Thread simulation Hi, i have tried to make an accurate Nonlinear-Static thread (M12x1,75) simulation: the Torque-Load has always only max. 4% different to the analitical calculation,

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'm running a motion analysis to determine the force a linear motor would need to output to open a hatch (axis of rotation is horizontal). I'm happy with most of my results except for the very beginning of my simulation when the actuator starts pushing. I get a huge spike in the output force! I've seen this is a few other peoples results browsing around.

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?

Nonlinear analysis running slowly with direct sparse solver I've been working on a nonlinear analysis that's proven to be more frustrating that I anticipated. I had a linear static analysis of the same model completing within about 3 minutes for some deflection information.

The section of pipe is modeled in Caesar II and the forces from this I want to input in Solidworks and do an analysis to see what will happen to the pipe and the small stubs. My question is how do I fix the pipe correctly to model it? The pipe is connected to other pipes on both ends. I am only concerned with this section of pipe.

Prescribed Displacement With Internal Reaction Forces I'm trying to analyze some components of a hydraulic lift table. I'm in the process of running a nonlinear assembly analysis with a prescribed displacement.

I'm on about my 6th SW animation and still struggling with the random events that unexpectedly occur. I'm on 2009 and 2010 with the latest service packs with a SW certified graphics card, ample ram. The main issue I am struggling with currently is that I have a part defined by two coincident mates and a limit distance mate that I want to animate linear motion between the limits.

The company I work for fabricates weldments that are suspended from an overhead system via four somewhat long bolts. In the real world, the overhead systems will allow quite a lot of translations and rotations at the bolted connections, although Z translation (vertical) is for the most part limited. This is somewhat similar to a piece of equipment mounted to four casters. See picture below.

I wonder if anybody had this kind of error during dynamic simulation? This is an error that is typical if 'Damping' has not been defined within a dynamic analysis. Have you edit the "Damping" item in the simulation boundary tree and defined it with damping properties?

Hello, I have a problem with animation. I have designed a cycloid gear, then assembled it, but sometimes the movement works okay, and sometimes not. Sometimes the cycloid just interferences with rolles, and sometimes it just works as it should. Could someone check the model, and tell me what's wrong?

We have seen this on several computers on campus where once we manually install Solidworks Education Edition 2017-2018, the CFD tools are disabled. Has anyone experienced this and know how to enable it? Thank you.

There does not seem to be a way to plot applied force. Am I missing something? I know I can check reactions, but it would be great to display a color plot or XY plot of the parabolic distribution I (hopefully) set up.

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'm modelling a 4 bar linkage and am trying to optimize the design based on the angular displacement of the red link. This optimization is being done through the use of a design study, which uses motion analysis sensors as goals. When looking at the results from the motion study, sensible values for the link angular displacement are obtained.
