Hello, I am new to CFD and I am trying to simulate the fluid flow for a fan in a blender. I have attached pictures of the models and the rotating region. I am not able go through the meshing for a finer mesh. For a coarser mesh (Global mesh level 3), its going through.

So I was going to include a few fans in a flow simulation and the warning written in the title appeared. I tried to troubleshoot by only simulating a free fan in an empty domain, which still gave me the same warning. Now I need some help with how to resolve this.

I want to run my CFD parametric study , i want to add more cores to decrease the simulation time, is it possible? Yes, you can install a remote solver onto other machines and use them to solve your Flow Projects. This is how you go about doing the setup (GoEngineer - Flow Simulation: Remote Solver).

I'm having trouble with a 2D sliding mesh simulation of a vertical-axis wind turbine. I'd like to calculate the torque on the turbine over one revolution. For some reason, SWFS will not run if I refine the grid around the blades too much. So I slightly refine the grid and then run SWFS overnight, letting it refine in its own.

I'm trying to run a simple simulation of a 2d vertical-axis wind turbine. I've defined the rotating region with a hollow cylinder surrounding the turbine blades. However, when I run the simulation there's no rotation and I never see the blades move. I have a feeling I'm missing something obvious here, but I've gone through all the documentation I can find multiple times and I still can't figure out the problem.

Recently I wanted to try simulating an Evaporator to cool Air to make sure the heat exchanger is capable of such cooling capacity (about 350,000 Btu/hr and chilling air from 50 C to 5 C). Can solidworks flow simulation simulate the refrigerant after a thermal expansion valve? I have tried running sim with Air (gas) and Refrigerant (fluid) and realised that the refrigerant inlet can only configure fluid temperature and not pressure. Additionally, can solidworks simulate phase change of the

I'm trying to run a time-accurate 2D simulation of a simple vertical-axis Darrieus-type wind turbine consisting of 4 NACA0018 airfoils. It's operating in a low speed (Vx =1.4 m/s) environment, rotating at 347 RPM. I would like to calculate the torque on the turbine. I think it's a fairly simple case, but when I run the velocities climb as high as 1500 m/s and the solver abnormally terminates.

Bonjour, je suis élève de terminale S option science de l’ingénierieet afin de pouvoir finir mon projet de SI j'ai reçu une licence gratuite d'un an depuis chez moi , néanmoins je remarque que je n'ai pas accès a Flow simulation , étant donné que mon projet est basé sur l’aérodynamisme de l'aileron de voiture alors ce logiciel m’ait indispensable . Merci de bien vouloir me guider afin d'obtenir Flow simulation sur ma version (2017-2018) afin de pouvoir finaliser mon projet de SI.

I inserted a preview of pressure and temperature while solver is running, the problem is on display, in fact, the scale in the preview shows high values of temperature and pressure even if these values are not reached . Anyone knows why? just adjust the scale.

Im working on a project in which i'm designing a tent with a inflatable frame. I can't find a way to make a realistic simulation of the windflow while taking the internal pressure forces in account. In the picture you can see a first drawing of the frame.

I'm a 15+ years SW users and recently upgraded to flow simulation. I have a case study around cooling of electronics in an enclosure. The goal is increase density of chips inside the enclosure (finding out the maximum number of chips I can fit in a given side chassis).

I would like to ask is there a way to do simulation on whether a pipe can withstand a certain pressure? As I want to decide which pipe diameter I should use, and the pipe diameter depends on the pressure.

When moving from an old (2015) to a newer version (2017) of SW and Flow Simulation, the old projects will open, but will not recognized the materials in the new database. I had saved the old materials and imported them into the new database. SW will ask if the materials from the project should be added to the database. After agreeing to add, I find the imported materials in a subfolder under the User Defined Solids.

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?
