Let’s find out the optimal forward lean angle for a Ski jumper in SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation to help him get the longest jump in his life! In this article we will try to determine the value of a lift force as a function of a forward lean angle (FLA) of Ski jumper. To find this characteristic, we tested four different body position.

In the Fall and Winter of 1901, Orville and Wilbur Wright completed the most comprehensive study of airfoils to-date in their experimental wind tunnel in Dayton, Ohio. They crafted a series of parametric experiments to explore the relationship between wing shape and aerodynamic performance. Specifically, they investigated 2D airfoil characteristics of camber (curvature) and thickness, as well as 3D wing parameters like planform aspect ratio and shape.

SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation offers some great tools for analyzing rotating region problems. There are a lot of capabilities within the tool but, often times, there isn’t a lot of information about these capabilities. This article is meant to be a comprehensive guide to everything related to rotating region problems within SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation. This will include explaining the different types of rotating region problems as well as the best practices associated with each one of them.

In diesem aufgezeichneten Webcast zum Thema “Analyse rotierender Maschinen mit SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation” zeigen wir Ihnen anhand einer Wasserpumpe in 22 Minuten, wie einfach es ist in SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation Analysen aufzusetzen und mithilfe von Parameterstudien physikalische Testreihen schon virtuell in der frühen Entwicklungsphase zu überprüfen. Weiter werden wir noch auf ein paar strukturelle Analysen eingehen, die Sie, wenn Sie rotierende Komponenten verwenden, beachten sollten.

In this blog I will be utilizing the amazing SOLIDWORKS Flow simulation CFD (computational fluid dynamics) tool to find out what motor specs I would need to get my RC Helicopter airborne. The Flow Simulation tool is built into the software interface directly, so there is no time wasted exporting or importing your model. This also means that design changes can be easily and efficiently implemented and tested.

Ingenieure und Mathematiker versuchen bereits seit Jahrzehnten, das Verständnis und die Voraussage der Phänomene Strömungsmechanik und Wärmeübertragung mithilfe der numerischen Strömungsmechanik (CFD) zu verbessern. Das Ziel dabei ist klar: Die Konstruktion von Produkten und die Prozesse, bei denen Fluidströmungen beteiligt sind, sollen bei gleichzeitiger Reduzierung von Aufwand, Zeit und Kosten optimiert werden. Doch erst in den letzten zehn Jahren hat sich CFD im Industriedesign durchgesetzt,

SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation is an extraordinarily powerful program. Fire tornadoes, cold beers by the grill, supersonic jets or even dragons can be analyzed in Flow Simulation with amazing results. You may have seen some of these examples before but did you know the setup for these kinds of studies is actually really simple? It is as easy as 1-2-3, what is happening, what do you know, and what do you want to know?

Lange neigte man in der Produktentwicklung dazu, „zur Sicherheit“ alles einfach etwas kräftiger zu dimensionieren.Dem stehen heute mehrere Argumente entgegen: Je enger die Bauräume werden, desto weniger Platz bleibt für Überdimensionierung. Zudem ist Überdimensionierung eine Verschwendung – sowohl aus betriebswirtschaftlichen wie auch aus umwelttechnischen Gesichtspunkten. Der Konstrukteur muss also immer mehr an die Grenzen des Materials gehen, zudem sorgt die zunehmende Miniaturisierung dafür,

Engineering Fluid Dynamics (EFD) ist eine CFD-Software (Computational Fluid Dynamics), die es Maschinenbauingenieuren mithilfe von leistungsstarken, intuitiven und verfügbaren 3D-Tools ermöglicht, die Fluidströmung und Wärmeübertragung für ihre Anwendungen zu simulieren. EFD richtet sich nach den Kriterien und Zielen der Konstruktion. Jeder Produktentwickler hat Zugriff auf die technischen Informationen, die er zur Lösung von während des Produktentwicklungsprozesses entstehenden Fragen benötigt.

SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation has been enhanced in 2016 to help us generate an optimal mesh even easier and better than before — specifically with new ways to approach local refinement and mesh plotting. My favorite enhancement is definitely the Equidistant Refinement local mesh type. If you have 6 minutes, check out the video version of this blog here.

SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation is great at modeling the physics around us. It’s a tool that we can use to help us make informed design decisions. By running different what-if scenarios, we can figure out the best way to design our products, but it doesn’t have to stop there. The physics don’t stop working because it’s after 5pm or the weekend.
