Products

C&R Technologies® provides a suite of tools that can handle all of your heat transfer and fluid flow modeling problems. Built on top of our core solving engine, SINDA/FLUINT, we provide geometric (Thermal Desktop®, FloCAD®, RadCAD®, and SINDA/FLUINT) or nongeometric (Sinaps® and SINDA/FLUINT) GUI tools that can help you build and analyze any system. Review our Product Selection Matrix and Getting Started Guide for assistance in selecting the products which best meet your needs. All of our products are available for free evaluation.

We are dedicated to producing software tools that not only help heat transfer and fluid flow design engineers produce analytical answers, but also product solutions. Regardless of which GUI tool suite you select, you can apply advanced techniques that transcend traditional steady state and transient simulations into the realm of design optimization and statistical analyses. CRTech also offers the most comprehensive two-phase thermohydraulic analyzer available.

SINDA/FLUINT

SINDA/FLUINT is a comprehensive finite-difference, lumped parameter (circuit or network analogy) tool for analyzing complex heat transfer and fluid flow systems.

Thermal Desktop

Thermal Desktop is a PC based thermal model builder with a built-in mesher. Thermal Desktop incorporates both familiar parameter based finite difference surfaces with finite elements using CAD technology to model heat transfer in a system. Thermal Desktop develops the capacitance and conductance network for input to SINDA/FLUINT. Additionally Thermal Desktop provides capabilities such as applying contact conductance, insulation, heat loads, and heaters.

RadCAD

RadCAD is the thermal radiation analyzer for use with Thermal Desktop or standalone. RadCAD provides options for using Monte Carlo Ray Tracing or progressive radiosity to calculate form factors, radiation conductors, and heating rates for geometrically defined surfaces. RadCAD is an add-on module for Thermal Desktop.

FloCAD

FloCAD is a graphical fluid analyzer module available for use with Thermal Desktop facilitating the integrated analysis of fluid and thermal systems within a CAD-based environment. FloCAD is an add-on module for Thermal Desktop which provides access to all of the capabilities in FLUINT.

TD Direct

TD Direct is an add-on module for Thermal Desktop providing a bi-directional port to SpaceClaim, enhancing the CAD preparation and model maintenance processes. Analysts can extend the CAD preparation features in SpaceClaim by meshing surfaces and solids during import into Thermal Desktop, tag surfaces for heat loads, contact conductance, convection, and easily update the mesh if the part geometry changes.

Sinaps

Sinaps is a complete pre- and postprocessing tool for SINDA/FLUINT. Users sketch their thermal and/or fluid circuits on the screen, validate inputs, launch a SINDA/FLUINT run, and then visualize results on their original schematic. Sinaps is no longer supported and annual maintenance will no longer be available for purchase after November 1, 2016.

FloCAD online training

Class times: May 2 & 4 from 10am to 2pm MT

Cost: $425

This online class will provide an introduction to fluid modeling components within FloCAD. The class will be held over a 2-day period, with daily sessions running approximately 4 hours each. The class uses a mixture of lecture, demonstrations, and self-paced tutorials to allow attendees to practice building fluid system models and interpreting results. The presentations will comprise 2 - 3 hours of each session, and the instructor will be available during the remainder of the time for questions during tutorials. Attendees must have basic working knowledge of SINDA and Thermal Desktop as these topics will not be covered but their usage is required for FloCAD.

Using Sinaps? It is not too soon to get started with TD/FloCAD!

This webinar describes the process for converting from Sinaps to Thermal Desktop (TD) and FloCAD. This process includes using an exporter which works with Version 6.0 of the CRTech tool suite (expected to be released in May of 2017).

Come learn about the basics of TD/FloCAD, including many compelling features not available in Sinaps. The webinar will also cover how to manage the transition period, during which you may be using both programs simultaneously. This is also a chance to ask questions.
