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

[The Instructor] is a great guy and great instructor! I had a great time and most of all learned all of the essentials of SOLIDWORKS.

Ken Stoner

This course made learning SOLIDWORKS about 10 times easier and faster than if I had done it on my own.

Jason Peck

It is difficult to stay engaged in a 5-day training, but [The Instructor] made it easy to stay involved. He is clearly very knowledgeable in the practical uses of SOLIDWORKS and appears to enjoy teaching. The pace of the class allowed enough time to let things sink in. ... Overall, a great course! I learned a great deal ... and hope to continue building my knowledge base in SOLIDWORKS.
