Air Flow analysis - Ductwork

Air Flow analysis - Ductwork

Good Morning,

My name is Daniel and I need some information about the analysis and fluid dynamics with the  Simulation CFD software.

My company works in the construction industry and we use Autodesk Revit software for modelling of ductwork for ventilation (rooms, open space, restaurants, hotels, museums, etc ...)

We would like to find a software that allows us to make a fluid dynamic analysis of air within the pipework/ductwork (from a AHU to the ventilation grille in the room).

I would like to ask the following questions:

1) Is it possible to import Revit models into Pro E and then work on them to make fluid flow analysis?

2) Is it possible to make an analysis of the pressure drop in the ductwork?

3) Is it possible to make an analysis for the velocity along the route of the ductwork?

4) Is it possible to make an analysis of air temperatures along the ductwork?

Thanks to all of you.

I've found this forum very useful!!!!

Hi Danis....

I would like to say a bit THANKS to you!!!

I've got another question now: do you think it will be possible to export a Revit file into Pro E? Which kind of file types should I use for the export? (i can use: .dwg  .dxf   .dwf   .dwfx    .xml    .fbx    .dgn    .ifc   .sat    .adsk )

I'm really new with Revit and Pro E so I don't know the answer.... I just need to import ductwork into Pro E.

Thanks a lot! 😃

Hello Daniele,

Revit is a software for the design and construction of buildings.

Do you have what version of proE.

ProE in you have the ability to import a file, you can see what you have to choice depending on Revit.

But your import will be a 'function' cannot be changed.

I know well what you want to do exactly.

Otherwise you can see this:

Hi Denis,

I've got Pro E wildfire 5.0
I know that mine is a strange request... but I would like to find an easy way to check what we design....
You are right, Revit is a software for construction and pro E is for manufacturing.
But with Revit it's possible to do easy calculations and sometime they are wrong. Revit is not a software for analysis.

The problem is: we can not stop to use Revit because in the construction sector is the best! but we have to find a way to do analysis and check if our job is correct.

Thanks for your help Denis...
I hope you can give me a hand because I really don't know if there is an answer for my problem.


Cheers.

Welcome Daniele - thank you so much for the feedback.

Best,

Toby
