Siemens PLM Software CFD FAQ

  • Pre/post CFD module questions

    Which software module of the Siemens PLM Software offering contains CFD solver capabilities?

    Three Siemens PLM Software for pre/post digital simulation environments offer CFD analysis capabilities as one of their modules (NX, NX I-deas, and Femap)

    1] NX is the Siemens PLM Software leading product for enterprise-level computer-aided design (CAD), manufacturing (CAM) and engineering (CAE/CFD).

    NX modules (including CFD solver) for general purpose fluid flow simulations:

    • NX Flow
    • NX Advanced Flow (add-on module to NX Flow)
    • NX Electronic Systems Cooling (for High Tech and Electronics applications)

    2] NX I-deas has been considered one of the leading software solutions for digital simulation for nearly 20 years. It is a mature software.

    NX I-deas module for general purpose CFD and electronics cooling applications: NX I-deas ESC

    3] Femap is the world's leading windows-based engineering simulation tool for finite element analysis (FEA). It brings a complete range of powerful digital simulation solutions directly to the engineer's desktop easily and affordably.

    Femap modules for general purpose CFD and coupled heat transfer simulations:

    • Femap Flow
    • Femap Thermal
    • Femap Advanced Thermal

  • NX Flow solver/modeling questions

  • NX Advanced Flow solver/modeling questions

  • NX Electronic Systems Cooling solver/modeling questions

  • NX I-deas ESC solver/modeling questions

  • Femap Flow solver/modeling questions

  • NX Flow & NX Nastran Fluid-Structure Interaction

    Within NX, can I run fluid-structure interaction between NX Flow and NX Nastran?

    Yes, NX Flow pressures (both shear force and normal pressure) and/or temperatures can be automatically transfered from your NX Flow CFD mesh to a disjoint and dissimilar NX Nastran structural mesh.
