New Simcenter FLOEFD pushes fluid and thermal simulation speeds

2236 0

The latest Simcenter FLOEFD release has launched, with Siemens Digital Industries Software announcing some big upgrades to its overall simulation speeds.

The latest version of the CAD-embedded CFD software offers new modules and improvements that can improve accuracy and solve rates, with Siemens claiming reduced overall simulation time by ‘as much as 65-75 per cent’ and ‘user productivity enhancement’ of up to 40 times.

Simcenter FLOEFD is part of the Simcenter portfolio of simulation and test solutions that enables engineers to simulate fluid flow and thermal problems quickly within their preferred CAD environment.

“Featuring unique intelligent technology to enable fast and accurate simulation, Simcenter FLOEFD helps users frontload CFD simulation early into the design process to understand the behaviour of their concepts and eliminate the less attractive options,” said a Simcenter spokesperson.

A new Electronics Cooling Center module in Simcenter FLOEFD combines existing electronics-specific capabilities and integrates new ones from Simcenter Flotherm software inside the user-friendly CAD-embedded interface.

A second new module helps users create a compact Reduced Order Model (ROM) that solves at a faster rate, while still maintaining a high level of accuracy.

Its package creator helps users create thermal models of electronics packages easily and quickly.


The Power Electrification module can now simulate an electrical device as an electro-thermal compact model, which can save significant user and computational time.

This news comes off the back of the announcement of the latest release of Simcenter STAR-CCM+.

The latest release included enhancements to improve simulation time and accuracy as well as enhance collaboration, giving customers a comprehensive digital twin to help drive highly predictive simulations.
