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, finite element, 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 and solids 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.

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 has been deprecated. FloCAD now provides a superset of Sinaps non-geometric modeling features, including geometric options. Existing Sinaps models can now be exported to Thermal Deskop and FloCAD. Please contact CRTech for more information.

Advanced Pipes in FloCAD
Thursday November 14, 9-10am MT (8-9am PT, 11am-noon ET)
This webinar introduces advanced features for FloCAD pipes in addition to working with complex geometry. Complex geometry includes interior fins and surfaces for heat transfer, flow around enclosed objects, annular flow, concentric pipes, and more. FK Locators and TEEs as modeling objects will also be introduced.
Custom Heat Transfer and Pressure Drops
Tuesday November 19, 2-3pm MT (1-2pm PT, 4-5pm ET)
Do you know what the default assumptions are in FloCAD, and whether or not they apply in your situation? Do you know how far you can go past that starting point? The answer: pretty far. There are numerous mechanisms in FloCAD for adjusting factors, scaling uncertainties, and applying different or supplemental correlations. This webinar summarizes the options available to you to customize your flow models to make sure that they apply to each new situation you encounter.
Heat Exchangers: Detailed and System-level
Thursday November 21, 2-3pm MT (1-2pm PT, 4-5pm ET)
This is two webinars in one. The first explains the use and assumptions behind the FloCAD HX system-level modeling object. The second webinar describes detailed-level modeling of complex heat exchanger passages, including application of Compact Heat Exchanger (CHX) methods.
Starting in 2020, we will begin offering Introduction to Thermal Desktop and Introduction to RadCAD as either in-person training or online training, alternating between online and in-person every three months. The training uses lectures and demonstrations to introduce you to basic Thermal Desktop and RadCAD usage. Hands-on tutorials provide practice building models and interpreting results (tutorials are completed by students outside of the online class time).
 
The next training class will be an online format in January 2020:
  • Introduction to Thermal Desktop (and SINDA) - A three-part series on January 14, 16, and 21 from 9am to 12pm, Mountain time
  • Introduction to RadCAD - January 23 from 9am to 12pm, Mountain time
For up-to-date schedules, fees, and policies, visit our Product Training page. To register for the class above, complete our registration form and select "Online" for the Training Format.
 
If you are interested in product training for your company based on your schedule, please contact us to obtain a quote for training between 8-12 attendees. We can come to your facility or the lectures can be presented online. Descriptions of the available classes can be found in our course catalog.
