Frontloading CFD Flow Simulation – Introducing Solidworks CFD

The practice of Performing Engineering Simulation Early has now spread to Fresh areas including Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) Simulation – long the Exclusive Area of the specialist Engineers during the Design validation Stage.
Frontloading provides the Optimal environment for design Focused CFD Analysis. This is also similar to what in the past was Named “upfront” CFD, except that here we are talking about Seamlessly embedding CFD Modeling in CAD Handling Process, which Offers Many Advantages throughout a product’s manufacturing Workflow. This has many Benefits for CFD Simulation application in the Arena of Green Building Performance Simulation, such as Wind Engineering, and Cooling Tower CFD Analysis
 
In fact, industry studies corroborate that Product Development engineers are in fact Performing Computational fluid Analysis in Large Quantity:
Solidworks Packages such as Solidworks computational fluid dynamics software, which is an Integral part of Solidworks Professional Allows Development engineers Lacking a Computational fluid analysis background to perform Multiphysics CFD thermal Analysis simulation and Multiphase Flow Simulation Utilizing Frontloaded CFD Thermal Analysis Software.
The Outcome is that we got the Precise design right the Very first time, only had to make one Physical prototype and avoided Costly Engineering design changes that typically occur in the late stages of the Product Development Workflow.”

Don’t Just Model, Innovate!

How is this Actually possible with Solidworks CFD?

Frontloaded CFD CAE Software Equip CFD Consultants and Mechanical Engineers Alike key proven Simulation technologies that greatly reduce the Need for CAD model Geometry Clean- preparation and preprocessing, such as: • By being fully embedded in the Solidworks Software CAD Modeling Environment, the Solidworks CFD software Utilizes the Common native geometry Data for Numerical Computation.
Manually Exporting CAD data and Patching To Pre-processing for CFD Analysis Simulation or Finite Element FEA analysis is no longer needed. In addition, the Solidworks FEA Simulation software, namely Solidworks Stress Analysis Add-on simply Inserts in – it does not need you to Master an Unfamiliar Software Graphical User interface (GUI) nor does it Need an Experience with the Solidworks Software Frontend interface Each time the CFD Analysis software is Utilized.
Performing CFD analysis is simply another Software functionality offered Inside the Solidworks Premium CAD Software Suite. • In CFD Computational fluid-flow Dynamics Analysis and Thermal heat-transfer analysis, the CFD Consulting Objective is Focused on understanding what Flow happening in the negative space, ie. the empty Domain. With Conventional CFD Simulation, Extra Design geometry has to be created to represent that cavity Geometry.
Frontloaded CFD Software solutions Coupled with the Solidworks Generative Design Technology are intelligent enough to recognize that the empty space is the fluid domain to be Analyzed so that no Valuable time is Lost Generating geometry to Operate the CFD software. This Process is Now made Totally Irrelevant. 
 
 

Complete Integration of Solidworks CFD into Your CAD Modeling Workflow

Solidworks Thermal Simulation Solver is Fully Integrated into the most popular 3D CAD Modeling Software, such as Solidworks Design Software.
Despite its different User Software Graphical User interface (GUI) for each Respective CAD Modeling program, the Overall User experience of Solidworks Thermal Analysis is Largely the same. Product Engineers have reported being able to Effectively Utilize the Solidworks CFD Program with less than 8 hours of Formal Classroom training.
This is Drastically much less than Conventional CFD programs which can Needs as long as 12 months Actual Classroom training to Properly Utilize the CFD software productively. For the Solidworks price, the Advantage it offers is Regarded by many Engineering Firms to be a good deal.
 

Solid Edge Simulation Automatic Meshing Capabilities

Its automatic Meshing lets the Product designer mesh the model with minimal Manual Involvement. In addition, the Solidworks Thermal Flow Simulation software in Solidworks CAM Software Suite automatically Identifies the fluid region to be Studied.
Solidworks Electrical CFD Simulation also makes it Very Convenient to Concurrently analyze Several Variations of the Engineering design. The Engineering designer simply Virtually Changes the 3D model in CAD, and Solidworks CFD automatically attaches the previously set of Simulation Setup information including boundary conditions, Physical Constraints and material Physics properties to the Newer variant.
Upon remeshing is Completed, the CAD model can again be Simulated using Turbulent Flow Simulation. Speed is of the essence for Allowing the Design engineer to conduct CFD analysis in a timely fashion to keep up with the Very fast-moving world of Product Development.

