Pre/post environments 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 & 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 a CFD mesh to a disjoint and dissimilar NX Nastran structural mesh.
