Thermal and Flow Analysis Training

Thermal and Flow Analysis Training

Date(s) - Jun 24, 2013 - Jun 26, 2013

Cypress, CA


Software / Version: NX™ 8.0
User Level: Intermediate
Duration: 3 days
Who should attend: Designers, engineers who use NX™ to model heat transfer and fluid flow

The NX™ Thermal and Flow Analysis course provides students with comprehensive instruction in the use of NX™ Thermal and Flow to model heat transfer and 3D fluid flow problems. Students will learn the skills necessary to carry out sophisticated thermal and Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) analysis quickly and easily. The course covers both theoretical and practical aspects of how the software handles heat transfer by conduction, convection and radiation and includes a variety of examples and tutorials addressing a wide range of applications.


  • Advanced Simulation Processes (TR15020)
  • Successful completion of Advanced Simulation self-paced courses on Learning Advantage can also be used to prepare for this course.
  • Participant needs to have a working knowledge of NX™ modeling, and a basic understanding of finite element analysis (FEA) and computational fluid dynamics (CFD) principles.