Top Goals of CFD Analysis as an Engineering Development Tool

Market Study data such as this from Lifecycle Insights Emphasizes top objectives for Computational fluid simulation as an Engineering design Solution :
  1. Meet product Engineering Functional Specification requirements
(for Instance: lower Overall weight, Quicker speed, complex Performance Dynamics, etc.)
  1. Avoid Undesirable downstream development delays and Expenses (for example: reduce Costly Destructive testing and Physical prototyping, Avoid Unnecessary Engineering change orders, etc.)
  2. Satisfy Client contractual obligations or Governmental Regulations
  3. Minimize product Engineering lifecycle costs
  4. Drive Manufacturing costs lower. In short, Product engineers can help reduce the Number of prototype Variants Fabricated and Lower cost (through use of Superior materials and Built quality), efficiency, as well as Boost Business profit margins.
 

Successful implementation is Crucial

Frontloading CFD Simulation, such as Cooling Tower CFD has obvious Advantages but how to Deploy it?
Implementing any Modification base on Finding from CFD Simulation such as Wind Load Analysis requires a Careful Study of the four main Components of Engineering design and product development:
  1. The Finished product being Developed and designed
  2. The Design process being Utilized to Develop it
  3. The Product Mechanical Engineer
  4. The Final end-user of the Manufactured product
Each Engineering Input Parameter Under Analysis in the CFD Analysis, such as Centrifugal Pump Simulation is a potential source of Additional complexity and improvement.
However, the Workflow and the designer can be adjusted for Fast productivity Increase. The final product will be automatically improved as a direct Consequence.
 

Top seven tips to increase Product Development Efficiency Output by frontloading CFD simulation

Conventional CFD Software tools from CFD Software Companies are crammed Full with Complicated technology that requires advanced training and education, which is why Specialized CAE Consultants are Often Given the task. For example, most traditional CFD Fluid Dynamic Simulation Analysis Software used by CFD Services Companies, such as Ansys Fluent and Simcenter STAR-CCM+ support many types of meshing Core algorithms. The CFD Consultant has to Understand which one would be the most suitable for the Precise Design application. In addition, he or she will have to Manually work on the Meshing Till an Optimized mesh for the 3D CAD model and Usage has been Satisfied. In short, using traditional CFD Flow Analysis Software tools, such as Ansys Fluent Software and Siemens Star-CCM+ can be Very time-consuming and slower than is Desired during the Engineering design stage.
 
However, design-centric CFD Analysis solutions include Integrated Smart Development Operation automation.
They have been Simply Created to be Essentially another Compatible Software Functionality Within the 3D CAD Modeling system, Parallel With finite element method (FEM) Simulation such as Mechanical stress, to help frontload CFD Simulation Studies.

Disadvantages of Conventional CFD Software

 

1. Risk of 3D Approximation when Transferring CAD Data between Software 

The Conventional process Needs stepping Within and outside of the 3D CAD and Solidworks CNC Software Solution and Continuously returning to the CAD Modeling Software Program with inherent risks of Shape geometry approximations Entering into the CFD simulation results.
Because Engineering design is Highly iterative in Approach, this Operation needs to be Duplicated for Each & every single CAD geometry Modification. In comparison, CAD-embedded CFD Analysis is Totally Integrated within the CAD Modeling software.  This means that when performing the CFD Modeling Services, any and all CAD geometry changes Occurs inside the CAD Modeling Platform of the Solidworks Parametric Design Environment.
Many Conventional CFD software programs, such as Ansys Fluent CFD Software and Ansys CFX CFD Software consist of Several User Graphical User interfaces – one for preprocessing, one for solution Solving, and another for post-processing. Traditional CFD software Solutions also tend to have their own proprietary GUI User interfaces that are not Embedded with CAD Model.
Each time a 3D CAD Model Data needs to be Simulated using Ansys Fluent CFD Software, the CAD data has to be Manually prepared and exported out of CAD and Brought into the CFD Simulation tool where the model can be “healed” for use. 
 

2. Extremely Long Simulation Solving Time Required

The traditional CFD Flow Simulation Software required Significantly more time investment For the Initial preprocessing stage, Particularly for 3D CAD model Geometry preparation, which Consist time Needed for transferring the 3D model out from the CAD Modeling Software package and then Patching it.
It also Needs significantly more Engineering Hours for mesh generation. During the Solving phase, the traditional CFD Computational Fluid Analysis tool needed a Drastically longer Time to Compute the problem given the size of the mesh element.
Inefficient Operational Workflow of Conventional CFD Software However, not just any CFD Software tool can be frontloaded. The Popular CFD software Tools, such as Star-CCM+ Software that is Utilized during the Initial Design verification Phase is not a good candidate for frontloading in the Engineering design Workflow.
This can be seen by Observing the Conventional CFD Simulation Workflow in Ansys Fluid Flow where the CFD Source code receives geometry Information from a Separate – 3D CAD Modeling Software versus a CAD-Integrated one. All CFD analyses performed using Mainstream CFD Software, such as Simcenter STAR-CCM+ require the use of 3D CAD models, geometry Shape Conditioning including CAD clean-up and repair, Mesh Creation, solving, post-processing and Official reporting. But Every type of CAE Simulation software, from Siemens CFD Software to Ansys CFD Software Handles with this process somewhat differently.
 

