Global Parameterization in Aavid SmartCFD

Aavid SmartCFD enables more advanced users to automate and parameterize model construction and environmental conditions. Users can use Global Parameterization to construct complex components like liquid cold plates using parameters for the key dimensions and create new designs instantaneously by just changing a few parameters. This enables users to explore multiple designs faster in the initial development stages of product design. Engineers are able to proceed to prototyping with more confidence in their design by using the Aavid SmartCFD Global Parameterization feature.

The Global Project Parameter Window supports Python syntax where users can define global variables, define custom functions, define lists and dictionaries, and import advanced Python modules for additional functionality. Aavid SmartCFD users can update global variables across multiple components in the model, dynamically adjust relationships between geometries or properties, and automate calculations and model construction for common projects.

The Global Project Parameter Window in Aavid SmartCFD takes thermal simulations to the next level and puts more model construction power into the hands of design engineers and researchers.
