application:
