# How to Model Heat in AutoCAD 2017

Simulation software can help engineers optimize heat transfer in their designs. Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulations take into account both heat transfer and fluid flow. CFD analysis can return both visual and technical data to help you create designs that use energy more effectively.

You can perform this type of analysis using or and auto desk simulation multiphysicsÂ software. See more about simulation for sustanyial desigh
