I am designing a electrical contact spring. And also comparing it with actual result from testing Setup. From simulation i am getting Resultant force as 1.4 N and from actual testing of same Contact spring with measuring device i got the 0.8 N. Can anyone explain why is the difference so much ?

I'm trying to make some simulations of a rather simple part under static compression. The part is shown below. To make this simulation as simple as possible I have isolated the part (no assembly) and even removed features that would make things more complicated. I just want to see purely how much this part will deform under a given loading condition.

I'm fairly new to SolidWorks Simulation Flow. I'm having trouble trying to put together a simulation flow through my heat sink using DC blower fans. I can't properly set up lids to do a boundary property with the inflow of the DC flowers and then properly set the out flow.

I am trying to run a flow simulation in a strainer, to find out the pressure drop in the basket strainer. I have applied the boundary condition and trying to solve it but the pressure plot is giving me a strange result.

Update simulation parameters from external source My simulation model is just an step in a complex simulation workflow involving other software. Therefore, I need to run the simulation studies using model parameters (e.g. force values) generated in the previous step of the simulation workflow.

Connector forces calculation Applied only axial load of 3000 lbf on bolt connector. why connector forces show shear and bending too? How solidworks calculate shear and bending moment?

I'm trying to do a structural analasis on a 3 d printed cast from a company called ActivArmor. The cast shape is very organic looking and because of that the STL file I was given is made up of thousands of triangles. I have left the simulation running for days and it cannot compute the mesh in that amount of time. Has anyone else been able to run simulations on complicated models made of thousands of faces?

I am running SW2018 and I am trying to run a simple simulation. But I have a question about bolt connections. I have a simple assembly with a C profile bracket and a pipe that goes between the flanges and they have holes that are aligned to be bolted or to put a pin (refer screenshots).

I have a task where I must simulate two plates held together with a countersunk bolt under a shear load. I need to compare two scenarios, one where the bolt is properly tensioned/pre-loaded and another where it is not pre-loaded and will fail due to fatigue. To start I am using the SW connector bolts and I am able to run the static simulations fine.

When using an edgeweld connector if have to make a choice for "Material of weaker joined part" which defines the parts with the lowest tensile strength. BUt what do i have to do when both parts are made of the same material?

I'm trying to model a balloon launch with temperature changes with time as it rises. The current simulation with the payload box entirely closed shows the battery getting too hot, so we definitely need a slotted hole for extra convection near the battery to better cool it down, but I don't know how to model that. I've tried adding a convection value along the sides of the slot or on top of the battery but that just gives unreal values, such as 20000°C battery.
