Class #: CAE410

The goal of this course is to teach you how to set up, run and view results of a fluid flow and/or heat transfer analysis using SOLIDWORKS and the Standard version of SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation mechanical design automation software.

It is impractical to cover every type of computational fluid dynamics (CFD) problem in SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation and still have the course be a reasonable length. Therefore, the focus of this course is on the fundamental skills and concepts central to successfully performing a CFD analysis. You should view the training course manual as a supplement to, not a replacement for, the system documentation and on-line help. Once you have developed a good foundation in basic skills, you can refer to the on-line help for information on less frequently used command options.

Training Testimonials

Great class. It gave you enough knowledge to explore more options.

Raj Sharma

I have never used a program like this in my life and learning something like this is very difficult for me. CATI has been very friendly with helping me. Thank you to everyone. You have changed my life. I still call with questions, but with everything this program can do I'm sure I will have more.

Jim Enz

[The Trainer's] knowledge of SOLIDWORKS and background in industrial design gave him credibility as an instructor. He confidently answered all questions that were raised.
