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.
