Click to view contentWhen simulating the flow of liquid in a vertical sewer pipe, Solidworks shows that the pipe is completely filled with liquid, although in reality a gravity-film is formed and water flows down the pipe wall, and there is no liquid in the center of the pipe. Is it possible to somehow simulate a "real" process. Required for heat transfer analysis of… (Show more)

I'm running a liquid thermal analysis with 3 inlets and 3 outlets. All 3 inlets merge to form one flow path, with a desired flow rate of 1.5 GPM.   My question is: If I select all three inlet faces and set a flow rate of 1.5 GPM, will each individual inlet have 1.5 GPM, or would they be split up evenly, so each inlet has a flow rate of .5 GPM?  … (Show more)

I want to know if SW Flow simulation can give data output of the resistance in Newton, once an analysis has been concluded. A boat hull in the water moves at 20 knots. I need to know the resistance created by this boat hull in the water at 20 knots.  Can SW flow simulation give you this data in a report format?  for example: 10 knots > 100… (Show more)

Is there a way I can get this sort of view in Solidworks 2019? It's a flow simulation cut plot I believe from a previous version of solidworks. I can't seem to get a clear enough fluid trajectory view in 2019

I'm trying to graph the average shear stress in a smooth line as shown in the left graph in the image, but the graph needs to be shear stress x distance, not iterations, like the graph on the right in the image. How do I average the data to get a smoother graph?   I think there are some things I'm not understanding about how solidworks performs… (Show more)

Click to view contentHi, I am currently undertaking Flow Simulation analysis of a Hydrostatic Bearing for my Honours Degree Project. This is my first time using the software and I am having a few issues with the simulation that I cannot seem to solve.   1. When running the simulation, a message appears stating negative pressure. I have checked the figures and… (Show more)

Hey guys   I got some problems analysing my FlowSimulation results. I got a metal box. This box is in a fluid region (air). In the box i got some dummy heat sources. Cause i need to know how much heat is beeing emitted to the external fluid, its an external analysis. Its easy to get these results with surface parameters. But i also need to… (Show more)

Click to view contentI am trying to model air as it compresses (compression stroke) in a sidevalve engine.  The area of most interest is the last 15 degrees of crankshaft rotation before the piston reaches top dead center (TDC).  That 15 degrees of crankshaft rotation translates to 0.110 inch of  piston linear motion.  At the engine rpm of interest (5142), the piston… (Show more)

Hello everyone I am simulating a wind turbine using SolidWorks Flow Simulation at certain wind speeds and wanted to find the value of moment to find Power. I wanted to know the direction of moment (surface goals in x,y,z direction) acting on the turbine if the air is coming from z direction. Please help!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have a simulation with many components that i want to save cut plots of. I set them to save every 200 iterations but want to change them all to save every 100 iterations. it takes a long time to change them. so i'm wondering if i can edit the saved layout file, but i don't know where it is stored. thanks
