AUT912 - Introduction to Fluid Sim

AUT912 - Introduction to Fluid Sim

Designed as a general introduction to the potential of this software tool, FluidSim is versatile for preparing instruction in education institutions and vocational training, as experimentation and self-learning system, as a CAD system for the design and testing of control systems.
This course uses a combination of short learning modules and hands-on exercises to convert theory and understanding into practical based knowledge.

Target Group
All personnel involved with the training of pneumatic, electro-pneumatic hydraulic, electro-hydraulic and programmable logic controllers.

This one (1) day course covers the following topics:

  • Symbol Libraries
  • Design of circuits
  • Simulating and testing circuits
  • Creating faults
  • Creating Libraries
  • State Diagrams
  • Component animation
  • Working Principles
  • Exercises
  • Presentations
  • Extended presentations
  • Lesson plans
  • Student and Lecturer Notes
  • Educational Films
  • External Interfacing


At the conclusion of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Understand and navigate around the software freely
  • Understand and design fluid power and programmable logic controller circuit diagrams
  • Simulate and test these circuits
  • Change circuit parameters such as flow, pressure and component characteristics
  • Create lecturer and student training notes
  • Create tailored presentations
  • Create tailored libraries
  • Link the software to external equipment and machinery.
  • Use videos in lesson plans
  • Install and de-install the software
