Flownex - System Level Analysis where Fluid is the Driving Factor

Flownex Simulation Environment enables engineers to study how systems will behave in the real world, where fluid is the driving factor. Flownex system simulation relays the overall effect of changing specific properties on components, enabling clients to examine in depth all possible variations of a system in the design and optimization of systems.

Fluid flow and heat transfer dependent systems have been revolutionized in the past decades by reducing costly physical testing and accelerating time to market. Unfortunately for many companies, simulation has mainly focused on components and requires significant time in pre and post processing. Flownex SE offers a fast, reliable and accurate total system and subsystem approach to simulation.

Flownex® Simulation Environment enables you to study how systems will behave in the real world, where fluid is the driving factor. Flownex® system simulation relays the overall effect of changing specific properties on components, allowing clients to examine extensively all possible variations in the design and optimization of systems. Flownex® is developed in an ISO 9001:2008 and NQA1 quality assurance system environment.

Flownex® is the only software of its kind to hold a nuclear accreditation, a testament to the quality, reliability and accuracy of our simulation software.
