2.4 Coupled thermal/fluid analysis training with Simcenter FLOEFD

This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.


Simcenter FLOEFD can be used to solve fluid mechanics tasks, complex thermal problems and coupled thermal/fluid tasks.

This enables one solver each for thermal and fluid mechanical calculations, which can be coupled with each other if required. In this seminar, we will cover the methodology for coupling the fluid mechanical and thermal solvers.