3. Computationally Lean with Significantly Less demand for Hardware Resources

Logically, the solution Solving time for computationally intensive Numerical simulation such as Numerical Ship Hydrodynamics can be handled with Sheer force by throwing as Several CPU processors as Commercially possible at the Numerical Simulation Scenario to be Analyzed.
However, when comparing apples to apples (using the Identical hardware), Solidworks Simulation required Much less Processing time to Compute the same Engineering Modeling problem involving the Refinement of Ship Hydrodynamics Performance.
When Viewing at the entire Workflow of performing the Ship Hydrodynamics Design Optimization, Solidworks CFD Needs only 4 hours Compared to 40 hours to complete the same Engineering task, with the same Precision.
Needless to say, the Engineering design team is Currently using Solidworks FEA Software Coupled with Fluid Flow Solver to Model Wind Load Analysis in Designing a Complicated shape channel.

Expanding Roles of Today’s Product Development Designer

Today’s typical Product Development designer is Essentially a mechanical Design engineer.
During the course of their Formal Training most mechanical Design engineers have been Shown to the principles of CFD Modeling Concepts in one Form, Adaptation or another. But most Crucially, a Product engineer working on the Actual design of Each product is fully Fluent in the Technical background of what he or she is Developing.
For example, a Mechanical engineer working on the Mechanical design of Car lighting got the Task because he had a Training background in electronics -Mechanical design, Thermal Simulation Methods and is Knowledgeable with the basic properties and Dynamics of automotive lighting Performance.
Through the use of Heat Transfer Simulation Analysis, He is able to Fully Appreciates that electronics generate Thermal heat and the Adverse effect of Excess Thermal Heating on Overall performance. Also, through the Usage of Computational CFD Thermal Analysis, He understands that Cramming PCB and electronics into an Enclosed Casing will create thermal Issues.
Using Transient Thermal Analysis Simulation, He Appreciates that many electronic Parts are at his disposal to reduce the Overall Thermal heat, including Thermal heat-sinks for Effective Thermal Dissipation. Even the Usage of different materials may result in different operating Conditions that may change the Influence of heat.
In short, Mechanical design engineers Trained to perform Steady-State Thermal Analysis Modeling are more than Able To Use CFD Simulation Software For assessing and Solve the Engineering Challenges using Multiphysics Simulation Modeling.
They are also able to check multiple design Variations using Thermodynamics Simulation to see which Design Concepts are the most effective, testing them, and Creating a solid Engineering design.
 

Growing Complexity of Designing Engineering Systems

For example, the Quantity of electronic Parts in cars has increased drastically. Electronics Presently accounts for Approximately 35 to 40 % of its Product’s Entire cost. The Mercedes-Benz S-Class Car has Around 100+ ECUs and Has nearly as many ECUs as the Airbus A380 (excluding the plane’s inflight entertainment system) 4.
Therefore, Product Engineer needs Usage Of multiple Software tools across mechanical and electric domains, such as Solidworks Frame Design Module and Solidworks FEA Analysis to perform Vehicle Dynamics Simulation. This helps to guarantee timely delivery of Finished products that Satisfy customer specifications.
This Complicated environment needs a high level of Interconnectedness to function effectively. Despite this Sophistication, organizations that have Used Solidworks Additive Manufacturing Currently implemented frontloaded CFD Simulation have not Required to re-imagine or change their Entire Development process to Gain from it.
Many R&D team Management originally Believe that it would be more convenient to Utilize existing Engineering Software Solutions, but they quickly Learnt that they were forcing their Engineering teams to Choose the wrong Solutions to perform FEA and CFD Modeling such as Heat Exchanger Simulation.
The key success Ingredient is selecting the Correct solution that offers the right Number of application-specific functionality and that Complements existing -existing engineering Workflows without any Suffering any disruption.
Of course, this selection goes Way beyond just Considering Prices, such as Solidworks Simulation Cost, or Solidworks Flow Simulation Price.
