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.

Introduction to Two-phase Flow

September 24, 2-3pm MDT

This webinar introduces basic concepts in two-phase flow modeling including quality, void fraction, flow regimes, slip flow, pressure drops and accelerations, and heat transfer.

No knowledge of CRTech software is required. However, references to the corresponding FloCAD features will be made to assist users of that product.

Introductory FloCAD Training

Class times: September 5, 10, and 12, 2019, 9:00 am to 12:00 pm MDT daily
Cost: no charge (attendees must have an active support contract)

CRTech will be hosting introductory training for FloCAD (Flow Modeling in Thermal Desktop). This is our standard FloCAD class previously hosted in a classroom environment and now restructured for an online teaching environment.

The class will introduce single-phase fluid modeling concepts and how to build fluid models within the FloCAD work environment. Topics covered include an introduction to fluid modeling components, geometric versus non-geometric modeling options, working with FloCAD Pipes, solution control, and an introduction to path and pipe libraries.

The class will be broken into three two- to three-hour sessions held over a 3 day period. The format will be online lecture and demonstration with opportunities to ask questions. Hands-on lab work will be provided to students to work on after each session. To gain the most from this class, students are encouraged to attend all three sessions.

Prerequisites: Attendees must have basic working knowledge of Thermal Desktop as many of its base features will not be covered in this class but their usage is required for FloCAD.

Eligibility Requirement: This class is a service to our customers. All attendees must have an active support contract. If you are unsure of your support status, please contact CRTech.
