midas NFX offers multi-disciplinary analysis features, which cover structural analysis, CFD analysis and topology optimization.

For structural analysis, midas NFX provides total solutions to general analysis types such as linear, modal and heat transfer analysis, as well as advanced analysis features such as contact, nonlinear and explicit dynamic analysis.

CFD analysis allows comprehensive and accurate simulations of heat transfer and fluid flows, associated with the specialized functions such as moving mesh and free surface. Structural analysis can also be coupled with CFD simulations.
