E-book: Smarter Multiphysics CFD

Software Cradle Empowers the Future of Co-simulation

Horizontal spacer

We all experience physics-related phenomena in our everyday lives, as fluids act in harmony with structures, magnetics, electrics, and all in a myriad of complex ways. As engineers, we seek to understand these phenomena through numerical approximations such as computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulations.

Adoption of CFD is being driven by broader recognition of its technical benefits – from predictive insights to product verification and validation – alongside business benefits such as reduced costs, right-first-time designs, higher manufacturing productivity, elimination of waste, reduced product recalls, and reduced time-to-market. Despite these benefits, multi-disciplinary physics CFD simulation still holds a wealth of potential that relatively few industries and companies have fully capitalized on.

This eBook, Smarter Multiphysics CFD, explores the diversity of cutting-edge applications touched by fluids engineering today. It includes compelling case studies from a wealth of sectors, demonstrating the scope and range of applications in which CFD simulation is helping industries and companies innovate.
