Flowmaster V7

Fluid thinking for systems engineers

Overview

Flowmaster V7 is the leading general purpose 1D computational fluid dynamics (CFD) solution for modeling and analysis of fluid mechanics and pipe/duct flow in complex systems.

Companies can maximize their return on investment by integrating Flowmaster at every stage of the development process, taking advantage of the data management and collaborative capabilities of this analytical tool. It is used by companies across a wide range of industries to reduce the development time and costs of their thermo-fluid systems. It helps systems engineers to:

  • Simulate pressure surge, temperature and fluid flow rates system-wide
  • Understand how design alterations, component size, selection and operating conditions will affect the overall fluid system performance accurately and quickly

“The ability to integrate Flowmaster into a front-end spreadsheet program enabled us to provide our engineers with a fully capable and adaptable simulation package, able to be rapidly and easily turned to real-world onboard operating line-ups.”

David Millar, Babcock Marine

Powerful Transient Solver

  • Versatile steady state and transient simulation of incompressible and compressible systems with heat transfer analysis
  • Pressure surge analysis, temperature and fluid flowrate prediction
  • Extensive catalog of customizable component models with built-in empirical data

Flowmaster Development Process

Open, Extendable Architecture

  • Create bespoke component models
  • Create scripts for controlling components or networks
  • Open API structure allows integration into user product development process including in-house codes, CAE, manufacturing and optimization tools

Powerful Relational Database Manages and Tracks all Flowmaster Entities

Secure Traceable Data

  • Secure storage of networks, performance data, components and results in an industry standard relational database
  • Audit trail & tracking of model design history with ‘roll back’ functionality
  • Administration controls for user access permissions to project data
  • Database synchronization to enable engineers to work safely onsite, offline from the server

Design Optimization Capability

The ‘Experiments’ feature in Flowmaster provides users with the ability to conduct superior ‘what-if’ analyses for 1D thermo-fluid analysis.

  • Using a Latin Square algorithm, Flowmaster helps users generate unique combinations of distributed input values between specific bounds. This ability creates an ideal foundation for the creation of meta-models and response surfaces that characterize a Flowmaster system response
  • Monte Carlo simulations can be performed to produce simulation results based on a probability distribution generated from a mean and standard deviation for selected input parameters. This allows the effect of small variations in input values to be examined and enables Flowmaster to be used in risk analysis and quality control environments such as Design for Six Sigma (DFSS)

Unique 1D-3D Simulation for thorough System Level Design

  • Accurately characterize individual components in FloEFD 3D CFD software
  • Use component characteristics in 1D system-level models for system simulation
  • Increases solution accuracy and minimizes computational resources and execution times
  • Augment component library
