Click to view contentHello all, I am working on a static wind load study and am running into a few problems. The antenna shown below is experiencing wind speeds of 135 mph, and a cumulative corresponding normal force (perpendicular to the white radomes) of 270 lbf. To greatly simplify the FEA for my simulation, I eliminated all components hanging off the antenna pole… (Show more)

Click to view contentI don't understand how convergence criterion works. In the case pictured - the criterion is set manually to 0.5 m/s velocity and 0.5 kg/s mass flow. What are these numbers measured against? I would assume that they are compared to a delta-value taken from an iteration interval of a certain length. Do I need to specify that interval somewhere? (As… (Show more)

Click to view contentI try to run a simple static simulation. I usually have to re-mesh. Then sometimes it works, most times I get the message below. Today, I did a force study on a pipe and it ran fine, the I did an FOS study and got results. I then added 0.007” to the wall thickness and re-ran and it doesn’t complete. I usually get the message below.   I've… (Show more)

Click to view contentHello, Please let me know the possibility to calculate below requirement using SW simulation premium. This is a draft of a mold. I needed to calculate the clamping force F when the rubber strip temperature reached to 150°C. Bottom mold part fixed. Room temperature = 30°C Materials are selected in the attached 3D.   Thank you. Manupriya.

I have created a system that replicates the air flow capacity of the fan I am thinking about using. My problem is I don't know what the static pressure drop across the system is. Is there a way to find this out either mathematically or on SolidWorks Flow Simulation.   As we know static pressure is the pressure that causes the air to push if there… (Show more)

I ran simulation one or twice today, simple static. Now, I try a new identical study and it tells me:  the requested quantity cannot be found in the result file and the study doesn't run. I've deleted all my study files, that worked once. Now I cant get it to run, Ideas? I'm in 2019 Im trying to learn this and its been 30 yrs since I've been in… (Show more)

Hello!   Is anybody able to tell me what this message means in my study? I have found it that the max Jaobian number on mesh quality plot is 25ish which I think it is still acceptable (lower than 40). Even if I refine the mesh localy and knock the Jacobian down to 15 the message appears too. I have got in mesh creation setting Jacobian set to be… (Show more)

(contacts, bolts, etc from assembly file to another? Or to merge two assembly files with different studies and then copy over the features?

Click to view contentHi everyone,   it there a way to switch back from shell to solid elements w/o creating a new simulation? Let me explain: in my last simulation I had to investigate a stack of sheets and, in order to reduce the # of elements, I have defined the sheets as shell elements. After I realized that because of some particular constraints I wasn't able to… (Show more)

I have been reading through the Flow Simulation Technical Reference and found a series of equations to calculate the pressure drop. I have found two (2) equations that are quite useful (for anyone interested they are on page 45), however, one of the math functions used I have not seen before. I was hoping someone could explain it to me.   The… (Show more)
