FloMASTER, formerly known as Flowmaster, is the leading general purpose 1D computational fluid dynamics (CFD) solution for the modeling and analysis of fluid mechanics in complex piping systems of any scale.
Companies can maximize their return on investment by integrating FloMASTER at every stage of the development process, taking advantage of the data management and collaborative capabilities of this analytical tool. It is used by companies across a wide range of industries to reduce the development time and costs of their thermo-fluid systems. It helps systems engineers to
Simulate pressure surge, temperature and fluid flow rates system-wide
Understand how design alterations, component size, selection and operating conditions will affect the overall fluid system performance accurately and quickly.
Powerful Transient Solver
Versatile steady state and transient simulation of incompressible and compressible systems with heat transfer analysis
Pressure surge analysis, temperature and fluid flowrate prediction
Extensive catalog of customizable component models with built-in empirical data
Open, Extendable Architecture
Create bespoke component models
Create scripts for controlling components or networks
Open API structure allows integration into user product development process including in-house codes, CAE, manufacturing and optimization tools
Functional Mock-up Interface (FMI) support for model export and co-simulation allows FloMASTER models to be shared across other CAE tools during the design process through an independent standard for model exchange.
Export the hydrodynamic forces generated by a transient event as a time history to leading pipe stress analysis tools such as SST CAEPIPE and Integraph® CAESAR II®.
Secure Traceable Data
Secure storage of networks, performance data, components and results in an industry standard relational database
Audit trail & tracking of model design history with ‘roll back’ functionality
Administration controls for user access permissions to project data
Database synchronization to enable engineers to work safely onsite, offline from the server
Design Optimization Capability
The ‘Experiments’ feature in FloMASTER provides users with the ability to conduct superior ‘what-if’ analyses for 1D thermo-fluid analysis.
Using a Latin Square algorithm, FloMASTER helps users generate unique combinations of distributed input values between specific bounds. This ability creates an ideal foundation for the creation of meta-models and response surfaces that characterize a FloMASTER system response
Monte Carlo simulations can be performed to produce simulation results based on a probability distribution generated from a mean and standard deviation for selected input parameters. This allows the effect of small variations in input values to be examined and enables FloMASTER to be used in risk analysis and quality control environments such as Design for Six Sigma (DFSS)
1D-3D Design and Simulation
Using CAD2FM, engineers can automatically generation system level models in FloMASTER from 3D geometry in tools such as NX, Solid Edge, CATIA, Creo, and Solidworks, reducing the network creation time by up to 95%.
Simulation Based Characterization (SBC) allows unique or novel component level designs to be characterized thermally or with respect to pressure drop using 3D CFD in FloEFD. This characterization can then be used inside FloMASTER for more accurate analysis of the overall system behavior.
OneSim is a tightly coupled co-simulation workflow that enables a 3D CFD model in FloEFD to be considered as part of a 1D CFD FloMASTER network. Such a workflow enables the accuracy of a 3D CFD simulation to be applied to parts that would otherwise be overly simplified when represented as system level components.
