Simulate Transients with Flownex ! – Online Workshop

About Course

This online workshop aims to simulate steady state to tranient conditions of various thermal-hydrualic networks and scenarios. Transient / Dynamic simulation gives users the ability to model the time varying behavior of a system. Hands on training on process flow and heat transfer systems with real-time case studies using Flownex - Thermal - Fluid Simulation Software.


Flownex® Simulation Environment delivers technology that 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.
