FLOWNEX

Flownex® SE determines pressure drop and heat transfer

Driving thermal-fluid flow 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 have on various components, allowing clients to examine extensively all the possible variations in the design and optimization of systems.

Flownex® is developed to meet ISO 9001:2008 and NQA1 quality assurance system and environmental standards. Flownex® is also the only software of its kind to hold a nuclear accreditation, a testament to the quality, reliability and accuracy of its simulation capabilities.
