1. I am using SW Flow Simulation 2016 to investigate heat sink performance and want to create cut plots with the custom parameters Bottleneck number and Shortcut number. My problem is that I cannot find the two parameters in the list as indicated below. I tried to create them as custom parameters in the Engineering Data Base but was not successful in finding the right parameters to use in a function.

I'm working on a new assembly design that needs to be held within a specific temperature window. I would like to determine approximate power loads required to maintain a specific temperature. For confidentiality purposes I can not share the model. Here is a simplified question about my application:

I would like to take a simulation about an enclosure with natrual convection at high altitude, but get confused about the flow simulation setting. should I just change the gravity and pressure at General settings? or I need to build a new flow material which represents the air at high altitude. PS: I got some reference from Flothermo. such software allows user to set more paraments, such as density, expansivity. but I can not find the similar setting in flow simulation.

Hello guys. This is my 1st time using Flow Simulation in Solidworks. I am tasked to simulate a lagoon with different Volume Flow inlets. For example, I've tried putting 300 m^3/s and 3000 m^3/s as the inlet and 101325 Pa Environment Pressure.as the outlet I use global coordinations as the inlet and the outlet reference.

there are parts inside the "tube" used for the computational domain but Solidworks says they are out of the computational domain, and they are not taken into account for the flow simulation Tags: none (add) computational domain

I am new to SolidWorks and want to use it to simulate the flow of Argon gas through an object, which is used for High Harmonic generation with a laser. For that Argon gas is coming directly from a bottle at a pressure of 1.4 bar through a pipe of 2mm internal diameter, which is connected to the central block. The gas enters a first volume in which a small capillary is inserted. The volume on the other side (2) is evacuated with a vacuum pump.

in the image you see my project, wich is a T-micromixer, where a fluid enter one of the inlets and another fluid enters at the other inlet. They mix and exit through the outlet. What you see is a section view of a section from the outlet channel. So my question is how can I see, and export to excel the values of mass fraction of one of the fluids at that secion?

Solidworks flow simulation solver preview Apologies if this is an obvious question, but once a preview of a flow simulation project has been added to the flow simulation solver window, how can it be removed?

Hello, I have to admit that I come from experience of Fluent, and am exploring Flow Simulation to simulate rotating flow for electric machine. What I am trying to run heat transfer conjugated CFD analysis, it is to simulate an electric machine which will be cool down in the room by natural convection. Please take a look at my attached snapshot for your reference.

Hi, I have been using Flow Simulation for a while to investigate wind turbine performances. However as an architect, I am a bit far away to this field. If you just give an advice on the methodology that I am using, it would be wonderful. I am trying to find the angular velocity of a turbine.

Wrong simulation results (Speed problem) I'm working on simulation of air suction through pipes. I encounter some problems with the results of the simulation.

Simulation's results problem I've been working with flowsimulation for some weeks now in order to make a simulation of air suctions through pipes. Thanks to some help on this forum, I'm now able to do that but the results are a bit strange and they don't correspond to what we can find in the the theory. (I'm supposed to obtain concentric spheres for each speed).

Can we solve two different fluids flowing from same inlet at two different mass flow rate. If yes please help me with set up or and work around for these kind of mixing problems. I am not able to define the Fluid sub domain at inlet lid.

I'm trying to run and internal fluid flow analysis and one of my parts has slots wrapped around a cylinder. They also wrap along the top which is like a half dome. I have attached pictures of the original part and my attempt at placing lids. I thought it would work, but during the check geometry I get a ton of zero thickness errors and face intersection errors.
