Is structural analysis enough or should design engineers use CFD too?
This guest post on the Siemens Solid Edge Blog explores this question. With product complexity increasing, it is harder than ever for engineers to make the right decision decisions. Complexity comes from the ever increasing amount of components, configurations, and electronics. Consequently, greater complexity has also increased the importance of understanding additional physics. For example, it’s critical to understand the interactions of airflow around electronics so that they do not overheat. This is where Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) fits in.
CFD helps analyze airflow, among other fluids, and can help you uncover common problems that lead to failure, beyond what only structural analysis does. With this in mind, how else can it help design decisions?
This guest post discusses the many ways Computational Fluid Dynamics can help engineers design better products.
