Flownex® Simulation Environment


Flownex® Simulation Environment is a state-of-the-art engineering tool that enables the design and optimisation of fluid flow and heat transfer systems.

As an engineering consultancy with specialisms in fluid dynamics, Flownex® is one of many industry-leading software packages that we use in our projects here at DOCAN. It’s particularly valuable when we look at the design and engineering of pressure systems, pressure vessels and piping networks.


Why we use Flownex®

Our team of engineers and consultants are proficient in the Flownex® package, and it’s an invaluable software to have in our toolkit when working with complex fluid systems such as power plants or nuclear reactors.

We can utilise it to simulate even the most complex systems quickly, accurately and easily to understand how they will behave in the real world, whenever fluid dynamics is the driving factor. This means that we’re able to rapidly predict, design and optimise fluid flow in our client’s systems, getting them ready for real-world applications.

For our clients, this means that we can provide them with a tangible and effective solution to their thermofluid problems in a timely manner and for us, it improves the accuracy of our results and helps us to drive another successful project forward.

How we can use Flownex® to help with your project

Whilst we don’t rely solely on software within our consultancy services, having direct access to packages such as Flownex® allows us to offer our clients market-leading solutions. We combine our advanced technical skills and experienced perspectives to deliver value to each project, whilst utilising the most relevant and effective software.

We understand that our clients don’t necessarily have access to this type of resource or the technical skills to use it to its full potential, so that’s where we come in. Our clients can benefit from the advanced technology that Flownex® has to offer, streamlining the process and improving the outcome.

If you’ve got a fluid flow or heat transfer problem, we can help. As a member of NAFEMS, the international body for engineering analysis & simulation, DOCAN complies with industry best practices for all fluid dynamics analyses carried out.
