RhinoCFD Beta - Computational fluid dynamics in Rhino

RhinoCFD is a new plug-in for Rhino by CHAM that adds the power of computational fluid dynamics to the CAD environment. Rhino users can undertake interactive CFD investigation of their CAD models operating under a multitude of flow conditions, all without leaving the Rhinoceros environment.

Until December, it is free to download and use as a beta release.

  • Easy to create CFD meshes without worrying about fitting to your complex geometry
  • A convergence wizard which greatly reduces the complexity of obtaining converged solutions
  • Model conjugate heat transfer and other heat-related scenarios, including radiation modeling
  • Large library or gas, liquid, and solid properties
  • Full visualization of flow patterns within Rhino
  • Steady state and time-dependent transient flows
  • Selection of various turbulence models
Contact with any questions or thoughts on the software!
