I have a heat exchanger that I'm running simulations for but I'm getting something weird that I haven't seen before. I'm getting negative temperatures when I specifically made my liquid fluid subdomain at 293 K and my steam subdomain at 403 K. Everything in my mind looks good until I load results and see all the temperatures showing 1.46e+14 and… (Show more)

Click to view contentIs it possible to simulate wind turbine flow correctly with solidworks? I managed to somehow get reasonable results by using static wind turbine. Then I used "wall motion" and got somehow questionable results. But I assume motion of the propeller needs to be taken into account. So if I add motion the speed of the blade tip is faster then the… (Show more)

I am performing a parametric study on a wing.   On Solidworks, I see there is an ability to create a parametric study.  What's the best way to conduct a parametric study, making sure that meshing doesn't affect quality?   If I optimize a mesh for a "default" state, the mesh for other configurations would be affected.   Also, how can I determine… (Show more)

So I got an idea to implement in solidworks on how to quicly view section cuts...   1. make predefined quick section type 2. press and hold assigned keyboard button 3. full section cut at mouse pointer normal to view. optionally section only area in circle or square of predefined size at pointer. 4. move section depth with wheel button 5. on… (Show more)

Good afternoon fellow Flowheads,   I've been using Flowsim 2012 at home since 2012 to investigate flow over a subsonic aircraft. I was told many years ago that the drag and lift for separated flow at a low separation angle, say 3- 15 degrees, was not accurate because of the internal modeling of the separation.   I know, from wind tunnel testing… (Show more)

Click to view contentI am try to simulate a rotating cylinder the is being heated by an electric heater covering half of the cylinder.  I've tried the averaging mesh and sliding meshing with the rotating body but neither seem to work.  The mesh appears to move in the flow simulation tracking window but only one side of the cylinder gets hot.  Any suggestions?  Is… (Show more)

Best regards Someone will have some table of manning roughness expressed in micrometers to introduce to the solidworks flow simulation. Thank you

I'm trying to do parametric studies, by varying the dimension of my object. I have set the dimension using global variables, but when I'm trying to add the global variables as a parameter for the analysis, only a few of the global variables that I created show up in the list to select.    I'm wondering why some of the other global variables I… (Show more)
