Flowmaster ®

Fluid system modeling, simulation, and control


  • Thermo-fluid system simulation software
  • Incompressible and compressible fluid system design
  • Steady-state and transient pipeline simulation
  • Flow balancing and heat transfer analysis
  • Interface to MATLAB and Simulink for control systems analysis and simulation
  • Co-simulation with Simulink at time-step level



Flowmaster is a system simulation software tool used by companies across a wide range of industries to reduce the development time and costs for their thermo-fluid systems. Flowmaster is an interactive fluid flow analysis package that simulates one-dimensional fluid flow and heat transfer in pipes, passages, and fittings. Engineers use Flowmaster to predict pressure, temperature, and flow rates around a network flow system in steady or dynamic conditions.

Flowmaster can perform a co-simulation analysis with MATLAB® and Simulink®, enabling users to perform detailed modeling of the complete fluid and control systems. Data from a Flowmaster model is passed to the Simulink model at each time step. Simulink then calculates new control signals that are applied to the Flowmaster model. This co-simulation approach gives users the ability to create virtual prototypes of entire systems.
