    No Uniform Pressure Distribution

    Bryan Schopf

      Am curious if there is anyway in Solidworks simulation to apply a pressure based on the angles of a surface?

       

      Attached is am image from another program where I have applied wind coefficients based off the angles of the curved surface and a direction in space.

          You mean something like: "if angle of face is less than 10deg, apply 1MPa; if angle of face is greater than 10deg, apply 2MPa." ?

          I really have not heard of something like this in SOLIDWORKS. I think you'd have to do this manually with split lines and individual clicking of the faces. Draft Analysis from the Evaluate tab could get you quick readouts of the face angles at least.
