Coupling ANSYS Mechanical and Flownex

The below example demontrates how to couple Flownex and ANSYS mechanical using the Mechanical Generic Interface component. For those that don’t know, Flownex is a thermal-fluid system modeling tool that is great for modeling heat, flow, pressure, etc… in systems.  At PADT we often connect it to ANSYS Mechanical to do more detailed component level […]

New Flownex Training Course Available Online

We are pleased to announce the new Flownex Training Course for Flownex SE, the world’s best (we think) thermal-fluid modeling tool.  The Flownex course is aimed at new users with a desire to quickly equip themselves in the basics of system modelling as well as enabling one to visually refresh one’s memory on the various […]

Driving the Design of Small Modular Nuclear Reactors with Flownex

The development of small modular nuclear reactors, or SMR’s, is a complex task that involves balancing the thermodynamic performance of the entire system. Flownex is the ideal tool for modeling  pressure drop [flow] and heat transfer [temperature] for the connected components of a complete system in steady state and transient, sizing and optimizing pumps or compressors, pipes, valves, tanks, and […]

New Enhancements to Flownex 2015: Even Better Fluid-Thermal Simulation

The developers of Flownex have been hard at work again and have put out a fantastic update to Flownex 2015.  These additions go far beyond what most simulation programs include in an update, so we thought it was worth a bit of a blog article to share it with everyone.  You can also download the full […]

Major Enhancements in FLOWNEX 2015: Combustors, Importers, and Pipes

Simulation has revolutionized flow and heat transfer dependent systems over the past decades by minimizing costly physical testing and accelerating time to operation around the world. But for many companies, such simulation has largely focused on components and proved to be very time consuming. The technology advancements delivered by Flownex SE now offer a fast, […]

Flownex and PADT Sponsor University of Houston’s Rankin Rollers Team

A group of enthusiastic students at the University of Houston are doing their part at solving that age old academia problem: not enough hand’s on experience.  They are designing and building a working steam turbine for the schools Thermodynamics lab so students can experiment with a Rankin cycle, learn how to take meaningful measurements, and […]

Integrating ANSYS Fluent and Mechanical with Flownex

Component boundaries generated in Flownex are useful in CFD simulation (inlet velocities, pressures, temperatures, mass flow). Generation of fluid and surface temperature distribution results from Flownex can also be useful in many FEA simulations. For this reason the latest release of Flownex SE was enhance to include several levels of integration with ANSYS.   ANF Import […]

Flownex 2014 Released and Webinars Announced

The June release of Flownex SE software includes numerous updates for companies that model thermal fluid systems; videos and webinars are available to showcase the impact of these enhancements. Flownex SE has increased the ability of engineers to accurately model their fluid-thermal with the release of version of Flownex 2014 on June 19th, 2014. The […]

Top 10 New Thermal Fluid Modeling Capabilities in Flownex 2014

We are pleased to announce the release of Flownex SE 2014.  This is a very exciting release for all of us involved in Flownex because it introduces a mix of advanced features and usability enhancements – we love better and easier.  We will be publishing more information about this release, as well as videos and […]

Press Release: PADT and M-Tech Industries to Highlight Fluid-Thermal System Modeling for Mining with Flownex at 2014 SME Annual Meeting and Exhibit

We are very excited about the upcoming 2014 SME Annual Meeting and Exhibit in Salt Lake City, Utah.  Not only is this in our very own back yard (or is it our front or side yard?) it is a great place for us to show off Flownex Simulation Environment and how useful it is for […]

Press Release: Free Thermal-Fluid Simulation Training Offered to Mark Growing Usage in the US and Demonstrate Advantages of Flownex Simulation Environment

PADT is getting the word out about growing usage of the Flownex Simulation Environment in the US, and marking that growth with some free training in January. If our previous avalanche of marketing did not embed it in your memory, Flownex is a simulation tool used to model thermal-fluid systems.  PADT is the distributor for […]

PADT Events – March 2017

March starts out with a bang, with a ton of events in that very first week. So we are updating everyone on the month’s events a week early. They cover a wide range of customers and states, so we hope to see many of you there. The most important is our Open House for families, […]

PADT Events – November 2016

Welcome to November, when things start getting really busy with end of year events.  We have a lot going on with celebrations and seminars.  Take a look and we hope to see you this month! November 6-10: Las Vegas, NV ANS Winter Meeting & Expo PADT’s Flownex team will be at the winter meeting with […]

PADT Events – June 2016

The year is almost halfway over and the pace of events that PADT is attending and holding is slackening a bit as we account for summer vacation and, in Phoenix, the blistering heat.   Take a look below to see what we have planned, mostly webinars, and review what happened in a fun filled May below.
