Frequency Study I have been tasked with trying to design a plastic welding horn for a 20KHz ultrasonic welder. This involves a lot of black magic as near as I can tell.

I realized that making a bonded contact between non-touching faces or edge using the 3 following techniques could produce wrong result : All those techniques could produce wrong result because the relation written between distant sets is false. This relation is displacement equality and rotation equality between the nodes or elements in the sets.

Can a solidworks standard 2017 perform analysis of rotational force applied on a flywheel model? Not used it but I'd have thought the centrifugal load would be relevant to you:

i am in constrution of a complex fluid flow system which is having own designed rotary valves to dynamically switch fluid between pipes (this effect leads to the alternating flow over time on the left side of the attached picture). In the real system there will be a part, where fluid flow is bidirectional over time (middle part in the picture). To allow this, the part has 4 connectors - two inlets, two outlets. To define those, in the real system they will be equipped with check valves (see

I am using flow simulation to do the air flow outside a PC Fan, but i had two problems 1. First problem is about the rotating region, when i change the rotation speed from 2000RPM to -2000RPM, the direction of the arrow should change from Y to -Y, but in my solidworks it doesn't change.

olá sou estudante de engenharia de petróleo, estou desenvolvendo o meu TCC, o tema, como determinar a estrutura dos dados em simulação..ao longo das minhas pesquisas..descobrir...que as Funções...F(x) = Ax² + Bx - C...é usado nas tensões aplicadas nas peças ... Ax² - área onde é aplicada as tensões...e Bx - elasticidade

I'm trying to apply a radial like load to a split line in the middle of a hollow shaft, when i select the split line the directional arrows appear as a torque like force? Any ideas? I'm thinking of maybe making a thin cylindrical face at the split line and use it instead

I'm trying to optimize a holder for heavy steel tubes. See if it can handle the weight. now I've modeled a holder and the tube (as a remote mass) and runned the simulation. It occurred to me that it shows no stress at some places where you'd expect it to be. now I'm thinking that I did something wrong with the remote mass. does anyone know what might be wrong it the simulation?

I am currently working on a university assignment that involves doing a motion analysis on a Whitworth quick return mechanism that is used in a shaping machine, I have done mathematical analysis in order to obtain plots of the reciprocating rams displacement, velocity and acceleration, now I am looking to verify these results with a SolidWorks motion analysis study. I have created the simplified model pictured below and set up a motion analysis study in order to drive the system at a constant

Hello, im trying to do static simulation on a simplified model of an engine. After many hours spent trying to set everything up and failing again and again i finally understood that i need some help from more experienced users : Could you tell me what kind of connections and fixtures i need to make this model properly(realisticly) distribute applied pressure ?

If I apply a force on a certain known shape and material, from the displacement results on the static analysis, is it possible to find the stiffness of the material? (Assuming linear force-displacement relationship) Or is this a wrong method? stiffness of the construction is the force divided by the displacement

I need some help setting up an FEA simulation. I have a tube with an internal edge that we want to simulate the stress on as it moves through a bending fixture with different edge radii. I have tried to do this using the motion works, but the tube just pierces the fixture. The the most success I have had is using a static FEA with an applied for to the force to the tip and a fixed proximal end.

Supersonic Channel Flow I have been doing a number of supersonic calculations establishing supersonic flow by simulating our wind tunnel C-D nozzle. Now I tried to do a simple supersonic square channel flow by specifying a supersonic inflow boundary condition based on our wind tunnel nozzle outflow conditions.
