Log in to follow, share, and participate in this community. Hi, I was wondering if there is an efficient way to determine
the aerodynamic centre of an aircraft. I set up a model of the
aircraft where drag is in the Z direction and lift is in the Y
direction. I set up a grid of... I was trying to use flow simulation and as I press run, it starts to generate mesh but suddenly "Solver abnormally terminated" appears and it happens only for this model because I've tried flow sim for other models bu... I am trying to simulate a bi-plane wing. I did a mesh convergence study with the initial mesh and the force in the X and y-direction for "initial meshes from 1-5" are not converging. Mesh level 6 is ta... Hi, I am attempting to run a flow simulation for a CD nozzle with a pitot tube on the surface of the tunnel at supersonic conditions however the mesh inside the tube will not capture the fluid cells. i have... 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 af... 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 separ... Best regards Someone will have some table of manning roughness expressed in micrometers to introduce to the solidworks flow simulation. Thank you A melt spinning process typically can require quite high pressures to extrude polymer melt of high viscosity through a spinneret. Literature for process I have found seems to show 5k - 10k psi pressure across sp... Hi, I am doing a fluid simulation in Solidworks: Step 1: Inject 30 sccm of Helium into a pipe for 30 minutes Step 2: Inject 20 sccm of Hydrogen and 10 sccm of Methane at the same time into a pip... hi guys im currently doing my level 8 thesis on obtaining accurate figures of lift and drag in solidworks however i am far from it and i only have 3 weeks left to submit my thesis so any helo would be appreciated. i a... I am doing an external heat simulation with a heatsink fan and a led volume source. I am having trouble with the surface plot. When I don't involve the fans the surface plot looks normal with a gradient over the enti... I am new to SolidWorks Flow Simulation. I have been trying to create a lift curve for a wing. I have not figured out how to do that. Any help is greatly appreciated! Thanks, Joe T. All, I have been watching a lot of videos on how to use Flow Sim. Some are very good. But, I still have a lot of questions. Also, there have not been any responses to my original question:&... Hello, I'm trying to run a what if analysis in flow simulation looking at temperature, pressure and relative humidity. When I go to select my input variables I can see Pressure and Temperature, but not option ... Hello, I am trying to decrease one component's temperature. To do so, I have designed with SolidWorks an aluminium enclosure and now I want to simulate with Flow Simulator whether this enclosure is he... When trying to run a Rotational Local region (Sliding) I get a SOLVER ABNORMALLY TERMINATED! Please contact the support service. Here is some information on the setup. Total cells 17,728 Internal Air ... Hi everyone. So I have an interesting problem that I have tried to scale down from the actual experimental setup. The new experimental test chamber I am using is a rectangle with a fan fixed inside of it (test.png). A... I have done internal flow simulation for one of the control valves in fully opened condition. The inlet and outlet pressure are 3.5 kg/cm2 and 2.5 kg/cm2 respectively and i have applied local mesh near valve cross sec... I've set up a flow simulation of a cooling block (with water running through) of a system to export fluid convection to simulation for heat analysis. Everything works and seems about right; the fluid temperature rise... I can't seem to reuse the adaptive mesh that was found from an initial study. The only thing changing between simulations is the inlet pressure on one of the boundary conditions. I'd like to be able to perform an init...
