This is for my thesis so would appreciate all the help I can get. I'm trying to assess the impact that various types of guide vanes have on the internal flow of what is essentially a Francis turbine. I have the flow entering and exiting the turbine and behaving as expected

I've read that it is not possible to impart a simulated spin or movement to a part or an assembly being put through a simulated wind tunnel testing scenario within SolidWorks. I don't know if this is true across the board with all versions of SolidWorks or if it only applies to my older version of SolidWorks. If this is true, are therework-aroundsthat any of you more experienced SolidWorks users have developed?

I've noticed my cut-plots have limited boundaries, which seem to be constrained by the rotating region. How can I obtain continuous pressure contours throughout my computational domain? Is there any secret option I have missed?

I am trying to design a pipe system with a pressure drop of less than 10 bar. The pump output pressure is 110bar, the output pressure is expected to be at least 100bar. However, when I try internal flow simulation and external flow simulation with the same boundary conditions applied, the results are totally different as shown below.

I have simulation of parabolic dish solar collector, the simulation is completed but the results not loaded. the program appeared later content of it ( solidworks is out of memory! solidworks is now terminating). How solve this problem? Actually your memory was low, you should the capacity of ram.

I am new to using SolidWorks Flow Simulation. I am trying to run a simple laminar flow over a flat plate with constant heat flux analysis. I used SDC "An Introduction to SolidWorks Flow Simulation" (Chapter 2 Flat Plate Boundary Layer) as a guide however I tried to add a constant heat flux (q" = 5e+015 W/m^2) at a certain location (Image 2 between 10 and 10.01mm) but when I run my analysis the Temperature plot that is created does not seem correct(Image 1). I believe my issue lies in defining my

porous media velocity results How does Flow Simulation calculate the average velocity on the surface of porous media? If I look at a contour or isoline plot of velocity on the surface, the result values make sense.

I have made numerous attempts to resolve this issue with SW 2016 SP4.0 flow simulation. Every time I attempt to run a simulation, I get this message : 'monitor lost connection with solver'.

Hello, I'm trying to do a flow analysis on a direct fire vegetable oil heater, but I'm getting wrong results, so I'm assuming I'm missing something. As Initial condition I just increased temperature at 330F, keeping pressure at ambient.

For example: I have set a goal "mass air flow" , now from that goal i want to take the numbers/results and pull an average out of them but only for the results of the first 0.5 seconds out of the whole 2 seconds that my time dependent flow simulation lasts, and set that average as a goal so i can do otimization based on it. Is this possible by using a custom goal? Haven't used that option at all. Using sw 2016.

I am modeling an aerator with the free surface feature. I set the overall domain to water and because I don't have a fixed volume of air I set a mass flow inlet of air to a lid placed at the inlet to the aerator. The simulation and mesh start up but then fail with "Solver abnormally terminated" but with no warnings in less than 100 iterations.

Hello all I am currently working on a solar panel cleaning system , where in real time i need to input the Water to the solar panel surface using a pump with 6psi Pressure where the panel is at an angle of 12 degrees from the ground Plane, After giving the input The Gravity Have to do the Rest Because of inclination of the Surface in Theoretical i need to Do this using VOF model but When i am trying to Solve the Problem the Flow is not Generating As expected Can any one Have any Idea How to deal

Solar chimney simulation I'm currently doing a project on solar chimney and how they can be used in a house. i chose to do the simulation on solidworks but i'm having some trouble setting up the boundary conditions properly. At first i used environmental pressure at all openings but this is creating a vortex and the results doesn't appear to be good.
