FLOW-3D offers simulation solutions to many of the challenges in the automotive industry, including transient flow dynamics, (both free-surface and confined), thermal energy transfer in fluids and solids, phase change, 6-degrees of freedom motion of solids and a coupled finite element solver for mechanically and thermally induced stresses. Explore the full list of FLOW-3D‘s modeling capabilities.

Traditional areas of interest for the automotive industry include: fuel tank sloshing, underhood thermal management and spray control, early fuel shut-off during fill, degas bottles, fluid resistance of powertrain components, and casting of automotive parts.
