Click to view contentI'm trying to model water flow from a water pipe drilled with holes (represented by thing (or outlet) above the panel and the flow is defined there) onto a solar panel. I've also defined a heat source on the panel surface (assuming all of the losses turn to heat). The parameters i want to get is just avg, max, min temperature of the panel. Weird… (Show more)

I have specified material for parts inside an assembly in feature manager design tree. So do I need to specify material for respective parts in insert solid materials icon in flow simulation again ?? Someone please help in this

Hello,   Over the last few months we have built two new workstations, one with a Intel 9900K, and the other with a AMD 3900x.  We have made a report (see attached) that details our findings when solving Flow simulation files on these systems.  Puget Systems also did testing with these two processors as… (Show more)

Click to view contentI am attempting to run a flow simulation on an airfoil using solidworks flow simulation. The following mesh was generated by solidworks.     Is this mesh covering the entire airfoil? I am not sure if it is only going to simulate flow along the x,y, and z axis instead of through the entire computational domain. Any help would be greatly… (Show more)

I have two solid bodies in an assembly which are placed closed to each other in which one body is acting as volume heat source maintained at high temperature at around 130 C and other body is at initial temperature of around 40 C. So there will be heat transfer between two bodies and temperature of second body  will rise. I want find at what… (Show more)

I need to generate a mesh from a steady-state simulation, then use that mesh for a transient study.  How can I do this?  I have successfully used the Transferred Boundary Condition under General Settings, but all this does is load the flow field - the mesh from the steady-state study with the local refinements does not get loaded (it should have… (Show more)

If we turn on flow freezing to speed up calculations, simulation results obtained will be correct or not ( especially for physical time ) ? I have this query because when I try activating flow freezing it is taking high time steps and actual physical time obtained is more than 30000s which is impractical. But when I try without flow freezing, it… (Show more)

Click to view contentI'm trying to model water flow onto a solar panel (via water outlets)(pic attached in post, the 8 things above the panel are the water outlets) and analyse its cooling effects. This is an external flow, and i understand to have stuff flow, i need to have lids and assign boundary conditions to them. Is this correct? Do i have to model the body of… (Show more)

I'm trying to simulate flow that goes through a nozzle and onto a surface and I'm having trouble figuring out how to do it.  I need the the flow to start at the inlet of the nozzle, exit the outlet, then hit the surface.  I have successfully gotten the flow to go through the nozzle but It stops at the outlet of the nozzle each time.  How do I make… (Show more)

Click to view contentHello,   I have been working with a basic gas turbine engine (ignoring the fuel for now) and added these orifice plates around the flame can, to help even out the flow.  However, these plates should create a huge pressure drop (~2psi) that doesn't seem to be showing up.  Instead Solidworks tells me the pressure drop is .1psi. I have an inlet… (Show more)
