Ofrece herramientas sofisticadas de análisis de fluidos y transferencia de calor de piezas y ensamblajes complejos. NX Flow permite realizar de forma rápida y exacta simulaciones de análisis de fluidos para conocer el comportamiento del producto en la fase de diseño y desarrollo de producto solution para reducir costes y acelerar el lanzamiento del producto al mercado al reducir el número de prototipos y ensayos físicos. NX Flow se aplica en un amplio rango de industrias, incluyendo: espacio y defensa, automoción, productos de consumo, componentes electrónicos de alta tecnología, medicina, procesos y generación de potencia.

Aplicaciones de NX Flow

 NX Flow solves practical engineering challenges such as:

  • Computing:
    • Fluid pressure and velocity fields within and around complex geometries (both internal and external fluid flow simulations).
  • Investigating:
    • Start-up, shut-down or system failure transient performance degradation conditions.
    • Forced and natural convection cooling schemes.
    • Spacing requirements between parts.
  • Optimizing:
    • Placement of critical components.
    • Size and shape of heat sinks.
    • Position and sizing of fans, inlets, vents, and outlets.
  • Determinining:
    • Size of wing profiles or critical car component shapes.
    • Drag, lift, or other forces and pressures acting on complex surfaces.
    • Head loss across a system or subsytem.
    • Operating point of a cooling fan.
  • Designing:
    • Air and thermal comfort systems (HVAC cabin design).
    • The best fluid pipe pattern throughout a complex hydraulic system assembly.

 In essence, NX Flow allows engineers to solve very complex systems numerically. It describes and predicts the flow of air, gases, or other fluids and liquids around or through any engineering product assembly. Analyzing the flow patterns and pressure regulation of fluid within an automative transmission cooling system or the flow of air within an HVAC system for cabin thermal comfort are two typical examples of NX Flow applications.

NX Flow can be used in tandem with the NX Thermal product for seamless modeling of explicitly coupled forced and natural convection problems, including radiation heat transfer.
