i need to simulate some inlet geometries designed as different diffusors. The water flow stream will then impinge on a stack of plates, which will be 300um thick and also with a 300um spacing between them. In order to check these inlet geometries and flow distribution on the flow channels i will first need to do only stationary flow simulation without any heat transferring, just flow. In addition, i will be in very laminar flow range about reynolds numbers of ~50 to 200.

I recently just started looking over some API examples for SwMotionStudy.MotionStudy but I have yet to see anything involving editing specific explode steps from an automatically generated explode animation in a Motion study. Has anyone attempted this?Keith Rice?Deepak Gupta?

Hi I'm a starter on simulation and I'm sorry if my question may be repeated in other posts. I was working on an analysis for a lever, having major thickness of 4.92mm, with fillets of 0.3mm radius on all edges, and:

I need to use sewage water as fluid in flow simulation. how can i do that if it's possible. I have few details like sludge consistency is about 5%. and Specific Gravity is 1.03.

I am simulating a facade panel from a building, the material is Glass Reinforced Concrete (GRC). I have to simulate with the thermal contraction and the wind pressure applied in the front face of the panel. The panel is fixed to the brick wall using some steel brackets, which are bonded to the GRC panel.

Having only really use the basic simulation express somewhat, I am now looking to use the SW Simulation in the SW Premium 2018 version. I have got my head around it to get some answers I need but I need more information to be totally confident with my results.

I would like to set a particular face in my part to be rigid in the simulation. I am basically doing a tensile stiffness test; I have fixed one end of a part and applied a load to the other end. I want to know the displacement of the loaded end, but the face is not rigid so the result is a kind of dome-ed geometry.

Simulation Report Comments Overwritten When setting up the report in Solidworks Simulation any comments, description, or assumptions that I enter are not saved to the study. If I make a change to the study and re-publish the report these fields are always empty.

Flexible resin joint simulation I am simulating a concrete panel of a building that is exposed to wind load and the proper weight. The panel is fixed to the wall with some steel brackets, the steel brackets are bonded to the panels as showed in the picture below.

I am currently trying to run a wind analyse and to import the data into simulation environment. What goals shall I predefine? In general, how critical is it to define correct goal in CFD and does it impact the simulation results enormously?

Hello my name is Mael and i need to use flow simulation for a Highschool project which contributes to my degree. So I have a problem with Flow simulation, Indeed, I created a fan and I would like to simulate the flow of the Air coming through the fan. Now, whenever I increase the speed of the rotating region, the flow of the Air doesn't change at all. That doesn't seem correct to me, If someone could help me please.

I am trying to study the relation between modulus of elasticity and the stress. Two models are prepared one simply supported beam and another one is cantilever beam. Result for simply supported beam shows that as the Modulus of elasticity increases the stress also increases, But for cantilever beam no change in stress occur. Why the results differ and what is correct co-relation between them?

Hi Everyone, We have to work on a project at Uni in which we have to design then build a structure that can support an 18 kg of a rectengular metal block and it has to have a gap underneath it as well (175mm). The structure itself has to be as light as possible and it can be made only out of 3 mm thick plywood that the university provides.

I am analyzing flow pattern of liquid in a large a tank. There is one entry (volume flow rate) and one exit (atmospheric opening). Practically there is always air at top of tank, but Flow simulation fills the tank fully with water. I have tried a method of fluid sub-domain, but I think it is not a correct method.

I am currently designing a swimming mechanism and need to analyze its movement and its interaction with fluids. Is solidworks capable of performing simulations where a mechanism is moving within a fluid and gives you results for the flow in terms of vortex formations, etc? Some improvement in 2018 release with free surface simulation in Flow Sim module could have been a positive sign for you, however, it is not to the point to provide you with other complex phenomena such as sloshing effect etc.
