Click to view contentI'm trying to simulate a simple case of external flow, a solid sphere with 5cm diameter against a air flow in X direction, but when i try to run the simulation it get stuck in the preparing model phase, i have been waiting for a while but nothing happens and the processors don't look like they were working. i'm running it on a workstation with 2… (Show more)

I am new to SolidWorks Flow Simulation.  I have been trying to create a lift curve for a wing.  I have not figured out how to do that.  Any help is greatly appreciated!   Thanks, Joe T.

Click to view contentHi, I would like to simulate a water spray coming out of the nozzle at a given velocity and then propagating in the air and interacting with the solid body:     The simulation is actually in 3D. I'm not sure if my approach is correct. I chose time-dependent free surface flow with two fluids (water and air) and gravity included. Water flow… (Show more)

Sorry for the repeat.  I may have used the wrong 'method' to ask for advice.       I am new to SolidWorks Flow Simulation.  I have been trying to create a lift curve for a wing.  I have not figured out how to do that.  Any help is greatly appreciated!   Thanks, Joe T.

I may have used the wrong "method" looking for help.  Sorry for the repeat, but now as a question:     All,   I have been watching a lot of videos on how to use Flow Sim.  Some are very good.   But, I still have a lot of questions.  Also, there have not been any responses to my original question:  How to Create a Wing Lift Curve?  Any inputs there… (Show more)

Click to view contentI am trying to set a disc as a volume heat source (radiation) inside a flow simulation by using the volume heat source temperature menu. I want the temperature to be defined radially so that the center is 1093K and the outer edge is 1073K. In the screenshot below, you can see the setup that I put in for F(radius), which seems to show the… (Show more)

Hello,   I'm trying to run a what if analysis in flow simulation looking at temperature, pressure and relative humidity. When I go to select my input variables I can see Pressure and Temperature, but not option to tick the Relative Humidity. In the base simulation setup I've ticked the humidity option in my fluids under general settings.   Is… (Show more)

I’m building a steel frame house and want to assess steel temperatures and optimise insulation placement for minimising heat loss. The trouble is that I don’t seem to be getting boundary conditions correct, since I don’t trust numbers provided.   I have drawn a standard section of the house incorporating a steel column. This included cutting the… (Show more)

Hello all,   Info: I am trying to do a parametric study of an inner and outer diameter of a custom object I have made- let's just consider this a fan. So clearly for this fan, I can adjust the inner and outer diameter and that would change the airflow or velocity profile. I have declared a boundary condition on the area between the inner and… (Show more)
