Designed to help you become productive faster, this introductory course offers hands-on training on the use of SolidWorks Flow Simulation. The two-day training program provides an indepth session on the basics of turbulent fluid flow analysis, in addition to covering meshing concerns, modeling concerns, analysis, post-processing, available options and preferences.

Course details and prerequisites:

Duration: 2 Days
Type: Instructor Led
Level: Basic to Intermediate


  • Attended the SolidWorks Essentials course
  • Basic mechanical engineering concepts is recommended
After the training you will be able to:
  • Use SolidWorks Flow Simulation to run fluid or air flow analysis on your designs such as the wing of an airplane, or an exhaust valve
  • Perform PCB analysis to evaluate the effectiveness of cooling systems and understand the impact of fluid flow on temperature in electrical systems
