Advanced Computational Fluid Dynamics

What is PowerFLOW CFD?

By leveraging unique, inherently transient Lattice Boltzmann-based physics, our PowerFLOW CFD solution performs fluid simulations that accurately predict real-world conditions.

PowerFLOW imports fully complex model geometry and accurately and efficiently performs aerodynamic, aeroacoustics, and thermal management simulations, this allows engineers to evaluate product performance early in the design process, before any physical prototypes are created — when the impact of change is most significant for design and budgets.

  • High-fidelity CFD solution
  • No volume & boundary layer meshing
  • Highly parallelized & scalable solution
  • Sophisticated physical modeling
