In honor of America’s Independence Day, we decided to simulate an aerial fireworks display in SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation. We wondered just how closely we could recreate the effect, and we also had a few specific questions to answer; such as how much the wind will move the shell off course, and what impact the angle of the tube will have on the final trajectory. We’ll use this information to plan a big fireworks display in SOLIDWORKS and in the back yard.

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.

A nova versão do SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation 2017 contém diversas melhorias requisitadas pelos usuários que tornaram ainda mais fácil e rápido determinar o impacto de um fluxo de líquido ou gás no projeto do seu produto durante a fase de projeto – muito antes de os protótipos físicos serem criados. A percepção adquirida com esses estudos de dinâmica de fluido computacional (CFD) fornece uma visão que pode ajudá-lo a identificar problemas mais cedo para que você possa solucioná-los mais
