Romel Cumare Apr 21, 2016 7:08 AM (in response to Manjunathan Sivasubramanian)Hello Manjunathan,
I haven't seen any specific simulation for what you are asking for. I would used SW to get volume displacements and masses to calculate buoyancy using the equations manager. You could also do a design study on the part to calculate the volume and weight needed to stay in the same position. Hope this helps.
Regards,
Romel

Is it possible to find the acceleration the object using this software?
Let say i have a object with mass 4 kg and volume as 1 M^3. The displaced water would be 1000KG.
The buoyancy would be 996*9.8=9760N. from this acceleration would be a=F/m=9760/4=2440 m^2/s;
does solidworks software helps to find the exact acceleration of this object? and does acceleration changes as per the depth ? if so does the software finds the same.
thanks once again,
regards,
Manjunathan.S

Amit Katz Apr 21, 2016 2:18 PM (in response to Manjunathan Sivasubramanian)This is a job for calculus, not simulation.

Ok. If this is to be calculated by ourself or software provides us the answer. Then in this case let say there is a solid ice floating on the surface, our requirement is the object has to come out of the surface. to know the impact of the object exert some force on the ice and do analysis whether the object can withstand or not ? can we run the simulation and see what is the force it exert on the ice or again do we need to calculate it manually?
and also study the object whether it can width stand at a particular depth?
thanks once again.

Amit Katz Apr 25, 2016 8:12 AM (in response to Manjunathan Sivasubramanian)You can use basic calculus and physics to determine the buoyancy and therefor the acceleration of the object (assuming it is immersed in water and we can safely neglect changes in density of the fluid.) This will allow you to calculate the speed and therefore the momentum of the object when it reaches the layer of ice.
1. Whether or not the ice will break, well I don't know how to find out that answer. That's impact analysis and I'm sure somebody knows, but you won't find the answer with Flow Simulation, of that I'm sure.
2. As for the issue of the solid under hydrostatic pressure, you should use an FEA package for that. SolidWorks Simulation can handle it, as can any other respectable FEA code.
