    Free Surface with SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation

    Michael Steeves

      The new free surface option in SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation 2018 is fantastic. Here's a simulation of pouring water from a water bottle into a mug. Please share your animations to show off what you've solved.

          Nice work, Michael! I really like how you compared it to the real world scenario.

          A slight improvement on this, if I may add, is that you can also show a surface plot of water volume fraction on the bottle and mug to give the appearance of the entire water volume inside the containers. I speak about this and others in my #sww18 presentation SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation 2018 Need2Know, Mon 2/5 at 4:30p PST.
