      Overview

      What is Autodesk CFD?

      Autodesk CFD overview video (3.18 min.)

      Autodesk CFD is a computational fluid dynamics simulation software that engineers and analysts use to intelligently predict how liquids and gases will perform.

      Autodesk CFD helps to minimise the need for physical prototypes while providing deeper insight into fluid flow design performance.

      Design systems with fluid, thermal and motion insights

      Autodesk CFD fluid flow simulation

      Autodesk CFD provides engineers with a range of powerful tools for system design optimisation.

      • Fluid flow and free surface movement
      • Thermal management for electronics cooling
      • BIM integration for occupant comfort of HVAC in AEC and MEP

      Automate design studies for improved efficiency

      CFD’s Decision Center automates design comparisons for easier result interpretation and decision making

      Autodesk CFD Decision Center

      The Application Programming Interface (API) and scripting functions expand the base capabilities of Autodesk CFD through the Decision Centre’s customisation and automation of common tasks. In addition, the Decision Centre automates system design comparisons to speed up design-based decision-making.
