I have the simulation set up as an external analysis. The inlet boundary condition is on the nozzle with a volume flow rate of 50 gpm, I am using the pre-defined "slurry" as the material and have gravity turned on. The results show the flow coming out of the nozzle and not hitting the pan surface as it should.

I'm trying to run 2015 SP 0 on a new WIndows10 workstation. Is there an issue with this older SP? I'm out of maintenance and can't download anything newer.

Results have changed since last session I have developed a whole collection of results for different configurations of an assembly in Flow SSimulation Upon opening up Solidworks in a new session and loading those results, temperatures are now 100 degrees or more higher. I have not re-solved those configurations.

I have a time-dependent simulation of a propeller (sliding mesh) operating in a non-uniform inflow. I would like to extract XY plots of pressure vs. Y on the blade surface at multiple radii for each time step (I have solution outputs at 360 time steps). Other than manually loading each of the 360 solutions and exporting the plot data, what are my options?

Is this a bug in flow simulation? I noticed this issue in 2015 SP4 and upgraded to 2016 SP4 and this version still has the same issue. I really don't get it. Any help would be appreciated!

I am running solidworks flow simulation 2017 on an electronic enclosure, and the fluid volume recognition failed. I used the check geometry tool, and got a list of invalid contacts, mostly faces overlapping, body duplication, and zero thickness vertex

using an assembly to run flow simulation, but also continuing to conduct design work on parts. is there a way to separate the functions with the same assembly, so that it does not try to start the thermal when the assembly is opened? Thank you, James. I took a look through options and didn't find the command.

I'm struggling to create a boundary condition into a part I have created. I keep getting the message: Face is not laying on the boundary between solid and fluid region. run check geometry.

I am running transient simulations on an intake surge tank. This tank will go inline with a mass flow meter on the inlet side, and the outlet side connected to a throttle body. The goal is to minimize the pulsations so i can get a steady reading on the flow meter.

I've made a model of a parabolic mirror and a receiver located at the focal point, to simulate radiation concentration on the receiver. i've defined these conditions: * in "general settings", solar radiation direction along the axis of symmetry of the parabolic mirror (0,-1,0), intensity:1000W/m^2

I am simulating the flow around a vessel that incorporates a non-detachable trailer with extendable floats. Also, the wheels and suspension will remain in the water. I am looking to quantify the drag created by this moving through the water. Everything has been going great but I am running into one issue that I cannot seem to fix.

The task is to simulate the thermal situation of an industrial camera with flow simulation 2018. At the moment I´m not really sure if i need radiation in my simulation. In most of the turorial they say if the temperature is not realy high I can ignore the radiation. My first simple calculation and simulations are showing someting different.

Thank youJanko Stellaard, This seems like a good idea! I tried to do that, but I can't find where to define the time period. I defined the wind speed to change in X and Y direction using a 3d vector with time dependency, so that it should go 360 second for 360 degrees but the analysis keeps ending after 0.4 seconds.

I am trying to simulate an industrial factory with heat sources however i cannot get the correct results. I keep on receiving ridiculous values from the solver. My input is 38.9 degrees into the roller shutter, thats my boundary condition.

I have a need to simulate a heating element inside of an airtight enclosure. The objective is to measure the internal air temperature at a certain location after a certain time. As far as I understand, the thermal study tool in simulation professional does not allow a user to do this sort of measurement.

Hi there I have an idea for a new Feature/or update an old one. Unfortunately I do not know where to send this, maybe somebody will see this: This way it should reduce the time needed for a parametric study and when started you are confident that it will finish without errors.

Hi! Sorry for ignorance of the language, I will try to learn;)Torque = 0 for RPM. At the torque = 0 it is necessary to find the hydro turbines RPM.

I'm doing a simple Flow Simulation of a rotating fan propeller. So I set up my rotating reference frame (Averaging) and define an angular velocity. It's an internal analysis so I define the computational domain, the environmental pressure, the outlet static pressure as well as an Inlet air velocity.

I have been using SW Flow for about 3 months for my thesis. I am wondering if there is a way to input residual value like other softwares e.g ANSYS for convergence using for validation. You can't input a dimensionless numerical residual, but we can stillmanuallyoverride the convergence tolerance using the convergence criteriavalueorpercentagewhich is effectively the same thing.

As the title states I'm having problems generating flow trajectories for my end plate design. Earlier versions of the end plate did not give me any problems, however, I've modified them and increased their complexity. Now, whenever I try to include their surfaces in generating the flow trajectories Solidworks either refuses or just plain crashes on me. This is an awful shame because I am specifically trying to analyze the new area I have added to them.
