is a comprehensive finite-difference, lumped parameter (circuit
or network analogy) tool for heat transfer design and fluid
flow modeling of complex systems. It is used at over 500 sites in
the aerospace, electronics, petrochemical, biomedical, and automotive
industries, and in over 25 countries.
SINDA/FLUINT has provided users with the most proven heat transfer
and fluid flow design and analysis software in the aerospace
industry. SINDA/FLUINT is a comprehensive, generalized tool
for simulating complex thermal/fluid systems such as those found
in the electronics, automotive, petrochemical, turbomachine,
and aerospace industries. The program has proven itself repeatedly
for several decades.SINDA/FLUINT
saves time and money by making the design process faster and easier,
letting you gain a better understanding of your complex system.
You control what is important and how to get the answer to your
design performance questions using the most efficient approach.
Furthermore, the code is completely extensible. You choose the features
you want, decide what levels of accuracy and approximation are appropriate,
and what outputs are needed. You can even add your own customizations
as needed to handle your unique design task or to automate repetitive
tasks.SINDA/FLUINT uses text based input files. To expedite model development and maintenance, it is recommended SINDA/FLUINT be used in conjunction with one of its graphical user interfaces (GUIs). Thermal Desktop® provides a geometric CAD based user interface while Sinaps® provides a non-geometric, 2D scketch-pad interface. Both GUIs interface directly with SINDA/FLUINT. Alternatively, C&R Technologies provides an Excel®-based SINDA Controller useful for launching and controlling a SINDA/FLUINT model. Similarly, the COM-based API can be used to interface with MATLAB or COM-based application.More

has a free Converter that will
read in a file from Sinda/G® or CINDA and create a file suitable for SINDA/FLUINT. This utility
will take most of the drudgery away from the task of converting
input files from other versions of Sinda. (Detailed

Since SINDA/FLUINT allows user logic and
generates a unique executable each time it is run, you MUST have a copy of the specified compiler on each machine in order to
run it. If you
wish to run an evaluation version of SINDA/FLUINT you must download
the built-in compiler version.
