|Fluid flow simulations (CFD: Computational Fluid Dynamics) are based on algorithms enabling the behaviour of a flow, of air, water or any other fluid, to be analysed.
Fluid simulation enables:
- Load/pressure losses in pipes to be analysed.
- Velocity fields to be viewed and pressure fields in the flow to be observed.
Improving the production cycle for a part is directly linked to the cooling time for the latter in the injection mold. Hence the possibility of combining thermal & fluid effects within the same simulation. This process is commonly known as conformal cooling.
This type of simulation is particularly suited to studying the heating of electronic components where cooling and insulation are required: heat sink, furnace, etc.
