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 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 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 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 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 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.
